Names, Places, and Most Wanted Faces

On February 20th, an article posted by Craig Manson on GeneaBlogie describes a way for geneabloggers to enlist the help of readers in locating difficult to find ancestors. The idea is to publicize surnames and locales in the hope that others will have some information about these same people. Craig's suggestion sounds like a good one, so here is my list:

Surnames and Locales:

ATWOOD: Mississippi (Attala, Carroll, Madison Counties)
BALDRIDGE: Mississippi (Carroll, Madison, and Leflore Counties)
BRANCH: Mississippi (Attala, Holmes, and Madison Counties)
COGGINS: Mississippi (Holmes and Madison Counties)

GARRARD: Louisiana (Parish Unk) Mississippi (Holmes County)
GIBSON: Mississippi (Calhoun, Carroll, Monroe Counties)

JEFFRIES: Mississippi (Adams, Washington, Madison, Attala Counties)
MARBLE: Mississippi (Carroll, Madison, and Montgomery Counties)
MERIWETHER: Mississippi (Calhoun and Carroll Counties)

NETHERLAND: Mississippi (Amite and Holmes County)
PETTUS: Mississippi (Attala, Holmes, Lafayette Counties)

PINKSTON: Mississippi (Attala and Madison Counties)
PORTER: Mississippi (Attala, Chickasaw and Holmes Counties)

RAGLAND: Mississippi (Attala, Leake, Madison, Montgomery Counties)
THOMAS: Mississippi (Attala, Holmes Counties)
TRIGLETH: Mississippi (Holmes County)
WILLIAMS: Alabama (Dallas County) Mississippi (Monroe County)

MOST WANTED ANCESTORS: Parents of John P. Gibson, b. 1799 in South Carolina; Parents of Margaret J. Williams, b. circa 1820 in Alabama; Parents of Wilds Meriwether, b. circa 1870 (state unk,) died circa 1930, possibly KY)

  1. I'm not related to any of these people (I don't think) but wanted to comment so you'd know I was here. I sure love the magnolia picture at the top!
