The Jesse R. Philpot family is listed on the 1850 Pontotoc, MS census near a bunch of Johnsons and Griffins.See http:/ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/ms/pontotoc/census/1850/pg0077b.txt
If anyone knows about this Philpot family, especially a Jess Philpot that may have known or been related to a James Calvin Johnson, please contact me.There was an H.V. Philpot who was a Meth. preacher at Chappell Hill Meth. Church in Austin's Colonoy froj 1862-1864 also I was interested to see an earlier message about a Reuben Philpot who had a son-in-law named James Johnson, anyone know about them.I am guessing that the Johnsons and Philpots were related and moved from TN, to Carroll Co., GA to Fayette Co., Al to Pontotoc, MS together.Anyone know more about this?
