Karen, thank you so much!I really appreciate it.Do you by any chance have access to the 1860 Yalobusha County, Mississippi census?I am trying to connect my John R. Broom to Henry H. Broom.Henry was married to Dorothy Langham in 1867, and he is listed at another site as the father of John R., so with John being born in 1862, he must have been married previously, I'm thinking.
Joan also responded to my post and listed the following in the 1880 Yalobusha Co., Ms census records....
Gideon T. HERVEY Self W Male W 70 NC Farmer NC NC
Mattie HERVEY Dau S Female W 20 MS Keeps House NC NC
John BROOM Cousin S Male W 18 MS Works On Farm NC NC
Fannie WINTERS Other W Female B 30 MS Works On Farm MS MS
Hilliard AVANT Other S Male B 35 NC Works On Farm NC NC
I'm pretty certain that this is my John R. Broom according to the info in her post.
I really appreciate your help...thanks so much.
