Found the following posted on a June 2000 Ancestry message board by Sandi Craighead: I am researching a few families from Brandon and Cato areas of Rankin County, MS: Benjamin and Elizabeth HINES' son, William B. Hines, married Lucy Ann GATES in 1859. I know Lucy had a brother named John Gates, but I need to know who were their parents? William and Lucy's daughter, Willie Bell HINES, married Alonzo ALLEN, the son of Charles C. and Martha (RUSSELL) ALLEN in 1887 in Rankin Cty. Who were Martha RUSSELL's parents and siblings? What happened to Alonzo ALLEN's siblings: Henry, Malissa, Albert, John, and Charles? What happened to Willie Bell HINES' siblings: Nellie E., Uriah, Nancy, Bascomb, Cassius, and Ella? Alonzo and Willie Bell Allen had a son named Henry Virgil Allen, but became divorced when he was a young child. Do any of these names sound familiar? Does anyone know what happened to Alonzo, Willie Bell, and Henry Virgil Allen? Does anyone know of any present day descendants of these ALLEN and HINES families from Rankin County? Whatever info you supply is much appreciated. [7]
