I have a Mary Ann Spann b 1830 TN, d bef 1861 Saline Co AR, who married 27 Jan 1848 Itawamba Co MS, to John Benjamin Hill. They had a dau Lavina who was supposedly born abt 1848 in Itawamba Co. I don't know if this family lived in Pulaski Co at any time or not. I am curious. Do you know the parents of your Mary Spann? Do you suppose this John is the brother of your Benjamin? Seems odd they both married a Mary Spann, and both have a dau with possibly the same name, and both brothers also named Benjamin...hummm...

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you ....... seems to be so much difference of opinion on the ancestry of Hezikiah, someday with all the records being gone through and put on computer, hopefully it will all come together.

I really appreciate the descents of Hezikiah, what I sent you is what I had on his children.

Thank you again.
