Joseph South, appox birth 1811in TN ?
Posted by: Joanie South (ID *****1885) Date: December 27, 2004 at 17:05:16

I am seaching for information regarding a Joseph South, born approx 1811 in TN. An 1880 Census states Joseph's father was born in NC and his mother in SC. His wife was Martha, born approx 1816 in TN. I think her maiden name was Woodruff. The 1880 Census has them living in Prentiss, Mississippi with their grandson, who I beleive is my Gr Gr Grandfater, Edward E. South.

An earlier Census from 1860 lists the same Joseph and Martha South living in AL with 7 children, William, Fleming, Joseph A Jr., Louisa, Allen, Franklin, and Luther. I am not sure which one of these children was my Gr Gr Grandfather, Edward E South's father.

Other info regarding Edward E South that may be helpful is I think one of his sons was Bluit Thomas South born approx 1891 in AL.

I am also trying to locate Joseph South father. At one time I thought it may have been Edward but I have not found any info regarding this on census.

Any information will be appreciated.
