  • Notes 
    • PARENTS: In the 1880 census, he reports that his father is fromMaryland, mother from Scotland

      His age suspiciously drops in the 1880 census. I expect having a new,young wife might have something to do with this.

      Ref: [,1970,gm1]

      John W. Tennyson was a doctor.

      According to a typescript produced maybe in the 1950's, the familycame to MS from KY in about 1850. The Tennysons (Tennisons) wereoriginally from the "old country" Wales. The first families settled inKentucky. Dr. John W. Tennyson was from Kentucky. His wife, AnnMalinda Biggers, was from Alabama. They lived in Kentucky about 10years before coming south. Dr J.W. and Ann M. Tennyson came toAlabama and stayed about 5 years, then came on to Mississippi,Pontotoc County about 1850. In 1856, the settled in ChoctawCounty.According to the 1880 census, J.W. Tennyson's father was fromMaryland and his mother was from Scotland. Subsequent research hasnot shown this story to be terribly accurate.
