Alice F. Permenter <>

Thomas J. Lockler married Delilah Davis in Noxubee Co., Jan. 9, 1856.

Are these the parents for Josephine Georgina Lockler who was born in Dec. 1856? In 1877 Jo Lockler married my great-grandfather James Stacy (Bob) Permenter in Noxubee Co.

[We could use a good look-see of the 1860 Noxbuee County census on this one.......ear] <> had this to share after being contacted about a post on the guest book:

Yes, someone is "really from Mashulaville," though most do not comprehend that "Shulie" is the center of the universe, and that they are living in the center,or have been fortunate enough to have once lived there even if only for a brief time. This is a common phenomenon throughout the country now, no sense of place anymore, no clear identity as to what the land means, the rivers, creeks, birds, animals, trees, and even the memory of people who once lived and loved and died there.

Mashulaville was once filled with Spirits, people from recent times, as well as some from ages past, Choctaws and those who were there before them. But, sometime during the 1960's, the Spirits departed, and the sense of place began to fade, recede into meaningless mediocrity and sameness. Love and compassion between people also disappeared as did bluebirds, wildflowers, and the early morning sound of Choctaw drums which I often heard as a Child. Funny, isn't it, how the little things are often the most remembered and perhaps the most important?

Noxubee High, home of the Tigers, the rusting silver water tower, the Vo-ag shop, Pep rallys, but no Art classes. Art was not important to the powers that were back then I suppose. Imagine a life with no Art, or a school. Well, we made billfolds in Coach Bob Smith's leathermaking class. Prison Art. No liscense plates though. My favorite teacher in high school then was Mrs. Barrett. Literature and English. A kind of written Art I suppose. She, Mrs. Barrett, had a strong Spirit within- a sense of Soul. Kindness and humility and respect for another's dignity, even a teenager's. I go back there 3 or 4 times a year. Stay a month sometimes. Go on long walks along the Noxubee River or Hashuqua Creek. Fish for Spirits. Any kind will do. Some sign that all is not lost forever. A tiny spark. A remnant from childhood days. The Bluebirds are back, so there may be a chance for other things long since frozen in time and memory.


Jeff & Val Tice <> wrote about family members from Noxubee:


I'm looking for Peter Hudson. I'm not sure if the one on page 31 Township 13 is the same one. My gggrandfather James Andrew Murdock married Julia Ann B. Hudson in Bibb County Alabama on March 29, 1953. I then lose him until 1880 in Texas. The only Hudson I've found in Alabama with a daughter named Julia is a Peter Hudson in the 1850 census. But Murdock joined the confederate army from Noxubee County, so I'm hoping that maybe this Peter Hudson is the one who is Julia Ann B. Hudson's father. Until I can start ordering the Noxubee records, I'm not sure exactly whether all these people are there. Can you tell me when Noxubee County was formed?

[The answer to that question is "1833". The area had been considered to Lowndes County just prior, if you have reason to believe your family may have been there that early, be sure to check records in Lowndes County.]


Linda Jenkins <> was looking for a cemetery location:

Looking for the location of Fern Springs and Mashulaville. I was told there was a family cemetery near that area known as Lovorn Cemetery. It is in pasture land and all grown up.

[Well, folks, before we could ask if anyone knew where this cemetery is located, we got an answer!]

Mike and Mary K Johnson <> provided a helping answer to the above:

Fern Springs community is in southeastern Winston County near Noxubee County (approx Secs 34/35 of Twp 14N and Secs 2/3 of Twp 13N of Rng 14E). Mashulaville is on the border between Winston and Noxubee Counties, off of MS Hwy 14 (perhaps Twp 14N of Rng 15E?). The Lovorn Cemetery is in the Nanih Waiya area of southeastern Winston County, off of MS Hwy 397 (approx S21 T13N R14E). According to Hazel Garrett Crenshaw and Louis Taunton's book "Winston County, Mississippi Cemeteries", Lovorn Cemetery is very small and contains the surnames Lovorn, Foster, Slawson, and Sanders. You can contact the publishers at
G&T Publishers, P.O. Box 700, Louisville, MS 39339.

