HARDIN(G)
Judy Roberts    Sep 28 1996
My great grandmother; Frances Missouri HARDIN(G) was supposedly born Feb 13, 1860 in Eupora, MS. Her parents were listed in subsequent census records by her, as being born in AL. However we have never been able to find out her parents names. She is suppose to have a sister Lizzie and a sister Ann. In about 1877 she married Willis Nathaniel Wofford who was from Choctaw Co. Ms. They had my grandmother in Attala Co. MS. in Aug. 1878. I have not been able to find her in census records with any parents in 1860 or 1870. By 1880 she is living with W.N. WOFFORD. Does anyone have a Lizzie or Ann HARDIN(G) born in AL or MS around the 1855-1865 time frame, give or take? I know Francis Missouri HARDIN(G) m. a John Flether CARROLL in MS after Mr. Wofford died. She had 3 or 4 more children, and moved to Texas, where she died in 1930. However she left no death certificate to trace parentage. Any help greatly appreciated.

James MADISON from Memphis m.

His first wife remained in the Yazoo/Belzoni area.  Walter Scott MADISON first married a COBB, who d. in childbirth, then married Ida Mae Hamilton UPCHURCH, a widow thought to be from Yazoo County.  She had two children, Nora and Claude.  Together they had Pauline, Edward Henry, and (?)Brewer.  Ida Mae died in a hospital in Memphis about 1928.  Edward Henry MADISON is my grandfather and he died in 1933 in Clay County.  It is thought Walter and Ida Mae lived north of Belzoni in a community known as Jaytown, Jaketown, or something similiar.  Buried in Belzoni cemetary is an Annie Madison, born 1899 and died 1913, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.S. Madison.  Is this the same Madisons?  Edward married Roxie Mae Young from Clay county in 1917 in this area.  She was visiting her uncle Tom Young who owned a store in this community.  I am having a terrible time trying to find anything about the Madisons who lived somewhere near Belzoni.
