Frank, sure wished I have read this eariler. I'm also of the Wooten blood-line. My GGGrandfather( George Wooten) was born abt 1834 in Surry County Va, moved to Cabin Point , Va. then to Lenior County, NC and on to Ms. It is said that our ancestors were free-blacks until they got to Ms.Several of his children are a mistery to us. We are in search of Elizabeth, Thomas,& Daniel.. we believed they either moved back to NC or Texas.These will be children from a previous marriage or even step children...or just the oldest of all his children being born between 1850-1860. We do not find George in Ms until after 1860.
