Hi Joan: Wow! A photo of Clementine and William Carithers? Would it be possible to obtain a copy of those photos? Could you email them to me? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, I have info on the Carrolls and need info on the Carithers!
My line is John Jackson Brown married Roxie M. Carithers, 1889 MS. She was daughter of William H. Carithers and Clementine Carroll. Roxie b. Oct 04, 1867. Roxie was 1/4 Choctaw and her mother Clementine was 1/2. That means one of Clementine's parents was full Choctaw but not sure which one or what? William Carithers b. abt. 1839 in MS and I think his father was James Carithers b. abt. 1805 in York, SC. His mother was Elizabeth b. abt. 1820 in TN. My G GF John Brown built a house for them north of his farm about 1900 in Carroll Co., MS.
Clementine was b. June 1851 in Winona, Carroll Co., MS. Her father was Phillip Carroll b. abt 1805 in NC. His wife was Percilla Slaughter b. abt 1822 in NC.
Siblings: John Carroll b. Abt. 1846 Josiah Issah Carroll b. abt 1847 Julia Carroll b. abt 1853 Ella Carroll b. February 21, 1859 Anne Carroll b. Abt. 1857
I have not determined who Phillips parents were as yet.
Percilla's parents were: Daniel McDaniel Slaughter b. July 23, 1788 Blackjack TWP, Richmond, NC d. Dec 04, 1884 Goshen, Washington Co.,AR
His wife: Sarah Thomas b. July 23,1793 Richmond, NC D. Dec 19, 1886 Goshen, Washington Co.,AR
I have not found other clildren yet. This is as far as I go on this line. If you have additional info on either line I would be grateful to have it.
Now, I saw a photo of William H. Carithers in his CSA uniform in 1977 at J. B. Browns farmhouse in Carroll Co., MS. J. B. was the son of John Brown and Roxie Carithers. I have not located that photo as yet but am looking and talking to his descendants.
J.B.'s oldest son Elgin is deceased and his wife told me she knew nothing of the photo or bible. Their son Pete said he would look for both. The other son John J. told me he remembers the photo and bible and is sure it went to Elgin so I may have a catch 22 on this.
William H. Carithers served in the 29th MS Inf Co A and G and is buried at Hickory Grove cemetery in Carroll co., MS north of Carrollton. I have not located the cemetery for Clementine or any others from these lines.
Being Clementine was 1/2 choctaw and both of her parents were from NC I must assume that Phillip may have had a first wife who was Choctaw as thats the only way this makes sense! I do not believe there were choctaws in NC but only in the MS area of orginal choctaw lands. Hopefully, you are someone can provide additional info on this.
I have copies of the census on most of the above if you need them. Please contact me for further discussion and exchange of info. I surely would want copies of those photos. If you cannot email them I will be glad to pay for them by snail mail. Thanks so much Norm
