I am looking for more information on my Great Great Grandfather Thomas Hendrix Johnson(1884-1973) I know that he died and is buried in Mississippi and that he was married to a woman named Jimmie Homan. They are both buried at the Pontocola Cemetery in Troy, MS. Maybe I just don't know where to look but I haven't been able to find anything. Thanks in advance for any help.

I do not find a Thomas Johnson born Sept 1884 in Lee or Pontotoc counties 1900 census which shows month and year of birth. Most of 1890 record burned in 1921. In Tupelo, Lee county in 1900 there is a James Homan born 1889 listed as a nephew which could be an error ? Need "Jimmie's" SS5 also.
