Thanks for this information. While visiting my father in Arkansas a few years ago I made a trip to an antique store in Friar's Point, Mississippi. There I purchased a full set of Edward Gibbon's "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire," 1909 edition. Each of the books contain a label saying they are from the library of "Amelia Swift-Rison." The antique store owner said that she was a descendant of James Lusk Alcorn, former governor of Mississippi.
Thanks again for your information.
