  • Edward Luther went by his middle name Luther.
    --  Bertie Lois Dumond McSwain, letters and oral communication

    1900 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 14 June, Sugar Loaf Township, District 18, page 8B, Hse #137, Fam #141
    Dumond, Edward C Head  W M  Jan 1860  40  Married 15 years AR AR AR Farmer  Owns Farm
    Dumond, Emma C  Wife  W F Sept 1866  33 Married 15 years AR GA GA
    Dumond, Edward L  Son W M Dec 1889  10 AR AR AR Farm Laborer

    His son Edward L was also Edward Luther, and this was confirmed when I found a genealogy with many names and a few details by Julie Dumond, granddaughter of Edward Luther and Emma Purdy.  The name on the son's grave has Edward Luther Jr.  Various other Dumond family sources also have told us his name was Edward Luther.  Some genealogies report them as Senior and Junior.

    The family information indicates that Edward Luther's birthday is 22 December 1889.  This also matches the 1900 census.  But on his WWI Draft Registration in 1918, Luther reported his birth date as 22 December 1890.  On the WWII Registration, it is again 1889,  Both report the place of birth as Ethel, Arkansas.  His age is not reported on his marriage record.

    Luther married in 1912.  His wife is reported as Hassie Lee.  Some records and genealogies seem to indicate that Lee is the middle name, but the name on their marriage record is only Hassie Lee, indicating this was her maiden name.

    A genealogy by Julie Daniels reports Luther's wife as Hassie E Sermons.  I have seen no other genealogy or record that has a last name for her.  The middle initial E seems to come from the entry in the 1920 census, the only listing of her name with an E initial.  The only documented name is Hassie Lee.  But see the 1940 census below.

    I note that in this census Roy is reported as older than Edward.  This differs from the other censuses and other information giving their birth dates.  Records indicate Roy was born 16 Dec 1914, while Edward was born 18 June 1913.  Roy is reported as Roy E, differing from Roy L in the 1930 census.

    In the 1940 census an entry that appears to be for Edward Luther presents some problems.  The enumeration was in LaGrue Township, near DeWitt, where they were living in 1920.  This Luther seems to match her son Edward Luther Dumond, and Edward Luther's mother is living next door.  But the age is a little different, and his wife is Emma Teal, instead of Hassie Lee.  Teal step children in the home confirm the previous married name of Emma.

    But the death date I have for Hassie Lee is 1978.  So from the information in this 1940 census, it looks like Luther and Hassie divorced some time before 1934, about the time Esther Lottie was born to Luther and Emma Teal Dumond.  From the age of Lottie here, we can estimate that Luther married Emma Teal about 1933.

    In the 1940 census, Emma Miller is living alone next door to this Luther Dumond.  Her presence next door would seem to strengthen the possibility that this is her son Edward Luther Dumond, son of Edward Caliste Dumond.  But this Luther's age is a little off, and the wife is Emma instead of Hassie.

    I have seen no info about Hassie Lee in other sources, either, that would indicate a previous marriage to a Teal, or that she and Luther divorced.  Hassie Lee lived until 1978.  I have considered that there was another Luther Dumond born in about 1886, as Luther's 1940 age would indicate.  But I cannot find a place to put this Luther Dumond with the information now available.  Help is welcomed from family members who can clarify this.

    But his WWII Draft card in 1945 has the name of his contact person as Mrs. Emma Dumond.  This is usually the name of the registrant's wife if married.  This seems to indicate his wife's name was Emma, matching Emma Teal, the wife reported in the 1940 census.  So did Luther and Hassie divorce?  And why can I find no record?

    I later found one genealogy that reported Edward Luther's wife as Emma Chester Ross Teal.

    Emma Chester Ross Teal
    Birth 1-12-1895 in Arkansas

    This genealogy did not report another wife for Luther.  I referenced some of the records this genealogy cited.  I found the marriage record of Emma to George Teal.

    A memorial on Find a Grave has an entry with the same birth date indicating she is buried in Saline County (Benton area).  Death information indicates she died in Stuttgart, one of the county seats of Arkansas County.

    Another genealogy has Emma Ross with both her husbands, but has no information on Luther Dumond to clarify further.  There are also no marriage dates, and no documentation.

    Emma Chester Ross
    Birth 1-12-1895 in Arkansas, Death 11-14-1973 in Stuttgart, Arkansas, Arkansas

    --  Langston-Teal, http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/15726744/person/1540749031

    This genealogy has no information on Luther Dumond's family.  It indicates that George Teal, Emma's first husband, died in 1928.  This indicates he died while Emma was pregnant with their last child, Jimmie.

    George Dunlap Teal
    Birth 02-1861 in Gulledges, North Carolina
    Death 02-21-1928 in Dallas County, Arkansas

    Some of the Teal children are listed by name and some information.

    George D. Teal
    Birth 12-10-1915 in Carthage, AR
    Death 02-28-1995 in Newport, AR

    Death in Arkansas

    Jimmie Teal
    Birth 04-28-1929 in Arkansas
    Death 05-03-1994 in Arkansas

    This  Tommy would be the Thomas Chester listed in the Dumond household in the 1940 census.  Jimmie is James Wesley in the 1940 census.

    Edward Luther died one day before his 83rd birthday, on 21 December 1972.
