My Wayne County connection is to the Horne Family.
John H Horne Jr who married a cousin in my family, Augusta H Black. Augusta's father was born in PA but moved to Alabama. Augusta b. 5 Nov 1840 in Alabama d. 8 Nov 1912. John H Horne Jr b. 6 Feb 1840 in Mississippi d. 19 Nov 1888 in Victoria Australia. They married 18 Oct 1868. John Jr. and Augusta had 7 children I know of.
John H Horne's parents were John Hendrick Horne Sr and Mary McCall Everett. Happy to share the information I have. His Father John H Horne owned quite a number of slaves in Wayne Co Mississippi. I would like to know more about this families slave holding history as well as why John Jr left for Australia.
