Re: DENNIS MASSEY b. 1868 or 1869 AL,MS,TX
This is probably your Dennis
1880 TX Waco p 156a McLaurens
Dennis Massey 23 AL TN AL
Elizabeth P 30 MS MS SC
James 1 son TX AL MS
He is in the same county as Wm Strickland b MS, his presumed father-in-law. Also there are GW Bilbo b MS, and B Woodward who has children b MS.
My family stories say the Stricklands left Jasper county MS about 1870 and went to Conroe TX with Bilbos and others. It is also said that Pricilla Strickland married Dennis Massey, and had a son Green "married Sam Heaths daughter," and that Dennis may have married her sister Nelly also, and had a daughter Belle who lived in Waco TX. Their sister Nancy is supposed to have married Dempsey Massey. Some of them returned to MS.
