I am researching the Slaven's of Pike County, Mississippi.
My brick wall is John H. Slaven, my grandfather. Born 1820 to
1840 in Louisiana. He married Talitha Strickland Born 26 July,
1844 in Pike County Mississippi. I have read a book,"The History
of Mississippi", that has a statement that John H. Slaven,
served in the Dalhgreen Rifle Brigade and was wounded in the
Battle of Shiloh Tenn. This and where he is buried, along with one other source of info. is all that I have on him. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am also researching Welch, Helton, Prescott, Williams,
Oliphant, and Easley.
