Yalobusha Co has been the home of my family for more than one hundred years. Earliest members settled in what is called the New Hope and Benwood areas. William Wortham Hamblett, his wife, Malissa Love, and perhaps one child are buried in a woods in that area. His son, William Montero Hamblett(married Mary Willie Johnson) and his grandson, Samuel Louis Hamblett(married Willie Audra Wilson), are buried at New Hope cemetery. My father, Claude Ray Hamblett, lives in Lafayette Co. And his eldest sibling, Mary Ouida Hamblett McCracken, still lives in Coffeeville.
