It was good to hear from you. I've been snowed under the last week but things are better now. Following is the genealogy on our McCLENDONs and LOTTs:

MCCLENDON, Joseph Parker (b. ca 1856. The grave you found must be his)
m. LOTT, Julia (b.29 Nov. 1859 d. 24 July 1933, buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Poplarville. Her parents were John LOTT and Margarette Pounds. Both are buried next to Julia. Julia was possibly married to a Eubanks or Banks prior to the marriage to Joe. She had a child (may not have been a natural child, but she raised him as well as three Lott children belonging to her brother John. I'll share an interesting story about how this all came about before I end all this. Poor Julia had a tough life!) She was also married to Whit Cruthird after Joe for a brief time.

It seems the LOTT family was a very prominent family in these parts. My great aunt on my grandmother's side (Eugene's in-laws) once told us that Julia was pretty well-off when she and Joe married, that she owned a lot of land but after Joe left, her brother John talked her into going into a brick-making business and she lost everything. G.Aunt Corine said Julia was a very proud person and wouldn't take charity from anyone. She said she sewed and even took in laundry to take care of her children. I wonder if her business relationship may have caused her split with Joe.

Julia was also known in the area as a mid-wife. People in the area called her to deliver babies. She must have been a remarkable woman. I've heard Julia was practically deaf. I don't know if this happened early in her life or if it was something that was related to age.

Alcus BANKS (may have originally been Eubanks) b. 27 Feb. 1879 d. 12 Sept. 1901. Burial in Poplarville City Cemetery. He was murdered by Hezekiah Amacker who served sentence in Parchman for the crime. I have copies of newspaper articles. Big-time news.

MCCLENDON children:

Leoter M., b. 20 SEPT 1883 d. 27 Nov. 1948 Married Dick Cowart

Chester Eugene, b. 25 Mar 1886 d. 14 Mar 1945 Married Martha Elizabeth GLOVER (These are my grandparents. I can give you further info on them if you want it. They had 12 children.)

Henry Monroe, b. 31 Jan 1888 d. 26 April 1970 Married Ada ?

John Edward, b. 9 Mar 1891 d. 9 Sept. 1950 Married Artena Cooper, Mabel Graves, Zuleima Corkern. (I know you probably have gathered the specifics already. I need to get the facts from you.)

Minnie Belle, b. ? d.? Married James Warren Mizelle. buried in Louisiana. (I bet Jimmy could help us on her descendants. He said they lived in Isabelle.)

Julia raised her brother John H. LOTT's three children. He was killed while working on a water wheel at a grist mill. His wife died shortly thereafter from an appendicitis while being transported by train to New Orleans for treatment. My grandmother (who seemed to really admire her mother-in-law, Julia) said several days after Mrs. Lott had been sent to New Orleans neighbors told Julia that John's children were by themselves at their house. It seems they were all preschool aged. Julia found the baby, Wiley, sitting in the fireplace eating ashes. She gathered them up and took them home with her. I don't have names of the girls but I can get them from Dan LOTT.

I don't know how accurate this is, but Dan Lott (one of our distant cousins) said Joe's father's name was Jesse and was from Louisiana. I have found information in the DAR books and in Revolutionary War Pensioner's records that Shadrack McClendon (soldier) and son Jesse was living in Mississippi in 1840 but had moved to Louisiana by 1855. I don't think the dates would work out for Shadrack to be Joe's grandfather. He may be Joe's great grandfather and there might be two Jesses. I'm still running this rabbit! Shadrack's other children were Lewis, Sallie, Deborah and William. Shadrack was born in South Carolina to Lewis (also Rev. Soldier) and Nancy Belle --?

I'll go ahead and post this. I'll follow with the info I have on Julia's family in another post.

