Looking for information on Clifton Clyde HAZLEWOD who married Ella Janet JONES in Natchez, MS, and they had five children:  Normal, Ruth, Sidney, Wince, and Glen.  Ella was born in 1871.  I'm guessing they married in the 1890s. Clifton was killed at a young age;  therefore; Ella had to put 3 of her children (one of which was my grandfather, Norman HAZLEWOD,) in the Methodist Children's Home in Ruston, LA.  I have been told he was killed in 1911 in a hunting accident and burried in Natchez.  He was known to work around the town mills.  Thanks
