    3. The new home for the Lowndes county mailing list has been set up. In a few minutes, I'll send out personal invitations to the subscribers of this list who wish to join the new group will be able to do so. I can not add members directly. 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. If you don't find an invitation in your email you may also go to this site - https://groups.io/g/MS-LOWNDES and select Join Group. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1.

She was living in Brooksville, Mississippi at the time. I have done a lot of on-line searching but the digitized newspapers for that area only go to 1922. I had a reply back from the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library and they checked the microfilm rolls and nothing showed up. I'm beginning to wonder if the family even bothered with an obituary.

    3. Do you know of any connection to a Robinson or Williams family from the Artesia area? I have a strong hunch that my 2G grandfather helped to bore the wells at Artesia. In the 1860 census his occupation is listed as Artesian Well Borer. He lived a few miles east of Artesia.

I think they lived in Lowndes as well. *Their children are named: Beatrice, Bill, Charlie, Johnny, Polly, Ruby, Myrtle, and Mable. *He supposedly came over from Ireland but the census indicates a MS place of birth. *I think her parents were William A/R Laney and Nancy Susannah "Susie.
