States: Mississippi: Carroll
I know it is a long shot, but I am trying to locate any relatives of Hernando DeSoto Money (former Senator of MS). I have an embroidery of the WW1 Battleship - The USS Mississippi (BB 23) that was made in 1907 by my great grandmother - Mrs. R. W. Tribble. Along with the ship in the embroidery is the likeness of a Mabel Clare Money. According to internet research of this ship on the internet she was the daughter of MS Senator Hernando DeSoto Money and she was the one to commission this ship. This is further confirmed by the presence of champagne bottles flanking her likeness in the embroidery. I would think that the Money family relatives would enjoy seeing a picture of this embroidery (of which I will gladly provide), but I am new to all of this genealogy stuff and am not quite sure how to go about it. I have e-mailed all of the information to various genealogy webmasters in MS, universities in MS, and even to people in Ocean Springs, MS with the last name of Money, but I have yet to get one response. I know that H.D. Money hailed from Carrollton, MS in Carroll County, but his son moved to Ocean Springs, MS (on the Rose Farm). I would love to find any information on Mable Clare Money if possible, but mainly would like to connect with surviving family members of the Money family.
Thank you and I appreciate any help that you can give.
