Dortha McElroy Greenlee - Thurs Apr 16, 1998

Hugh GREENLEE, born 1796 in NC, lived in Fayette Co., AL @ 1830 and Pickens
Co., AL by 1833. He lived in WINSTON CO., MISSISSIPPI in 1850 and Choctaw
Co. in 1860. His son, David Jasper Newton GREENLEE was my husband's great grandfather. DJN's son, David Clarence GREENLEE, stated that DJN's mother was-----------
SHOEMAKER or SCHUMACHER. On the 1850 census for Winston Co.:
Hugh GREENLEE, 53, born NC; Catharine GREENLEE, 44, NC; Jasper, 17, AL; Nancy, 11, MS; Mary, 9, MS; Delilah, 7, MS;  Andrew, 5, MS; Mezemiah (female), 2, MS
We believe that Hugh had older children but do not have names for them. If you will notice, there is such an age gap between Jasper (DJN) and Nancy, I believe that these latter children are from a second marriage. I have seen a record of an Andrew MCKNIGHT deeding a gift for a new grandchild, Deliliah GREENLEE, in 1843 in Winston Co. I'm wondering if Deliliah's mother was
Catharine MCKNIGHT? Will be glad to exchange information.

Val McGinness - 12 May 1998

Need info on Aris Alexander or any of his family listed in the following biography: b. around 1815 South Carolina m. Nicey Jane Skinner b. around 1822 South Carolina. He, his wife, and children most probably died in Mississippi. The last date found indicating they were still alive, was Saturday, September 8, 1860, when the U.S. Census was taken at the family home in Winston County, Mississippi. LINEAGE - PARENTS: John and Mary "Polly" Woodham Alexander - PATERNAL GRANDMOTHER: Frances (nee?) Alexander - MATERNAL GRANDPARENTS: Edward, Jr. and Mary (nee?) Woodham - MATERNAL G-GRANDPARENTS: Edward, Sr. and Eleanor (nee?) Woodham CHILDREN - 1. James S. Alexander - 2. Leonard Alexander - 3. Nancy Alexander - 4. John Alexander - 5. William Alexander - 6. V.W. Alexander NOTES · Census references are: 1840 Darlington County, South Carolina ; 1850 Darlington County, South Carolina ; 1860 Louisville Township, Winston County, Mississippi ; and 1870 Neshoba County, Mississippi. · Both the 1840 and 1850 South Carolina U.S. Census surveys show Aris' family to have lived in the Second Division Township of Darlington County, South Carolina where Aris was listed as a farmer. · According to a Mississippi census (separate from the U.S. Census), Aris and Nicey's children all attended school. The same census survey states that Aris had a personal estate valued at $6,000, and real estate valued at $2,000. The census shows that many of the same people listed in Aris' neighborhood in Mississippi were born in South Carolina. Two other Alexanders were listed as "Head of Household" in the Louisville Township survey. They were J.G. Alexander, a carpenter who was born in Alabama , and W.H. Alexander, a farmer born in South Carolina around 1824. · The 1860 census in Winston County, Mississippi was taken on Saturday, September 8th, 1860. All of Aris' known family was alive at that time, including the youngest three children who were not included in the 1850 census taken back in South Carolina. The youngest three were born in Mississippi . · The 1870 census finds Aris in Neshoba County (adjacent to Winston County), Mississippi . It was taken Monday, June 20, 1870 showing Aris' location as Philadelphia Post Office. The list of children in this newer census shows more children in the household - all born between the 1860 and 1970 censuses. They were probably Aris' grandchildren. · The census' hand-written script is difficult to decipher, but it looks like Aris' real estate value at that time was around $1000. · It's likely that Aris was named after his uncle, Aris Woodham, Sr. · Nicey was a daughter of Lemuel and Nicey Jane Belk Skinner. · As evidenced in the census, Nicey’s name has also been seen as "Nicy" and "Nice". · 1870 found Aris in neighboring Neshoba County, so he may be buried there.
