|Comments:||My grandmother was Lona Arviline Holder born 1892 in Janett, her grandmother was Arviline Dunnam. I've traced the Dunnam (Dunham) line back to the Georgetown County area of South Carolina. If anyone wants to contact me for more info just send an email.
|Comments:||I am related to the Kittrells and Brelands through Nancy Kittrell Johnson (1884-1957) daughter of Johnathan Kittrell (1842-1912) and Matilda Catherine Breland (1847-1900). Nancy Kittrell was my grandmother. I'm interested in the Avera community and Mutual Rights Church, is there anything left of Avera ? How did the church get its name ? Are there still Brelands and Kittrells living in the area ?
Thanks so much

My grandmother was Mary Ann Breland. She married James Mitchell Ball. They were from Greene County. My father's family (Freeman) were from Perry County.
|Comments:||I am researching William Womack Blankenship who was a resident of Greene County in 1816 until his death in 1831. He was approved for a Revolutionary War Pension for service of three years in Virginia, was also prisoner of war to the British. His burial is in Mobile. His son William A Blankenship was also a resident of Greene County at that time. I am also researching Henry Snelgrove. I believe his daughter Theana was married to William A Blankenship. Henry Snelgrove and Womack Blankenship appear on two census records as neighbors. I am finding limited records on the internet, so hopefully in a month or so I am planning a trip over there to try to search at the courthouse, unless you know any volunteer lookup people. I can find no evidence of marriage or land records on the internet and not sure if I should search records in Leaksville or the Mississippi State Archives. Any advice would be appreciated.|

|Comments:||I appreciate all the hard work you have put into making this website. Lots of great information. May have a few pictures to contribute. My grandmother was Melissa Jane Dunnam (1912 - 2011). I just recently (since her passing) traced our family (Dunnam) back eleven generations. Very interesting, to say the least! Thanks again.
Children of Melissa Jane Dunnam and Ed Douglas:
Mae Belle Douglas
Edward Douglas Jr.
I know the first names of all their children and some of the grandchildren, but not all of whom they married.
Thanks again and God bless you.

I grew up in Leakesville, graduating in 1969 and still have many family ties there and in Vernal. I am part of a family team researching history on the William D. and Emma Williams Moulds family of Vernal. His last name could possibly have been spelles Moles. Your work provided a lot of insite into the history of the area. I went through most of the pages and found links to some of my relatives. It was really interesting to see how the area came to be. I can imagine it took you quite some time putting this together and I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate and applaud nyour efforts! Thank you for the good work.

|Comments:||Thank you so very much for a wonderful site! I'm researching our family tree, which goes back to Alexander Fairley. You have provided great, accurate information and a very professional website. Many larger communities could profit from your expertise. Any additional information concerning the "Fairley Clan" would be appreciated. It's difficult when the courthouse and records are destroyed, as apparently happened far to often. Again, thank you for all future generations searching for their roots. The Mississippi hospitality shines thru!|

|Comments:||I am looking for information on James B. Davis. He was born on 7/28/1864 and is my great grandfather on my grandmothers side of the family. My great grandmother was a Merritt. James B. Davis is buried in the Merritt Cemetery in Greene County.
I have been successful in finding some information on the Merritt's but nothing on James B. Davis except he might have had a brother that either moved or lived in Texas.
|Comments:||I am looking for information on John W. Moore (Sr) that married Nicey Turner. They had a son John W. Moore as well. The middle name may have been "Warren."
I believe that Nicey Turner's family lived in Green County, Mississippi which leads me to believe that John W. Moore may have lived there as well.

Hope you are doing well and are in good health these days.
I recently (within the last 6-12 months or so) sent in some pictures of the Richard Samuel Henderson family,including picture of the Henderson Ole Place at Indian Hill,, and some other pictures of the individual family members. I believe I also sent some pictures of the William Drury Eubanks ole place in Vernal. I was wondering if these pictures are going to be published on your website? If you need me to resend the pictures, I will be glad to glad to resend them to you.

|Comments:||Love this site. I am always refering back to it for info. Thanks|
|Comments:||Would love to know about where some of these pictures were taken and if they are still standing. Is there any historic places still standing to go look at. Thank you for the info. I really enjoyed the info and pictures.
|Comments:||Good website and good work. However, it is a know fact that the McInnis's were the first settlers of Leakesville and either you did not think it was worth mentioning it (maybe it wasn't worth mentioning), or you did not know what was and is common knowledge but most old timers or who knows!
Anyway, The first family to settle in Leakesville was the McInnis family. J. J. McInnis, familiarly known as "Jack" or "Uncle John" had originally come from Scotland. He lived 7 miles east of Red Hill place where he was the only white man in the vicinity for some time. Numerous Choctaws and other Indians occasionally paid him a visit.
The next settlers of Leakesville were the Greens, Francis James Green, who had the first general store in Leakesville. The first post office was established in Leakesville in 1840, and John McInnis ran it.
