Subject: [ROOTS-L] Benjamin and Ezekial Waldrop
Date: Mon, 28 Oct 2002 10:24:37 EST

Is there any disagreement on the Benjamin
Waldrop line?

If so, where is the disagreement?

Below Benjamin and Asley Waldrop who were with Green Berry (born 1791) in
County, Georgia in 1824 along with Bodie.

May I ask is my line is correct from Benjamin and Asley
Waldrop , Green Berry Waldrop (born 1791)
Joseph Ryan Waldrop (born 1826 in Alabama
or Mississippi, Mississippi was listed on census 1870) Green Berry was in
in 1823 listed purchasing land in Alabama
and then he went back to Georgia where
he was a Minister and purchased quite abit
of land in Harris, Muscogee and Talbot County
from the early 1830s to early 1840 then he
moved on to Ponotoc , Mississippi then over
to DeSoto, County until he died in 1854.
Joseph Ryan Waldrop is listed in his will
along with Henry Low, McDonald, Nancy
Caroline Waldrop Higginbottom,Joseph
Ryan Waldrop first wife Nancy and their
Children Georgia Ann Waldrop Thornton and
Stephen Franklin.

Rev. Green Berry(born 1791, died 1854)
traveled back and for according to Land
Deeds from the Carolinas to thru Gwenette,
Georgia, then Alabama back to Georgia,
back to Alabama then settled in DeSoto,
Mississippi where he died.
Families.....Heard, Thornton,Higginbottom, Scott, Thomas, Walkers and
My Baxters...Sarah Baxter Waldrop.
Dr. Joseph Ryan Waldrop was ambushed
shot and killed (August 13, 1870) by a shot gun twelve yards
away in Escatawpa, Alabama, Washington
County. The killer or killers were never found ,
it was ruled as radical murder.
This is where my Joseph Ryan Waldrop.
Information from the Mobile Register Newspaper dated August 16, 1870.
He was call the Hon. Joseph Waldrop
and Dr. Waldrop and has just finished a
term as State Rep. of Washington County,
I have not connected my Joseph R. Waldrop
with the Civil War Joseph R. Waldrop ,even
tho this JRW lived in North Mississipi where
my JRW lived. Nor have I connected my JRW
with the 1860 Tippah County , Mississippi
Dr. J. R. Waldrop, Physician.
My line is connected by oral family stories
where my Joseph Ryan Waldrop lived, had
another family in North Mississippi. The family
stories mention a first marriage, father was
a minister, family member thought of as a
son by first wife name Stephen who came to
visit him in Alabama 1867-1870. Stories mention Pontotoc, Canna, West Point
quite a bit of talk of DeSoto, Mississippi.
My aunt Louise Waldrop Jorgensen 1905-
2000 said her grandpapa Joe, went to school
in West Point , Mississippi.

I don't remember all the stories I heard as a
child, but I do remember the names of the
towns , I do remember West Point, DeSoto,
Pontotoc, where there is a plaque with Rev.
Green Berry's name on a highway with other
My connection with my Joseph Ryan Waldrop
is from 1866 on down. I have gathered information from Faye Waldrop Johnston,
(Ezekial) Green Berry Waldrop's wills
and other information along with Marshall
Waldrup(Major Washington Waldrop)

I was contacted a Waldrop family member
who was related to the 1860 Tippah County,
Mississippi , Physician with wife and four
children J. R. Waldrop, Physician. He said
he had heard this was the same JRW as mine
the State Rep. of Washington County, Ala.
But, I lost contact with him, before we could
confirm the connection.

personal comments.
