Donna McCLENDON McGuyer, whose father was Chester Eugene
McCLENDON, (see above) is the serious genealogist in the family and probably has
some documentation on all of this, but much of this was from talking with several
relatives at the McCLENDON Family Reunion as couple of years ago as well as from
tombstones. Donna McCLENDON McGuyer, 717 Mulberry Street, Purvis, MS 39475, (601)

Date: 95-07-04 20:23:33 EDT
From: Donna McClendon McGuyer (email@example.com)
It was good to hear from you. I've been snowed under the last week but things are
better now. Following is the genealogy on our McCLENDONs and LOTTs:
- MCCLENDON, Joseph Parker (b. ca 1856. The grave you found must be his)
- m. LOTT, Julia (b.29 Nov. 1859 d. 24 July 1933, buried in Oak Hill Cemetery,
Poplarville. Her parents were John LOTT and Margarette Pounds. Both are buried next to
Julia. Julia was possibly married to a Eubanks or Banks prior to the marriage to Joe. She
had a child (may not have been a natural child, but she raised him as well as three Lott
children belonging to her brother John. I'll share an interesting story about how this all
came about before I end all this. Poor Julia had a tough life!) She was also married to
Whit Cruthird after Joe for a brief time.
It seems the LOTT family was a very prominent family in these parts. My great aunt on
my grandmother's side (Eugene's in-laws) once told us that Julia was pretty well-off when
she and Joe married, that she owned a lot of land but after Joe left, her brother John
talked her into going into a brick-making business and she lost everything. G.Aunt Corine
said Julia was a very proud person and wouldn't take charity from anyone. She said she
sewed and even took in laundry to take care of her children. I wonder if her business
relationship may have caused her split with Joe.
Julia was also known in the area as a mid-wife. People in the area called her to
deliver babies. She must have been a remarkable woman. I've heard Julia was practically
deaf. I don't know if this happened early in her life or if it was something that was
related to age.
- JULIA'S CHILDREN
- Alcus BANKS (may have originally been Eubanks) b. 27 Feb. 1879 d. 12 Sept. 1901. Burial
in Poplarville City Cemetery. He was murdered by Hezekiah Amacker who served sentence in
Parchman for the crime. I have copies of newspaper articles. Big-time news.
Leoter M., b. 20 SEPT 1883 d. 27 Nov. 1948 Married Dick Cowart
Chester Eugene, b. 25 Mar 1886 d. 14 Mar 1945 Married Martha Elizabeth GLOVER (These
are my grandparents. I can give you further info on them if you want it. They had 12
Henry Monroe, b. 31 Jan 1888 d. 26 April 1970 Married Ada ?
John Edward, b. 9 Mar 1891 d. 9 Sept. 1950 Married Artena Cooper, Mabel Graves, Zuleima
Corkern. (I know you probably have gathered the specifics already. I need to get the facts
Minnie Belle, b. ? d.? Married James Warren Mizelle. buried in Louisiana. (I bet Jimmy
could help us on her descendants. He said they lived in Isabelle.)
Julia raised her brother John H. LOTT's three children. He was killed while working on
a water wheel at a grist mill. His wife died shortly thereafter from an appendicitis while
being transported by train to New Orleans for treatment. My grandmother (who seemed to
really admire her mother-in-law, Julia) said several days after Mrs. Lott had been sent to
New Orleans neighbors told Julia that John's children were by themselves at their house.
It seems they were all preschool aged. Julia found the baby, Wiley, sitting in the
fireplace eating ashes. She gathered them up and took them home with her. I don't have
names of the girls but I can get them from Dan LOTT.
I don't know how accurate this is, but Dan Lott (one of our distant cousins) said Joe's
father's name was Jesse and was from Louisiana. I have found information in the DAR books
and in Revolutionary War Pensioner's records that Shadrack McClendon (soldier) and
son Jesse was living in Mississippi in 1840 but had moved to Louisiana by 1855. I don't
think the dates would work out for Shadrack to be Joe's grandfather. He may be Joe's great
grandfather and there might be two Jesses. I'm still running this rabbit! Shadrack's other
children were Lewis, Sallie, Deborah and William. Shadrack was born in South Carolina to
Lewis (also Rev. Soldier) and Nancy Belle --?
