McBroom Arkansas ?
McBroom BIG Brick Wall
I have hit a major wall in finding my ggreatgrandfather
I first found him in the 1880 Phillips County Arkansas Census in the home of Thomas Bell. It states he was a servant and born in Alabama. Then in 1900 he is listed with Mary my ggreatgrandmother and all their children. It states he doesn't know where he was born or what year. Then in 1910 he is listed as being born in Ms. I can't find him in the 1870 census anywhere between Alabama, Mississippi or Arkansas.
I have tried using all variations of the name Lany (Laney, Delaney, Lane, Lance, etc on to just using his year of birth which is 1853). In 1880 his last name was spelled Mc Broom then in 1900 as McBroom. In 1920 the name got listed as McGroom then back to McBroom. Can anyone help? He is the last link before I can put our family tree together for our reunion in July 2007.
Thanks in advance.
