1 thought on “Lawrence County, Mississippi Census Records”
I am trying to track down my family roots. I am look for the generation s of McDuffeys and Harris. The McDuffeys are from New Hebrone and the Harris are from Sivler Creek both in Lawrence County Mississippi. I can only go back 3 generations on my mom’s mom side and only 2generations on my mom’s dad side and that’s only with a great-grandmother name of Alice. So any help I can get would be great.
