Re: Warbington / 1836 / Lauderdale Co., Ms
Household 7: L. was actually Samuel B. Warbington, Sr. and Martha M. was his wife, Martha Melissa (Taylor) Warbington. "A. D." was their son Alfred Berrien Warbington. The "Berien Warbington" listed in "L. & Martha's Warbington's" was not a Warbington, he was actually Martha's nephew, Berien Taylor. Several other of Martha's Taylor neices and nephews were listed in their household as Warbington's instead of Taylors!
Household 12-13: This was the John M. Warbington family who migrated to Calhoun Co., MS and on into Arkansas. His father was William Warbington, brother of Jacob B. Warbington, Sr.
Household 25: This is the Jacob B. Warbington, Jr. household.
Household 32: This is the Horatio B. Warbington, Sr. family. Horatio was my husband's great-grandfather. (Since my husband's father, Elmer Samuel Warbington, outlived 3 wives, and his last was a good 20 years his junior, that put my husband into an "earlier generation" than he normally would have been---i.e.-- Elmer was 60 years old when my late husband, Clyde Houston Warbington, was born in 1936.)
Horatio died about the end of the Civil War, and his widow, Stacy, removed to Alabama with her children, many of whom came back into Mississippi and on into Louisiana. The eldest son, William V. Warbington, followed his uncle, William B. Warbington, Sr., to Texas, then came back to Alabama after his first wife died. William V. married again there and most of his descendants remained in Alabama.
Elmer Samuel Warbington took his families from Sumter Co., AL to Meridian, Lauderdale Co., MS, to around Rayville, Louisiana, back to Copiah Co., MS, and finally to Chicot Co., AR (where his last 2 children were born). About a year after his 3rd wife's death in 1937, when it was discovered his age and health rendered him able to properly care for them, all of her children were parceled out to relatives. From then on Elmer lived back and forth between two of his older daughters (one from wife #1 and one from wife #2) in Texas and Mississippi before he died in Jim Hogg Co., TX. All of Elmer's children are gone now except for Beulah, the only daughter by wife #3. But she has Alzheimer's.
