Re: FPOC in south MS
In Response To: Re: FPOC in south MS ()

I am presently working on a list of F.P.O.C. in MS 1810-20. The largest number of names I have found thus far, are found in Jackson County MS in 1820. I have a partial list from census records and will be working on tax records. I have done a lot work at the MS Dept. of Archives and History. I have ask a number of different workers if there is a list of F.P.O.C. for the early days of MS and no one knows of one. Yet I found, in an old school textbook of "MS History", a definate figure (in excess of 400)of the number of F.P.O.C. that were residents of MS in the very early days of statehood.
I will look for your surnames and sent any information I find to this forum. I am working on Enoch Perrett (various spellings) a F.P.O.C., who I first find as an adult on the 1824 Simpson County MS tax rolls.
