I am looking for the parent's of Daniel Chance who was born March 17,1821. The census record list's his birth state as LA in Feliciana Parish but I just found out that this was part of Amite County, Ms before the separation. There have been nothing but dead ends in LA so maybe he was really born in Amite County, MS. Is there anyone that can shed some light on this man?

CAMPBELL / MITCHELL / OWEN
I am looking for any information on Edwin CAMPBELL and/or spouse Fatima MITCHELL/OWEN CAMPBELL. Her maiden name could be either MITCHELL or OWEN, I am not sure. My grandmother told me that Edwin and Fatima lived in Peoria, MS. She advised that Edwin was known as "Big Ed" and was very active in the Masonic Lodge. Census records show Edwin and Fatima in Pontotoc County, MS in 1860 and Tallahatchie County in 1870. In the 1880 census, Edwin was living in Ellis County, TX. Fatima died in 1879. I cannot find any corroboration that Edwin and Fatima lived in Peoria or Amite County, but my grandmother was quite sure. One of their children, Thomas Franklin CAMPBELL, is my great-grandfather. Any information you can provide would be very much appreciated. Fort Worth, Texas

BAILEY / ROBINSON
Jacob BAILEY was on of my 2nd great-grandfathers. His wife was named Charlotte and in 1870 they, along with their children, were living in Amite County. They had moved to Franklin County by 1880, and later to Lincoln County. Some of the family also later lived in Pike County. Some of their children were Dellie, Martha, Alfrey, Emma, Stephen, Nancy, Eugene (my great-grandfather) Ebernezar, Esau and Rebecca. A stepson of Jacob was named George ROBINSON. I would like to communicate with anyone who has knowledge of, or an interest in this family. The Willie L. Robinson Family Home Page can be reached at: Home Page Let me hear from you.

I am searching for any information on Sarah Jane Germany and Adaline A, Germany. I know that they are the daughters of John Germany and Elizabeth Jane Morris, and that they were born in Neshoba County, MS. John Germany had a sister named Elizabeth that married a LAND of Amite County, MS. They had a son named John Land that died without marrying. His estate in Amite County was left to at least two of the children of John Germany, namely Sarah Jane and Adaline A. Sarah Jane was married to David Hugh(e)s and Adaline A. was married to David's son, William A. Hugh(e)s. Their Power of Attorney was written to Willis Germany April 25, 1866. Both Hughes families moved from Leake County, MS to Lincoln County, MS sometime after 1866 as they are all listed on the 1870 census in Lincoln County, MS. David Hughes died, according to family tradition, about 1873. Some say in Amite County, some say Lincoln County. His widow, Sarah Jane, is in Pike County in 1880 with her 5 youngest children. Since all of these counties are so close together, I guess it is possible that she didn't move, that the name of the county just changed. Any information on these families would be helpful. Susan Hughes
