Myatt Family Genealogy Forum
I am looking for information regarding a Myatt family in Noxapater, Winston Co., Mississippi.
Walter Cavin was my ggrandfather. I don't have his wife's name, but they had a large family. Siblings Ernest, Samuel, Walterine, Katherine, and "FM" Myatt all were born in Mississippi. There were at least 3 other siblings, all estranged. I believe that they were all born in Noxapater -- they definitely grew up there.
-Katherine is my grandmother. Katherine was born in 1919 and still lives in Mississippi, in a nursing home. When she was about 20, she legally changed her name to Katherine (original 1st name unk), married Joseph Mitchell and moved to Memphis, TN. They had three children: Luna Mae Mitchell, Walter Mitchell, Roberta Mitchell -- all still alive.
-Walterine was the oldest, no birthdate on her -- she died in the 1980's in Mississippi.
-Samuel was born Jan. 1908 and died in 1994 in Noxapater.
-F. Myatt (the M in "FM" was either a middle name or referred to Myatt) was born Sept. 1926 and died in Mississipppi in 1966.
My grandmother Katherine would have nothing to do with her Mississippi family and I have had great difficulties getting information.
