His very sad obit prompted me to look up Ernest's probable parents...

Harry DUMFORD born 24 Nov 1882 Stonelick Twp Clemont Co OH to George & Ellen "Ella" (CAROLL) DUMFORD; died 30 Oct 1951, buried Sugar Grove Cemetery, Wayne Co IN; married 23 Aug 1915 Wayne Co IN to Nettie GIBSON born 23 Aug 1915 Wayne Co IN to Thomas Jefferson & Matilda (MATTHEWS) GIBSON; died 24 Mar 1962, buried Earlham Cemetery. Richmond directories show the family living there through 1925, but on the year Ernest was born, 1927, it only lists Nettie. She is listed on the 1930 census living with her brother, Lewis GIBSON, and Ernest is in that household, so apparently Harry and Nettie were separated. The 1958 Richmond directory shows Ernest DUMFORD and Nettie, DUMFORD, widow of Harry, living at 621 North 18th Street.

Sincerely, Mark Parsons
