From: Don Holland ([email protected]@aol.com) October 20, 2002 I received the notice about the Revolutionary War and the Gums. The only thing that I have on them is from the book "Leaves From The Gum Tree" by Muriel Martens Hoffman. On page 43 this is the paragraph that is quoted: Known children of Jacob and Sarah Claypool Gum are Jacob; Abraham; Jehu; Norton; Comfort; Claypool; Shepherd; and Jesse. Records of another suit involving Jacob Gum and Jehue Gum lead us to believe that Jehue was the oldest living son in Virginia in 1783. His older brother, Jacob Gum, Jr. had gone to Kentucky abut 1779. He could have been a namesake of his mother's brother Jehu Claypool. Another brother, Claypool (Claypole) Gum had died during the Revolutionary War, leaving a widow and two infants. End Quote.
