Comments:My mothers maiden name is TURNER. Family oral history relates that three Turner men came up the Chickasawhay River around 1820 and established a small settlement southwest of Leakesville called Turnertown. I'm attempting to find the location of this early settlement. I've been told all that is left (as the buildings were wood and now are gone) are some concrete blocks used as foundation for some of the buildings. Anyone having knowledge about Turnertown I would appreciate 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

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.

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:
Anne 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.

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.
