    1. [MSCOPIAH] new list home - MS-COPIAH
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. A new home for the Copiah county mailing list has been set up. Later today, I'll send out personal invitations to the subscribers of this list to join the new group. It should be a link you can click that will let you 'accept' the invitation to join the new group. You may need to check your spam folder as I can't say when such will be delivered. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1. Tim Stowell

    1. [MSCOPIAH] Status of the Copiah county list - 2020
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. As of yesterday, the Copiah county mailing list had 141 subscribers. In light of this list closing on March 2nd, with the full knowledge of the list owner - Susan Penn Groover, I am setting up a new home for this list. I've recently set up similar homes for other Rootsweb lists that are going defunct next month. In my next email, I'll send you further information regarding this and how to join the new home for this list. Tim Stowell Chattanooga

    1. [MSCOPIAH] Leave a Farewell Message
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Leave a Farewell Message*_/ This post was by Judith to MODAVIES: suggestion: People may want to post a "farewell" message on the mailing list before it goes to archive, and in this message include an email you plan to keep for the foreseeable future. A separate email could be set up expressly for this purpose if it is more convenient/secure. (You'll want web-based, not provider-based.) That way, if someone peruses the archive & finds a possible connection, they would have a way to get in touch with you privately. I have been on a couple of lists that went archival at some point, and I really wish I had done that, as our old email was provider-based and - once that provider went defunct, people looking through the defunct mailing list had no way to contact me (nor I them) It's easier to track people down these days, but I'd still suggest this. I think this to be an excellent idea, wish I thought it. I would like to expand to suggest that a post to include Your name, best address to reach you (one that might be dedicated to your genealogy research), a list surname(s) of interest, a list to places of interest (country, region, state, county), subject of interest, snail mail address (at your own risk), telephone number (again at your own risk), web address if you have a website, where you “moved.” Please keep in mind these to be suggestions and you should only provide what you would be comfortable for “ibots” to find. Might not want to wait to last minute. This would give system to process information and have it posted. With this in mind, please do not be concerned when you see my post to the nearly 300 (took inventory; final count was 298 – just sharing) mailing lists I admin. I will be leaving my time capsule to the list(s) in the coming days. But I will be here til Roots Web turn off the lights and lock the door. Let me take a few lines to acknowledge all the “thank-you” I have received. I started with a few surnames and expanded to counties more recently. But you are all “welcomed.” I try serve with the volunteer spirit and a happy heart. Please overlook my frustration that may boil to the top in the coming days. Susan

    1. [MSCOPIAH] Ramblings from the Backseat
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Ramblings from the Backseat*_/ Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. I have already announced that as of March 2^nd , when Roots Web ceases to function as a mailing list that I will be hanging up my administrator's hat. These are my observations and suggestions going forward. First and foremost, someone needs to step-up to be new administrator, chairman, leader, whatever title you like. Next a decision should be made whether to remain a mailing list or a bulletin board. Of course, what is to say both could be established. I personally have not read, but Dick Eastman has endorsed Group.io as a venue for mailing list. From what little time I have had, I would lean toward Group.io to maintain mailing list format. I have no experience with bulletin boards therefore I have no input. I am hearing Facebook, but I have issues with privacy and whether someone would make the site secure enough. I am sure there are other venues for bulletin board format. Can not stop someone setting up FB account, just do not bother to invite me. Also, Ancestry has an established bulletin board area, it is functioning. Due to the activity on most state lists, my next suggestion would be that county mailing lists consolidate to form one state list. When activity is established divide into regions. Too much activity then establish a county list (start at the top and drill down). Under the blanket of a state list posting could use subject line to keep the identity of the county ie; SUBJECT: [AL-SUMTER] Looking for … Surname lists are a horse of a different color. Suggestion here would be to make use of subject line. Kinda like reading a newspaper, the subject line is like a headline of a newspaper. Personally I pay attention to an informative subject line. A worry in the back of my mind is with the “mass exodus” from Roots Web to other venue on whether that venue can handle the new activity or whether “we” will cause that venue to crash and burn. Here's hoping that is a needless concern. Once the list is established … there needs to be centralized place where a directory or a place of registration that searching community would go to find the list. Since I am US based, USGenWeb comes to mind. This maybe more difficult step. USGenWeb sites are individually maintained. Hearing rumblings that this may be solved in the near future. Last concern (for the moment) would be “being nice and playing well with others.” Personally, have not experienced this problem. Frustration, maybe. Especially when Roots Web fell apart and returned “fixed” with continuing problems. For example, I still have to push through a post from someone using AOL. AOL users … this is why your post takes a little longer to be seen. Sorry, I do my best with the tools I have to work with. Patience is probably going to be the keyword in days to come. Patience with the leaders that will step forward. They are going to be putting a lot on their plates and will need support in establishing a new venue and getting it working, establishing their rules, etc. Congratulation to those lists that have found a “new home.” From what I see you are in good hands! Will try to make this last posting to those newly adopted lists. (Posting to all lists today.) At this point in time, Family Trees, Message Boards, Web Sites, & Wiki at Roots Web are not effected to my knowledge. Of course, Message Boards are already part of Ancestry. So open conversation. Work on finding a volunteer to lead the list forward. I'm gonna stop rambling for the moment. I'm here till they turn off the lights and lock the door. Susan

