I am not tracing the Outlaw family, but Margaret Outlaw married Robert H. Spencer back circa the 1860's, and I am researching the Spencers. Here is some Outlaw info I copied during my Spencer research:
Note: The Oktibbeha County courthouse burned June 18, 1880. Most all chancery and circuit court records were lost except for the land deeds. The courthouse has complete land deeds from ~1834. However, deed book 4 appears to be missing. This book covers the period from approximately 1848-1851.
Will Book 1 1881-1937 (summary follows)
Outlaw, Clara Eliza - page 22, June 17, 1881
Outlaw, D.W., Sr - page 342, Feb 3, 1918

Outlaw, Clara Eliza - June 17, 1881 - Clara was the wife of Dossey A. Outlaw, deceased. Lists the following people: 1) daughter Ella A. Harvey, who received the home place and all improvements; 2) Margaret E. Spencer, daughter, who received land in the Catalpa bottom plus half interest in all other lands, half of the livestock, half of the life insurance proceeds, and half interest from stock in the Hashuqua factory; 3) daughter Mary M. Outlaw; 4) son Dossey W. Outlaw and his children; and 5) these specific grandchildren: Clara Harvey, Clara Spencer, and Clara Outlaw. All of the above mentioned heirs received various livestock and household furnishings, though not transcribed here.

I know there are other Outlaws buried in Oktibbeha County, but these were the only ones I copied down. I'm sorry but I no longer have access to the Oktibbeha County Cemetery book either...
If this is your family, I can share a little more about Robert H. Spencer and Margaret Outlaw. I actually have very little on them in particular. I have more information on Robert's parents, grandparents, etc., but I am willing to share what I have.
Good luck in your research!
