Oh boy! does this open another can of worms?? or rather ancestors....I also am working on the White's and did have a Juno email address at that time...No more though... Mary Katherine walls parents were James or Andrew and Kate Liles Walls....found them in the Itawamba census's and this was where Steve and Mary k. were marriedin 1858,,,,but don't recognize the ones you mentioned but possibly wouldtie in...not done a lot of research any further back....Will be back intouch here's the next generation back on the Young's and where we become kin.....Got lot's of info on the Whites....9 viii George Frank YOUNG was born in 1832, and married A.M. Sally DEMENT.
Peggy Young firstname.lastname@example.org - Peggy has written a book on "Descendants of Stephen W. Young".
I'm sending the next generationback this time....this is John H. (Henry) Young Parents and siblings asI have them....the next back generation is where my family comes in and supposedly goes back to the "lost the horn"...as far as documentation on that?well "I" actually don't have it.... The information on Stephen Young is correct but as far as "HIS" parents, I am still working on....and I believe everyone else should be also....I know he was born in AL....and that Peter Youngwas most likely his father (documentation being census records in AL)....but I just can't "confirm" the fact on his and Anderson Hunt's mother..."Lost the Horn". There are others (Patricia Young Henry, Kay Young Griffin, Callie Young) who have researched this much more than I have, back when therewere no computers??....This is one of the reasons my book is entitled "Steven Winchester Young Descendants" I am sure of this from my own research. Patricia Young's "Young History Book" covers from Steve and Anderson Hunt on back..... as I said....covered below is John H.'s parents...this I am sure of...two more things....this Anderson Hunt Young is Stephen (Steven)s' Brother....for sure, for sure (Will explain "why" I know for sure later) and the stories of these families are well covered in the Pontotoc County History bookand the Chickasaw County History, which may be purchased from their localhistorical societies. ....for now just this generation....will send thenext generation back when you have time to absorb all this....looking forwardto your reply....Children:

Dear Janell, (Mama spells her name Gunelle.)
My husband and I did go to the Hartwell Tutor Cemetery Asso. meeting on the 3rd sunday. They met at 2 PM. We were late. I had been there when my grandmother died in 33, in74 when Papa White was buried and ten years ago with Daddy. I hadmade myself some directions so I could return someday.
Guess what? The directions were somewhat and they had changed the name of the County Road 181 to Stewart loop. You go south on Hwy. 9 just past Randolph. The road in on the left. It is the third cemetery on the right. It has the name over the arch. It is fenced, very well dept. The Fund has man to not only cut the grass but keep the graves looking nice. Oh, yes we wnet back to Ponotoc to the Fire Station for help. The fireman on Duty was very nice, looking thru several maps till we found what we needed.
Donations can be made to the: THE HARTWELL TUTOR CEMETERY FUND FIRST NATIONAL BANK 19 SOUTH MAIN STREET PONTOTOC, MS. 38863 1-601-489-1631
A Confederate Memorial ANDERSON H. YOUNG, CO. E, 26th MS. Inf, 1823-1895 a few weeks ago and put up a new marker. Could that be a distant relative?
I found baby markers: Leonis--J.M. & M.J. Mask--Oct 1, 1903 died Sept 1, 1904 One that was hard to read Lois orLous Avis Nov. 4, 1905 - March 5, 1918 -- J.M. & M.J. Mask (Hard toread -- I fell sure these names are incorrect)
One was near these that said Audis 12-27-17- 6-21-18
I am sorry I did not take more time. There were only two people there when finally found it. One left. She was Peggy Young -- 377 Cooke Rd., Pontotoc. She is into tracing relatives and can be reached (wrong email format) Peggy Young@Juno.Com. If that helps. The other was the caretaker and he was going to take us to the man to take our donation to the Fund.
A group of ladies are putting together a book of all the cemeteries in Pontotoc County. I would like to know where Papa Whites' parents are buried.
We also found the graves of Eliza mitchel Young, John H. Young, their daughter Mary A. young, March 14, 1880 - July 24, 1889 who was killed by a stray bullet, brother playing with a gun. Ada Josephine Young White - Warren Allen White and their daughter Edgie A.White, 2-28-1906 - August 4, 1907.
All in all it was an interesting afternoon. Hope this has not bored you.
Maybe our paths will cross again someday. I have fond memories of you and your family and visits in your home when I was a child.
Love, Margie Harrison

Hi Joe, Thanks for sending me the address to your website. I also got most of my Mask info from J.D.Means. I have wondered if Martha Jane Young, Moody's wifehad a sister named Tempie? Tempie Young married William Lidge Lantrip. They are both buried in Collums Cemetery, Calhoun County, MS. William "Lidge"Lantrip was a brother to my great grandmother, Vester "Bess" Lantrip, whomarried Griffen Bryant Mask. Tempie and Lidge Lantrip had a son namedArlis Lantrip who died young in 1904 and is buried in Tutor Hartwell Cemeteryin the same plot with Moody & Martha Jane's children that died young. My grandfather, Arlis, son of G.Bryant and Bess is undoubtedly named afterhim. I know this is somewhat confusing, but this is why I thoughtMartha Jane and Tempie may have been sisters. I did not see anythingon Tempie Young on your website, so I was wondering if you have tried tofind anything on her. If you find out I'd love to know! Did J.D.tell you the story about the hanging of Slyvester's uncle, Pleasant MosesMask?
Information from Peggy Young has Tempiemarrying Henry Madison Lantrip.
Mattie and Odis grew up on large farms owned by each of their parents next door to each other in Quitman County. The Mask's lost their farm during the depression after choosing to pay off the sharecroppers instead of the mortgage. The Ard's later sold their farm in about 1956 or so. The Masks were told during the depression that their children could get "help" from the government due to their Native American blood. Supposedly the courthouse with the records burned down and help was never received. According to a Mask relative, it was the Ard's or actually the Walls who had more Indian blood.Children:
