SALES Family

Query Posted - February 8th, 2007

I am trying a info on the family "SALES" who were given property after the civil war in Lxington,Holmes County,MS. They at one time were slaves who were freed. They also died in this county believing by the family may have been buried on their property. If the U.S. government did give them some small acrerage would it be in their name? Can't seem to locate any info on the census for this town and time period. Any direction you could give me would be extremely helpful.

Thank You,

Linda Miller, Texas Order of Confederate Rose Historian
