This gap in publicity between crimes against the Confederate military and crimes against
civilians might be thought to be an effect of the stories published by T.J. Knight about his
father, which of course may be somewhat biased in Newt's favor. However, this is not likely
the case, the best example being the episode of McLemore's murder. The story of
McLemore's murder given in this and numerous other writings is the same story one would
likely hear if one stopped ten Jones Countians on the street and asked them about Newt
Knight. However, it is radically different from T.J. Knight's account, which not only says that
a major reason for McLemore's murder was that he was a "news-toter" to Lowry (which is
clearly incorrect, as McLemore was dead long before Lowry ever set foot in Jones County),
but that the murder took place in McLemore's home. (62) Every other known source places
the murder in the Ellisville home of Representative Amos Deason. Deason's house still
stands today, on the corner between Ellisville Elementary and South Jones High School.
Having attended both schools, this author can state that the story that McLemore was
murdered by Newt Knight in that home is widely known even by the schoolchildren of
modern-day Jones County. This information obviously did not come from T.J. Knight, and
therefore the publicity or lack thereof of Newt Knight's activities cannot be attributed to any
bias on the part of his son.

   Thomas Sellers, mentioned as a grandson in the 1880 census is the son of
John Jr and Belle Sellers. Belle and John Jr were cousins but did not
marry. I do not know if Ancebelle Sellers also mentioned is in the 1880
census is the same person. According to family stories, Belle took Thomas
to his father in 1879 and she left Mississippi for New Orleans. Belle
Sellers or Anabelle was the daughter of King Richard Sellers and Martha
Easterling. King Richard died a Prisoner of War at Ft. Delaware in 1864.
Martha, his wife, died about 1873, so all their children went to live with
different families of King Richard's brothers and sisters.

I'm a grandson of Thomas Sellers who married Eva Loper. Maybe this will
shed some light on this branch of the Sellers.

unknown. She Married Justice Wiggins Walters in 1866, She died in Goodrich,
Polk County Texas and is buried in Peebles Cemetery.
Any info on the Pridgen of Jones or Covington County Mississippi would be
greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

I have a lot of Gandy information - will check in the next few days.  My
great grandmother was Eliza Caroline Gandy Ross, daughter of Able and
Lavinia JOHNSON Gandy, granddaughter of Booka Delilah Gandy and great
granddaughter of Brinkley.  Many of this crew moved South stopping in
Georgia and Alabama.  Brinkley died in Butler County Alabama.  I would look
now but I left London at noon and it would now be 3:30 AM their time.
About

I am looking for the children of Demarie Gandy,
daughter of John Jonas Gandy of Jones Co. MS, who married William W.
Sellers.
Demarie was born in 1855, I don't know when William was born or when they
married. I would appreciate any information on William and his family.
