RUSSUM: I have a picture of Mary Edith RUSSUM, taken by Lutes Gallery, 527 Kansas Ave., Topeka, Shawnee Co., Kansas. I am guessing the date to be in the mid 1800's. The was sent to Mary Jane RUSSUM HAYLETT in Franklin, PA> Mary Edith is wearing a wedding band, so I am not sure if RUSSUM is her married name. Mary Jane Russum Haylett came from Wilmington, DE to Pennsylvania after she married James Haylett. Please contact me if you have any information about her.
