    Baker, Bessie Leora:

       Wife of John Larkin Franks, and mother of Mary Ellen Franks. She was born March 7, 1888 in Dade County, Boonville, Arkansas. She was married May 2, 1903 in Oklahoma. She died May 2, 1920 in Pegg's, Cherokee County, Oklahoma.
    Alton Shrum e-mailed me an article from the web page:
    http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~timmons/
    in which the tornado that took Bessie's life is documented in a newspaper article reprinted at the site. The article, from "The Arrow-Democrat", May 7, 1920, states that the Cyclone was on Sunday, May 2, 1920. 43 bodies were interred in the New Home Cemetery. It further states that Leo Franks (boy), and Larkin Franks were injured, Mrs. Larkin Franks (Bessie) and two children perished in the Cyclone.

    Baker, Jacob:

       He came from PA, then MO, TN, AR, and OK. (Per Leona Adams: Genealogy.com Aug. 5,2000;"Re:Mary J Brim m: John W Baker in TN or PA.").

    Baker, John Williamson:

       Reputed to be a Choctaw Indian, and a guide/scout for the U.S. Army.( Information from Judy Kelley: Mary Jane Brimm's family bible quoted from Genealogy.com; March 6 2000:"Re:Mary J Brimm m: John W Baker in TN or PA".).

        Charles Baker had a message dated July 4th, 1999 (cbaker@sprhill.net) stating that he was looking for a John W. Baker who had land patents and a homestead in sect. 13 twn. 14S. range 19W in 1855, 1857, and 1876. This would have been about three miles from Buena Vista, in Quachita Co., AR. He says that his g.grandfather Absalom Baker would go to Camden from Lafayette Co. once a year in the 1850's and buy groceries, on the way back, he always stopped by Buena Vista to visit his half-brother John, who was originally from TN. Possibly the same John W. Baker?

    Franks, Mrs. Larkin:

      Peggs Oklahoma Destroyed By A Tornado
    (Taken from an e-mail from Alton Shrum, recieved 11/6/2004 Which he discovered at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~timmons/ )
       This is a transcription of an article in The Arrow-Democrat, on May 7, 1920. The Cyclone was on Sunday, May 2, 1920. This transcription was made to make the article more readable.

  • What was once a pretty village is now a mass of ruins. Desolation is all there is to see. There is only broken concrete walls left standing in the south part of town. Under thoses some goods can be seen, the largest part is scattered, no one knows where.      

  • The school house that stood west of town, erected last year at a cost of $3, 500 and made of cement blocks, is partly standing. The east side and both ends are down. The roof and furniture was carried away. What was a fine field of wheat Sunday evening was nearly barren of even the soil Monday morning. The wheat, soil, trees and everything removable was carried away with the storm. This accounts for the mud-splattered condition of everything. Animals that survived the storm were mud-covered. These, however were remarkably few, and how any living animal could have been in the path of the storm and still survived is a wonder.

  •  Deputy Sheriff A. K. Ralston early Monday morning organized a force of about 75 volunteers to dig graves and in twenty four hours 18 bodies were placed therein, and Tuesday evening the work was completed, having buried 43 bodies in the New Home Cemetery. All the Stevens family, 11 in number dead, was lowered into one large grave. Eight was next highest number placed in another. Three were buried in the cemetery north of Peggs and Dr. Hill and the two Watkins children were interred at Gideon. In one house that had been badly damaged lay twenty mud-covered bodies of men, women and children. Here at least, all was equal and similar in appearance: size seemed to be the only difference. This was the most horrible sight witnessed. Bruised, mashed, mutilated and mud-covered, some stripped of clothing. Men carried the bodies out one at a time, the females to a back room where well-dressed ladies, not ordinarily used to hard work, with sleeves rolled up above their elbows scrubbed away the sticky mud, and the male bodies were carried into the back yard where men cared for them in a manner as the ladies were doing for their sex. When washed the bodies were carried back to await their caskets. One seeing all this could not help but think after all that people really care for their fellow man. All the instructors and students that could find conveyances went to lend a hand.

  • The Post Office and drug store only remained open. Bank presidents, merchants, county officials and men of all calling worked elbow to elbow in the work of mercy. Peggs people are in want, having lost their all, clothing, bedding, food and even cooking utensils. They need help and need it in the worst way. Their crops and stock are destroyed and they are without a way to earn a living unless these essentials are supplied. The ammounts subscribed are not sufficient for their needs. Temporarily every one has a bare sufficiency, but later how can their hunger be satisfied unless the people come to resue more liberally.

