I am looking for any information on a WILLIAM SCOTT and his wife Clara and their children, William Scott who married Margaret Duffin; Gabriel Scott who married Abigail Griffing; Thomas Scott; Mary Elizabeth Scott who married James Bolls (Boles) (Bowles) I am from Gabriel Scott side but would like to find other family members. I want to find out about William and Clara and their parents and family's. I know that William Sr. was killed in 1793 by Cherokee Indian's I think in Ala, but not sure (no proof). I don't know what happened to Clara and/or what her maiden name was or where they were born. I know that she was in Adams Co., Miss, and the children were also listed in Jefferson, Claiborne, and Franklin Co., Miss.

I have a very elusive male ancestor.  The only thing tangible that I have is a marriage record from Livingston parish dated 9/18/1900 for Edgar CORNEGA m. Gussie Kinchen.  Family lore is that "he" rode in on his horse from Mississippi, met Gussie who was working at the Oaks Hotel, had two daughters, and other than wild rumors, his story ends!  I find several families, Kornega, on the Franklin County. 1880 census and a couple of marriage records from that same time period but I don't see them in Franklin County. before or after 1880.  Some old family members remember hearing him referred to as Tom while others remember him having been called Bud.  Do you have any suggestions as to who/what/where I might find information, other than census records on the Kornega family from Franklin County?  Thanks in advance.

Looking for a copy of the Will of William Causey, Jr. Date of the will is October 11, 1867. I have information that it was probated in Franklin Co.

Transcript of the last document found, as of this time, pertaining to the Estate of William Causey, Jr., the heirs named in his last Will & Testament in October of  1867. This page of the Franklin Co.MS. Court records is stamped 451 and headed by the notation "February Term 1868" Would a copy of the Will be included in these records?

I am researching Franklin County surnames: Armstrong, Calvit, Mundy, Spires, Ford, Hickingbottom.

I copied the 1812 Tax roll for Franklin County awhile back when visiting the

MS archives in Jackson. It's just an index but I thought I'd pass it along anyway.

Looking for anyone who has information on the Williams, Herring, or other families who lived in the Hamburg area in the early to mid 1800's? I am descended from the Electious and John Clem Williams lines and the Guice line. I still own a small piece of land that originally came into the Williams family in about 1809. I hunt on the land each year, so that area is pretty special to me. I am particularly interested in discovering what the land looked like back then. Most of the area is wooded now, but I wonder whether most of it was cleared for farmland or was most of it left in woods back then? There is evidence of much erosion in the wooded areas now, and I wonder if much of it wasn't cleared back then for farmland, resulting in the erosion. Can anyone shed some light on this?