Be back soon,

Subj: LOTT info
Date: 95-07-04 21:00:37 EDT

Now for the LOTT info:

Julia LOTT was the daughter of John LOTT (b.23 Oct 1831 d. 15 NOV 1871 Married Margarette C. "Grace" Pounds on 11 OCT 1831) John and Margarette had at least four children I know of: Julia (one census says Juliann), Roseann, and Leona and John. (I'm counting on Dan Lott's research for more information).
John Lott was the son of Joshua Lott and Rosanna Barnes. They were married 5 Feb 1824. I have a copy of the entry in Marion County records on their marriage. (Joshua may have had a first wife named Martha) One census lists their household members as JW, SE, AA, ME. These folks were some of the first white settlers in the territory. I've been told John's brother's name was Solomon.
Joshua's parents were Luke LOTT and Cynthia --?
Now for Julia's mother: Margarette C. "Grace" Pounds.
Margarette was the daughter of Joseph E. Pounds and Elizabeth Kellar. Joseph was licensed to the gospel ministry 19 Nov 1854. This was recorded in Marion County on 20 SEPT 1855. (There is also a record of Isham J. Pounds being licensed as a minister of the Gospel, vouched for by Joseph E. Pounds and Elliott W. Moore, recorded 16 Dec 1855. May be Joseph Pounds family)
It's family tradition that Margarette Pounds was 1/4 Indian which would mean her mother would have been 1/2 Indian. I don't have proof but I believe the Indian heritage came through Margarette's mother, Elizabeth Kellar. In a history book on the settling of the Southeastern US, there is several references to a Kellar family who was connected by marriage to a ruling tribe.
Margarette had a brother named Kirk Pounds and possibly one named Edgar. I got this from Wylie Johnson, an elderly man I just happened to meet whose mother was Leona LOTT (sister to Julia). Wylie was a retired minister when I met him. He was practically deaf so it was difficult to converse with him. He did tell me he remembered Margarette (his grandmother) as a beautiful dark haired woman who had a "strong dip of Indian blood." Wouldn't you just love to see a portrait of her?
Wylie said he thought Margarette had two brothers who operated a ferry on Pearl River four miles south of Bogalusa, known as Pool's Ferry or Pool's Bluff. It was used by Jackson's troops to cross the river on the way to New Orleans. Pounds sold it to Alex Montgomery.
Guess that's about it for my ancient history. I'm so glad you are interested in it, too. Maybe we can get eventually get it compiled. I'll write again later.
Best regards,

Pull your folder on the Pounds family. I've just lucked out and unearthed a book which lists the generations of our Pounds and Kellar families. I couldn't believe it. I had a few spare minutes yesterday, so stopped at USM's genealogy library. By chance I checked the index in the Pike County History (no idea that we were connected). Low and behold, there they were: Pounds, Kellar, and Tate (these from the other side of my family).

I'm going to try to buy a copy of the book. However, I did find an inconsistent date or two. My dates came directly from a tombstone or official court records so I believe I'm correct.

Although the book gives a more complete listing, I'm going to send you the direct lineage of our family so you can complete your records. (I hope the copyright laws for cyberspace or lenient <*>)


"The Pound/Pounds family that lived in Hinds, Copiah, Lawrence, and Marion Counties in Mississippi, as well as Washington and St. Tammany Parishes in Louisiana, were all related and, no doubt, spring from the same South Carolina stem. The Daniel Pound who lived and married in Pike County came to that area from Tennessee but was probably related, distantly, to the people of the same name who had settled in close proximity years before his arrival."

"The Pound family is not prolific in South Carolina, as in 1800 only two of the name were enumerated on the census or that state, namely Peter in Orangeburg and John in Greenville. However, in 1790 there was a John Pound and according to the census figures not the same as the John in Greenville ten years later who lived with a family in Prince George Parish, Georgetown Dist., SC. Since this family did not appear on the 1800 Census (even though there is a possibility he moved on west), there is the possibility that he died leaving a widow who remarried--and was thus unidentifiable at a later date."

"However, in 1810 two Pounds men, presumably brothers, reappear in what was part of old Prince George Parish, then Marion Co., SC, named Isom (Isham) and Joseph. There is little doubt that this is the Ishom who later moved to Marion County, Miss. then St. Tammany Par., La., then to Hinds Co, Miss., and back to St. Tammany Par. after 1835. Most of the older children of this Ishom declared to have been born in S.C."

Now the abbreviated version of the list. We're moving toward Margarette C. "Grace" Pounds who married John Lott.

