We, part of the Mississippi Feemsters, had a family reunion at Thanksgiving in Tupelo, Ms.We are the descendants of Dr. W.O. Feemster and Margaret Foster who had three sons and six daughters. One of my cousins has an original copy of the book,"That Moving Clan." I believe she got it many years ago when Roy Feemster and his wife came through Tupelo researching the family. As far as we know, I am the only one who still has the Feemster name from our side of the Feemsters in Mississippi. The men have died and all had daughters. I no longer live in Tupelo, but we have a wonderful history. My grandfather, Dr. L.C. Feemster, was the driving force behind the hospital there which is now the largest rural hospital in the United States. His brother, Dr. M.B. Feemster, was so beloved in Moscow, TN that a bridge was named for him. Their sisters married well - the State Superintendent of Education, Federal judge, etc.Unfortunately, the Feemster name from our branch will disappear when I die.
