HENSON, SIGLER, YARBROUGH posted by Sandra Henson on Friday, December 1, 2000

Looking for information on the family of Robert Mathew HENSON and Elma SIGLER. In the 1880 Census ~ Tallahatchie County, Mathew is listed in the household of Rich and Martha HENSON at age 6. In 1893 Mathew married Elma SIGLER in Tallahatchie County. Family sources show that they lived in the county (possibly Sumner area). However, we have not been able to locate them on the 1900 Census. Our records do show they were in the county in 1910, 1918, 1920, and 1923. Mathew's obit in 1938 stated that he lived in the county all his life. If you have any information from the 1900 CENSUS on Mathew HENSON and/or Elma YARBROUGH with children: Ervin,10; Anniebelle,5; and Mary,1 - please contact us. Thanks!

BROWN, HENSON, HINSON, JONES, LOPER, MCMULLEN, MCPHENN, WARBINGTON posted by Sandra Henson on Friday, December 1, 2000

Looking for information on Martha A. HINSON or HENSON of TALLAHATCHIE COUNTY. Family sources show that Mrs. Martha A. BROWN married Richard HINSON in 1860. We have been unable to locate Richard and Martha on the 1870 census with daughter, Mary. However, on the 1880 Census we located Martha A. listed as the wife of Rich HINSON. Mary J., 15, and Robt. M., 6, were listed as their children. In August of 1900, Martha A. HINSON completed a Civil War Widow's Benefits form and stated that her husband's name was Richard H. HINSON. She further stated that she was living in the W.M. WARBINGTON household and that he was no relation to her. W.M. Warbington and Mrs. Nannie HINSON had married in 1892. Martha was not listed in the William and Nannie WARBINGTON household in June - 1900 census. Martha had also stated on the form that she had three grandchildren as relations. There were 3 step-children listed in the WARBINGTON household. The death certificate of Mrs. Martha HENSON listed date of death as Feb 1915 and that she was widowed. Informant was M. McPHENN of Charleston. We need census information for Richard and Martha HINSON/HENSON in 1870 and for Martha HINSON/HENSON in 1900 and 1910. Also, we would appreciate any information on M.McPHENN to see if there is a connection to Martha. It appears there were several Martha A. HINSON/HENSONs in Tallahatchie County. A marriage record listed Mrs. Martha A. HINSON married W.B. LOPER in March 1901 with bond by H.J. JONES for W.B. LOPER. Ceremony performed by N.J. McMULLEN. Would appreciate any information that would help sort out these Martha A. HINSON/HENSONs. Thanks!

John R. Smith and Owen Smith were in Tallahatchie County in 1850 and1860. They were both in the Civil War. Do they have descendents still living in Tallahatchie County? If so, I would like very much to hear from you. Irene Brown,[email protected]

DENMAN, THOMPSON posted by Linda Thompson Scott on Tuesday, January 2, 2001

My great grandparents were Joseph G. Thompson, born 3/8/1861, died 3/18/02 and Emma L. Denman, born 1/20/1869, died 1/1/1946 The two are buried in New Hope Cemetary. This is my brick wall. I can trace Emma all the way back to the 1300's, but cannot locate any information on Joseph G. Thompson. I have found records of a Joseph G. Thompson owning significant acreage in the area but do not know if he is the same person. I would appreciate any information anyone may have.
