Since none of my families showed up in this book I just purchased, I hope this helps some of my Yielding family members, there may even be a connection I don't know about yet. I have Hall & Waddell families in this Co. This is from Pontotoc Co,MS which is in the Northeastern part of MS. Pontotoc Co.MS History and Families; Pontotoc Co. Historical Society, 1999, Rose Publishing Co. Humboldt, TN. p.462Eugene Scott and Lettie Ann Yielding Watkins family. Eugene Scott Watkins born 1/20/1888 (Carolina's) married Lettie Ann Yielding on 12/15/1907, in Hackleburg,AL. Lettie Ann born 10/22/1890, daughter of Woodville, born 8/3/1865 and Margaret Kennedy Yielding,born 1/10/1862, granddaughter of James and Mary Forman Yielding and John and Louise Kennedy. Lettie had seven children; Effie, Gladys, Roy,Floyd,Willie,Norma in Alabama. In 1919 they moved to the Black Zion Community of Pontotoc Co.; eight other children born; Mary, Pauline, Edward, Lorise, James Leighton, Mattie M., Billy, born in Pontotoc. This article is too lengthy to post. I also found Civil War letters from a Lettie to her husband posted in a Blount Co. AL Historical book and have a copy of that. I don't know if it is the same Lettie.My Yielding (Tolitha Webb) was in Benton Co. in 1880 with some of her children (Benton is to the north of Pontotoc). John Jasper Yielding I suspect went to Lonoke and Prairie Co.AR.
