Levin WAILES, 1768-1847, was Surveyor General of the Miss. Territory and a very famous guy; he's no kin of mine, but I wrote an article on him which Gerri Newton put on the web at "http://www.rootsweb.com/~msadams/survey.htm".  He is buried at "The Wailes Cemetary", "in back of the old Wailes Home at Washington", which I believe in the 1800s was called "Mead Villa". Can anybody tell me whether it still  exists, or where it is or was? Put me in touch with its owner? Please reply, if you can. "Bless your heart".

I'm searching for information on a familyBible.  Genealogical pages from this Bible have been reported as being available from the MS Dept. of Archives & History in Jackson.  I have searched for it in the archives on two separate occasions with the assistance of two librarians, but with no success.  Names in the information are BRECKINRIDGE, CARSON, GALE, GREEN, & others. Dates entered run from 1768 to 1899.   The Bible is said to have belonged to Mary HUTCHINS GREEN.  HUTCHINS & GREEN's settled in the Natchez district in the eighteenth century.  I have a photocopy of this handwritten genealogical information  which includes Mary HUTCHINS GREEN & her husband, Abner GREEN.  They lived in the Natchez area & reared their family there.  If anyone has information on where the original sheets may be or perhaps has a better copy, or if you have suggestions of where I can pursue this further, please let me know.  01/23/99
