Well, that's interesting. I guess I just assumed my white Nelson's wouldn't be connected, but I shouldn't have done that. Think I'd better give you the name (if I didn't before; can't remember). My gg-grandfather was named either Darsey or Dorsey Nelson, and he was born about 1818 in Tennessee. He met up with the Blake family in Lowndes or Itawamba Co, MS and married Sarah Blake there about 1850 I think (2nd marriage for him; first for her). I believe the Blake's went to MS from the Carolinas in the mid 1800s. If you hear of any of them, let me know.
By-the-way, to get back to my original query, you've never heard of any company or organization about 1913-1914 in Mira, LA that required uniforms of their workers, have you? Thanks!
