We are researching these African American STRINGFELLOWs that seem to be connected with Mastin STRINGFELLOW of Tippah CO, MS. We had already had Pickens STRINGFELLOW in 1900 & 1910.

We have discovered the following data:
1880 Census, Franks Township, St Francis CO, Arkansas ED 262, pg 10
STRINGFELLOW, L. D. M(mulatto) M(male) 34 SC SC SC Laura wife B F 24 TN not known not known Pick son B M 8 MS SC TN Vian dau B F 7 MS SC TN Ivy son B M 5 MS SC TN Harris, Rans nephew B M 11 MS GA SC
further down the page:

So I checked MS 1870. Both Mose Dickerson and L. D. Stringfellow were there in Tippah Co.
1870 Tippah Co, Range three Township five Stringfellow, L.D. 25 Male Black Farmer, SC Lize 5? F B Keeping house
1870 Tippah Co, Range three Township five Dickerson, Mose 26 M B Farmer MS Vinna 24 F B keeping house MS Frank 3 M B MS Watin?/Warin? 2 M B MS Sus?? 1 M B MS
In the 1860 slave census for Tippah Co, MS Mastin Stringfellow is listed with only these 4 slaves: 1 65 M B 1 45 F B 1 14 F B 1 12 F B
If these are Eliza and LD and Vinna, the ages are a pretty good match, but the 14 year old should be Male, not female. Is anyone else working on descendants of these families? We would greatly appreciate any suggestions or leads.
