      Myrtle Black Sackett

      We don' t know if it was an official adoption or not, but David Sackett listed Myrtle Desdamona (see correction below) Black as a daughter on the 1900 census. She was the daughter of Thomas Lewis Black and Mollie Holiday. Thomas went to Oklahoma in the land rush of 1892. He adopted out his youngest three daughters to farm families in Sumner county, KS..No one knows why and no body ever talked about it.

      Mrytle married Jacob Lee Clum (this writer's grandfather) in August of 1900.

      David was apparently very kind to Myrtle as he left her a qtr section of land, one mile south of Conway Springs, Sumner Co., KS in his will.


      Ted Smith adds: Myrtle's middle name was Ethel, and Desdamona was the middle name of her daughter, Myrtle Desdamona Clum.
