I noticed an Archie L. Croom b.1860 in your list of Croom children. You have him as dying in 1862. Is that a definite known death? The reason I am asking is my husband's gggrandfather was Archie L. Croom born in 1860(supposedly in TN, not certain) and died in 1932 in Elton, LA. He married Ada Birmingham in Yazoo Co.,MS Jan.10, 1888. They had Norman Birmingham Croom b.1889, Archie H. Croom b.1891, and Monte Cristo Croom, Sr. b.1895. We have been unable to find proof of his residence before he married Ada in MS. Any chance he is related to your group?
