@NI17141@ NOTEIGI Family Group Record_25 refers to a William Atkinson with the same birth place born about 1803. IGI Family Group Record_13 gives the birth date about 1796. The 7 year discrepancy in the birth dates between the birth dates is disturbing. Also disturbing is that the 1803 date is out of sequence with the children's birth dates in IGI Family Group Record_13. SAB Web Pages give the birth date as 1803.
Speaking for the identification is that William Atkinson Jr (17160) locates in the same MS County (Choctaw) as his brother John (17148 ).
Also speaking for the identification is that William's brother Elias (17158) names his first child 'Mississippi' (17189)
Mary Atkinson Letter 2 says:
"I talked with the Atkinsons in Pike Co -- James' descendants and corresponded with the Houston Co. Texas descendants of William and Elias.".
Mary Atkinson Letter 8 says after leaving NC "went first to Bienville LA and then to TX."
Text: I do know that James, William, Henry, John,Benjamin and Elias went to Hinds Co. Ms in 1830 partly because a gi;rl ;had brought charges of Bastardy against John and Elias.in 1829. The court book didn't say how Celia settled the charge. John later went back to Robeson Co and married Susanna Purvis there and had 2 children there before going to Choctaw Co.Ms. Celia was in Montgomery Co census of 1840 and died before 1850. James went to Pike Co and Marion Co Ms. William went first to Bienville, Louisana and then to Texas. Elias went to Texas. I think Benjamin Atkinson who married Ann Lupo was the Benjamin in Cumberland Co., NC a very few miles from Lumberton in Robeson Co. NC. This is not our Benjamin but could be related. Mary.

Note: This family tree includes information gathered on the Atkinson/Carroll/Stephens family members from the Trinity, Texas area of east Texas. The sources are from Safronia (Atkinson)Barnett, Hubert Atkinson, Omaha (Stephens) Rhodes, and Richard Atkinson. I started the research and found out Hubert had already done quite a bit, then I tried to continue where he left off. Then I got information from Omaha, and Ricky added more. I started in 2001 after my husband passed away in 2000, and now it is 2003 and I want to continue with it. If anyone has any information to add, please send it to me, at my e-mail email@example.com

James Atkinson in Marion Co MS did indeed come from Robeson Co but is not the Atkinson family you seek. His father is William Atkinson md Celia ? and brothers John, Benjamin, Elisha, Henry,William who all did go to MS. I looked in my Nash Co records and did not find Susanna. My John married Susanna Purvis d/o Henry Purvis in Robeson Co but I have all their children, all of William, all of Elisha and James family. They were born 1793 thu 1816. William Sr had 2 brothers and a sister. Joseph who md Elizabeth Barnes, John and Lucy who married James Barnes. Their mother is Mary ? who 2nd married John Bell. I have quite a few Atkinsons in Nash Co if you want me to send them. Lets keep in touch as those Robeson families are very familar.

Text: I spent some time last week in the Columbus library and found a few
items related to Montgomery County history.
The tax rolls of Choctaw County in 1846 (long before Montgomery
County was formed out of it) showed a James Gray and a Thomas Gray, but
when 1849 came around they were listed as James Grey and Thomas Grey. I
don't know whether they could have been related to our Great Grandmother
Margaret Grey Atkinson or not.
Among the volunteers for the Mexican-American War from Choctaw
County were a Pinkney G. Adkinson and a William Gray. They were
assigned to Company D of the 1st Mississippi Regiment.
In the 1850 Federal Census of the Western District of Choctaw
County the following Gray family was listed:
William, age 50
Katherine, age 49
John A., age 25
James L., age 23
Gardner D., age 19
Jabez, age 17
*Elizabeth, age 12
Sarah, age 11
Robertson, age 10
Richard, age 7
Katherine V., age 4
Katherine is the only one listed as having been born in
Mississippi. All the rest of the family was born in Georgia.
In the same census, an Atkinson family was listed as follows:
John, age 39, a farmer with real estate valued at $400
Susannah, age 36
*Giles, age 14
Charity, age 12
Michael, age 11
Griffin, age 9
Mary F., age 7
Wilson, age 4
Michael was the first to be born in Mississippi.
The family before him had all been born in North Carolina.
There was another Atkinson family headed by
John J., age 37, a farmer with real estate valued at $700.
Born in North Carolina.
Moisy, age 24, born in Mississippi (as were her children)
Mary, age 6
William C., age 3
Reeves N., age 1
Then listed separately were a Benjamin Atkinson, age 50, a
carpenter born in North Carolina
and a woman named Elender Atkinson, age 41, born in South
Carolina. There is nothing to indicate that they were related.
There was another Gray family with
Thomas, age 30, with real estate valued at $800, born in
Missouri, age 23, also born in Mississippi
Martha, age 3, born in Mississippi
The 1850 slave census of that same area listed a John Atkinson with
1 slave and William Gray with 7.
The county tax list in 1835 had a William Atkinson and a John
Atkinson. The 1844 list had John Atkinson and John J. Atkinson.
Two observations: (1) Giles Atkinson and the above listed Margaret Gray
would have reached at the same time the proper ages to marry.
(2) Most families were sorely in need of some form of

