I live in the Mississippi Delta. I have been tracing my family history for many years. Some of the families I am researaching (all with southern roots) are: Bennett, James, Skelton, Newton, Howard, Hays, Garner, Little, Westbrook, Warrick, Long, Arbuckle, Blaylock, and Sullivan. If you have relatives in Carroll County and/or Montgomery County, Mississippi in the 1800s, chances are good that our lines cross.
Link to Beatrice Jones daughter Would it be possible for you to link Beatrice daughter Thelma Carlton (misspelled in the obituary as Carrollton). Her memorial number is 22247663. Thelma was married to my great uncle Johnnie L Carlton. Thanks
Hi Portia, I just noticed that Beatrice Bennett is your mom. What a lovely lady she is! She spends so much time visiting veterans, etc., including my father. Just wanted to say hi and wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.
RE: Solomon Bennett 1786-1852 I am a new ancestry member so learning the ropes, so to speak, but do include me on your tree viewing & I can do the same for you on Hardy etc info I have. I'm john_eslick75 on ancestry if that helps.
Solomon Bennett 1786-1852 I have evidence to indicate Solomon was son of William Bennett 1750 SC - 1820 Lincoln Co TN and Lydia Unk 1758 SC - 30 Apr 1822 Lincoln Co TN. Was brother to my Elisha Bennett 1799 GA - 1857 Giles Co TN paternal 4th ggrandfather. Whereas Elisha was too young to server in the War of 1812 all other older brother did & were compensated with land in new territory in MS.
Mary Hulda Hawkins Portia, unfortunately I know very little of my Mississippi family and my ancestors there. My father and all of his siblings left Winona in their teens. My grandparents were J D Collins and Sarah Herring Collins. They ran a gas station in downtown Winona. My grandfather also sold watermelons. His mother was Dovie Hawkins Collins. The only one of his siblings I knew was Montee Blaylock and of course her husband Lo Blaylock. I met my grandmother's brother J W herring but did not know until I was grown that J W was sheriff there. Most of my knowledge of family there has come from genealogy research ,especially Find A Grave. Thank you so much for putting another piece of my family puzzle in place. Charlotte
Mary Hulda Hawkins Portia, thank you so much for posting Mary Hulda Hawkins on Find A Grave (# 33311894).She is my great great grandmother. I have been searching for her for a long time. I was not raised in Mississippi and knew very little of my family from there. Thank you! Thank you! Charlotte
Howard's I'm also a Howard from Carroll co. line. I also live in the delta. I see you have been doing this a lot long than I and was wondering if you know anything about Lott H Howard family, or John Q A Howard both from Carroll Co. Ms. I think my great grandfather is the James Howard age 1 in the 1880 census with Ellen, Sallie A. 17, Callie 14, Stephen 12, Allice 8, and grandson James 1. Thank You for any info you may have.
