Hi,

According to the 1860 Choctaw Co. MS Census, Abner was a male.

It looks like both Abner and Martha died before the 1870 Census.

Josephine Howard, b. MS, 16

I didn't find her marriage license but she married about 1871 to Julius Grover Harris

You can contact the Choctaw County Clerk of Circuit Court and ask if they will do a lookup.

Another resource is the MS Department Archives and History, http://opac2.mdah.state.ms.us/county/mfcounty.php.

According to the same family tree Joephine (Phennie) and Julius had four children.

Born: 23 May 1854

The MS Archives might have her death record too.

I'd look in the MS Newspapers, htt://opac2.mdah.state.ms.us/msnews1.php for a copy of her death notice.

Julius re-married.
