Hi Pat,

I don't have much to help you but would like to suggest that perhaps DeSoto Co. and Marshall Co. might provide some new clues for you.

I descend from the Dabney family. My Dabney ancestress lived in DeSoto and Marshall Cos. (where she died). I noted that two of your Farmer descendents resided in those two counties.

My particular Dabney line does include an early Dabney-Anderson marriage: Dabney Minor to Ann Anderson in 1773. From there, the Dabney and Minors intermarried several times. My line came from Orange Co., VA through KY to MS.

I found no other records of Anderson Dabney or other Dabneys in Noxubee except one marriage entry:
A. W. Dabney to Mary E. Mahorner, 21 Oct. 1846. Married by Daniel McNair, M.G.

Anderson W. Dabney was a Senator from Noxubee Co. in 1846 and 1848.
