    1. [MS-HARRISON-SHIP-ISLAND] Need Help with Tesearch
    2. Hi Everyone- I am new to the list and I need your help! I am researching and compiling information for a book titled: "The History of the Lyman, MS" - and wish to solicit help from anyone anywhere. For you that are not familiar with the Lyman area, it's located on the north end of Gulfport in the vicinity of Hiways 49 and 53. At one time this was a thriving town, divided into with streets, stores and even a theatre.The center of commerce were saw mills and a center for shipping citrus fruits grown in the area all supported by the Gulf & Ship Island Railroad. I have resided in the Lyman community for over 50 years and well remember some of the old families that are now gone. I wish now I had started this project sooner! As for my qualifications, I have written and published 7 family history books in the past. The Eastes Families of Indiana, The Descendants of John Long Sr. of Maryland (1625-1746), The Descendants of John Molloy from the Isle of Jura Scotland (1726-1804), The Descendants of Elisha Estes of Roane Co., TN, The Ancestors of Elisha Estes of Roane Co.,TN, The Saga of Obadiah Estes/Eastes and The Estes/Eastes Families of America, Our English Roots (1495-1720). This proposed book will not be for sale but placed on CD and given free to Historical repositories and those individuals who are interested. I found long ago that family history books cannot be compiled and published with the thought in mind to sell enough copies to recover expenses. The target population is to small! So, I publish enough copies for my immediate family then put it on CD and give them free to others to read on a computer or print their own. Once printed, it can be bound at places like Office Depot at a reasonable price. I am searching for any information on the early settlement of the Lyman Community. I am particularly interested in stories and pictures of the local businesses, the people and sawmills and the railroads that were used in their support. Also any court records, maps, stories and pictures of the families who lived in the area in the early days. At 87 years, I am home bound and cannot visit the libraries like in the past so and have to rely on on-line resources and the goodwill of friends and neighbors! If anyone has any material that I can borrow to be scanned and returned or suggestions on where information might me located I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanking you in advance for your consideration - Best Regards to All - LeRoy (Roy) F. Eastes MSgt Ret.

    2. pat creel
    3. These links will only be online for a few more days. I am not selling anything, I just thought someone would like to read this on Ship Island. regards, Pat, list-owner http://www.sunherald.com/160/story/191165.html http://www.sunherald.com/160/story/191165-p2.html By KAT BERGERON A little slice of history New book details life on Ship Island Page 1 Ship Island is a slice of sandy beauty, an undeveloped barrier island inviting and restful to those who venture the 12 miles from the Mississippi Coast. The research of Theresa Arnold Scriber and her husband Terry G. Scriber, however, chronicles a little-known era of miserable existence. Their new book, "Ship Island, Mississippi: Rosters and History of the Civil War Prison" gathers the names of men and women forced to live, and sometimes die, on the island. It is, first of all, a resource book because of the soldier and civilian rosters of Southerners imprisoned or buried there and the Union guards who died there. It is a rare compilation of names that will help genealogists, historians and war researchers with their own writings. "Ship" is also a place to learn ancestor links to the prison. Secondly, the book by McFarland & Co., a North Carolina publisher of scholarly and research works, gathers stories and eye-witness accounts of the Civil War era. Unlike the name rosters, the history is not comprehensive but offers glimpses of island life and unbearable elements - scorching sun, biting flies, poor food, gritty sand. Union Maj. Gen. Benjamin, who first oversaw the prison proved his nickname "Beast" was appropriate. Freed black men from the Louisiana Native Guard served as Union guards, a unique occurrence. "That small island in the Gulf of Mexico had a significant role in American history," said Theresa Scriber, who learned about Ship when she lived in nearby Slidell. "We felt a book like this could reach a wide audience and serve many different purposes." An interesting aside is that she is a New Englander, also land of Beast Butler; her co-author husband grew up in Louisiana immersed in Confederate history. The rosters