Seven Things about Myself

If it weren’t for my mother, Nancy Gertrude Brumley Weik I would not be writing a blog about Brumley Branches Family Genealogy today. She is the one who got me “hooked” to a hobby I have loved since 1983 and I know she would be proud of me today to see how I have taken our love of family history to a new level.

I am a mother of a daughter – Keri who lives in Polk City, Iowa which I adore more than any words I could write on any given day.

Retired now after thirty-one years in the education field; twenty-one years working in the Grandview C-4 School District and ten years working at Johnson County Community College.

My hobbies besides genealogy is having fun with the grandchildren, traveling, sewing and crochet and learning new computer technology.

I love dogs, Beagles especially but have had other breeds of dogs in my life that were just as special and most of them have been rescued dogs – I recommend it to anyone.

My husband and I will be starting out on a journey at the end of October in which we have never traveled – Yuma, Arizona. We have a 5th wheel residential trailer and will become “Snowbirds” for the winter months since Missouri/Kansas gets rather snowy as it did last year. We are looking forward to “stepping out of the box” and to travel down a road less traveled, at least for us. My Brumley Branches Blog will be coming with me!

Friday Faces From the Past

Friday Faces for Brumley Branches

Friday Faces

Alice Florence Brumley Robinson

Friday faces from the past has been like a mystery woman to our family for many years. Her name is Alice Florence Brumley and she was born on March 27, 1872 somewhere around Osage County, Missouri to Willis Brumley and Nancy Vaughan-Lowery-Lewis. Wills Brumley had several wives over the years Nancy was his 3rd wife and Alice Florence was the only child they had together. Her other step-siblings were; William “Bill”, Nancy Ann “Aunt Coon”, Amanda Elizabeth “Mandy”, John and Isaac Walter (my Great-Grandfather) Brumley.

Her mother Nancy Vaughan-Lowery-Lewis was born about 1839 in Gasconade County, Missouri.

As per the Missouri Census from 1870 and forward they lived in the Osage County area. Willis married for the 4th time in 1874 in Osage County, Missouri. We do not have any record of Nancy’s death or if Willis got divorced. By the 1880 Census in Jefferson, Osage County, Missouri the step-siblings including Alice Florence was living with Willis and his new wife Delaney Foster Harris. Willis died around 1899-1900. Alice Florence in 1880 would have only been 9 years old. My mother and I have lost the trail to Nancy Vaughan-Lowery-Lewis, Alice Florence Brumley and Delaney Foster Harris after 1880.

Alice Florence Brumley married Richard Nathaniel Robinson in 1895 and the Missouri Census of 1900 shows them living in Union, Franklin, Missouri with two children one child named George Robinson.

My mother, Nancy Gertrude Brumley Weik and I learned from cousins that they vaguely remember her traveling by train with a young son from somewhere to see relatives occasionaly.

I would love to hear from anyone who knows anything about Alice Florence Brumley Robinson, Nancy Vaughan-Lowery-Lewis or Delaney Foster Harris.
