In Reply to: Re: Musslewhite Cemetery Crisp co Ga by Jan Harris of 407


Jan...Nancy Ellafair Musselwhite, b. 1843 was Mitchell Pitts 3rd or 4th wife, and is my great great grandmother. Her children were Richard Lee, b.-----; William, b. 1874; Leonard Franklin, b. October 1878; Mary Lillar, b. 18 February 1880 or 1881(this was my grandmother's mother). We believe Thomas Musselwhite to have been Nancy's father. I have just begun to research the Musselwhite family and was surprised at the number of Musselwhites and the family's age. My cousin, Doris Burnsed has been to Crisp County to the Musselwhite Cemetary and would love to hear from you. Interestingly, prior to being married to Nancy Ellafair, Mitchell Pitts was married to a Becky Musselwhite...rumors say she and Nancy were sisters...we do not know that for a fact. It would be nice if you have additional information regarding who Nancy's father and mother were. The origins of the name Musselwhite are quite interesting...Norman...Moselle region (hence the name originally "Moselle White"...or, before that Moselle LeBlanc (in France before the family moved to England between 1053 and 1066). I have ordered a translation of The Doomsday Book by King William (the Conqueror), written in 1066, I think. Anyway, the Mosellewhites (Musselwhites) appear in the book. If you are interested, Amazon.com has the book, normally, $155.00 or so, in used paperback for as low as $18.00. I hear WE are in the book. Please feel free to contact me and I will put you in touch with my cousin.
