Some of the information on these pages is a bit out of date and does not reflect current research or changes--recommended and otherwise.

    My mother's side of the family settled Tensas Parish in Louisiana, and Clay, Copiah, and Pike Counties of Mississippi having come from Muhlenburg County, KY and Mifflin/Bedford Counties in Pennsylvania (Glenn, Vaught), Northern Alabama (McIntosh, McClure), Southwest Georgia (Kitchens, Moreland, Tucker, Echols), the Carolinas (Miller, Chesney, Vernon, Bonds, Whetstone), Virginia, and the Chesapeake (Dixon, Cottingham, Tilghman).



    1&2 3&4

    Pictures 1&2 are of my mother's great-grandparents, John Houston McIntosh and Mary Catherine Cottingham McIntosh.They settled in Crystal Springs, Mississippi in Copiah County. Mary Catherine was John Houston's third wife and these photos were probably taken at the time of their 1874 wedding. Photo 3 is of Mary Allene Glenn McIntosh who married John Ephriam McIntosh, a younger son of John Houston McIntosh and Mary Catherine Cottingham. This photo was probably taken at the time of their 1906 wedding. Photo 4 is of Mary Allene's mother, Sarah Rebecca Miller Foster Glenn. Sarah Rebecca Miller was from Clay County, Mississippi but moved to Southern MS after the death of her first husband, Lewellyn McClelland Foster, and her marriage to her second husband, Moses Dan Glenn. This tintype photograph was probably taken at the time of her 1878 marriage to Foster.

    My father's ancestors are from Amite County, Mississippi, Georgia, the Carolinas, South Louisiana, and Acadia.

    His father, John Clark Payne, Jr., was born in Amite County, Mississippi, the county that became the focus of my graduate school research and the topic of my master's thesis. In addition to information on my own Amite County roots, I have documentation for many other area families. For the past five years I've also been researching my paternal grandmother's family who were among the original settlers of Acadia (now Nova Scotia, Canada), Quebec, and later Ascension and Assumption Parishes in Louisiana. Just about any name that belonged to the Acadians is of interest to me.
    My father's maternal grandparents, Clebert Louis Joseph Marroy and Regina Nelie Daigle Marroy

    Anyone who has participated in any Southern Genealogy research quickly learns that geography is a key concern. Families moved with surprising frequency in the 18th and 19th centuries. While there are exceptions to any rule, most people followed set migration patterns; indeed, many people followed former neighbors into the newly opened territories. These lands were quickly organized into counties--the geographic and political entity most frequently encountered by genealogists.

    My current interest is the analysis of migration patterns in the American South from the post-Revolutionary days until the turn of the 20th century. In order to assist myself and anyone else who might be interested, I have listed each county in which I have ancestors with these ancestors names. Names in ALL CAPS indicate family names from whom I directly descend. Regular type denotes the last names of individuals who married into the family. Please click the link below to view the index; I had to move it to another page because of space constraints.
