I am tracing my husbands Lincoln lineage and have run into a dead end for several years now and am wondering if anyone might have some info that could help me find any leads. Ira Louis Lincoln was born in 1894 I believe somewhere in Texas, I have no clue who his father was and all I know about his mother is her first name of Ada. I do have a marriage license for her marrying another man in 1896 when Ira was 2 years old, the mans name was EW Crummey in Simms Texas. There was a child born in 1897 named William Crummey I believe is Ira's half brother. Then in 1900 the EW Crummey man married a different woman, I can not find a death record or divorce record of any kind for Ada and EW and there are no guardianship papers for Ira either, although EW continued to raise Ira until he reached the age of 16 ( proof in 1900 census) then in the 1910 census I find him a "ward" of the state in Oklahoma but living with a Robert Brunnon and his family. In 1912 he married Etta Leona Taylor fr!
om Simms, Texas and lived there for a number of years and had 6 children only 4 lived past the age of 1 and a half. their names are Herman, Mrytle, Roy T., and Hugh Carney. They also lived in the Horatio, Ark. area for awhile. In the courthouse in that county of Sevier I found where Ira was ordained into ministry for the Church of God. Ira died in 1947. The only things family can tell me is that he was known as Rev and they grew up thinking he was an orphan. My best conclusion is that maybe his mother died in childbirth with William Crummey, but this is only a guess. He is buried in Old Union Cemetery in Simms Texas beside his wife and 2 children that past at a young age , their names was Irene and Lewis. If anyone has any information it would just be a blessing . Sincerly, Wendi Lincoln
