I have been looking into Carroll County, for the Cohron family. I know they (Sara & her
sons John & David) migrated to Mississippi, from Georgia , in the mid-1800's
with several slaves. The white Cohrons stayed in Carrol County. We know
that the black Cohrons seem to have moved to Lafayette County (Oxford) by
1870. They had land & could read & write. Several of the Oxford Cohrons
became ministers. The Skipwith Historical Society in Oxford has been very
helpful in that area.
I was in touch with an H.R. Cohron, of Carroll County, for several years
before he died in the 1990's. He was such a delightful man, who hand-wrote
all of his letters to me in calligraphy style.
I haven't gotten back to my research in some time and plan to return. I may
be in touch, soon, as I'd like to know more about Carroll County in the
volunteer County Coordinator for Carroll County, Mississippi. I have
family lines from here and hence my interest in establishing as much
information as possible on early Carroll County History.
