Bob Mays - 01/26/98 My Maddox grandparents in Alcorn Co MS told me my great grandfather John Wilson Maddox was born in Rome, Floyd County circa 1849. His father is believed to have been John also. His mother is said to have been Susie Young Maddox. The story goes that John Maddox went to the cornfield one day during the Civil War and was never heard from again. Susie is said to have married a Mr. Wallace and having lost her oldest son in Floyd County, they removed to Tennessee (believed Hardin Co, TN) and thence to Old Tishomingo Co MS (or depending on the year, Alcorn Co, MS.) I have found Maddoxes in Floyd County, and even talked to some of them, but cannot prove a connection. Therefore, I have been unable to get any further back in that line than the firsthand family story. My great grandfather, John Wilson Maddox took his family, of whom my grandfather, George L. Maddox was oldest, to Texas in 1879, returning several times over the years, leaving some children in Texas, but returning to MS himself about 1910 to stay. He died in Alcorn Co. MS in 1923. Would appreciate any assistance in my Maddox research.

Rick & Myrna DeJournett Huff - 02/09/98 We are looking for descendants of John Cook DeJournette (son of Daniel DeJournette) who came from Surry County, NC to Rome, Georgia. He settled there and has many descendants listed in "The DeJarnette and Allied Families of America" by Earl and May Frost. We are trying to establish just who Daniel's parents were, as the book lists them as Christopher and Ann DeJarnette of Prince Edward County, VA. However, another son listed in the book has been confused with another person by the same name. We have copies of pages from the family Bible of Christopher and Ann DeJarnette which show five children but no Daniel. The birth dates for the Daniel and a brother listed in the Frost book do not match the Bible. As well documented as this family is in the Frost book, we believe we can find descendants of John Cook DeJournette near Rome who may have researched their family tree and know who his grandparents really were.

He was age 40+ when he married. Family lore says his parents separated, and he was the only survived child, with a sister, Laura, dying young. Sidney's mother's name was Elizabeth. His father is said to have remarried. This is a line I am really stuck on and would appreciate any helpful hints. Other clues: his cousin, Ed married Alice Eugenia Hawkins' sister, Minnie. Ed's father was a Mathias COX, born in GA, but lived in MS some and moved back to the Gadsden, AL area also.

Judi Wingo - 12/14/978 My grandfather, Benjamin Tomlinson, was born in Floyd Springs, GA, May 8, 1869. His father was Grove Simpson Tomlinson and his mother was Ellen Nancy Davis. My mother is a Tomlinson and her father (Benjamin Tomlinson) was born near Rome, Georgia, May 8, 1869. According to my grandmother's writings, his father was Grove Simpson Tomlinson of Georgia, and his father was Grove Tomlinson of North Carolina. According to the information from www.Ancestry.com, one Grove Tomlinson is listed, but there is no information listed for birth, death, or marriage. I was just curious if this could be indeed the Grove of my family. I became very curious because recently I made the acquaintance of a woman named Marsha Tomlinson and she had some records which traced her lineage back to a Leonard Tomlinson. She also had some information about the three Tomlinson brothers who first came to America, but it seemed more like hear-say than actual information.I would appreciate any information about my ancestors.
