Itawamba Settlers Spring 2008 Issue Scheduled for March

Itawamba Settler’s Spring 2008 issue is now in production and should be delivered to the printers late next week with an expected mailing date around the third week of March.

This issue contains quite a few interesting articles including a feature article and photographs about Elvis Presley’s Itawamba County ancestors and cousins, an article about Unionists in Itawamba County during the Civil War era, the George Shumpert Estate Depositions that tell an interesting story of hiding cotton during the Civil War, a transcription of the New Salem Church Deed from 1840 (this deed predates by ten years, the earliest known one to exist before), Itawamba County Masonic Records from the 1880’s, Itawamba County Board of Supervisors minutes from the 1880’s, old Itawamba County newspaper abstracts, several old county photographs, and much more.

Itawamba Settlers is the quarterly membership magazine of the Itawamba Historical Society and is in its 27th year of publication. For further information about the magazine, including a full contents index back to 1982, visit the society’s Quarterly Magazine area of the society’s website.
