Looking for a family from Itawamba County, Mississippi to the Delta somewhere around Issaquena County about 1925. They were on the 1920 census near Fulton and lost all contact with the family after that. There were a number of girls that all went to college and some sons also. If anyone has ever heard of William Nathaniel Webb or any of these children, p-l-e-a-s-e! contact me. We've been looking for them for years and had not luck.

Notes for William Nathaniel "Willy Natt" Webb
According to the 1920 census, Willy Nat and family were in Texas from approximately 1910 until 1918 or so. And why is Vonda listed as 'girl' instead of 'daughter'???
