I am trying to find my gg-grandfather name William Outten.
The story that was told to me was, William Outten born around 1840 came over as a slave, and was maked with a woman
(name unknown) had childern. Who was later separated from him. He later maked to a woman in RankinCo. Mississippi name Sibby or Vibby Scott they had three childern named:
John(my great grandfather), Kathy, Louaeria. Around 1881 William Outten went to Canton,Mississippi to sell his cotton, gave the money to his son John to give to his mother, and was never seen in Mississippi again. It was said that William Outten knew where is first family was at,
in the Bahamas. So he went to look for his first love.
1. Who was this unknown woman?
2. How many childern he had by this first love?
3. Did William Outten make it to the Bahamas?

So if you have any information that can fill this big space on my query worksheet, I would be very greatful.
