My family is being traced back to about 1825-until the end of slavery in 1861.
My ggGrandfather Richard Wortham born between 1850-1860 (he lived pass slavery and got married and started a family in Denmark, Ms.)
His father (we don't have his name yet)my gggGrandfather born bet 1825-1835. He was said to have lived in the Tula, De Lay, Denmak or Oxford, Ms. area on a plantation.
All my great Aunts and Uncles were born in Oxford, Ms.
But later some moved back to Denmark, Ms. and some moved to Calhoun City, Ms.
So Lafayette County, Ms. is my hot spot.
I just need to find the plantation they came from.
