I am a great-grand-daughter of T.A. Ray and Mary Jane Alderman (1845-1917) of Midway Community in Leake Co., MS.Mary Jane died in 1917 with many children.Her parents were: Daniel (b. 1814) and Sarah F. (1928).
Daniel and Sarah Alderman's children as listed on the 1860 census, were: Catharine O. (1842) Joseph J. (1843) Mary Jane (my ancestor) Philby E. (1848) William D.W. (1849) Jensey E. (1852) John E. (1855) Daniel M. (1856) Marshal (18590
Family stories say that T.A. Ray and Mary Jane's brother (don't know which one) founded Midway Baptist Church in Leake Co.However, the cemetery doesn't have any Alderman's buried in it, so I suspect they buried at another cemetery and/or moved from Leake Co. in the 1930s when the paper companies bought much of the farm land.
