Noxubee County, Mississippi

The following is taken from Probate Records Book A, microfilmed by the LDS church in 1972. While searching for papers on my families in the county, I made photo copies of all the pages which contained names I recognized as being "related" to those I was searching for. In that process, I accumulated some information on others who were in the county, and most likely had some tie to my family.

Below are abstracts from those records. Having been made aware that thru ommission I was guilty of the one thing I did not wish to do, insult the African-American, I went back and pulled names of slaves and hope that by posting this information I may help others in locating their forefathers also. God Bless, and Happy Hunting.

I have several more "books" from which I can pull information.  As I have stated, I was searching for my family of Hudson and the related families in Noxubee County, Mississippi when I became acutely aware of the importance of the material accumulated.
