WOOTEN, POSEY, FELDER, LEWIS
I am looking for researchers interested in Wooten, Posey, Felder and Lewis
with connection in the Franklin, Copiah and Adams County areas. The Felder
line goes back to Switzerland. Wooten, Posey and Lewis should be easy to
find since they were Justice of the
Peace and Constables. Felder was an American Patriot. Verna Wooten

Debbie Cranfield-Waters June 17, 2003
My name is Debbie Cranfield-Waters and my email is
I am looking for some information on the Cranfield store that was located outside of Natchez. In 1930, it was being run by my grandfather, William J. Cranfield and his wife, Bobbi. I believe it may have been run by a J. D. Cranfield who may or may not be the father to William J. Cranfield.
William J. Cranfield and family are on the 1930 census for Adams County in Enumeration District #6.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Joseph B. Lyons was a
doctor from Adams County, MS who died in 1837 at age 45. He was married to
Aurora Cox in 1818. I am trying to determine if this Dr. Joseph B. Lyons
is the same Joseph B. Lyons who was born about 1790, son of Guthridge B. Lyons.
Guthridge Lyons was a ferry operator along the Cumberland River in Montgomery
Co., TN. Any help with the LYONS family appreciated.

DUNNEGAN (St. Mary's Orphan Asylum)
Not sure if this will help but I am looking for a Pauline Dunnegan who, according to the 1930 census records was living at St. Mary's Orphan Asylum in Natchez. I have no idea if this home or any of the records are still available but would like to find out where to start looking if anyone can help. According to the census records in 1930 she was about 10 years old and that is all the information I have on this. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks,
I am searching for information about St. Mary's Asylum in Natchez. Specifically the name of Pauline Dunnegan or Paridie or Parilie Dunnegan. They were both at St. Mary's when the 1930 census was held. Is this Dunnegan name a local name. Their parents were listed as Frank and Mattie Dunnegan. Godmother was Mrs. Henry Carson. Any information or help would be appreciated.
