ALLEN David Allen Sun Jun 29 23:07:17 1997 - Seeking information on John Silas ALLEN and his wife Rebecca Cox ALLEN. They are burried in unmarked graves at Salem Church. I would like to have their birth and death dates before marking the graves. I am also seeking information on two of their sons who joined the Confederate Army and were never heard from again. Their names were William and Mathew.
EVANS Ken Powers Thu Jun 12 07:50:30 1997 - EVANS, David Augustus; Jessee U.; William B. These men lived in Lauderdale County, AL when their father, Jessee Evans, died in 1824. It appears that they moved to MS after their father died; possible to Tishomingo or Itawamba Counties, although no hard evidence has been found of this. My great-grandfather, David Augustus Evans, Jr., was born in MS 16 Mar 1838. His father died 23 Dec 1838, presumably in MS, since it was only a few months after the birth of his son. D.A., Sr. was married to Elizabeth "Betsy" Bearden; their oldest surviving child was son William B. Evans. Jessee U. Evans was D.A. Sr.'s brother, possibly older. The probate of their father's estate said the brothers claimed title to all of Jessee's land, "free and clear." I AM TRYING TO LOCATE D.A. SR.'S FAMILY IN MS AT THE TIME OF D.A. JR.'S BIRTH AND AFTERWARDS UNTIL BETSY MOVED THE FAMILY TO TN.
