Will do. Also, have been trying to determine parents of Atlas. The "other" Atlas, born abt 1846 that married Artie Knowles in 1867, seems to be the son of a John C Hinson born 1808 in North Carolina. Maybe John is a brother to Atlas and named a son for him. Trying to backtrack to our elder Atlas via JOhn C. Looked for wills in Anson County, NC, but no Atlas mentioned. Looks like Atlas left earlier for lands west than others who may be in the same family. This John C, according to other researchers, married in 1831 and moved in 1832 Merriwether, Ga, then abt 1852 to Alabama and then to Lee County, MS in 1855. In another Hinson family, a Charles Hinson that married Agnes Clark,
maybe the C in Atlas C, had a son named Sampson. Someone that named a son Sampson may name a son Atlas. I know, not a very good deduction.Who are Atlas' parents????
