James MCCOLLUM married Margaret GANN. There children were Emma Alice, Gertrude M, Harvey, Sadie?, Nora, Mollie, and Albert. I have James in the 1880 census. By the 1900 Richmond Township, Ray County, Missouri, I've lost him. The census has Margaret MCCOLLUM as head of household, but I'm unable to read the relation. I don't know if she's a widow or if James is just out of the picture. In the 1910 Richmond Township, Ray county, Missouri, Margaret is listed as a widow, and living with her daughter Gertrude. Looking for any help in locating the descendants of Margaret and James MCCOLLUM. I am related through their daughter Emma.
