Biography of Edgar C. Nuzum.
Edgar C. Nuzum came to White Cloud in 1854 from Morgantown, West Virginia. His wife, Sarah Sifers Nuzum, was brought with her parents at the age of two to Weston, Missouri in 1839. George Nuzum, his business partner, was the second oldest of their ten children. The other sons, Jesse 0. and Flavel C, also joined the father and son in business at a later time. The records in the collection were acquired through his grandson, Lowell Kelley (his daughter was married to James P. Kelley). The Nuzums entered the banking business in 1886, and in 1890 opened a large mercantile business which continued in business until 1893 when it was sold to Kelley Bros. Other interests included a hardware store, a flour and grist mill, a livery barn, and a blacksmith shop, et
