Felix Blackwell was born about the year 1801 in one of the Carolinas. He married Mary McCray who was born near the south line of South Carolina, date unknown. They moved to Mississippi. They were sharecroppers and reared a large family. They were always looking for a better place to live. Felix died in 1871. They are both buried in the southern part of Winn Parish. Several of Felix and Mary's children, who lived in Alabama and Mississippi, moved to Louisiana and most of them settled in the Free State of Winn, now Winn Parish. My great grandfather, John J. McCray Blackwell, was one of these children.
