Hello Sally,
Thank you very much for responding to my post. You are right this is very interesting. I forgot there were people against slavery. Yes, I have noticed Macon is not far from Tupelo, MS. I did find some information about a J. D. Feemster from Noxubee County, Ms that fought in the Civil War and died. His name is on a monument in Macon. I also found a J. R. Feemster on the 1840 census with a wife and two children. I don't know how my grandfather, Charle Feemster got his name. There many African American Feemsters in Macon, Shuqualak, MS and St. Louis, MO. I don't know them, because of the seperation of my grandparents before my birth. My grandmother never kept in touch with that side of the family after moving to St. Louis with her children.
