Hi Jeanne! My name is Tisha Makamson and I was on a search trying to find some background on the "Makamson" genealogy and only came across "Makemson" where I saw your message. I noticed where you said your great-grandfather was from Mississippi and saw this as a coincidence since my family and I are from Mississippi. My father is Thomas Larry Makamson born to my grandfather Thomas Makamson in Greenwood, Mississippi. There may be some connection, I may can help. This is just something I am beginning to look into. Please contact me at e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you want any further information.
