Joel E. Readman Friday, January 7, 2000
My g-grandfather came from VA in the late 1820s probably by the Wilderness Road to Nashville and then the Natchez Trace to Natchez.  In the 1830 MS census of Natchez there is a George W. REDMAN listed, and I would like to ask if any one is researching this person.
My George, on October 17, 1830, married in Avolleyes Parish, LA.  I believe that my g-grandfather came from VA to LA via Natchez, but can't make the link for sure.  Can anyone help me with this puzzle?

I am looking for info pertaining to my g g granduncle, Christian SCHWARTZ. He was a prominent figure in Adams Co. (Natchez) until his death in 1890. I would like to know if he is written up in any family histories or Adams Co. history, etc. I would dearly love to have a photo of him. None of his family is in the "Victorian Children of Natchez".
