The McMahon, Meredith and Curry Families of Mississippi

Updated September 18, 2009


The families of McMahon, Curry and Meredith/Merideth have a long history in Webster County, MS. They all were born in other states and moved on into Mississippi in the mid-eighteen hundred's. All had a family(s) member in the Rev War and there were many in the Civil War. These families are on my mother's side. The McMahon's have been the most difficult. "Old" David McMahon was born in SC abt 1814. He is my bick wall. I can not go any further back on him. Next is William Marion Curry also born in SC in 1821 and I luck out on Meredith's. "Old" Jesse Meredith was born in VA abt 1750 and was in the Rev War and I have the records on him and a transcriped copy of his fathers will dated 1782. So, my focus is on finding information of the McMahon family. I am willing to share any information that I have and hope there are others who would share with me.
