JAMES GEORGE MIDDLETON--have found that he was elected Franklin County Coroner in 1828. He was a Freemason, initiated 28 Feb 1829 and passed (whatever that means) 24 Jul 1830. The Lodge was The Ben Franklin Lodge #11 in Franklin County and was closed. It is now Lodge #48 I believe.

Charles Thaddeus MONTGOMERY was born 20 April 1846 to Martha McMANUS and Hugh MONTGOMERY of Amite County. Hugh had a prior wife, Francis JONES, who died about 1792. Charles Thaddeus later moved to Brookhaven with his family which included his wife, Sarah McLELLAND, and son Thomas Hugh Montgomery Sr.. From what I have been able to research (his father) Hugh Montgomery had a brother, William, who married Sarena ALBRITTON. Hugh settled in Amite County about 1790 and died there in 1846 - just prior to the birth of Charles Thaddeus. His widow, Martha, then married a CLARKE and they moved over to Lincoln County. I believe Hugh and William came from South Carolina (possibly Richland County) but I have never found a family which "fit". Any info on the Montgomerys, McManus, Albrittons,McLellands, etc., etc., would be truly appreciated.
