SMITH, ORLEANS CO., NEW ORLEANS, ca. 1900. Searching for my g-grandfather, EMILE SMITH, who "died while working on the Panama Canal." Although "Smith" is often used as a generic name, in my family, it is the only one we know for the line through which I am descended via my father, Carl E. Smith, Jr. According to family lore, my g-grandfather, Emile, took the name of his stepfather, which was Smith. We have no more info on him than that he worked on the Panama Canal. Before his death, he married my g-grandmother, Arthemise ("Narcuse"), who remarried a man named Joseph Henry, probably between 1914 and 1925. It's taken me 2 months and a lot of searching to get this much data. Since I'm in Chicago, and I have only one relative to use as an informant, I am eager for leads from closer to "home."

CONNELLY-THOMPSON-MCKESSON, BURKE CTY., NC Calvin Connelly (White), perhaps visiting Morganton/Glen Alpine, NC., impregnated Eliza Thompson, who gave birth to Mary Elizabeth Thompson. Cannot locate marriage lic. between the 2 in that area, nor can I locate Connelly on the census. I have reason to believe she was of Cherokee descent (& we are therefore entitled to reparations). Calvin is listed as white on his daughter Mary's marriage lic to George Francis McKesson in 1875. George was the son of James C. & Chaney McKesson. George had bros named: Henry, & James married Mary Suddeth, in Burke, etc.). I am attempting to locate James & Chaney's marriage lic. (I located James marriage lic to Rachel, which means he probably was not married to Chaney. He is presumed white).During the marriage of George & Mary, Mary was a large land owner. George & Mary had: Will, Addie (Owner of Horton's Cafe, 1940's, Burke Co.), Anna, John (Cop, Chicago; Died in 50's), George (Taught school in W. Va., cgh'd surname to France), Cliff, etc. These McKessons' were related to the Scottish-Irish McKessons who originally resided in NY & PA area. Currently, the McKeson descendants primarily reside in Baltimore, MD; Denver, CO; RFD & Charlotte, NC & L.A, CA and are comprised of Lawyers, Professional Television Actors, Scientist, Police Officers, School Teachers, Published Writers, Dentist, etc. Pls email me at angelamckessongoode@yahoo.com

BROWN, COAHOMA & GRENADA CTY MS Hello My name is Shauna and I am trying to locate anyone in Coahoma and Grenada Counties doing family research on The Brown Family. The most information I have is a 1920 census report which located my family in Coahoma County but my great grandmother and her children were born in Grenada MS. My gg grandmothers' name was Lula(Williams)Brown she married? Harry Brown and they had 5 children: Annie(27), Sam(25), Clearance(20), Clara(14), and Clinton(12). On the census report were other children? we have no idea who they are.?? Georgia Brown is listed as a niece(15), Dereallia Brown granddaughter(7/12 mos), and Willie O Taylor grandson(1). (These are there ages at the time of the 1920 census.) We don't know what happened to Harry Brown we believe he may have died in Grenada County or Coahoma County. Lula Brown died in Rockford IL in 1958, Sam Brown died in Chicago or Clarksdale in the 30's or 40's ( We believe Dereallia Brown may have been his child?), Clearance Brown died in Rockford IL in 1969, Clara Brown died in Rockford IL in 1961, and Clinton Brown died in Kansas City MO in the 70's....Annie Brown died in Rockford IL in 89 If any of these names fit into your History some how could you please let me know...
