Sarah E. Stumph and her husband, Elias B.Criss, married in Osage County,
KANSAS in April of 1872.  This wife and husband were in the Lindsay, Okla area and show up
on the Pottawatamie census, federal for 1900. This censuus, shows 8 of 13 children living.
Elias B. Criss died in Pawhuska, Okla. in the home of his daughter Annie Pearl Criss Sumpter,
wife of John Elias Sumpter. Both father and son-in-law were in the Civil War. Sarah E. Stumph
Criss was born 1852 in Ohio and died we think in 1909 in the Lindsay area. Elias died in 1938
and is buried in the Pawhuska cemetery. I do not believe he has a civil war monument-nor
does his son-in-law, John E. Sumpter who died in 1941 and also is buried in Pawhuska City Cemetert?

Bible record of Rease Gullet of Tennessee

Note: In most of the papers of this family the name is spelled Gullett (two t's). However this Mr.Evans --with his penmanship--clearly spells the name Rease and Gullet (with one t). The pen goes up and comes down leaving two perpendicular marks not on top of each other--more like a tall skinny V ( but upside down) with one cross mark which is whipped across the top of the 't' from the curved bottom of the down stroke. 
STATE OF TENNESSEE: this day personally appeared before County of Dekalb: me, E.J. Evans Clerk of the county Court in the county and state aforesaid, W.T. Gullet, a person who I certify to be entitled to full faith and credit on his oath. Being duly sworn according to law deposes
