We are researching these African American STRINGFELLOWs that seem to be connected with Mastin STRINGFELLOW of Tippah CO. We haad already had Pickens STRINGFELLOW in 1900 & 1910.
We have discovered the following data:

1880 Census, Franks Township, St Francis CO, Arkansas ED 262, pg 10

STRINGFELLOW, L. D. M(mulatto) M(male) 34 SC SC SC
Laura wife B F 24 TN not known not known
Pick son B M 8 MS SC TN
Vian dau B F 7 MS SC TN
Ivy son B M 5 MS SC TN
Harris, Rans nephew B M 11 MS GA SC

further down the page:

Dickerson, Moses B M 34 SC Not known not known
Vian wife B F 32 MS not known not known
James son B M 11 MS SC MS
Rans E son B M 10 MS SC MS
Anna E dau B F 9 MS SC MS
Luther L son B M 5 AR SC MS
Viola dau B F 3/12 AR SC MS
Stringfellow, Eliza mother-in-law B F 60 not known not known not known

So I checked MS 1870. Both Mose Dickerson and L. D. Stringfellow were there in Tippah Co.

1870 Tippah Co, Range three Township five
Stringfellow, L.D. 25 Male Black Farmer, SC
Lize 5? F B Keeping house

1870 Tippah Co, Range three Township five
Dickerson, Mose 26 M B Farmer MS
Vinna 24 F B keeping house MS
Frank 3 M B MS
Watin?/Warin? 2 M B MS
Sus?? 1 M B MS

In the 1860 slave census for Tippah Co, MS
Mastin Stringfellow is listed with only these 4 slaves:
1 65 M B
1 45 F B
1 14 F B
1 12 F B

If these are Eliza and LD and Vinna, the ages are a pretty good match, but the 14 year old should be Male, not female.

Does anyone have any information about the names of Mastin's slaves thad would confirm or disprove a connection?

Thanks for any suggestions or leads.