I'll go ahead and post this. I'll follow with the info I have on Julia's family in

From: Donna McClendon McGuyer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Now for the LOTT info:
- Julia LOTT was the daughter of John LOTT (b.23 Oct 1831 d. 15 NOV 1871 Married
Margarette C. "Grace" Pounds on 11 OCT 1831) John and Margarette had at least
four children I know of: Julia (one census says Juliann), Roseann, and Leona and John.
(I'm counting on Dan Lott's research for more information).
- John Lott was the son of Joshua Lott and Rosanna Barnes. They were married 5 Feb 1824. I
have a copy of the entry in Marion County records on their marriage. (Joshua may have had
a first wife named Martha) One census lists their household members as JW, SE, AA, ME.
These folks were some of the first white settlers in the territory. I've been told John's
brother's name was Solomon.
- Joshua's parents were Luke LOTT and Cynthia --?
- Now for Julia's mother: Margarette C. "Grace" Pounds.
- Margarette was the daughter of Joseph E. Pounds and Elizabeth Kellar. Joseph was
licensed to the gospel ministry 19 Nov 1854. This was recorded in Marion County on 20 SEPT
1855. (There is also a record of Isham J. Pounds being licensed as a minister of the
Gospel, vouched for by Joseph E. Pounds and Elliott W. Moore, recorded 16 Dec 1855. May be
Joseph Pounds family)
- It's family tradition that Margarette Pounds was 1/4 Indian which would mean her mother
would have been 1/2 Indian. I don't have proof but I believe the Indian heritage came
through Margarette's mother, Elizabeth Kellar. In a history book on the settling of the
Southeastern US, there is several references to a Kellar family who was connected by
marriage to a ruling tribe.
- Margarette had a brother named Kirk Pounds and possibly one named Edgar. I got this from
Wylie Johnson, an elderly man I just happened to meet whose mother was Leona LOTT (sister
to Julia). Wylie was a retired minister when I met him. He was practically deaf so it was
difficult to converse with him. He did tell me he remembered Margarette (his grandmother)
as a beautiful dark haired woman who had a "strong dip of Indian blood."
Wouldn't you just love to see a portrait of her?
- Wylie said he thought Margarette had two brothers who operated a ferry on Pearl River
four miles south of Bogalusa, known as Pool's Ferry or Pool's Bluff. It was used by
Jackson's troops to cross the river on the way to New Orleans. Pounds sold it to Alex
- Guess that's about it for my ancient history. I'm so glad you are interested in it, too.
Maybe we can get eventually get it compiled. I'll write again later.

I'm back again. Last night I was in a rush to get all the other genealogy info to you, and
didn't finish my lineage from Joseph Parker McClendon. (Oh yeah, almost forgot.
Joe's second wife was Laura Elizabeth Perry. Dan Lott who's doing the LOTT family history
gave me that information.)
My parents were Chester Eugene MCCLENDON and Martha Elizabeth GLOVER. As I wrote
yesterday, there were 12 children in their group. My parents are J.P. MCCLENDON (b.
23 JUN 1928 Married 10 April 1949) and Dorothy Jean WALLEY. They knew your dad many years
ago. Everybody in the family calls dad "Jake".
I was really shocked when I learned several years ago that Joe's name was Joseph
Parker McClendon. My dad was named initials, not names. He was told he was named
"J.P." for J.P. Culpepper, a friend of the family. My dad didn't know his
grandfather's real name until I told him. He still doesn't think his dad would have named
him for Joseph Parker, but I'm beginning to believe he may have been. I think by the time
my dad came along (1928), Grandma Julie probably had forgiven Joe. In fact, my grandmother
told me Grandma Julie went to take care of Joe when he was dying. Joe's first wife asked
her to come because Julia was considered a good nurse or something like that. I wonder if
Joe was trying to make peace with Julia before he passed on?
Talk to you later,
Subj: Pounds update
Date: 95-07-06 11:41:26 EDT
From: Donna McClendon McGuyer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Pull your folder on the Pounds family. I've just lucked out and unearthed a book which
lists the generations of our Pounds and Kellar families. I couldn't believe it. I had a
few spare minutes yesterday, so stopped at USM's genealogy library. By chance I checked
the index in the Pike County History (no idea that we were connected). Low and behold,
there they were: Pounds, Kellar, and Tate (these from the other side of my family).
