Long obit of Dana L. KRUM
(Elmira NY paper/?) [April 1896]
    Died in Elmira, was born April 6, 1844 in Slaterville, Tompkins county.
His parents removed to Owego when he was nine years of age.....when about

(no date but around 1883 Tompkins County NY)
   The following paragraph appears in a recent issue of the Democrat "Mr. Henry KRUM
called your correspondent's attention to a communication which appeared in the Democrat
of Feb. 24, in regard to the aggregate ages of the Proper Bros., of Searsburg.  Mr. KRUM said: ' I know 'em all, but I can beat it. I have seven brothers and sisters all living. Catharine COLEMAN, of Iowa, is 70 years old. Stephen KRUM, of Indiana, is 76. Sarah QUICK, 64, A.P. KRUM 76, and L.D. KRUM 68, are all living in this state. Ruth JOHNSON, of Pennsylvania is 61, another sister living in Ohio is 70.  I am 83 and my wife is 84; she works every day and never uses glasses. So you see our aggregate age is 659 years. We are all born in Ulster county of this state, and I may add,' said the old gentleman, "we are all democrats."  In relation to the above, and correcting several of its statements,
            Mr. L.D. KRUM asks the JOURNAL, to give room to the following:

    We desire to inform the editor of the Democrat, that the notice in his
issue of the first week in March in regard to the "KRUM family" is incorrect.
Of the family of twelve children eight are still living. Namely:
    Mr. Henry KRUM, of Slaterville, N.Y. aged 81 years.
                      Mrs. Catharine COLEMAN, of Iowa, aged 78 years.
                      Mr. Stephen KRUM, of Indiana, aged 74 years.
        Mrs. Eliza SLAUGHTER, of Cleveland Ohio, aged 66 years.
    Mrs. Sarah M. QUICK, of Ulster County N.Y. aged 65.
                      Mr. A.P.KRUM, of Elmira, N.Y. aged 62 yers.
                      Mr. L.D. KRUM, of Ulysses N.Y. aged 58 yers.
                      Mrs. Ruth JOHNSON, of Troy, Pa., aged 57 years

    The aggregate of their ages is 540 years.
Mr. Henry Krum and Mrs. Coleman were born in Ulster county, the others that are living were born in Tompkins county at the old homestead near Slaterville,
now owned by Aaron Schutt, of Dryden.

    Henry and A.P. KRUM are democrats and Stephen and L.D. KRUM are staunch
republicans therefore in regard to politics they are evenly divided. Mr.
Henry KRUM was the oldest child of the family. He is much noted for his keen
sight and remarkable memory. Now at the advanced age of 81 years he reads
without glasses and his memory is better than many who are years his junior.
His wife was Harriet ROUNSEVILLE. She is 80 yers of age, and like her
husband, does not use glasses.  She was the first child in the town of
Caroline. Mr. L.D. KRUM and Mrs. Ruth JOHNSON are the two youngest members of
the family. In five different states of the union are living members of the
