Hi,

1935 Rural, Greenwood County, Mississippi
1940 Leake, Greenwood, MS
Ben Higgs, b. MS, 43, farmer
Eula, wife, b. MS, 29
Pearlile Smith, b. MS, 12, adopted dau
Bernice Mayhan, white, b. MS, 8, adopted dau
Sarah Ellen Higgs, b. MS, 2, dau

If you're looking for info about Bernice's parents, you're going to have to find her adoption record and original birth certificate in Mississippi. Do a Google search for adoption records Mississippi. Most states seal the adoption records and you have to find out how to proceed which sometimes means hiring a lawyer.

If you're looking for records for the other parts of Bernice's life, post the query in that county and state. Genforum isn't as popular and more people use www.rootsweb.com now. Successful Searching!
