Re: [LA] Researching Family Satcher
In Response To: [LA] Researching Family ()
I rec'd your query thru Yahoo's Afrigeneas group.
I am researching the Satcher family out of Ocean Springs, Mississippi with a short stay in Orleans Parish for Amanda Smith Satcher and Georgia Satcher in 1930. Below is information copied from the Ocean Springs Archives; http://www.oceanspringsarchives.com/blackhistory.html
"In the 1860 census, there are five individuals with the Satcher surname living in the state of Mississippi; Catherine in WhyNot, Lauderdale County, H. M. in Rawsonville also in Lauderdale County, Huge in Beaver Dam, Clarke County, John in Shoeboola, Clarke County and W. S. Satcher listed with an Edwards Deport P O, located in Hinds County."
Note: The family below is my line
“Charles Satcher (1838-1913), a farmer, appears to have been the founding father of this local Black family. His wife, Resia Satcher (1824-1900+), called Kizzie, was the mother of nine children, seven who lived into the 20th Century: Cornelius Satcher (1861-1907), Albert Satcher (1862-1900+), Green Satcher (1864-1900+), Henry Satcher (1866-1900+), Isaac Satcher (1870-1900+), Virginia Satcher (1874-1900+), and Augustus Satcher (b. 1876). In 1900, the Satcher men at Ocean Springs made charcoal for a living while Kizzie made her livelihood washing and ironing clothes."
