My great-grandfather was one of the Joesph Twiners of Yazoo County,(he is somehow related to the present Twiners that own Twiner plumbing there now.) he then moved to Oakdale, LA in the 1890's-early 1900's, there he married Gladis Swann and they had William Swann Twiner, Malcolm Twiner and Elizabeth Twiner. Malcolm still lives in Oakdale and is a wealth of info and Elizabeth lives is Baton Rouge now (both are in thier 80's). My granfather William Swann then moved to Atlanta in 1957 with two children William Irving Twiner b.1951 d. 1995 and Susan Twiner b.1954, William Irving Twiner had two sons William Swann Twiner II,b.1974 and Bradford Irving Twiner b.1976 d.1994. I was told that one on the great uncles from Yazoo County was a minister was travel in Mississippi on horse back witnessing to towns people in the 1800's. I'm not a lot of help, but my great-uncle Malcolm Twiner in Oakdale would be.
