Spring 2009 Issue of Itawamba Settlers Quarterly Nearing Completion

I have nearly finished the Spring 2009 issue of Itawamba Settlers quarterly magazine. I hope this issue proves to be interesting. Included in this edition are abstracts from Itawamba County Board of Police minutes from 1866, abstracts from 1911 editions of The Itawamba County News, a feature article about Itawamba County absentee landowner Dr. Stephen Duncan of Natchez, part two of slave data abstracts from early Itawamba County records, obituaries, a feature article about George Benich's War of 1812 pension and bounty land records, a biography of early Itawamba County clergyman Lee Compere, a missionary from England who came to the county from Jamaica and the Creek Nation in Georgia and Alabama, and much more devoted entirely to Itawamba County, Mississippi history and genealogy. The magazine should be printed within the next two weeks and mailed to the 2009 society membership and subscribing libraries during March.