[Many thanks for this piece of information! See how well these mail lists work?...ear]

Don & Janie Goddard <> had more to say in regards to Fern Springs:

An old map in Louisville Court House shows Fearn Springs store where an intersection came into the main hwy. We believe that to be what is now marked as Sardis Road where the Fearn Springs Store was located. We were trying to locate the Holmes property where a small Holmes Family Cemetery was. There was supposed to be only one headstone left. That of Jamaima Stampley (Reed) Holmes. We found the area so overgrown we were unable to locate the headstone though we felt we were quit close. The Fleetwood home is located at this intersection. The actual Fearn Springs was by a small Church's cemetery. It was a hundred yards into the deep woods from the edge of the cemetery. The undergrowth was to heavy to venture into those woods. If anyone has knowledge of the exact location of the Holmes cemetery we would be eternally grateful.


Sharon Hunter <> needs some help with the family of Welsh:

Isreal Welsh. b. 1/20/1822 d, 5/18/1869. He was on the Confederate Congress and a MS Legislature in 1858.

[In the Hudson Family cemetery, just south of Shuqualak, a family of Welsh will be found. I don't know if this your family or not, but they are there....ear]

froggie <> asked for some help:

I have found my mothers grandfather listed on the 1920 Washington Co. Ala census. It list his birthplace as Mississippi as well as his parents. But I need to make a connection to be sure.
John DEARMAN b.1871 Miss., wife Edna b.1880 Ala. There are several children listed: Annie,Mary,Henry,May,Agness Estell, Vardy,

The next two households have George DEARMAN and James DEARMAN They do the same work etc. Have to be related. John Henry was the son of John Dearman. He married a lady by the name of Ola Mae BARRY/BERRY or Johnson.

Murphey Dare
<> had some things to add to a posting that came up on the mail list:

" wrote: searching for information on John T. Richardson who married
Cornelia W. Brown of Columbus, MS 18 May 1869, married in Noxubee County. They might have had 2 children: Willie M. Richardson b. 1870 buried in Columbus, MS and Charles B. b. 1877 buried in Columbus, MS. They probably also had other children. Her father was Charles W. Brown of Columbus."

Murphey responded: Robert RICHARDSON lived near the Noxubee and Lowndes County line.

Charity A. Moore married William W. Goodwin of Macon after the death of William L. Moore. Charity and both of her husbands are buried in Friendship Cemetery in Columbus.


Emiley <> shares an obit from "long ago."

Rebecca Beavers Pratt Glass, wife of Ebenezer Robertson Glass. She was b.July 12, 1824 Bibb Co., Ala., Marr Sept. 22, 1842 Bibb Co., Ala., D. Feb. 19, 1869 Shuqualak, Noxubee Co., MS. She was the dau. of Absalom Pratt and Mary P. Dickerson.

Obituary of Rebecca Beavers Glass:

"For the benefit of our little brothers who have been deprived of a mother's love and tender care are they scarcely know how to appreciate it, we are induced to write for their perusal, when older, the obituary of our loved mother, Rebecca B. Glass, wife of E. R. Glass, who after a short but severe illness died in Noxubee county, February 19, 1869, in her 44th year of age.

The deceased was the oldest daughter of Col. A. and Mary Pratt, of Bibb county Alabama. She lost her father, to whom she was devotedly attached, soon after her marriage, lived near her mother, brothers, and sisters and the friends of her childhood, to live among strangers for the sake of those that were dearer. There was no sacrifice she did not willingly and cheerfully
make for those she loved. Words are inadequate to describe her as a wife and mother. She was an affectionate and dutiful wife, an indulgent and tender mother, and partook of the yous and sorrows of her husband and children with her cuning and gentle meekness. It may be said of her with malloyed truth, that if she had anything she praised highly iit was worthless to her until
she shared it with her loved ones. The greatest of all earthly desires was to see her children noble and good. She always admonished them to spurfi a little act. She was ever ready to sympthize with the suffering to alleviate anguish, to sofeten the sorrows of those around her. She loved her friends and their society, and there were many in this world that were dear to her and to whom she was dear indeed. To know her was but to lvoer her. It was said by an intimate friend visiting us not long since that ours was the happiest little group she ever saw. Our mother was there then, but now she is ot(sic) , she is to Heaven.

She was a member of the Baptist church and a zealous and ade_nt(sic) Christian. She said to us on entering her sick chamber, the morning of her first illness "children, I don't think I will ever be well again, my dear children you will soon be without a mother and I want you all to pray that I
may see my way clear." She was very patient during her short sickness and when the angel of death was hovering close around her she said to one of her children "you think I am dying" and "I have no pulse and asked if we did not think so, and when told that she was very sick and that we feared she would die she did ------- but not for her little son who had violated the Sabbath prior and said to him, "remember my son there are six working days in a week and the Sabbath you should keep holy." When asked if we could do anything far her, she said, "take care of my little children", and gave to each a last and parting kiss, tellin us to meet her in Heaven. She sent the same comforting request to an absent son, who, hearing her illness, waste not a moment in hastening to her side after two days and nights hard travel, not stopping for rest or food, he came too late to received her last blessing, and only to see how desloate home is without our mother. A few moments before she breathed her last she requested us to sing the --antilias hymn which begins with the words "Jesus my all to Heaven is gone," and other songs. She said she saw Jesus.

