    • (1) THE 1845 MISSISSIPPI STATE CENSUS OF TIPPAH COUNTY <http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mscivilw/1845.txt>:

      This census was submited August 19, 1845 and shows a white population of 11,669 persons. It is presented here as on the original, except that some spellings have been changed to conform to those presently in use ("Luney" to "Luna" "Meaks" to Meeks", etc.). This census gives a fair indication of the communities these people lived in, and by presenting it in its original order we can establish each family's neighbors and possibly show more closely the biological relationships involved. . . .
