LUCKETT & SEMMES Afro-Americans from Locust Grove

Looking for additional information on this line. Alexander Luckett, and his wife, Charity Luckett, were slaves taken from Locust Grove, GA to Madison County, Mississippi probably between 1842 and 1847. This is when most of the early White Lucketts came to Mississippi from the St. Mary’s congregation in Locust Grove, Georgia.

The 1870 Canton, MS census lists Alexander Luckett at 60 years old (b. ca. 1810), and doing “Farm Labor.” Charity’s age is listed at 45 (b. ca. 1825). Both are shown as being born in Georgia. There are 7 children in the household; Emily (16 yrs. old), Adaline (12), Luccisse (Louisa?) (11), Boiley (7), Ann (5), and Frank (4). All the children were born in MS. My line out of Frank Luckett. Several Afro-American Lucketts married Semmes, also brought to MS from GA.