are divided by states with a separate section for citizen prisoners. With each name are such facts as enlistment dates and locations, troop assignments, POW data and veteran benefits. The civilian roster, when possible, tells why they were imprisoned. "We had to go to many different sources, archives and private collections because the information is so scattered," Theresa Scriber said. An estimated 3,500 were imprisoned on Ship, mostly Confederates, but the miserable existence included the guards. When President Lincoln tired of stories of Butler's heavy handiness in the Gulf region and occupied New Orleans, he reassigned Butler. Butler whisked away his records, and, that combined with unreadable island log book pages create record gaps. Page 2 The island has a long and fascinating history, one acknowledged mostly by locals and the Gulf Islands National Seashore park rangers who now oversee Ship. Two big chapters are from 1699 when French explorers moored off Ship and from the War of 1812, when the British used Ship as a staging ground for Battle of New Orleans, The era the Scribers explore most is the 1860s, starting with the poor Confederate strategy of abandoning the island, a move that led to the capture of the South's largest city, New Orleans. At least 400 died at the POW camp, most buried in graves there. Some Union dead were reburied elsewhere not long after the war, but most bodies were claimed by island erosion. "The prison was a very desolate, grim experience," Terry Scriber said. "The prisoners were guarded by some of the first Negro soldiers in the Union Army and for everyone, it was quite a culture shock. It is interesting to see the prejudice of both sides and how they interacted." "The one thing we hope this book does is to bring attention to Ship Island's role as a prison. There's plenty of books out there on other Civil War island prisons, but there's been little attention to this one." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- About the book What: "Ship Island Mississippi: Rosters and History of the Civil War Prison" by Theresa Arnold-Scriber and Terry G.

    3. copied MOVING DAY FOR LISTS The RootsWeb.com mailing lists are moving to a new list management system. However, all the lists won't be updated at once. It will take about two weeks to complete the process. Additional information about the update and a current schedule can be found at http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/migrate_sched.html How will it affect you? Your current subscription(s) will transfer automatically to the new system so there will be NO need to re-subscribe to your list(s). However, because the sending and receiving of list e- mail will be handled by a new system, you may notice a few changes to your list(s). Digest subscribers will notice a small difference in the layout, volume and issue numbers of the list digests. The "-L" is being dropped from the "official" list name. This means the "from" address your mailing list e-mails come from will be different -- ListName@rootsweb.com vs. the current ListName-L@rootsweb.com. You may have to adjust your spam filters or put the new address on your "accept" list to prevent messages from being caught in your "junk" folders. RootsWeb appreciates your patience during this transition and hopes that the mailing lists will continue to be a valuable tool in your genealogy research.

    3. Re: NEW: to do a global search of all RootsWeb mailing list archives use "advanced search" Rootsweb has changed their search in the new beta search for all archived messages, this is probaily easier. Clicking this link takes you to a beta search engine, which enables you to do a global search of all RootsWeb mailing list archives. Use advanced section for new search: http://archiver.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/search Search Tips a.. Search for a phrase by putting quotes around a group of words, like "john jones" b.. Perform a single character wildcard search using "?". For example, j?nes will find jones and janes c.. Perform a multiple wildcard search using "*". This will look for zero or more characters, so jon* will find jon, jones, and jonson d.. Use "AND" to require the search to find all words or phrases. "john AND jones" will only return results with both words e.. Use "NOT" to exclude words or phrases. For example "john NOT jones" will return all results with the word john but not jones ----------------------------- orginal message Subject: NEW: to do a global search of all RootsWeb mailing list archives Date: Fri, 7 Jul 2006 19:25:27 -0500 www.Rootsweb.com EDITOR'S DESK: NEWS, NOTES; SOME SITES WORTH SEEING NEWS: List Archives Search.

