HUGHEY / MARSH / WESTBROOK\
My grandmother is the daughter of David C. HUGHEY and Marietta WESTBROOK. She was born in Liberty, Mississippi on December 23, 1904. According to the information I have found, her mother was Sarah Holton Greenwell and her father was SEABORN JONES WESTBROOK. Marietta was born in Mount Olive/Amite County. SEABORN'S father was EDMUND SMITH WESTBROOK and his mother was Francis Emily MARSH. From there I have lost all connections. Can someone please help? There are several Westbrook's living near me and we can all trace back family members to the East Fork Cemetery -- however, we cannot find the missing link. My main questions: 1. Seaborn was born in Louisiana but buried at Mars Hill Cemetary in Smithdale, MS. However, he must have moved back since my great grandmother (Marietta) was born in Mount Olive. Can anyone find any connections? 2. Edmund Smith Westbrook married a Francis Emily Marsh -- that is my family name. I have lots of information on the Marsh side but cannot find a connection to this woman and am wondering if one does exist. On the Marsh side, there are the following names: James H. Marsh, Captain Marsh, Anissa Hyde, Cyrus Hyde, Rufus Hyde, and ______ Hazen? Does this ring a bell with anyone? Thanks for all help!

COON / HILL
Am trying to find the family of Earl Hill. His daughter was supposed to be postmistress at Centerville. Earl is the nephew of my GGF, James Franklin Hill. I know that Earl took care of his grandmother. I am trying to find the parents and siblings of James Franklin Hill (1873, Adams, MS - 1933, Hinds, MS). He married Mary Melissa Coon (1876, Wilkinson, MS - 1949, Hinds, MS). I know that Centerville straddles the county line, so am posting in both counties. I apologize for the multiple mail to those who subscribe to both lists. Thanks.

FOSTER / VALENTINE
Does anyone have any information on the Valentine family in Amite County? According to the wedding bonds posted for his daughter, Rebecca, in 1811, Thomas VALENTINE was a resident of Amite County. He formerly lived in South Carolina. I know that later he and his family were in Louisiana. But what about his sojourn in Amite County? Where did he live? Would like any information. (Besides his daughter, he had several children, including a son James.) Also: Would like to find parents of NORRIS FOSTER who married Rebecca Valentine in Amite County in 1811. According to marriage bond, he was a resident of the coutny. According to later census info, he claimed Kentucky as his birth place. According to family "hand me down" but unverified, his father's name was James. Is this the James Foster who had an old Spanish land grant in "West Florida" a few years earlier? Thanks for any information on Foster's early history.

HUNT
I am trying to determine if the David Hunt listed in the 1820, 1830 and 1840 Amite County Census is the father of Samuel Hunt who was born in Mississippi around 1812. Samuel, one of the oldest of a large family, all born in Mississippi, relocated to East Feliciana Parish by 1838. It appears Samuel Hunt's mother, is named Lelia and she relocated to East Baton Rouge Parish by 1850, without the father who had probably died. If you have any insight into this I would appreciate your help. Michael Hunt
