I now understand the relation of Luvica Jackson. I didn't know if she was a Jackson or Johnston. Mahala's daughter,Luvica Jackson,was married to Samuel Shelton.Samuel Shelton was married second to Mary Carpenter and married a third time.
Luvica Jackson Shelton's children are my Grandmothers half brothers and sisters.
My grandmother Mary Ida Shelton married John Rankin Snell.
Her siblings are Watt Shelton, Lonnie Shelton, and Lula Shelton.
I do know one of Luvica's daughters,Sarah Idavia,(Donie) married Steve Carpenter and another a McCormick. Do you have information on these families? Steve and Donie are buried at Liberty Church Cemetery at Jefferson,MS.
I'm interested in everything. I enjoy genealogy.