Even after speech left her, she made sings satisfying us that she was conscious till life was almost extinct. A noble and generous mother is gone to a home above where there is no more sorrow, sickness and pain not death.Our loss is her ------ gain.

"Dearest mother thou has left us, and thy loss we deeply feel; But 'tis God that hath bereft us He can all our sorrows heal. Ye! again, we hope to meet thee when the day of life fleed-; There is Heaven with joy to greet thee, Where no farewell tear is shed."

Vicki Permenter <> has a REAL missing man!

JAMES ROBERT PERMENTER born abt.1853, married Nancy Magnolia Smith in 1871
Tuscaloosa Ala. and he left her shortly afterwards. The family always assumed
he died "somewhere"????? I have my doubts. He had a step father named
J.K.Wilson but I do not know where he originally lived.


Kathy Barefoot <> is excited, hopefully we can help her more?

My mother's maternal grandmother, PERMELIA ALICE FRANKLIN is found in the 1860 census of Noxubee County.

1860 Noxubee Co., MS census, Dist.3, Macon P.O.", Reel # M653-588, page 11, lines 31-35. The family is listed as Alfred, 34/m farmer SC; Mary, 22/m (I think not!) SC; Rebecca 6/f MS; Ella 3/f MS; Alice 1/f MS. We believe this is the correct family although we understood Alice's father's given name was Rubin/Reuben. The age differences are right between Ella and Alice.

We had no real expectations of finding her anywhere! If anyone has information on the Franklin family who resided here during this time we would LOVE to talk more. Also, we know that the SCHRIMPSHIRE family is related to the Franklin family. We have just started researching this site so we are hoping to find more information as we go.

[The following Franklin families are to be found in the 1850 census...ear]

Isaiah Franklin, age 53, m, Planer, b S.C
Martha Franklin, age 40, f., b. SC

John Beasley <> hopes to locate his grandmother's family:

I am trying to find my grandmother's family. All of them left Ms. expecpt Georgia Murry Gore.
The last information I had was that she had one son left and his names is Hulon Gore and that he lived in a retirement lodge named "Poor Boy Lodge" around Dekalb, Ms. He still has an address in Philapeplhia. The reason I am checking in this county is because I think my grandmother was born there in 1887. Her parents were George Louis Murry and Martha Louis "Bethanany" Murry . My grandmother's name: Elizabeth "Lizzie" Murray Beasley.

Jeff Ingram <> needs some help with the Civil War:

Was wondering if anyone knows what civil war units most of the county men went to? I am looking for John Barrong(variations-Barang/Berrong/etc.). He is in 1860 Noxubee census. I
can't seem to find anything on his service.


Marleen Van Horne <> offerred some help for those researching Watkins and Germany families of Kemper county, just to the south of Noxubee.....including it here with knowledge of so many close ties between the counties:

Two obituary notices from Neshoba County for families originating in Kemper County.

Funeral services for Dr. Homer B. Watkins, 63, were held at 4:30 o'clock Monday afternoon at the Noxapater Methodist church. Dr. Watkins for 25 years a resident of Noxapater, died suddenly of a heart attack.

The services were conducted by the Rev. E. B. Sharpe, pastor of the Noxapater church and the Rev. H. Wallace of Drew. Interment was in Mt. Carmel Cemetery at Noxapater.

One of the civic and religious leaders in this section of the state, Dr. Watkins was a graduate of a medical college at Louisville, Ky. He was a Steward in the Methodist Church and a Mason.

Survivors include his wife, Mrs. Sybil Watkins; and two sons, W. Everett Watkins, Noxapater; and Dr. H. Stribling Watkins, Coal Valley, Ala.; three sisters, Mrs. Les Haskins, Philadelphia; Mrs. Sudie Shiner and Mrs. J. L. Donald, both of San Antionio, Texas; and one brother,

These obituary notices are from a scrap book made by a descendant of John W. White's son, Elias Oden White. It is my assumption that Dr. Homer Watkins is a descendat of Leven Watkins and Henrietta White, but I have not documented the connection.
