    1. [MSMARION] new list home is MS-MARION
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. A new home for the Marion 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-MARION and select Join Group. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1.

    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. As of now, the Marion county mailing list has 79 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 Mississippi Rootsweb lists that will be going defunct next month. In my next email, later today, I'll send you further information regarding this and how to join the new home for this list. Tim Stowell Chattanooga

    1. [MSMARION] 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. [MSMARION] 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. [MSMARION] 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. [MSMARION] 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. [MSMARION] 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. [MSMARION] Lee Family
    2. Anyone out there working on the tangled up Lee family? I am trying to place a Lee Carlos Evon Lee born 20 Jan 1881 in Perry Co (son of George Wilkey Lee and Rebecca) was married TWICE. Everyone has his 2nd marriage documented well, it’s that first marriage that is a booger. Carlos’s daughter, Bobbie Joyce (she has since died) told me that her daddy was first married to Eliza Lee before marrying her mother, Claudia Simmons. Bobbie Joyce said that Eliza was a LEE just like her daddy (Lee married a Lee) and that Eliza’s father was John Lee. The IGI has Carlos Evan [sic] Lee married to Eliza Lee on 25 Dec 1903 in Perry Co. In 1910 they are living in Forrest Co. The 1910 census has.... Carlie C. Lee, head, male, white, age 26, married, first marriage, married 7 years, born in MS, both parents born in MS, speaks English, farmer, own farm, able to read and write Liza Lee, wife, female, white, age 27, married, first marriage, married 7 years, mother of 3[?] children, 2 children living, born in MS, both parents born in MS, speaks English, able to read and write Lenora Lee, daughter, female, white, age 5, single, born in MS, both parents born in MS Verna Lee, daughter, female, white, age 2, single, born in MS, both parents born in MS My problem is, I can't figure out who Eliza Lee's daddy is. I THINK it is John Lee, son of John Riley Lee and Asenith M. Seal but I can't prove it. The two men were in the same area at the same time and John Lee (son of John Riley Lee) was born in 1850 which would be the right age to be Eliza's father. My biggest problem is that there are so many families missing in the census records in this area. It is like they forgot to to enumerate entire areas of the county. Marion Co is missing a big chunk of what would become Lamar and Perry Co is missing a chunk of what would become Forrest. It is very frustrating. Anyway, I was hoping a Lee research could shed light on this :) Michele Simmons Lewis

    1. [MSMARION] a puzzle
    2. Here is a genealogy puzzle for you to solve :) Everyone loves a good mystery and this mystery happens to involve a Forrest County woman. Not just any woman but one that hasn't been seen nor heard from since June 17, 1940. Her name is Ella Ford Collins Graham, or at least we think that is her name. So why is this mysterious woman important now? Maybe if we take a look at what we do know the importance will become clear. It all starts with a man by the name of Albert Gallitan Graham who was born September 1844 in Perry County. He lived with his parents Archibald Graham and Sarah Brown until he proudly went off to war in 1864. A little side note, Albert was one of the few volunteers from this area that was issued a Confederate rifle. Most of the men brought their own. If you stop by the Lamar County Historical Society and Museum in Purvis you can see Albert's gun on display. Albert served well and came home in one piece. After the war, Albert married Mary Grantham on March 4, 1867 and the two of them made their home in Marion County (present day Lamar) raising their four children. Mary was a widow with three small children. Her first husband Elias Whiddon had been killed in the war. Albert was your average 1800s Mississippi farmer and he and his wife squeaked out a very modest living. The next major event was when Albert's wife Mary died on April 6, 1917. She is buried in the Grantham Family Cemetery in Lamar County. From then on Albert lived with his unmarried daughter Sarah (she never did marry and she too is buried at Grantham in an unmarked grave). Times were rough and on September 3, 1917 Albert applied for his Confederate pension when he turned 73. He continued to live with his daughter until he became too old and feeble. On September 10, 1925, at age 81, he was admitted to the Jefferson Davis Confederate Soldiers Home (now Beauvoir) in Biloxi. Less than a year later, on April 21, 1926, Albert died. He is buried in the Beauvoir Confederate Cemetery. Now is when the story gets interesting and our mystery woman makes her appearance. On June 17, 1940, 14 years after Albert had died, a woman by the name of Ella Ford Collins Graham submitted a Confederate widow's pension application to the Forrest County pension board in Albert's name. In this application she stated that she and Albert had married in Purvis in 1916. There are very few other clues about this woman. She stated that she was 67 years old (which would put her date of birth at about 1873 and make her 29 years younger than Albert). She stated she had been living in the state of Mississippi for 60 years. It is unknown where she was born. At the time of this application she had not remarried. Before and after she applied for the widow's pension Ella is nowhere to be found in the records. At this time we don't know if Ford was her middle name or her maiden name nor whether Collins was her maiden name or a first married name. This has made it impossible to locate her in the census records (especially considering that the names of Ford and Collins are both quite common). No Mississippi death certificate has been found for Ella nor is she listed in the book, Forrest County, Mississippi Tombstone Inscriptions, (several other county cemetery books were also checked) though her name could have easily changed if she had remarried. In all of the previous records of Albert Graham there is no mention of Ella. On his pension application he is listed as a widower. On the 1920 and 1930 census he is living with his daughter and is listed as a widower. On his admission to Jefferson Davis he is listed as a widower with his dead wife being named Mary. Ella stated she and Albert married in 1916 in Purvis but Albert's first wife Mary didn't die until 1917. The marriage records at the Lamar County courthouse have been hand searched with nothing found (several years worth searched). However, common law marriages were not that uncommon during this time period through they certainly were not publicized. We have but one more very important clue. Interviews with several elderly descendants and relatives of Albert have reported that Albert fathered a child out of wedlock in his old age with an unknown woman. Could Ella be the mother? It would make sense. Ella might have felt entitled to the widow's pension especially if times were rough and she felt she was Albert's common law wife raising a child alone. If these family stories are true, then Ella's son or daughter could still be alive (born 1916-1926?). How many people alive today can say their father was a Confederate soldier? None that I know of so if this child does exist it is something to be celebrated. So where does your humble reporter fit into all of this? I happen to be Albert's great, great granddaughter and would welcome meeting a previously unknown child of Albert's. I have much to tell him or her (or his or her children) about Albert. If you have any information about Ella Ford Collins Graham or any of her children, please give me a call (706-691-6884) or send an email to cranberryfrog@cobridge.tv. I look forward to hearing from you. Michele Lewis, Staff Genealogist McDuffie Mirror Thomson, McDuffie Co, GA