    1. [MSCOPIAH] Genealogy of Roots Web
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Genealogy of Roots Web*_/ Since most of us are genealogists or family historians, I write this to answer the primary questions I am receiving in “genealogy speak.” Mailing lists were scattered about the Internet prior to the conception of Roots Web (ie: AOL, Prodigy, Compuserve, and others) BIRTH: Sometime in 1996, Karen & Brian Leverich, conceived what it is now known as Roots Web. Roots Web grew to host uncountable mailing list of many subjects, surnames, places, etc. These mailing lists were free to its users/subscribers. MARRIAGE: June 2000. Roots Web was married (purchased by) Ancestry, Inc. with prenuptial agreement that mailing list services would remain free. I believe to be sometime in 2015, our beloved Roots Web began to suffer health issues. My speculation is outgrew its existence and its host was unable to keep up without a major and costly overhaul. After a year plus, Roots Web reopened its doors, but a lot of her faithful subscribers had lost interest or found other vehicles to convey their passages of information. During this time, other updates on the Internet have occurred. These changes have caused some subscribers unable to participate. Not qualified to expand on this other than to say that some folks have lost connection with Roots Web, DEATH: 2 March 2020. Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. BURIAL: Archives will be available to peruse. No further information as to where, how long, or whether a price tag will be added. Hope this helps. Susan Penn Groover

    1. [MSCOPIAH] Update
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. Hi everyone! This has been heavy on my heart since Ancestry / Roots Web announcement. I have been admin / moderator for various mailing lists for 25+ years (some lists that predate Roots Web). The options for change do not fit my personal criteria. This is, also, not happening at a time I am able to give personal time for this change. Plus, I think Ancestry is not given an adequate “heads up” for this change. (I personally admin 200+ lists) So I have made the decision to become a subscriber as opposed to an administrator. I will remain admin to the mailing lists I currently admin till Roots Web makes the changes they propose on March 2^nd . I am leaving the decision for change to the list members. I am still gathering options. I will post suggestions in the next few days. The major option I am hearing is Facebook. I suppose this could work. But Facebook, in my humble opinion, would be turning a mailing list into a message board. And various mailing list members have stated they would not Facebook. Personally, I am in this bucket. I have personal issues with Facebook. Open discussion on the list. Voice your opinion. Enough for now. Will post more on other options in the future. Susan Penn Groover, List Administrator

    1. [MSCOPIAH] Roots Web no longer supporting mailing list in March 2020
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. For those that have not heard the news ... Rootsweb will no longer be supporting mailing lists in March 2020.  It will remain read only, so archives will be accessible.  In my mind, I question how long. Please keep in mind that each mailing list archives is the property of RootsWeb and will not be able to moved, removed, etc. Only the mailing list members list will be accessible by the admin for that list. I am looking for alternatives which I have started listing below. Alternatives: Ancestry -- as I understand, this alternative is platform based. Meaning one would have to long into to post a message as opposed to simply sending an e-mail. Groups.io -- would keep mailing, but to get full function a fee would be required. Google Groups -- I have not researched this option.  Personally, I have issues with Google and will not pursue this option as admin. I suppose the major decision is whether to remain an e-mail based Group or platform based? My personal prerequisite is that it is FREE. Discussion in open...

    1. [MSCOPIAH] James Foster, died 1837
    2. BobFoster via
    3. While researching in the Copiah county loose probate records I came across these estate records for a James Foster who died 1837. It appears that this Foster family was in Sumter Co., Georgia before they moved to Mississippi. They aren’t related to my Fosters as far as I can tell. They may be related to the Foster/Forrester family that came from Georgia to Claiborne county, Mississippi before 1810. I’m posting it here in case anyone is interested in untraced Fosters in Copiah.

    1. [MSCOPIAH] Proof that the Moses Foster who married Otemasa died in Copiah county.
    2. BobFoster via
    3. I found this document while researching the the Copiah County loose probate records. It is badly damaged as indicated by the brackets. Because it was dated 1833, I am confident that it can't be referring to the Moses Foster who wrote his will in Copiah county in 1857 and died there in 1860. Because it identifies this Moses Foster as 'sen' I feel it must be referring to the Moses Foster who married Otemasa, the Choctaw woman. This is also very good evidence that he was indeed the father of the Moses Foster from Maryland who died in Copiah county in 1860. This also seems to confirm that Moses Foster senior was married before he married Otemasa, probably in Maryland. Moses must have had white as well as mixed-blood children. This may help explain why Moses’ mixed-blood son Hugh Foster needed his half-brother Moses to act on his behalf as an agent in an 1831 land dispute. I have uploaded this to the Copiah archives. I did not find any other records concerning the elder Moses in the Copiah probate records. Moses Foster Bond administration Received for Record June 24th 1833 John G.

