Your post was interesting. My great grandfather, Hannie Jefferson Terry is from Crystal Springs, MS. I do not know his father, who rumor has it was white, with last name of Johnson. His mother passed on the Terry name to him. He married Gustavia Hilliard Terry also I believe of Crystal Springs MS, and had 3 children, Hanson McKinley Terry, my grandfather who was born in 1925, Clementine Terry, Harry Terry. Not sure if they are all related or not, details are really pretty fuzzy.

Sorry, the Clementine I am referring to is a woman who died some 20 years ago. Any family from the Mississippi area? Thanks for the reply.
