Looking for any information on Lorenzo Dow Baughan. He appears to have connections in the following counties: Holmes, Monroe, Lowndes, and Chickasaw.

He received a land grant on 27 Feb 1841 for 79.91 acres, reported by the BLM website to be in Monroe and Lowndes counties: Sec. 11, Twp. 16-S, Range 18-W, Parts SW quarter of the SE quarter and SE quarter of the SW quarter. This land was paid for by a Daniel Nuner (aka Nooner), and the rights assigned to Baughan. Have no access to land map showing sections, etc., which would allow placement of this property on modern map.

Daniel Nooner was found in the 1840 census in Chickasaw County. Baughan not yet found in any county in 1840.

Lorenzo D. Baughan was found in Holmes County on 18 Sep 1850. He was age 46, born in VA. Wife was 21, born in MS, and her name in this and the next two census reports was Leveca, Levern, and Louisa E. There was a son named Benton, age 13 (obviously by Lorenzo's previous wife), who is reported as born in MS.

Living with Baughan in 1850 was the family of James B. Glenn, the Glenn and Baughan families having some connection in Virginia. Glenn had arrived within the past year from VA.

By 1860, Benton was not listed and has not been found under that name anywhere. L. D. Baughan and wife were in Holmes County through 1870. No other children shown.

There must be a deed record showing Lorenzo's sale of the land granted in 1841 in either Monroe or Lowndes County.

He appears to have owned land in Holmes. It is not known if he left a will or if he died in Holmes County. If he moved away, the land would have been sold.

Would like to have a response from anyone who has come across any deeds, tax records, estate records or vital records concerning these people.

There also was a Samuel H. Baughan in Holmes County, whose relationship to Lorenzo is unknown.