  • One hundred persons were more or less disabled and of this number at least fifty were badly hurt, of which 32 are in hospitals at Tahlequah and Muskogee. The following is a list of the injured and where they may be found: Talequah Hospital: W. W. Hudson and wife, John Hudson (son), Mrs. John Hudson and baby, Jilson Littlefield and three children, Frank Littlefield, Lavere Littlefield, Delores Littlefield, Clebourne Lewis, John Butler, Mrs. Gabbard, Mrs. H. W. Suttle, Leo Franks (boy), Larkin Franks, "baby" Wagner, Mrs. Watson and child, "baby" Stephens slightly injured taken to Locust Grove, Banbtist Hospital in Muskogee: James Wilkinson, Pete Wilkinson, Virginia Wilkinson, Mrs. Roxie Wilkinson, The M. O. & G Hospital in Muskogee: J. A. Wagner, Virgie Wagner, Vina Wagner, Vernice Wagner. The P & S Hospital in Muskogee: Charles Stephens, Homer Stephens, R. J. Stephens, "baby" Littlefield. The injured at Locust Grove are: Ten were brought to Locust Grove last night. With the exception of William Littlefield and wife, who are seriously injured, all were slightly hurt. Those at Locust Grove include the missing "Stephens Baby". Their names as well as those left at Peggs were not available.

  •  What was a pretty prosperous and peaceful town called Peggs, 18 miles north and west of Talequah, in Cherokee County, is a desolate, barren waste today. It's buildings laid low, ornamental trees uprooted and homes wrecked. Fourty-nine of Pegg's population lie sleeping under the sod: 35 more lie broken and bleeding in hospital beds and private residences, while many others have cuts and bruises on heads and bodies. Sunday evening, May 2nd, was exceedingly warm, otherwise Peggs was happy and at 8:30 the air was filled with a blinding flash after flash of lightning, accompanied by a storm of hail stones, people thought it only an electrical storm display. But horror, when a great roar was heard. Some knew the full meaning that of a cyclone. A few minutes later those that were able commenced a search for loved ones and when found, torn and mangled, they were unrecognizable. Some without clothes, only shoes. Dead and dying everywhere. Some blown or carried some distance, while others were left where the awful tornado had found them. But how far they had been carried and returned never will be known. Stunned beyond grief, those that were able to begin the search and when body after body was found, only by the size could they be placed or nammed. All wires being down, word had come in person most of the way.

  • At dawn every surgeon in Talequah was present and what as sight can hardly be imagined and impossible to describe. The dead found and those dying afterwards were : John Littlefield-age 72, Mrs. Jilson Littlefield-30, Willie Littlefield-19, Jennie Littlefield-17, Mattie Littlefield-14,Seggie Littlefield-11, Don Littlefield-12, Dr. Hill-55, Mrs. M. E. Hines-60, Mrs. Bell Wagner-33, Lillian Wagner-14, Rolla Wagner-9, Nancy Stevens-46, Walsie Stevens-81, Ola Stevens-23, Roscoe Stevens-22, Sam Stevens-21, Mamie Stevens-16, Fay Stevens-14, George Stevens-2, Mrs. Olla Ford-35, James Ford-1, Mrs. R. Hall-18, Jim Frank-40, Mrs. Donna Frank-45, Virgil Frank-8, Austin Watkins and brother-both boys, Mr. and Mrs. Will Blevins and baby, Mrs. Larkin Frank and two children, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Kenyon and daughter, Jack and Wallie Wilkinson-boys 12 and 14, Girl Wilkinson and two small boys, Jack Bond-20, Vernie Timmons-girl, Son of Henry Hudson, Monroe Frank-20.

  •  Talequah was appalled at the news early Monday morning. Every business house and office in town closed, every car was pressed into service. Before day every phsician was on their way and every nurse and those that had any training went. All wanted to help and they were not choice in any thing, only that they could be of service, do something to relieve the suffering of the injured and care for the dead. Arriving at the town, the first thing seen was the broken and fallen timbers, the large amount of dead stock, especially horses and hogs. From the south, looking into what was a town a few hours before, one could see nothing but destruction. Dead stock, rubbish of all kinds and not a single building in sight. The two large concrete stores lay in ruins with part of one corner still standing. What merchandise that was not covered with slabs of concrete was gone completely. In the north part of town a few residences stood or what was left of them. Into these wrecked homes the dead were carried and laid in rows, some partly clad, others with only their shoes left on them. The wind had taken the clothing from most of the victims but mercifully gave them a thick coat of mud. None of the bodies could be recognised until the mud had been removed and when it was it only revealed torn and mutillated bodies. Some so badly battered that it was impossible to distinguish one from the other.

  • Mrs. F. M. Miller and her family owe their lives to a small cellar, having taken refuge therein. After the storm a sorry sight presented itself as hose, barn and stock were gone. She loses everything, food, clothing and furniture. A conservative estimate of the loss is about $100,000. Mr. Dell Robinson is probably the heaviest loser and he thinks $10,000 will cover his loss. Other property losses are: J. R. Yarbrough, J. F. Musgrave, John Littlefield, Post Office, Tom Musgrave-grist mill: Wm. Napier-blacksmith shop, Peggs Gin Co., Isenogle Grist Mill and others, besides every dwelling was totally destroyed or damaged. Mr. Robinson intends to rebuild as soon as convenient and possibly others may start a new. The home of Geo. Medlin, who lives on the upper place of Mrs. Grace Wilson on the Illinois River was totally demolished by the tornado that destroyed Peggs. Mr. Medlin was injureds on the head and his 6-year-old daughter badly hurt. The rest of the family escaped with slight damages. He lost everything as the house was leveled to the ground.

