Who are your Landrums? I have done extensive research on all Landrum lines including the ones in Hancock County, some of whom moved to Louisiana.

I have Landrum family back to Turiff to my Mother, Lila Landrum Cansler. My quest if for Richard Drake Landrum last known to be in Montgomery Co, AL where he purchased land. He was s/o George Lewis and Rebecca Drake Landrum.
I have heard from relatives that R.D. married Penelope Hammond and can find no mention of that or their deaths. Pick it up with their two sons, Samuel C. and Wm Benjamin Landrum in KY where they married two Beasley sisters.
ANY info or hint will be greatly appreciated.

My wife descends from Franklin P. Landrum and Kiziah Brown. After his death, Kiziah married John H Bedgood and moved to Louisiana. Sons Albert and Frank Landrum later moved to Louisiana but son Lucius stayed in Hancock County.

Does anyone know which military unit Franklin P served in during the Civil War and where he was buried?

His brother Jackson Landrum enlisted in Company C, 38th Cavalry Regiment Mississippi.

"Annie was the daughter of Lucius Lamar Landrum and his first wife, Melissa Lewis."

Dear BettySmithDavis

Thank you very much.

My wife descends from Franklin P. Landrum and Kiziah Brown.

I have been helping my father-in-law fill in some "Landrum" data. I found Kiziah and second husband John H. Bedgood in Calcasieu Parish, La in 1870 with his/their children but none of Kiziah's children by Franklin P Landrum were with her.

In 1880 the Bedgood family was in Vernon Parish, La and Kiziah's son Albert Landrum was listed nearby with a new spouse.

PS My father-in-law says the spelling of her name on her gravestone is "Kizsirah". That is surely a variation on "Kiziah" but one I had not run across.

Hello, I work at Stennis Space Center and I am doing a research project currently about the land that was acquired to build NASA. I would love to see the Gainesville papers that you have. We have a list of the graves that where moved but do not have names for those that were unmarked. Please reply, I may have some great info for you.
