Brookshire from Noxubee CO, MS
1870 census for Noxubee Co, Mississippi has this apparently extended family listed as:
Brookshire, William 39 M B farmer $3920 $950 VA
As well as Taylor Brookshire (22) Lorissa 18 and Alcorn 1/12 a few houses down. Apparently a Francis Brookshire(25) also married a Tony Cowan(26). They are listed next to Taylor and in a lter census she is living with Brookshires as a sister
A later Descendant of Edgar BROOKSHIRE married William "Willie" MASON, a son os Wes/Wesley/Westley MASON. Is anyone working on MASON, BROOKSHIRE or Cowan from Noxubee County, or neighboring Lowndes County?
