Gwen recieved the information below from a distant cousin,..Troy Crews

"My connecton is that Josephine Screws' father-Obediah is the brother of my great grandfather, Joseph. Last year I traveled to Jackson, MS and at the MS Department of Archives and History I found a book entitled the "Lost Marriage Records of Pontotoc Co. MS." In this book, it showed that Josephine Screws and John Odell were married on 20 Dec. 1877. Obediah Screws is shown in the 1870 census for Tallahatche Co. MS. The census shows Josephine age 8 years. The 1860 census for Lafayette Co MS shows Obediah age 20 years. I think that Obediah was a private in the 7th MS Cav. Co. H during the Civil War. Obediah's father was Enoch Screws. Enoch Screws and the family left Panthersville (Dekalb Co.) GA and came to MS around 1854 to Pontotoc County. The 1860 census shows Enoch and family in Lafayette Co. MS. Enoch Screws is listed in the 1850 & 1840 Census for Dekalb Co. GA and 1840 Census for newton Co. GA. Enoch's father was James Screws and he is shown in the 1830 Census for Newton Co. GA and the 1820 Census for Columbia Co GA. James married Nancy Palmer in 1801. I think James was born in Duplin Co. NC around 1770."
