My great,great, grandparents were Willim Alford and Luvicia Bailey Bailey left Luarens County, S.C. in the middle of the 1850s and came to Mississippi with some or all of their children. The children were Elizabeth Jane, James Franklin, Mary Francis, William Holcomb(Henry), John Clark, Sarah Catherine, and Ludlow. My great grandfather was William H. I know the history of John Clark, but I do not know what came of James Franklin Bailey, nor do I know where Ludlow Bailey is buried.

BELK, BYRD, HARGROVE, HENRY, SWAIN posted by Betty Ross on Wednesday, February 3, 1999

I need to find parents of the following: W. N. Hargrove,b. 1841, d.Jun 1919, married to Annie, who I believe was A, R. Belk, (1st married to Joseph Byrd), the 2nd mar. occuring in 1886. Both Hargrove and "Annie" are buried in Oakgrove cemetery in Old Myrtle. Joel C. Swain, b. Nov 1840, d. Feb 1919 mar to A. R. Henry, b.abt 1840/45, d.1935/42. These should be buried in Union Co. also. I have civil war info on both ggrandfathers and good evidence they were both born in MS (from Tippah Co. 1850 cen). I want to verify that these are the families listed on the 1850 census as Willie and Nancy Hargroves, born in SC with one son, William,9, and John and Lucinda Swain with a son, Joel C. age 9. The Swain family migrated SC, GA, MS Can anyone suggest a direction for me to pursue this verification of identities?

SHERBIT, SHURBET posted by Larry Shurbet on Wednesday, March 3, 1999

In our search we felt it appropriate to include Union County to find information which might assist us. My Mother and I have been searching for any and all information regarding "Henry Middleton? Shurbet." H.M.S. resided in Prentiss and enlisted in the Confederacy in 1862 in 19th Infantry, CO-K. We have copies of documents that show this but we are unable to find much else. On his military papers his name was usually spelled "Sherbit", however, there are different spellings as I'm sure you know. He served at Richmond VA, at Chimbrazo Hospital as a Guard, and later in Columbus, and return to Prentiss at the close of the Civil War. H.M.S. was born 1814 in Spartanburg SC?, and died and is buried in Prentiss, MS in 1892. He was my G-G-G Grandfather. His Son, to whom I descend, was Zadus Brister Shurbet. One Genealogist suggests that he was a spy for the Confederacy, and suggests that that is the reason we are unable to find much information. If you can be of any assistance, Mom and I would sure appreciate your help. Your Heritage Friend, Larry
