    Notes 
    • Wynema McGrew writes that he was named for his grandfather, and called "Lum." He filed for a homestead grant and was given 160 acres just south of his brother, James Calvin, on Lapine Road. In Dec. 1910, he deeded this property to John McGrew, a son of William L. McGrew, who was a son of George Washington McGrew. As of the 1910 census, Columbus G. and Lisabeth J. had been married 28 years and had three children, two of whom were living. [The number and status of their children agrees to the 1900 census.] Only Thomas E. was still at home. Columbus was a farmer and owned his farm free of mortgage and Thomas was listed as a farm laborer.