    1. [MSCOPIAH] STRONG about 1730 - 1790
    2. LittleMiracles via
    3. Hi John John "Elder" STRONG is no relation to my Strong line. That line originally came from Cornwall England, mine comes from Rotherhithe on the Thames River. That was a big puzzle we had to sort out in the beginning, we thought they were all one big family but DNA proved there was no connection. Jim Rolff wrote a book about the Strong family, but he kept a couple of chapters separate as he couldn't find the link to join it all up together. Those chapters have now been taken out. I have a copy of them on my website, if any one wants to read them as they belong to my branch and they are not connected to his. The John buried at Strong Hill and was in the revolution is Edward's son John Henry. I have all about the family from John and his sister Mary. Sorry I am not familiar with the names Joseph or David. Seems you have as big a puzzle as I have with the family Many thanks for your help and good luck Pam http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~shamere/

    1. Re: [MSCOPIAH] MSCOPIAH Digest, Vol 10, Issue 2
    2. John via
    3.  My Strong line descends from Elder John Strong who arrived in America on the ship Mary and John arriving in Nantasket, MA on May 30 1630. The family grew in MA and CT. My 7th Great-Grandfather Joseph Strong came to the Natchez District which was still under Spanish control. The earlest record I have of him is that he served on a Spanish jury in either 1790 or 1791. Both he and his father David served in the American Revolution along with many uncles and cousins from CT. Joseph is probably buriedin Copiah County but can't locate his grave. He died in 1834 and at one time I had his obit which was carrried in a Liberty, MS, newspaper. He had 18 children and his wife's name was Delilah (unknown). The John Strong buried at Strong Hill Cemetery  also served in the American Revolution but believe he is from a different line than mine.  There are several books on Elder John Strong and his descendents written by Dwight Strong. They may be purchased from the Strong Family Association of America. There is a website online. I belong to several lineage organizations through the Strong line. If I can be of any other help please contact me at the email address below. Thanks, John Taylortaylorj1947@yahoo.com    From: "mscopiah-request@rootsweb.com" <mscopiah-request@rootsweb.com> To: mscopiah@rootsweb.com Sent: Tuesday, March 10, 2015 2:00 AM Subject: MSCOPIAH Digest, Vol 10, Issue 2 Today's Topics:   1.

Through DNA we have established that my STRONG line came down to NZ and some one went to Mississippi, have ten generations, but no linking the two. First one in Mississippi I have is Edward STRONG born abt 1730, died 1777, married 1762 Anna ETHERIDGE, born 1731, died 1815,  they had two children John Henry 1763 Mary (Sarah) 1767 Anna's parents are Lemual/Samuel ETHERIDGE and Mary BUTT.  Though I have both her parents and grandparents, I can not find Edward's parents. There is an odd items that pops up now and then, his father, maybe John, but no proof. There were two captains sailing from Greenwich England, where the STRONG's come from, that used to sail from Greenwich to North Carolina. Captain James STRONG sailed the Assistance Captain Thomas STRONG sailed the Jefferies The family member may have been on one of those as crew, passenger or just family but can't find any record. Most of the family are buried in Crystal Springs, Copiah and Strong Hill Cemetery. If any one can help with Edward's father - mother - and where they came from would be great, or if you can put me in touch with some one in the area that knows where to find records not on line yet.

    1. [MSCOPIAH] MSCOPIAH] STRONG - about 1730 -1790
    2. LittleMiracles via
    3. Hi Karen and Tricia Many thanks for your help but can't find any thing in those items. This is much like a last ditch effort to find the link I am looking for. Through DNA we have established that my STRONG line came down to NZ and some one went to Mississippi, have ten generations, but no linking the two. First one in Mississippi I have is Edward STRONG born abt 1730, died 1777, married 1762 Anna ETHERIDGE, born 1731, died 1815, they had two children John Henry 1763 Mary (Sarah) 1767 Anna's parents are Lemual/Samuel ETHERIDGE and Mary BUTT. Though I have both her parents and grandparents, I can not find Edward's parents. There is an odd items that pops up now and then, his father, maybe John, but no proof. There were two captains sailing from Greenwich England, where the STRONG's come from, that used to sail from Greenwich to North Carolina. Captain James STRONG sailed the Assistance Captain Thomas STRONG sailed the Jefferies The family member may have been on one of those as crew, passenger or just family but can't find any record. Most of the family are buried in Crystal Springs, Copiah and Strong Hill Cemetery. If any one can help with Edward's father - mother - and where they came from would be great, or if you can put me in touch with some one in the area that knows where to find records not on line yet. Any help gratefully appreciated. Pam http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~shamere/
