Other facts


Birth of daughter Living DUMOND


  • Hassie's great granddaughter provides Hassie's last name from what appears to be family source.  The middle initial in Julie's genealogy, which is an error, appears to come from the 1920 census, where for some reason Hassie is Hassie E Dumond.  The maiden name of Sermons appears only here.  Hassie's surname was Lee.  I have seen this name Sermons no where else.

    1900 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 4 June, DeWitt, District 4, page 3B, Public Square, Hse #62, Fam #67
    Bringle, Madison Head W M  Feb 1848  52 Married 17 years AR AR MO Mail Carrier Owns
    Bringle, Emma Wife W F Jany 1850  40 Married 17 years 1 children/1 living KY OH IN
    Bringle, Minnie Dau W F  Oct 1887  12 Single AR AR KY
    Lee, Hasse [sic] G-dau W F  Apr 1896  4 Single AR AR TN

    Note that the record reports that Emma has had only one child, but that cannot be correct.  There is one daughter in the home, only 12 years old, and there is a granddaughter in the home, with a different last name.  So it appears that Emma has one other daughter at least, who married someone named Lee.

    Perhaps Hassie Lee's mother died.  And maybe Emma is the second wife of Madison Bringle and Hassie Lee is Madison's granddaughter but not Emma's.  I have not found information on those questions.

    1920 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 4 February, DeWitt Town, LaGrue Township, District 12, page 14A, South Union St, Hse #282, Fam #295

    Dumond, Roy E Son M W 6 AR AR AR [abt 1904]
    Dumond, Edward L Son M W 5 AR AR AR [b abt 1905]

    I note that in this census Roy is reported as older than Edward.  Note the different relative ages reported in the 1930 census.  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.

    From the beginning and ending dates of the Essex Funeral Home Register, I was initially able to determine that Hassie Dumond died between 14 Feb 1978-25 Feb 1981.

    In May 2008, I found Hassie's Social Security Death Index information giving her exact birth date, as well as the month and year of death.  Hassie's residence address at the time of death was DeWitt, Arkansas.  She applied for her Social Security number after the death of her husband.