I'm going to try to buy a copy of the book. However, I did find an inconsistent date or
two. My dates came directly from a tombstone or official court records so I believe I'm
Although the book gives a more complete listing, I'm going to send you the direct
lineage of our family so you can complete your records. (I hope the copyright laws for
cyberspace or lenient <*>)
"The Pound/Pounds family that lived in Hinds, Copiah, Lawrence, and Marion
Counties in Mississippi, as well as Washington and St. Tammany Parishes in Louisiana, were
all related and, no doubt, spring from the same South Carolina stem. The Daniel Pound who
lived and married in Pike County came to that area from Tennessee but was probably
related, distantly, to the people of the same name who had settled in close proximity
years before his arrival."
"The Pound family is not prolific in South Carolina, as in 1800 only two of the
name were enumerated on the census or that state, namely Peter in Orangeburg and John in
Greenville. However, in 1790 there was a John Pound and according to the census figures
not the same as the John in Greenville ten years later who lived with a family in Prince
George Parish, Georgetown Dist., SC. Since this family did not appear on the 1800 Census
(even though there is a possibility he moved on west), there is the possibility that he
died leaving a widow who remarried--and was thus unidentifiable at a later date."
"However, in 1810 two Pounds men, presumably brothers, reappear in what was part
of old Prince George Parish, then Marion Co., SC, named Isom (Isham) and Joseph. There is
little doubt that this is the Ishom who later moved to Marion County, Miss. then St.
Tammany Par., La., then to Hinds Co, Miss., and back to St. Tammany Par. after 1835. Most
of the older children of this Ishom declared to have been born in S.C."
Now the abbreviated version of the list. We're moving toward Margarette C.
"Grace" Pounds who married John Lott.
POUNDS, John (possibly father of these)
*** 1. Isom Pounds b. ca. 1775, d. in 1856 in La; married Margaret Parker, d. ca. 1861 in
Liberty Co., TX.
2. Joseph Pounds
3. William Pounds
4. --Pounds, a daughter
5. --Pounds, a daughter
*** Children of Isom Pounds and Margaret Parker:
1. Mary (Polly) Ann Pounds
2. A son prior to 1810, possibly Theodore
3. A daughter, name unknown, prior to 1810
4. Margaret L. Pounds
5. John J. Pounds
6. Isom Johnson Pounds (married sister to Elizabeth Keller)
*** 7. Joseph E. Pounds b. 1818, d. 1882 in Marion Co., Miss, also a Baptist
Minister, married in 1838 in St. Tammany Parish to Elizabeth
Kellar, sister to Sarah Matilda Keller (Isom's wife). Children:
*** a. Margaret C. Pounds b. 4/4/1839, married 10/11/1855 to John Lott
(They are buried in Oak Hill Cemetery. Her name is spelled Margarette I
b. Sophia Ardell Pounds
c. Johnson Bruce Pounds
d. Joseph L. Pounds
e. Henry Bonaparte Pounds
f. Sarah E. Pounds b. 1/11/1857 or 58 married ---Lott. (I completed her's because it
a connection to your HATHORNE family)
8. Minera Pounds (married brother to the Keller girls)
9. Elizabeth Ann Pounds
11.Robert M. Pounds
12.Andrew Jackson Pounds.
This is as far as the author goes but I've sent you Margarette and John Lott's children
already, which I believe are pretty reliable. Forget the info on Kirk and Edgar. Either
they were some other relative or nicknames for Margarette's brothers. Could have been from
other branches of Wylie Johnson's family because he told me he wasn't sure but thought
they were Margarette's brothers.
As I said, I'm sending the skeleton. If you want the rest, let me know. Our family
seemed to have a fixation on certain given names and liked to marry the in-laws!
