Gay, I just found your reply to my inquiry....only 2 years late.My parents were Guy T. Pope, Jr. and Patricia E Tassin (Poche') - there was a legal adoption and name change but Tassin is her birth parent.
Guy T. Pope Jr was born in Jackson, Tenn son of Guy T. Pope Sr, of Monroe Co Ms and Lorraine Cheevers of New Orleans.Guy T. Pope Sr, was the son of William Whitfield Pope and Sally Octavia Jones (both of Monroe Co, MS)
William Whitfied Pope was the son of a Thomas Pope(I believe) and Elendor Studdard.This is the part of the family I'm really interested in.
Sally O. Jones was the daughter of Caleb M. Jones and Narcissa Beeks.
We grew up in New Orleans and Brownsville, Tx.
Any information or contacts, especially the Monroe County Popes would be gratefully appreciated Regards Brian Guy Pope
