When she was an elderly woman, Mary Thomas Tooten / Tuten was living with her daughter Rosa and her husband Dave Evans.This was in Lee County, Mississippi (formerly Itawamba County).This picture of the family must have been taken from about 1881 to 1885, since the two twins shown at the bottom were born in 1877.Mary Thomas Tooten was born in 1804 (approx.) in Tennessee and married Zach about 1820.She died in late 1886.She and Zach are buried in the Union Methodist Cemetery in Lee County, Mississippi.
This pic would be of interest to many of her descendants. She had 12 children:
1. unknown 2. unknown 3. Telitha Caroline Tooten md. Thomas Brown Parker 4. Gillie Delila Tooten md. Hiram Jackson Webb 5. Sarah Tooten md. Jackson Cockeral (know nothing else about these - email me if you do!!) 6. Dicey Tooten md. Granville Cockeral (ditto for this one!) 7. William Calvin Tooten md. Parthenia R. Perkinson 8. Mary Tooten b. 1833 ??? 9. Zacheriah Tooten (III ?) b. 1838 ??? 10. Rosa Francis Tooten md. Dave Evans (my line) 11. Elias Tooten b. 1841 ???? 12. Julia D. Tooten md. Hiram Noah Evans