Back to Top

POUNDS, John (possibly father of these)
*** 1. Isom Pounds b. ca. 1775, d. in 1856 in La; married Margaret Parker, d. ca. 1861 in Liberty Co., TX.
2.  Joseph Pounds
3.  William Pounds
4.  --Pounds, a daughter
5.  --Pounds, a daughter

*** Children of Isom Pounds and Margaret Parker:
1.  Mary (Polly) Ann Pounds
2.  A son prior to 1810, possibly Theodore
3.  A daughter, name unknown, prior to 1810
4.  Margaret L. Pounds
5.  John J. Pounds
6.  Isom Johnson Pounds (married sister to Elizabeth Keller)
*** 7.  Joseph E. Pounds b. 1818, d. 1882 in Marion Co., Miss, also a Baptist Minister, married in 1838 in St. Tammany Parish to Elizabeth
Kellar, sister to Sarah Matilda Keller (Isom's wife). Children:
*** a.  Margaret C. Pounds b. 4/4/1839, married 10/11/1855 to John Lott
    (They are buried in Oak Hill Cemetery. Her name is spelled Margarette I believe)
b.  Sophia Ardell Pounds
c.  Johnson Bruce Pounds
d.  Joseph L. Pounds
e.  Henry Bonaparte Pounds
f.  Sarah E. Pounds b. 1/11/1857 or 58 married ---Lott. (I completed her's because it may have a connection to your HATHORNE family)

8. Minera Pounds (married brother to the Keller girls)
9. Elizabeth Ann Pounds
11.Robert M. Pounds
12.Andrew Jackson Pounds.

This is as far as the author goes but I've sent you Margarette and John Lott's children already, which I believe are pretty reliable. Forget the info on Kirk and Edgar. Either they were some other relative or nicknames for Margarette's brothers. Could have been from other branches of Wylie Johnson's family because he told me he wasn't sure but thought they were Margarette's brothers.

As I said, I'm sending the skeleton. If you want the rest, let me know. Our family seemed to have a fixation on certain given names and liked to marry the in-laws!

NOW RECORDS ON KELLER family. This is Margarette Pounds' mother (Elizabeth Keller Pounds) family. The immigrates were Daniel and Anna Margaret Keller with children John and Philip, our ancestor. Jacob was born later. More about the immigrants after the following lineage:

"The Keller (Kellar) brothers and sisters, who married the Pounds brothers and sisters had migrated into Marion County, Miss, from Orangeburg Co, S.C. in the 1820s with their parents Philip and Lydia Keller. Shortly thereafter, they moved further south to St. Tammany Parish, La. where Philip Keller, the father, died on April 9, 1834. Lidi'e (as spelled on one record) died about the same time. Her maiden name was never discovered, but she was probably a Singletary. Philip and Lydia's children:

1.  John Keller
*** 2.  Henry Keller b. 5/9/1796 in Orangeburg, d. 1/31/1889 in Silbee, TX married 5/5/181 in Marion County, MS to Sophia Page d. 1/2/1863 in St. Tammany Parish, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Page (probably Lawrence County, Miss. Children of Henry and Sophia:
a.   John Keller
b.   William Keller
*** c.   Elizabeth Keller b. 4/14/1819 d. 8/30/1873 married Joseph Edward Pounds
d.   Martha Ann Keller
f.   Henry K. Keller
g.   Catherine Keller
h.   Rachel P. Keller

"Philip Keller who died in St. Tammany in 1834 arrived in South Carolina in 1766 at the age of two years. He, with his mother Anna Margaret, aged 28, and older brother John, aged 8, came on the ship named the Belfast Packet. His father Daniel Keller had arrived in the South Carolina colony prior to Oct. 1766, on the ship Britannia which had embarked several months before from Amsterdam. Being Protestant and upon accepting an invitation to Protestants from the South Carolina General Assembly in 1761, Daniel had come to America. The S.C. Assembly had awarded Daniel 250 acres for his family on 10/17/1766--Land which was later surveyed in the German settlement in Orangeburg District."

There is about a half page of info on their participation in the American Revolution and property description. Seems Daniel was too old to fight but provided some supplies to the Continental and Militia. John (who signed his name Johannas) served 78 days with General Francis Marion. Philip also served as a private in General Marion's Brigade.

I'll close for now. Write you later.
