Reader seeks enlightenment on Gum Grove


Where is or was Gum Grove? I know of Walnut Grove.

s/Ken Page

Mr. Page, this issue also troubles me a great deal. I am in the same quandary. I know that two giant figures of present day Adair County, Mr. Rollin Coomer and Mr. Joseph Gadberry, got headstarts on the rest, even we townies, at Walnut Grove. But I am not well versed in matters Gum Grove; which is to say I plead almost total ignorance. Maybe a reader will enlighten us; or, you might ought to do as I am wanting to do: Show up at the reunion and find out. -EW