NOW RECORDS ON KELLER family. This is Margarette Pounds' mother (Elizabeth Keller
Pounds) family. The immigrates were Daniel and Anna Margaret Keller with children John and
Philip, our ancestor. Jacob was born later. More about the immigrants after the following
"The Keller (Kellar) brothers and sisters, who married the Pounds
brothers and sisters had migrated into Marion County, Miss, from Orangeburg Co, S.C. in
the 1820s with their parents Philip and Lydia Keller. Shortly thereafter, they moved
further south to St. Tammany Parish, La. where Philip Keller, the father, died on April 9,
1834. Lidi'e (as spelled on one record) died about the same time. Her maiden name was
never discovered, but she was probably a Singletary. Philip and Lydia's children:
1. John Keller
*** 2. Henry Keller b. 5/9/1796 in Orangeburg, d. 1/31/1889 in Silbee, TX married
5/5/181 in Marion
County, MS to Sophia Page d. 1/2/1863 in St. Tammany Parish, daughter of Thomas and
Page (probably Lawrence County, Miss. Children of Henry and Sophia:
a. John Keller
b. William Keller
*** c. Elizabeth Keller b. 4/14/1819 d. 8/30/1873 married Joseph Edward Pounds
d. Martha Ann Keller
f. Henry K. Keller
g. Catherine Keller
h. Rachel P. Keller
"Philip Keller who died in St. Tammany in 1834 arrived in South
Carolina in 1766 at the age of two years. He, with his mother Anna Margaret, aged 28, and
older brother John, aged 8, came on the ship named the Belfast Packet. His father Daniel
Keller had arrived in the South Carolina colony prior to Oct. 1766, on the ship Britannia
which had embarked several months before from Amsterdam. Being Protestant and upon
accepting an invitation to Protestants from the South Carolina General Assembly in 1761,
Daniel had come to America. The S.C. Assembly had awarded Daniel 250 acres for his family
on 10/17/1766--Land which was later surveyed in the German settlement in Orangeburg
There is about a half page of info on their participation in the American
Revolution and property description. Seems Daniel was too old to fight but provided some
supplies to the Continental and Militia. John (who signed his name Johannas) served 78
days with General Francis Marion. Philip also served as a private in General Marion's

this is a good reason to be suspicious when we find a McLENDON in our research. May
be poor spelling!!
3. I may not have the correct name for Zuleima. Dan Lott gave her maiden
name as Zuleima Seval Corkern. Guess we can call Julie (McClendon) Law to find out.
My Uncle Thurrell and Julie talk occasionally, so he could put us in touch with her.
4. Joseph P. McClendon of Slidell sounds like he might be someone
we'd like to talk to. I'll try to e-mail him to see if he is connected with our Joseph
Parker McClendon. We always heard rumors about a possible third marriage for him. If
the Slidell Joe isn't from the Perry/McClendon union, maybe there was a second
marriage before Perry.
5. Concerning the death date on John Lott: Either I've gone dyslexic or
I've given John someone else's death date (maybe Joshua's, he could've been around in
1871). Dan gave me some dates and I gave him some. I'll check this out. As far as the
grave being John, Jr., I don't think so. For one thing, the birth date is John Sr and my
dad always said that the graves were grandma & grandpa. Also, Julia raised John Jr's
kids and they were younger than Chester Eugene (who was born in 1886). I'll check on this.
I bet someone gave me Joshua's death date for John's and I didn't double check closely
6. I'll be talking to Dan Lott soon. I'll give him your phone number and
7. I don't know about the McClintons or the Eldridge graves at Oak Hill.
I'll ask Dad if he knows who they are.
8. There are also a lot of Cowart graves at Oak Hill. These are related
through Leoter M. McClendon Cowart. I have those dates and will supply them if you want
9. Did you have information that gave Julia's birthdate as 1852? I'll
double checked the 1859 date against her gravestone.
Just wanted to tell you I'm really glad we're working on this together. It
helps to have another set of eyes (and mind) when recording all this info. I'll close for

Whew, didn't know how careless I am. I should have proofed my dates better. Your right,
the marriage date of John Lott and Margarette Pounds should be Oct. 11, 1855. In my
excitement guess I jumped a line when typing from my data sheets.
Look forward to hearing from you real soon.
I plan to eventually post a page listing all the info from tombstones
that I collected while visiting my family in Bogalusa, LA. Most are from that area, but I
also went to Purvis, MS.
