Thank you for your reply, we are starting to trace my family history, and don't have much to go on. My great grandfather was Zachary Taylor Gaines and he his the son of Pendleton and Nancy Posey Gaines. We have that Pendleton was in pontotoc County Miss in 1860 acdording to a slave schedule listed him as a farmer who had one slave. We have been told that someone in our family on the wives side was a full blooded indian, not sure from what tribe. We have little information on William Larkin at this time we have who he married and when they died and who their children were and where he is buried and that he was the first school master in tipton, north of hatchie in the Thompson settlement somewhere around 1827.
Thanks for the response we would appreciate any information and we will send you anything you need that we currently have.
Thank You
Ernie Jackson Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
