The "Archive Holdings" button doesn't work. The error message reads "File does not begin with '%PDF-'. Local\EwHD%oeccj3

I'm truly impressed by your site. I'm researching the McMullans, Joneses, and Johnsons of Newton County.

Thanks so very much!

I absolutely LOVED reading about the McMullan family chest. William Marion McMullan's daughter Jemima's oldest child is my great-grandmother, Valeria (but we all called her Babbie). Babbie's son John is my paternal grandfather. The more research I did the more I began to hope the chest was still in existence, and sure enough, there was a PICTURE of it!!! Thank you so much for bringing this kind of wonderful history to the world so descendants like me can see it. It really does mean so much.

Thanks again for publishing information online!!

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.
