I just wanted to extend a thank you to Bess Hollingsworth and the Society for making the extract of Final Record Probate Book 1 (1876 - 1899)
Newton Chancery Court, Newton Co, MS available online. With her excellent work, I was able to find the probate packet of Ambrose Fore on FamilySearch. In that packet I was able to find evidence to help prove that Ambrose and AJ Fore are not the same person as well as find the names of Ambrose's minor children. AJ Fore's descendants in Florida thank you.

Researching Sanderville V. Mitchell.
He was born in guess is the year 1821 or it could have been 1841 as I see it listed differently in the census. I find him in the 1870 & 1880 census living in Newton, MS.
I will be glad to take any information you might have like when was he really born? Who was his family? Some of his children I only have first initials for. Would be nice to have their full names. I'm also wondering who his parents might have been or if he had any siblings?
Thank you for your help!

I have tried numerous times to contact people about touring the Boler Inn. The chamber of Commerce in Union could not help in this matter. I am a descendant of Mary Poly Boler. It would make me happy to see the inn as it's a part of my heritage. Hope to hear from anyone soon.

I am looking for someone to help me dive into my father's biological lineage. He was Native American adopted in the late 1940s in KY. He and his adoptive parents are all deceased and the remaining family has reason to believe he was a Georgia Tann baby. Please feel free to contact me with any help. Thank you in advance!

I am attempting to gather information about Stephen C. Williams (born 1808: Died 1886) from Newton county. He was married to Frances A. Wash from Newton county. He is my great-great grandfather. He had a son name Pleasant Terry Williams that married Julia Clarke (daughter of N. L. Clarke-also my great-great grandfather). I would like to know his and Frances burial location and what the initial C in his name stood for.
Thx Mike Meadows
