ANDERSON, COOPER, WOODS posted by Leila MAYBERRY Email:
lbmaybe@mindspring.com on Tuesday, August 4, 1998

     I'm researching the family of Cornelius COOPER and his wife, Jane WOODS COOPER.
     Jane WOODS was born in Maryland and Cornelius COOPER was born 1774 in Granville
     co, NC. They married there in 1796. They then moved to Franklin county Georgia and
     then were in St. Tammany parish by 1811. Both their wills are recorded there in 1850s.
     Some of their children remained in La. while others moved to Texas and their son, James
     Cooper, and his wife, Sarah, moved to Hancock co, Ms. ( the portion that is now P.R.
     co.)before 1850. Sarah may be a daughter of Thomas or Abraham ANDERSON.
     Cornelius COOPER owned land in St. Tammany and Washington parishes. James and
     Sarah were living on this land in Washington co in 1830. I am particularly interested in
     verifying whether or not Cornelius COOPER was Indian. Thank you, Leila Mayberry

     Seeking help to identify a group of people who moved with Alexander GILLESPIE in
     1812/1813 from Jackson Co., GA to the Washington Par., LA area. Background: Alex.
     GILLESPIE & Sarah (his wife) sold land in Jackson Co., GA in Nov 1811. In Nov 1819
     he claimed a section of land in St. Tammany Par., LA "on which he now resides as an
     actual settler" since 1813. He was awarded this land in Jul 1824: Cert. #344; Sec. 43,
     Twp 2 S, Rng 9 E. Alexander appears on the 1820 census of Washington Par., LA as
     Elick GILASPY. He seems to have sold the land and moved to Copiah Co., MS in Nov
     1824. In 1839, Alexander GILLESPIE died in Copiah Co., Ms (at the age of 96) at the
     home of Mrs. Elizabeth RUSSELL. Other families with whom Alexander was associated in
     Copiah Co., MS were MILLER's, SHAMBERGER's & MOORE's. Some or all were in

CRUMP, RICHARDSON posted by Email: Casper3050@aol.com on Wednesday, October
14, 1998

     I am looking for info on Alfred RICHARDSON. He was born somewhere in La in 1815.
     He married Selena CRUMP and they moved to Mississippi. I have him in the 1840 Copiah
     Co. MS Census. And I also found him in the 1850 and 1860 Censuses of Washington
     Parish LA. I know they still lived there in 1870( I have this census). They had 10 children.
     They are Sylvester, Hardy, Leander, Emily, Gabraellen, Palatiah, Samuel, Eugene, William,
     and Angeline. Sylvester is my line. Anyway, I was hoping to find out who Alfred's parents
     were. He has a son named Hardy, so I thought maybe he would somehow be kin to the
     Hardy RICHARDSON in the Washington Parish book. I found where Alfred was
     mentined several times in the History book. I am not absolutely positive that they are from
     Washington Parish, but I was hoping to find that they moved there to be near family. I don't
     know dates of death or where they are buried. Any info you could give me would be really
     appreciated. I was hoping maybe you had run across them in your research. Thanks. Hope
     to hear from you soon. Memry

     My name is Debby WEST KING - I was born in Bogalusa in 1944 at Desporte Clinic.
     My families are the WEST and SHOWS. My father was Woodrow Thomas WEST and
     my mother, Ethel SHOWS WEST. My grandparents were Stephen and Rennie
     NICHOLSON WEST and James Aldine and Beatrice CHANDLER SHOWS. I know
     there is a wealth of information particularly on my SHOWS family as both my grandparents
     were active in the Masonic Lodge and Eastern Star. All are buried at the Ponemah
     cemetary. I have done extensive research on both lines and have quite a bit of information
     for any one connected. I would appreciate any old photographs of my family that may be
     available: two that come to mind: My grandmother was in a commerical for I believe
     Breland's feed store on Columbia road - they used to run that film as a commercial in both
     of the movie theaters there - I would give most anything to have a copy of that - it was
     probably 1953 era. Also my father was the butcher at numerous grocery stores there and
     was in the newspaper when National Food Store opened up close to the hospital where
     Magic City Motors was. My SHOWS grandparents at one time stayed or worked at the
     old Redwood Hotel - I have nothing other than my memory of their stories. I would LOVE
     to have a picture of the old Redwood hotel..if there are any records of the railroad and
     lumber company I would love to know how to contact the people who have this
     information. I have pictures of what I believe to be my grandfather in his early years, but I
     can't prove it. Any help would be GREATLY Appreicated! Thanks, Debby
