In the history of the Stamper Family I noticed that Spencer Stamper died in 1848 and buried in Pike County, Ga. I found his grave, it is in Friendship Baptist Church Cemetery in Pike County, Ga. The grave was in the woods in back of the main cemetery. Just thought the Stamper family might be interested.

My 3rd Great Grandfather was Edward R. Dennis (brother of Daniel Asa Dennis) from "History of Newton County" pages 162-172. We have E.R. Dennises (Denis?) history from this account and some other things that were passed down. I am hoping to get all the information I can on my ancestor. Please let me know if you can help me. Thank you.

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!
