I'm trying to learn more about Lawrence SCARBOROUGH and his families. Lawrence SCARBOROUGH and his first wife, Agnes STRINGER arrived in Jefferson County around 1809. Lawrence probably married his second wife, Elizabeth GIVEN, in Jefferson County around 1811. Possible children of the first marriage were Allen, Mary, Lawrence, Nancy Ann, Alice, Asa, Zilla Ann, Silas, Elizabeth, and John. Children from the second marriage may include Martha, Lydia Agnes, and Jackson. Lawrence, his second wife, and some of his children moved on to Union County, Arkansas by 1825, but some grown children remained in Mississippi. I'm also trying to learn more about Silas SCARBOROUGH, son of Lawrence SCARBOROUGH. Silas was born in GA around 1805. He married Harriett CONNELL in Jefferson County in 1824. By 1825 the family had moved to Union County, Arkansas.

Need help with PUTNAM T. WILLIAMS who married JUDITH VIRGINIA MARKHAM 1829 in Fayette, Jefferson Co., MS Where did he come from? I have searched many Jefferson Co., MS records but find no clues to Putnam T. William's ancestry. Family records state that he came from Vermont or Rhode Island. He was in Putnam Co., GA in 1820. Records suggest that he was well educated, a lawyer, appointed Treasurer of Jefferson Co., MS c. 1826. Putnam T. Williams died in 1835, 'about age 30' and the MS Bar Association in Jackson, MS wore black and closed down for the day to attend his funeral. He left a sizeable estate and two orphan children. Interesting man--but, who is he? Any ideas?? Thanks, Pam.
