Doing genealogical research for a friend, for about 15 years, regarding his gg grandfather Manson Anderson Langston. The earliest census record I found was 1880 in Leake Couny, MS. Manson was 17 and living with his grandmother, Malisyd (as it appeared in census record) Wittington and his female cousin Dendy or Denby. I am wondering if that was actually the cousin's last name. Malisy was born in VA. No one knows the name of either of Manson's parents, but family lore says he was white and Choctaw. Do any of these names sound familiar? Manson owned a farm near Carthage, MS. I would love to know more about Malisy. I am assuming Manson's mother was Malisy's daughter. If you know anything, could you email me at Mooncat314@aol.com....just
so I know if there has been a posting.
