Re: Mangrum family
Matthew, I have information on the Mangrums who lived inAttala County, MS and then moved to Craighead County, AR, in the early 1900s.The Arkansas Mangrums were cousins to Gallaway D. Mangrum (abt 1853-????).
Gallaway's father was Perry A. Mangrum (abt 1828-1863); his father was Zachariah Mangrum (abt 1780-aft 1850); and Zachariah's parents were Samuel Mangrum (May 12, 1756-???) and Rebecca Cotton (March 29, 1756-???).My research leads me to believe Samuel Mangrum was the brother of Henry Mangrum/Mangum (b. Oct 17, 1749-Oct 4, 1826...my ancestor), Isle of Wight, VA.
Perry Mangrum's son, Oliver Marshall Mangrum, who also lived in Attala Co, MS, had sons who moved to AR.
