The Boler Inn was the home of my great great grandfather. John Boler my great grandfather was a boy at the time. He later married Victoria Germany. They are buried in Indian Gap Texas. I visited Union Mississippi a few years ago & it's a beautiful town. I saw the Boler Inn, what a beautiful old home. A special thank you to those who participated in the restoration.

Last week, Wednesday, June 29, I drove into Newton County from Texas and without
an appointment, called to see if I could get some information. I was greeted on the phone by
Ann. She said she would go grab a bit of lunch and meet me at 1:30. My grand-daughter was
with me, researching my great-grandmother, Rebecca Holland Kendrick Scott. She was the daughter
of John R. and Cornelia Easley Todd. Ann provided the land records and maps --- and then rode with
us as we traced though 150 years of history to find Rebecca's home land, her Uncle George's Mt. Zion
Congregational Methodist Church, and our cousin's Loper graves in the Bufkin Cemetery. My grand-
daughter, Savanah was throughly engaged in searching and finding these clues and Ann was so
helpful with Southern hospitality. We love it and her and want to thank you for all the history
and work that you do and a special thanks to Ann!

I am a Juzan descendant member of the Trudeau Family Society of Canada, via Maj. Francois Trudeau who 1702
built old up-river Mobile's first fort and wed a Burel, "Pelican Girl". Her (and her "Pelican Girl" two sisters)
mother, Marguerite Roussel Burel, was a Canadian "King's Daughter" by her earlier marriage to Canadian soldier
Mathurin Duchiron dit Deslauriers in 1673.

Via her, as too you can be; I am a member of the Canadian society Filles du Roi. Contact:

I am the great, great grandson of Joseph Eagle & Lena Wise, as well as (Philip?) Levine & (Bessie?) Berman.

My grandfather, Irving Eagle Levine, does not remember many details about his childhood in Newton, and I am
terribly curious.

How much information is available regarding the [apparently prominent] Eagle, Wise, and Levine families
(beyond the posted Eagle's Store paragraph), and how might I access it?

Thank you so, so much! My family has thus far been in the dark about this part of our ancestry.

Hello! I'm just beginning to do research on my father's family. I feel like I've "hit the jackpot" in finding your information!
I'd like to thank you, first of all, for your kind comments about my father,
Dr. Sidney D. Leverett, Jr. (A small change: there is no final "e" in the spelling of the name).

I have found an old file containing pictures and information--also a copy of a page from the Todd Family bible.
Do you have any "brick walls"? Perhaps we can help one another!

With great appreciation, Laurie

We believe that Georgia Tann may have taken a child in our family. My in laws had four boys,
her fifth pregnancy was twin girls. Until they went to take the girls home, then there was one.
No matter how much they insisted there were twins, they were told by the hospital
it was a single child. Born October 2, 1946.

My mother in law is still living and the other daughter. Have many of the
children been found? Are there any records?

I am a descendent through James Rogers Kendrick and Cornelia Easley Todd and their daughter Rebecca Holland
Kendrick Scott. After the Civil War, James Rogers and Rebecca Kendrick left Newton County Mississippi for
Hill County Texas. It is known that 16 families traveled with them by covered wagon. I am searching for the 16
families that were along on this trip. I have found that the Todds, Holland's, Coats, Williams, Longs, Kendricks and
possibly Loper's were on this travel. Does anyone have an article or any documentation (newspaper clipping) or
family story that would list the families and possibly encounters along the way via letters?
Thank you, Ann (
