To Diane and Others: I am interested in genealogy in Leake and Madison Counties, MS. My gggrandfather William Cauthen was the brother of Lucy C. Leitaker, married to Moses Leitaker of NC. Lucy and Moses died young; two of their children John and Daniel had families with African-American women: John with Ann Cauthen and Daniel with Sally Frazier. I haven't been able to make a connection with any of John and Ann's descendents. Dan and Sally had two sons, Major and Jeff (Jefferson). Today descendents of Major live in the Thomastown community in Leake Co. Daniel Leitaker later married a white woman; many of their descendents live in northern California. For more info see the 1920 Federal census, Leake Co., Beat 3-Thomastown #28 for Major; For Jeff: 1910 Madison Co. ED41 #205; For John and Ann, 1880 Madison Co., Beat 5 #28. The 1930 census should be available soon, which should give researchers additional help. Good Luck, Tom
