    Notes 

    • (1) Elizabeth Ann Grubb:

      NOTES:

      Per M. Steininger: James Samuel married 5 times. His marriage to Celicia Allen is the only one listed in "Fulton County Marriage Index, p. 715. R. WILLIAMS was unable to find any death data in Fulton Co. for this James or for Celicia.

      Ms. WILLIAMS did find one "James" Samuel MOW who died in 1852; but this would have been before the birth of this James. Compiler suspects this death was for John Samuel MOW rather than James. (John was the grandfather of this James) Later, Wilma FOLTZ located the place of death for James S. as OREGON.

      19 MAR 1913: James Samuel Mow "(unmarried) of Cornelius, County of Washington, State of Oregon . . ." sold Fulton Co. land on the banks of the Tippecanoe River to his brother, David B. Mow.

      11 June 1917, James Samuel's brother, Ulysses S.G. "Grant" MOW named James S. in his will--"I give and bequeath to my brothers David B. MOW, Marion L. MOW, James S. MOW, the sum of One Hundred Dollars. . . ."

      Wilma MOW FOLTZ reports that James Samuel is buried "between Astoria and Seaside, OR."

      Although it is not documented, the one-page history of the life of Robert Eden MOWE, the grandson of James Samuel, has the following information re "Samuel MOW":

      ". . . Robert's grandfather, Samuel MOW, moved from Fulton County, INDIANA to Vernonia, OR in March 1894. . . ."
