CANANT / CANNET / CONANT / CONNANT
My husband's great grandfather, William CANANT, was born in Mississippi 17 Feb 1843, and we do not know which county, but think it may have been AMITE Co. He died 20 Apr 1821 in Cullman, AL. He was married to Amanda Missouri YEILDING b 5 Mar 1845 in AL, d 30 Nov 1943 Cullman Co, AL. Their son, John Melton CANANT b 26 Jan 1865 Walker Co, AL, married Mary J RATLIFF b 6 Sept 1865, d 24 June, 1929 LaMarque TX. I have found several RATLIFFs, which I believe are members of the same RATLIFF family, who went to Amite Co, MISS. I know this is a long shot, but do any of you RATLIFF descendants in Amite Co have anything at all on the CANANT family? Thanking you in advance. Judy Canant AsLanJ@aol.com

James Cobb 1850 Amite Co, MS. This man and wife Martha A. were in the census for 1850 with children Samuel J. and William G. Does anyone know anything about these folks.

I have found two separate versions in print of who the parents of Isaac and Thomas Jackson were. Do any of you thousands of cousins have definite information on this? The Sumter Historical Society, SC, has a different version from the John Jackson cited in our cousin Minnie Lee Crum's DAR research.
BASS / MCCOY / ROLLINSON / STERLING /
My great-grandmother, Eliza Jane Sterling, was first married to John Rollinson, who died in the Civil War (We have long generations.). She married Samuel Carlos Sterling in the 1860s. Her maiden name was supposed to have been Taylor, according to my grandfather, Elias Hyde Sterling. I believe her parents were Elias Taylor and Lavinia Bass, who were married in Amite County in 1818, for several reasons. My grandfather and his sister have the same names, Elias and Lavinia, and my grandfather once said that his grandmother told him her daddy was Moses Bass. Lavinia was a daughter of Moses Bass. I've never been able to find a record of Eliza's marriage to John to confirm that her maiden name was Taylor. Does anyone have a record of the marriage of Elizabeth Jane Taylor and John Rollinson (Rawlinson)?

Kneeland/Neyland / McCraine / Rawlins / Shropshire / White
Brothers John & Joshua Kneeland born ca 1770 to father John Kneeland, probably in NC. Migrated to GA, then Amite Co., MS where both sons married, John to Martha Williams. By 25 Oct 1817, John has died & 3 or 4 of his sons go to live with John's brother Joshua. There were 5 sons; Gilbert born 1795, Middleton born1796, Williams born 29 Aug 1803, Robert born 1797 & John born 23 Apr 1812. It appears Gilbert married 8 July 1819 & so wouldn't have lived with Joshua; Middleton also married about that time to wife #1 Sallie McCoy perhaps 27 Feb 1817, which leaves Williams, Robert & John to live with their uncle. Now, some researchers say that this child John is actually Joshua's son on the 1820 census. John marries Elizabeth Owens then he dies 1867. Does anyone have any proof as to whose child John actually is?
