Looking for information on my grandfather, Robert Taylor Mitchell, and on his mother Jane Mitchell (don't know her maiden name). He was born Dec 29, 1878 in Peoria (Amite County), Mississippi. He died December 27, 1963 in Hobart (Kiowa County), Oklahoma. He was married Dec 17, 1902 to Liller Viola Roberts in Hempstead County, Arkansas. 1880 Pontotoc County, Mississippi lists Robert at age 1. He and his mother (Jane Mitchell), age 36, were living in the household of Joseph and Martha Terry. Robeert's mother, Jane, was listed as the mother-in-law. Martha Terry was age 20 so apparently Jane was only 16 years old when Martha was born. Robert's mother, Jane, was listed as a widow in the 1880 census. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My great great grandmother was Mary Armadilla Annadella BRABHAM. I have had trouble finding her father. I was told her mother was Thursa Ann BRABHAM, daughter of Joseph BRABHAM. In the 1870 Amite census Mary is listed in the same household as her mother, but her name is Annadella MIXON and Thursa last name is still BRABHAM. This leads me to believe her father must be a MIXON. Mary was born in 1864. Her mother was born in 1846 so I think Mary's father may have been around the same age as Thursa. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Denham Springs, LA

We have gotten back to John McGehee (b: about 1842) married to Milissa McGehee (b: about 1845) don’t know her maiden name (we believe they were from Amite County). It is our understanding they had 21 children, we were able to locate 12 of those names in the 1880 census [Ellen (F), Mary Jane (F), Marthia (F), Joseph (M), Georgiana (F), Johnie (M), Isaphine (F), Perler (F), Thomas (M), Andy (M), Babe (M), Lucy (F)] Andy McGehee was about 2 years old and the last two children, Babe and Lucy we believe are twins of 2 months. We are unable to figure out if the other 9 children were born before or after those 12, we are wondering if some of them were born into slavery and sold prior to 1865? Andy would’ve been born about 1878 and he eventually married Mary McGehee (b:?) (maiden name Martin). They had 10 children: Estella (F), Eula (F), Ishman (M), Joe (M), L.H. (M), Mary (F), May Bell (F), Melissa (F), Pearle (F), and Sam (M). Ishman McGehee married Emma McGehee (maiden name Everett) and they had three children together: George McGehee (deceased), Rosia Lee McGehee (deceased), Ruby Lee McGehee (married name Brown) – our family ancestor (deceased in 2000). Ruby Lee McGehee Brown had 13 children, of which 10 are still living. Those descendants of Ruby Lee McGehee Brown either live in Pike County, MS or have moved out of Mississippi, most to Pennsylvania. If anyone is able to help me find out more about Emma McGehee (Everett), find out more about the 9 children missing from John and Milissa McGehee, and/or figure out if they were slaves and if the family goes back further than John and Milissa or possibly a ship they were brought over on…it would be most appreciated. Look forward to hearing from anyone out there, thank you so very much!
