52 Ancestors: #26 - Mary Olive Teague Reese Severs (1871 IN – 1906 KS)

Mary Olive Teague was born on 1 Aug 1871 in Spencer County, Indiana to Elijah and Eliza Teague.  In the 1880 census, Mary and her family were in Buffalo, Newton County, Missouri. 
On 1 Aug 1886 Mary married Daniel Reese (or Reece) in Benton County, Arkansas.  I don’t believe they had any children.  I don’t know if Daniel died or if they got a divorced.
On 12 Oct 1891, Mary Olive married Jacob Henry Severs in Neosho, Newton County, Missouri.  In the 1900 census, Mary was enumerated as Tige and she and Jacob had 4 children.  Two more children were born but Mary died at the time that their daughter Mary was born in1906. This daughter also died at this time.

The children of Jacob Henry Severs, sometimes called James H. Severs, and Mary Olive were these:
Emma Mae Severs, 1892-1957 – married William Buford “Boots” Bumgardner about 1910 in Kansas. She then married Robert James Hatcher in 1926.
Elijah Daniel Severs (1895-1971).  Elijah married May Lucille, last name unknown.  They both died in Seattle, King County, Washington.  I believe they had one daughter, Carra Severs, born about 1925.
Mattie Neice Severs (1895-1975)married Leander Hudgin on 17 Sep 1915 in Cowley County, Kansas.  They had three daughters: Shirley, Mary, and Ruby.
Mamie Ivy Severs (1898-1906) died in Gueda Springs, Kansas, at age 8.
Jess Harlan Severs (1901-1968) married Katherine Elizabeth Trice on 6 June 1925 in Pittsburgh, Crawford County, Kansas. They had two daughters.

Jacob Henry Severs married Dollie Getrude Collins on 23 February 1924 in Newton County Missouri. However, in a marriage record on the notes state that James Henry Severs married Dollie Gertrude Stenfield on that date.  Therefore, I don’t know of Dollie was married before she married Jacob or not.  I do know that Jacob and Dollie divorced before 1940 because she married William Franklin Christian.
I am descended through Jess Harlan.  If you would like to share information, please contact me.  I would like to collaborate with you.
