About Our Family Research
Having retired from law enforcement, I finally decided it was time to try and trace the Cloninger History. Having a desire to get into the Sons of Confederate Veterans was the driving force behind the search, but it has been taken over with the complexness of this thing called a "Family Tree".
I have learned so much but there is so much out there I still want to know. For example, the 1850 and 1860 census records record The Cloninger's in Yalobusha County, MS but they are gone in the 1870 census! Other information say they are still in the Yalobusha or Tallahatchie counties. Why don't show up?
Hopefully, putting this on line will allow others to read and maybe be helped or help me in filling in some gaps.
