My husband descends from James F. McQuirter's sister, Lucinda, who married Benjamin Payne.
James F. McQuirter, born 1850, was the son of James M. McQuirter of Tennessee and Mary. James Sr. was married three times: first to Charity Suttle, then Mary, then Sarah Elizabeth ?Malone.
James F. McQuirter married Carrie Elizabeth "Lizzie" or "Bettie" Ivy, daughter of Josephus Ivy and Lucy Ophelia Steinweinder. Information in a Clarke County Mississippi History book published by that county's historic society gives this interesting story: "When Carrie Ivey (Ivy) was just a baby, the Union troops were in the Clarke county area. For some unknown reason, the troops killed Carrie's mother and left the baby in the woods. She was found and raised by others in the Ivey (Ivy) family." Carrie Elizabeth Ivy McQuirter is buried in the Devoe cemetery in Clarke county - she died April 6, 1947. The Anderson family is also mentioned in this book. I would be happy to make copies of this information for you and snail mail it to you. Just contact me privately and give me your address.