Text: I: sent most of the material to the IGI and Family Search. I currently work in the Family History Library in Pahrump, Nevada which is 50 miles west of Las Vegas. I get to help others learn to build their family trees. I have been reading deeds from Southampton Co Va trying to Identify Joseph, William, John, and Lucy's father. They lived in the vicinity of Blackwater Swamp which was first in Isle of Wight Co and then when the county split it was in Southampton Co. There were 5 Atkinsons emigrated to Virginia from England between 1744 and 1799. I am guessing our line is Thomas who came in 1744, then Thomas his son, but he had so many children in the area, that I can eliminate some, but not enough to matter.. One line is in the DAR The records of early Isle of Wight and Southampton Co are so dim and my eyesight is getting pretty bad so I hope I can prove just who was the relative. The Houston Co. Texas Atkinsons from William and Elias ( sons of William, and brothers of our John) have a family reunion each summer and invite all Atkinsons. My husband has been too ill or not physically able to attend. If you want an address to write to, I will be glad to send it to you. Elias built barges during the Civil War for the Confederacy. He was in Texas at the time. I will keep sending you any thing new that I find. Mary

Text: Your e mails came thru clear and complete. I see a lot of your facts came from the IGI. Are you a member of the LDS Church? Most of m y information came from census' , Marriage records, cemetary records, wills, probate and deeds. The first few years I neglected to pput source and now I am going back thru notes and adding the information. Nancy, my daughter has been too busy canning peaches and apples to send me the gedcoms so I am trying to send you info. Let me know if it comes thru okay. Incidentally, we visited Lodi, Ms. and were a little astonished. It was a general store that had the Post Office in part of it. It was about 20 x 30 with a wood stove in the center. It had feed for animals in one section with halters, saddles, etc. It had groceries. a cracker and pickle barrel, a round of cheese. It had a round table with 2 men playing checkers. It had been built of green (not dried) lumber and as the 12 inch boards shrank or dried out it left cracks in the floor. It had material for sewing, buttons, lace, calico, etc. It had beer, pop, etc. It had guns, both hand and rifle. The owner was very informative about the area and friendly.
Giles was also called Silas, maybe only by John as he wrote in a letter to his grandson that Silas had visited him, and still wanted to be called Giles instead of Silas.
I may not be adding much to your Atkinsons. Mary Francis married Jesse Morman and was in 1880 census in Sumner Co. Ms with several children. Jesse lived with his parents in Choctaw Co in 1850 census. Wilson had one boy that I know of==Wilson Jr.. I figured John A had died before The second John was born.
I talked with the Atkinsons in Pike Co -- James' descendants and corresponded with the Houston Co. Texas descendants of William and Elias. Benjamin was in the 1860 census living with the Townsends and no trace of him after that. Ms. Archives at Jackson had a folder of Giles with nothing in it but his Confederate Army Co. Thanks so much. Mary . PS. It was interesting that your Mary Alice Atkinson was born in Sep 1927 and That this Mary Alice Atkinson was born a couple of weeks later also Sep 1927.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with William by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with William:
