Researching the family of my great-grandfather William Jackson MCBROOM (1842 MS - 1900 LA). I have documentation on his direct ancestors and many other MCBROOM familes that I have collected over the years.
Also researching my other three great-grandparents: Robert Ivy MAY (1871 LA - 1962 LA), John Michael PLUNKETT (1881 LA - 1936 LA), William Jahugh ROWELL (1873 LA - 1956 LA). All three are from North Louisiana, with roots in AL, MS, SC.
Will gladly share information.
