John TYSON moved from Beaufort SC, I think, to the Woodville Ms area in between 1803 and 1825. One of his daughters Mary Catherine Charity TYSON married William Allen Lane of New Glouster Maine and then Clinton or Ethel Louisiana in 1825. She died in 1834 and WAL married her sister Ann Naomi TYSON. Another sister, Louisa TYSON married Clinton attorney, Thomas L. Andrews and they moved to Illinois in 1844.
Anyone have info on when John TYSON came to Woodville and anything else? Thanks,

Surname FLOYD
Looking for information on the Floyd family.  Louis B. FLOYD (b abt 1870)and Lena FLOYD (b abt 1877) were married 20 Sep 1902 in Wilkinson Co.  I found them in Amite Co. on the 1910 census.

Any help much appreciated.  Thank you.

My direct ancestor, William HEWITT (born @ 1750 in VA) married Tamsy/Tracey WILKINSON from MS.  After the Revolution, William retired to Amite, MS, in or near Wilkinson County, near his wife's family, and we presume he was buried in that area.   I am trying to find whether he fought in the
Revolutionary War, and definitely connect him with his sons James & John, who moved onto KY and MO.  He may have received a land warrant/grant for his Rev. War service.  Thank you for any help you can give!