    Schramm, Johann Jacob:

       He sailed for America aboard the ship "Davy",leaving Rotterdam, Holland with their children, and travelling via Cowes, England. They arrived in Phildelphia, Pennsylvania on October 25th, 1738. This year had been so devastating to the German emmigrants, that they named it "The year of the destroying angels", after Psalms 78, verse 49: "He let loose on them his fierce anger, wrath, indignation, and distress; a company of destroyiong angels."

       The Philedelphia Gazette published an article revealing the horrible circumstances of the trip; "The Captain,both mates, and 160 passengers had died at sea. The ship's carpenter, William Patton, brought the ravaged vessel up the Deleware; he lists 74 men and 47 women survivors."(no children were listed).

       Only 40 men were well enough to take the oath of allegience the next day; they included Jacob and his son George; (Nicholas and David also survived the voyage, but were not well enough to take the oath).

       In her will, Anna mentions her sons; George, David, Nicholas, and Johannes (born in America). The will is posted in 1754. Jacob and Anna settled near York, Penn. where Jacob died in 1748. Anna followed him in 1754; they are buried at Prospect Hill Cemetery, York, PA (eighty miles west of Philedelphia, PA). (familysearch.org Compact disc#: 19 Pin #: 276390).

    Schramm, Johann Nikolas:

       Christening: 1724, 1rst Evangical Reformed Church, Waldmohr. Burial: April 1793, Dry Fork of Goose Creek. Occupation: Pioneer to North Carolina, Plantation Owner. Religion: Reformed German Lutheran. Barbara Nunley lists Nicholas Shrum Jr. as the son of Nicholas Shrum and Margaret Helmic. John Shrum lists that Johannes Schramm and his wife moved from York Co., PA to Westmoreland Co. in 1772, and were pioneer settlers at Brush Creek, near Irwin. Gary Cumbie states: 30 July, 2001 "Johann Nickel came from Baden-Wurtemmberg (Schramberg)".

       An e-mail from Loretta Cozart via Ruth Kirby dated April 14, 2003 has the following quote from Tyron Co., NC minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions, 1769-1779 by Brent H. Holcomb (Columbia, SC:SCMAR, 1994) pg. 53.

    "Ordered by the Court that Nicholas Shram serve as Constable in the room of Jacob Carpenter and that he swear in before Jacob Casner Esqr' accordingly."
    Loretta states that she is satisfied that Nicholas served in the Revolutionary War in the above capacity, and may have received a land grant. If he accordingly served under a period recognized by the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution), he might also qualify for PS (Patriotic Service). Loretta's older sister thinks that Nicholas helped Peter at the Battle Of Kings Mountain, but no proof has surfaced as of yet.

       Source unknown; quoted from a scrap copy

    "A descendant from Joseph S. Shrum and Amy Fine, says that Jacob's sons Nicholas and Peter migrated from the Shanandoah Valley to the vicinity of King's Mountain in NC where both of them fought in the Battle Of King's Mountain. Nicholas' oldest son Peter also fought in this battle".

    Schramm, Peter:

       After the Thirty Years War (1618-1648), Peter Schramm married Apolonia Barth , and resided in Altenkirchen, a province of Kusel, Chur region of Rhineland-Pfalz (which later became known as the Palatinate).

       An e-mail from Hanss Volker Schramm from Germany states via e-mail that Peter Schramm quite possibly migrated with Apolonia to Altenkirchen from Strasbourg, France a village about 100 Killometers north of Altenkirchen, which has a large population of Schramm's. The census records from Altenkirchen from this period (1595-1684) show that the population dropped from 120 to 28 just after the Thirty Years War. I have found that the oldest recorded mention of the surname Shram, comes from Norway census records from 1250 a.d.
      Individual Report: Peter Schramm. Born About 1610 in Strasburg, France? Married Apolonia Barth 1655 in Altenkirchen, Rhineland-Pfalz. Died 1684 in Altenkirchen, Rhineland-Pfalz. Children:

  • Hanss Theobaldt Schramm (1646-After 6 Dec. 1708).
  • Anna Margaretha (Engel) Schramm (About 1654-14 Sep. 1731).
  • Hanss Caspar Schramm (1644-1 Apr. 1721).

    According to "Re: Shrums of southern Illinois" posted on Genealogy.com Shrum Family Genealogy Forum August 23, 1999 at 20:51:13, posted by John L. Shrum, in reply to: "Shrums of southern Illinois" by Margaret Mickelson.
    New information on Peter King Shrum has been turned up by hired resercher in Southern Illinois. Death cert. for Jacob Shrum of Jefferson CO. IL shows his father was Peter K. Shrum, mother listed as Ethel Ostin. Jno. K. Schrum is in Alexander CO., IL on 1850 census with 4 sons, including a Jacob of the correct age. Researcher says that 1850 IL agriculture census shows Peter K. Shrum owns the same property as the Jno. K. Schrum on the 1850 census. No other Shrum or Schrum named Jno. K.-am led to the conclusion that Jno. K. Schrum is probably Peter K. Shrum. Now we have the missing 1850 census information for Peter K. Shrum!
