Hello, my name is Betty Aron-Schneider and I am the County Coordinator (CC) for Leflore County. I would like to thank all of the CC's of Leflore County who have volunteered before me. They have done such a wonderful job of gathering information and links to post on these pages. I hope I can measure up to their standards.
I do not live in Leflore County, nor in Mississippi. I am in Temecula, California. I am sorry but I am unable to do any local look-ups or research. I do have strong family links to Leflore County, specifically Greenwood. My father, two paternal and three maternal generations before him came from Leflore and Yalobusha Counties. One of my Great Grandfather's (Albert Aron) was a cotton proctor in Greenwood and the other (Thomas Jefferson Carr) was a physician in Greenwood. I visit as often as I can but not as often as I would like.
I hope you will find the information you are looking for while you are visiting. If you have comments about or problems with these pages, or if you have information to add, please contact me.

The county is located within the state's delta region where cotton and catfish are plentiful. Mississippi is third behind California and Texas in cotton production, but 80% of all catfish produced in the United States come from the Mississippi delta.
Greenwood, once called Williams Landing, is the county seat of Leflore.
