Book Report: Amite Co., MS, 1699 - 1890

Casey, A. E. (2001). Amite County, Mississippi, 1699-1890.
Volume 3: The Environs. 
Greenville, SC: Southern Historical Press, Inc. 
(Original work published 1957).

When is the last time you had a new resource to explore: a new map, document or book that you were anxious to look at closely? This book just arrived at my doorstep and I an full of happy anticipation. Some of my families lived in Mississippi: Alford, Brown, Brumfield, Dillon, Fortenberry & Smith. They lived in Amite, Marion, Pike & Walthall counties. Potentially this book could have information on any or all of those families. It could be filled with important pieces of the puzzle OR it could have just a clue or two OR it could be that I can't connect any of the data inside to my family at this time. However, before I even open the cover, I am hopeful & full of anticipation!


  1. Looking forward to reading lots of new blog posts about your discoveries!

  2. What an interesting era to research. I hope you find fascinating information on these families.
