RE: Fannie Harwood
Would have, if I could have found a memorial for Fannie. Yours was the closest thing I could find.

Fannie Harwood

I found the following in an old newspaper at the Library of Congress website:


At the residence of Dr. John S. Cain, in the city of Okolona, on Tuesday evening last, at 6 o clock
after a long and painful illness, Miss Fannie Harwood, in the 13th year of her age. Miss Fannie was the last member of the family of our old friend, J M. Harwood, except himself. All have crossed the dark river. She was a bright, sweet little girl, intelligent beyond her years.
Our heart goes out in deep sympathy to the heart broken and desolate father. May God, in his infinite mercy, enable him to bear his additional, terrible affliction with resignation and Christian fortitude.

Pontotoc Democrat.

(reprinted in the Chickasaw Messenger, Okolona, MS March 24, 1881)

Thought this might be of interest to you.

Nathaniel Brown. Your surname list includes Brown, do you know anything about this Nathaniel Brown. My 3rd great grandfather was Charles R. Brown 1812 b.NC -1878 d.TX. This Nathaniel could be me Charles R. Brown's father.
His family were in MS by 1845, according to state census and Land records of Noxubee county, MS.
