Dr. Henry Tooley 1773-1848

  of 837

Dr. Henry Tooley is mentioned in Charles Sydnor's "A Gentleman of the Old Natchez Region, Benjamin L.C. Wailes", Duke Univ. Press, 1938. From this I know: Adam, Henry's father came to Natchez sometime before 1803;Henry, after leaving N.C., was methodist minister in Tenn. & became a physician there. Apparently in Natchez by 1823, since he wrote a history of the Natchez yellow fever epidemic in that year. Possibly in Natchez by 1813. Also wrote "Recollections Some Thirty Years Since", recounting events of his youth in New Bern, N.C. Pub. in Methodist Magazine IX, 1826. Wrote on the tornado of 1840 that killed over 300 people in Natchez and kept detailed notes on climate - rainfall, temp, etc. Henry died in Natchez in 1848 at age 75. I would like to know: (1)When did Adam come to Natchez; (2)When did Henry come to Natchez;(3)Where is Henry buried(he is not in Natchez cemetery with his wife and others);(4)whereabouts of any surviving documents(manuscripts, personl papers, etc.) As for me, I am not a Tooley descendant. My interest is historical, not genealogical. Thank You- Ed Leigh, Natchez,Mississippi
