I am seeking information on James W McGinnis, who I believe was my great-great-great grandfather. He was born in 1836 in Clarksville TN, and later moved to Columbia, Caldwell Parish, where we became the Parish superintendent of Education and the mayor of Columbia. He married Nancy (Ruth) Dunagin, and his parents names were John S. and Martha (Matthews) McGinnis, and but that is about all I know. Any more details about this family or any ancestors before them would be very much appreciated!
thanks so much.
