Hello Cousin Jen,
It is great to meet a new relative. You are the first descendent of my Uncle Washington that I have corres. with. I have corres. with descendents of Jerusha, Hamilton and Alexander. It will not be long before I corres. with desc. of Mary Ann. I have not been able to find out much about Preston.
Jerusha, Mary Ann, Hamilton and Alexander all moved to Ashley County, AR. So a lot of the desc. are concentrated there. My Mom came from Ashley County.
Some of the family names in Ashley County are Chavis, Saucer/Saucier, Jeffers/Jefferies, Watkins, Kidwell and Cason.
Many of these families were in Mississippi together before coming to AR. Before MS some of the families were from SC. It is possible that they traveled to MS together.
I will send you some of the family charts in .pdf format to your e-mail address.
Good to hear from you. Will
