Re: Earliest ancestor question
In Response To: Earliest ancestor question ()

I've received info-news that my gr-gr-gr-grandmother Amy Ammons has been found among documented affidavits. I want to share the URL with fellow posters. This message particularly goes out to beloved Preston, the seeker. A quote from my sender:

"...It is a trial of Poe and Ammons, Administrator vs Henry Ammons. It occurs in
the Mississippi High Court of Errors and Appeals. Jacob Ammons died
12/20/1831 in Georgia. It is difficult to determine the date of the affidavit. It
mentions Amy a Negro about 30 years of age, Charles 10 years of age and Ben 7
years of age who belong to Jacob Ammons. Henry Loggins who I have identified as
the last slave owner of the Loggins also gave testimony during this trial."
(hcea00006372) and (hcea00006266)

I offer this information for others looking for (your) ancestors in MS. We have yet to determine information recorded on (Amy's granddaughter) Margaret Loggins Taylor's (MCR#5353)1902 Dawes Testimony taken in Meridian, MS, and the exodus from GA. Many Loggins descendants ended up (with) in the Creek nation (and cemeteries).
