DENSON / WHITTINGTON
Trying to locate death and burial information for Jordan (or JJ) Denson and Lucy Ann Whitington Denson. Lucy died between 1910 and 1920, as Jordan is listed as a widower on the 1920 census in the Oneal Precinct, Beat 3, Amite County, MS. Jordan is not listed on the 1930 census and since he was born in June 1857, I assume he has already passed on. Lucy was born in Sep 1850. These dates are from the 1900 census, I have very limited information on them and any information would be a great help. Jordan is the son of Marcus Tullius Denson and Mary Smith. On one census, there is also an indication that this is his second marriage, since he is on the 1870 and 1880 censuses with his father in Adams Co, I can only assume that I've found his first wife, when he married her in 1870 in Adams Co. Since he married Lucy in 1895 in Amite Co, I can only assume that that's where she was and that his first wife may have died in Amite Co as well. The 1900 and 1910 censuses indicate that Lucy had no children and I find no information concerning any children for him either. Although, I do realize that if he had a child who died around the time his first wife did, there would not be any record, unless there is a stone in a cemetery. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for any information that you can locate. Please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

Munson, Everett, Johnson, Hunter, and Pearce circa 1800-1820 The Munson brothers, Jesse and Robert, had sons who married into Everett, Johnson, and Pearce families in the early days of the settling along the Bayou Sara area. The children remained in the area for several generations of the Johnson and extented families. Micajah and Henry William Munson were sons of Jesse.who migrated to Texas in 1820. Telfair Munson was a son of Robert. William Chaney was the family legal advisor. They are recorded in Gov. Lemons Villa Gayso in the 1790's under a Spanish interpertation of Munson.
