    • From: Alabama Records, Vol. 93 Jefferson County, Compiled by Pauline Jones Gandrud, and also in Lois Meyer's notes:

      Letter to A.G. Waldrop, Jefferson County, Alabama, Jonesborrough P.O.
      From :
      Tishomingo County, Miss.
      Bay Springs, Mississippi
      29 Jul 1847

      Dear Cousin:
      I take my pen in hand to let you know that we are all well at present. Hoping these few lines may find you all well. I received your letter dated March the 19th, which gave me great satisfaction to hear that you was all well and doing well. You will please excuse my long delay of writing to you.
      The connection is all well as far as I know. Crops is tolerable good. Corn is scarce. Old corn is worth 75 per bushel, bacon 10 to 12, wheat $1 per bushel. I want to hear from you all, Uncle Robert and Aunt Nancy, Uncle Zachariah and Aunt Hester, and Aunt Jane McClurken, and all of my cousins. Tell them that I would be glad to see them al
      James Lindsey is before the people for a seat in the State Legislature. Brother Carrol and David Franklin is merchandising. Wm. C. Lindsey has been twice to Louisvillle, Ky. to buy goods. B.L. Lindsey is teaching school and I finished laying cotton yesterday. We have had two children since I wrote you before, one is a boy and the other a girl. They are 9 months old. We call the boy John Micajah, and the girl Nancy Lavina. We think they are very smart and pretty.
      My dear cousin give my respects to all of the connection in that part of the country. Tell them that I would be glad to hear from them all when I write to one I write to all. I would be glad to hear from them [Meyer says "see you all"] and converse with you face to face, but as we live in different parts of the country, we can all write or have it done. Any of you can write better than I can, let me hear from you all and where you all live.
      I understand that Cousin Samuel Waldrop has moved somewhere in this state. If so let me know where he is so that I can write to him and learn how he is doing. Mother wants to see you all very bad.
      We had two barbecues in this neighborhood for the purpose of celebrating the fourth of July. One was on the 3rd and the other the 6th. They was both very well managed and good order prevailed throughout. The celebration was opened by prayer then the declaration read and a very appropriate address was made by Dr. Robert Morrow. He give the anti-war party thunder.
      I must come to a close, so no more at present but still remai
      truly yours,
      Holland Lindsey

      NOTE: Amanda M Lindsey was made a ward of Holland Lindsey in 1858, when she was 10. Ann E Lindsey was made the guardian for her sister Sarah Lindsey at that same time. (Where did this come from? It doesn't make sense. If Amanda was 2 in 1860, she would have not been 10 in 1858! Must be 1868 for the adoption?)

      In a letter to B. S. Lindsey in Baltimore, dated 23 Jul 1910, John Micajah Lindsey said that Holland was born in SC and then moved with his family first to middle TN (when he was 3 years old), to AL "when he was only a plow boy" and finally to Mississippi, where he "raised his family consisting of five boys and three girls."
      ==================================================================================
      Goodspeed's History of Itawamba County, Mississippi (1891)

      From: Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Mississippi, Embracing an Authentic
      and Comprehensive Account of the Chief Events in the History of the State and a
      Record of the Lives of Many of the Most Worthy and Illustrious Families and
      Individuals. Vol. 1. Chicago: Goodspeed Publishing Company, 1891.

      From: Chapter XII. Counties of the Chickasaw Cession. pp. 252-253.

      All that part of the Chickasaw bordering on the Tombigbee river was called Monroe, and February 9, 1836, Itawamba was formed out of that territory and organized into a county, embracing about half of what is now Lee county, and part of Prentiss and Tishomingo counties.

      The town of Fulton, the county seat, situated on the east bank of the Tombigbee, was laid off in 1836, and Charles Warren was elected the first sheriff; Louis Gideon, probate clerk; C. H. Ritchie, probate judge; R. O. Beene, circuit clerk. The first board of supervisors met in September, 1836; J. S. Bourland was elected president. The other members were A. G. Lane, John Beene, S. S. Sperman and E. Allen.

      It is possible that the first white man to visit and settle in this section was Isaac Edwards in 1827. He was soon followed by J. S. Bourland, Everett Sheffield, John and Alfred Dulaney, M. Harrison, Reuben Wiygul, H. Jamison, >>>>Holland Lindsey<<<<, Jacob Green, Dorn Patton, Charles Warren, >>>>Josiah Lindsey<<<<, E. G. Thomas, Samuel Bell, Ed. Lesley, all now dead. J. Robins and M. C. Cummings, still living, were among the first settlers in 1836. The land sales took place at Pontotoc and the county rapidly settled up.

      The Tombigbee river runs through the county from north to south, and numerous crreeks afford fine water power. There are several earthenware factories and some wool carding mills in the county. The river furnishes transportation during part of the year. Much of county is finely timbered. Some timber is being rafted out by the river. The principal varieties growing here are the oaks, pine, hickory, maple, beech, walnut, gum and cypress. This is a hilly county, with fertile valleys, and the chief products are corn, cotton, fruits of all kinds, oats and some wheat. The county abounds in good water from never-failing springs. Many fine streams run into the Tombigbee in this county.