To refine or cancel this search, please visit http://pml.rootsweb.com/ Source: BROOKS-NE-L@rootsweb.com Subject: Joseph Brooks (1831-1899) Eng to ME to RI, Eurania Brooks (1838-1897) ME to RI Ok...a while ago I sent out an inquiry about two of my Brooks relatives, Joseph Brooks (1831-1899) and his wife Eurania H. Brooks (1838-1897). Brooks is Eurania's maiden name as well as her married name. Since those previous inquiries, I have gotten the following information to share on JOSEPH BROOKS: Joseph Brooks was born on 29 March 1831 to George Brooks and Alice Isherwood. There is evidence that Joseph was born in Bury, Lancashire, England. This is based on British Census records and the IGI. The 1851 British Census shows Joseph living at home with his parents and siblings, working a power loom in a mill. In 1854, on the ship "Chapin", there is a Joseph Brooks (age 21) who is a dyer. He comes from England and arrives in Boston on May19th. This may or may not be him of course, but there are similarities making it worth noting. According to Civil War Pension records, Joseph and Eurania (who is sometimes shown as Urania, Urana, Lurania, etc) were married 23 Feb 1856, a year later then stated in the IGI, which has them marrying the same date in 1855. In 1860, Joseph and Lauraanna Brooks, ages 27 and 26, appear in the Census for Saco, York, ME, p.66. Their daughter Clara E. is less than a year old. Joseph is an operator in a mill. Clara is my connection to this branch of the Brooks. Joseph Brooks was a civil war veteran, having served with the 13th Regimental Infantry Volunteers of Maine, as well as the 30th Regimental Infantry Volunteers from December of 1861 until August of 1865. while in service he served at Ship Island near Louisiana, as well as along the banks of the Mississippi at Fort XXX and in campaigns into Texas and parts of Louisiana. He also served defending Washington, and with Sherman's army mainly as guards. In 1870 Joseph, Eurania and Clara lived in Taunton, Bristol County, MA. He was working in a cotton mill. A bible given to Joseph Brooks by the captain of the ship Columbia, Capt McKay, indicates that he traveled on the ship in 1879. Assumedly he may have gone to England to visit relatives. By 1880, Joseph and Lurana Brooks are in the 1880 Rhode Island US census. Joseph is a machinist and the census lists a daughter Leslie, age 5 born in Massachusetts. They appear on page 121C. Prior to his death he petitioned the US for a Civil War pension of Disability of which he was awarded a monthly sum of $6 due to "salt rheum and sores of the legs" suffered during the war. He was briefly hospitalized at winchester VA in 1865 for treatment of these conditions, staying htere from the 4th of April until the 25th of April 1865. In the 1890s he petitioned for full disability claiming a continuing case of diarrhea due to the war. It appears to have been denied. Pension disability records describes Joseph as being 5'6" tall, of light complexion, with dark eyes and dark hair. One document, witnessed by his son-in-law, James F Moore, indicates that met in approximately 1877. He died at age 68y, 5m, and 15d in Providence, RI, in 1899 at 66 Pocasset Ave. At the time he died he was widowed. He died of chronic bronchitis, valve disease of the heart and uraemia. He worked as a machinist. His death record confirms his parents names. According to the 1883, 1884, 1885, 1890, 1891 and 1892 Providence City Directories, they lived at 10 Gardner St., Providence, RI. I am still looking for any other connections to either Joseph or Eurania. Eurania was the daughter of Benjamin Brooks and his wife Mary (maiden name unknown). Both Benjamin (abt 1804-?) and Mary (abt 1810-?) were born in Maine. They had 4 children: Reuben (abt 1831), Eurania H. (abt 1838), Alonzo T. (abt 1839), and Mary (abt 1841). In 1860, Benjamin and Mary Brooks, ages 55 and 50, live with their son Alonzo, daughter Mary, and a child Sarah A. They are farmers. In 1870, Benjamin and his wife Mary, ages 66 and 58, appear in the Norridgewook, Somerset, ME census on page 86. Both were born in ME, he working as a farmer and she keeping house. They live next door to their son, Alonzo Brooks, and his family. So, I am hoping some of this information may be helpful in finding other Brooks connections, especially to Eurania's side of the Brooks tree. Thanks ! Dale daleny59@hotmail.com
