My great- grandfather, Nicholas Oswell, is listed in the 1880 Federal census
as living in Monroe County, but I have no other information. I am particularly
interested in information about his death (about 1880-1900), but understand there
are no death certificates earlier than 1912 in the state records. Any information,
such as cemetary records, would be appreciated.

GOLD POWELL WHITFIELD
GARDNER,, MAYFIELD, CALDWELL
My great-grandfather, Nelson PETERSON, his wife, Sophia and their children George,
Phillip and Venda/veneva were in MS in 1870. I found them on the 1870
census record. They were in Aberdeen, Monroe County, MS. I know that they stayed
in MS at least through 1875 as their youngest child, Minnie, was born in MS in 1875.
I don't know when they left MS but I found Sophia and the children in the 1880 IL
census but Nelson wasn't listed so I am thinking that they were either divorced or he
died in MS and she returned to Rock Island, IL where her relatives lived. What was
happening in Monroe County MS in the period that would have encourged them to go there
and would the county clerk have any information about his death or divorce if it
occurred in MS between 1875 and 1880? Would there be a record of Minnie's birth in the
county for the year 1875?

On August 25, 1999, I placed a query on the board. Little wonder that I did not get
any feedback for I was asking the wrong question. That post read: Seeking information
about WHITE family buried in Greenbrier Cemetery near Becker MS. Jim Leonard White b. 1903
d. 1976; Sally White b. 1906 d. 1976; Hattie Bell White b. 1905 d. 1935. Their parents are
Pleas David (son of Pleasant and Nancy Catherine White of Lamar Co. AL) and Pink Nichols White
(daughter of Green Jackson and Ruth Duncan Nichols) are also buried there. Everything was
correct except for the mother's name. The mother's name was Azore Della Bridges White
daughter of Joseph J. and Rachel White Bridges. Pink Nichols was the wife of Pleas David's
brother Alfred Winchester White. I do apologize for any confusion that this has caused.

My great uncle is Omer Coy Smith born 1917 in Amory, Mississippi in Monroe co Ms.
When he tried to get a copy of his birth certificate at the courthouse in
Aberdeen his original birth certificate had his indian name. He did not
even know he had an indian name but his mother was part indian. It took
him four months to change his birth certificate to his English name. I am
trying to find what kind of indian he was. I was told Shoshone, but since
his mother was from Alabama I don't believe there were any Shoshone
indians in Alabama in the mid to late eighteen hundreds. How could I find
the original birth certificate showing his indian name? Maybe that would
say what kind of indian he was. Any help greatly appreciated. My email is
firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks, Ross
