Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Mississippi Delta. I have been tracing my family history for many years. Some of the families I am researaching (all with southern roots) are: Bennett, James, Skelton, Newton, Howard, Hays, Garner, Little, Westbrook, Warrick, Long, Arbuckle, Blaylock, and Sullivan. If you have relatives in Carroll County and/or Montgomery County, Mississippi in the 1800s, chances are good that our lines cross.

RE: Solomon Bennett 1786-1852
Portia - I've been off on another branch in our family for the past several weeks so hadn't even noticed you had a public now. I'll hop back on that line & let you know.
Thanks & hope you're doing well!

Solomon Bennett 1786-1852
I have evidence to indicate Solomon was son of William Bennett 1750 SC - 1820 Lincoln Co TN and Lydia Unk 1758 SC - 30 Apr 1822 Lincoln Co TN.
Was brother to my Elisha Bennett 1799 GA - 1857 Giles Co TN paternal 4th ggrandfather.
Whereas Elisha was too young to server in the War of 1812 all other older brother did & were compensated with land in new territory in MS.

Portia, thank you so much for posting Mary Hulda Hawkins on Find A Grave (# 33311894).She is my great great grandmother. I have been searching for her for a long time.
I was not raised in Mississippi and knew very little of my family from there.
Thank you! Thank you! Charlotte

John Lancaster
Hi. I added his headstone today. While I was out there I also took a pic of Elizabeth Lancaster. I wish I could have gotten the dates but it is over half way buried in the ground.

Lucille Pentecost #67230666
I strongly believe she was the daughter of the senior Albert Louis Pentecost #35795662 &
Nettie Lee Travis Pentecost #35795586 as she indicated on the 1910 census that she had had two children with only one living (Albert Louis Pentecost, jr plus the fact his tombstone matches hers. But I have no proof. I don't know what B & D records exist in Sunflower County, MS for that time period. I know the state hadn't started keeping death records yet. Are they all buried in the same plot?

Here is his wife: 106936817 RE your note I believe he's buried next to her. I took a 2nd look at site & there is a space but no stone. If you have info on him I will add to a list I'm compiling so that I can check against IOOF burial list. It has been tied up w/volunteers from new cem assoc trying to computerize for almost 2 yrs. I can't help as they don't want the books taken out of office & I could only do working from my home - anyway, will put him & any detail you might have on a 'look see' basis - but I believe we're safe to assume he is in IOOF Gwood.
