James WALKER came to Tippah Co MS from GA with his wife Jane BARKLEY and children. He had several brothers there in the time frame 1830-1870. Other WALKERS in the family were Joseph, Ezekiel, Goldsmith, John. I am a descendant of James' son THOMAS who married Frances WILLSON. They were on the 1850 Tippah Co Census. James, Thomas, Goldsmith, and John removed before 1860 to the area of Lavaca County, TX. Would like to correspond with descendants of any of these Walkers.

Searching for my long lost GGGgrandfather WALKER. His children John Caldwell Calhoun WALKER and Amanda J. WALKER, who married R.N. (R.M.) STEPHENS in 1867 Tippah County, appeared in the 1860 Tippah County Census with OWENS family, Oswald and Mary C. Mary C. WALKER appeared in the 1850 Tippah County Census married to Hugh WALKER. I believe this could be their father, but would like to know if any others who are researching the WALKER family have any information on him. The census states he was born in SC {1814} and there are other WALKERS born in SC who appeared in the same census. Please e-mail or write to Jennifer Russell, P.O. Box 145, Springfield AR 72157.

MARY ELIZABETH WALLACE was b. April 30, 1839, and died April 30, 1874. On June 24, 1864, she married William Payton HANDLEY in Tippah County, Mississippi. This is second hand information, of course. In 1975, when I began researching, William Payton had four children still living and the youngest had his Bible in which he had listed his marriages and his offspring. He was married three times and Mary Elizabeth was the first wife. According to the four children living in 1975, he met and married his first wife in Ripley, Mississippi. I believe that is in Tippah County. If a marriage certificate (or death certificate) could be found, it should be a big help. I do not know the names of her parents, but Payton's second wife was her niece (MARY SUSAN WALLACE) so we know she had at least one brother. Any help appreciated.

I have been researching the family of W. T. Watkins who was born in Mecklenburg County Va 31DEC1810 and moved to Tippah County in the 1840's. I have seen photos of his home in Tippah County, west of Walnut very near the Benton County line. I have also located his and wife's grave just across the line in Benton County. Of particular interest is his son who was born 23may1842 in VA. He would have been in his 30's during the start of the Civil War. I have not found him in the Civil War Archives. He married Dora Emmiline Abernathy, but I do not know when. John isburried in Olive Branch, MS. I do not believe any relatives remain in Tippah County. The families were very large and I have uncountable Watkins relatives in the Memphis area.
I also have information on three generations back before W.T. Watkins that moved to Tippah County. All information is available for anyone interested. I have lost contact with some of the family that went even further than I when we started recording the history in the late 1960's.
My information is not well organized at the moment, looking for the best way to computerize handwritten records so that sharing is accommodated. I would gladly answer questions that anyone has on what I know of the family.

I am looking for any information on the above families in Tippah County in the 1840 -1855 time frame. My ggrandfather Linza R. Brim and wife Jemima (Simpson) Brim were in the 1850 census for Tippah Co. Linza was born in Lincoln Co.,TN in 1828/29 the son of William Brim/Mary Westbrook. I have very little information on the family during that time except that William died while Linza was young and some of the family moved to Tippah Co. Linza moved to Navarro Co., TX in 1854 where he married Sarah J. Scott in 1869 after Jemima died in 1868. Sarah was born in MS in 1848 but I don't know if it was in Tippah Co. Her family came to TX in 1851. I don't know if Linza had siblings but assume he did since a bibliography of him from Navarro Co. said he was the only member of his family to come to Texas. I am descended from his second marriage. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
