COURTNEY / GERMANY / JOHNS / McCRAINE / VARNELL
I am looking for Nancy Germany born ca. 1803/4 in GA and married John McCraine/McRaine/McCraney in Wilkinson County, MS in Jan. 1828. John and Nancy can be found on census living next to Murdock McCraine the father of John. (I have copy of certified marriage bond and of Murdock McCraine's will proving the grandchildren.) Perhaps Nancy was married previously with no children or changed her name to Germany (Orphaned Nancy Varnell born abt. 1810 was raised in Germany household). I would like any suggestions, I have been stuck on Nancy for years and can not prove her parents....she is listed on the census, .marriage bond (which was also signed by William Varnell), land sales, her children in Murdock McCraine/McCraney will and tax lists. Thanks for any help. Jeannette. Des Moines, IA

HANNA / KNOX
Henry Hanna Knox who married Louisia L. Kent in East Feliciana Parish Louisiana on 11/28/1844 is my great great grandfather. He may be the son of John Knox, who received a land grant in Amite County in 5/23/1810 and related to Henry Hanna who received a land grant in 3/9/1810 and served in the Mississippi constitutional convention in 1817. John Knox served in the War of 1812 and there are records that his will was probated in 1823. Because I live in Frankfort Kentucky it is difficult to visit the Amite County court house or library to check unique records that might confirm Henry Hanna Knox's relationship to either John Knox or Henry Hanna, I would appreciate any information anyone can share with me about this early period in Amite county's history and the families of these two individuals. Both John Knox and Henry Hanna received land grants in Amite County in 1810. Both are listed in the 1816 Census. In the 1820 census Amite County had 4 Knox households, including that of John Knox. Henry Hanna apparently died around 7/26/1820 and John Knox died in 1823. Amite County 1699-1890 has a number of references to both families, but neither family appears in the 1850 census of Amite County. I suspect a link to Henry Hanna Knox, who married Louisia L. Kent on 11/28/1844 in East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana and who appears in the 1950 census of East Feliciana Parish age 30 with a daughter (my great grand mother) Love Anderson E. Knox, age 3. Any information on the names of the wives, parents. or children of John Knox or Henry Hanna would be appreciated. If anyone has a reference to Henry Hanna Knox being a child in any other Knox household that information would also be appreciated. According to census records and family memories H.H. Knox was born in 1819 in Mississippi and his parents were John and Agness Knox, who were born in South Carolina.

TALBERT / TAYLOR
TAYLOR: I would like to corrspond with anyone knowing the history of Nimrod Taylor (ca l850-l839) All my notes say his son Thomas (l776) married Hannah Talbert and that Thomas died in l835 in Amite. According to papers filed by Nimrod's son-Wm--in about l839, the papers listed his son Thomas as being in Nacogdoches Dist Texas. So he couldn't have died in Amite in l835 and still be listed in the estate papers as the Thomas who was in Texas. My Thomas B Taylor was in Nacogdoches in l840 and did not die until ca l858 and he m Olivia Brewer in l8l6 St Tammany Parish La. Any help you can give me will be appreciated. Ps I had a Cain line.
