This book is a MUST for those doing research in the state of Mississippi. Considering the very limited amount of research data in printed form on the state, makes this one very sought out research tool. The records within this book cover the entire state, and not just the burned counties. The cases herein indexed and abstracted pertain to Will, Administration, Property Settlement, Guardianship, and Divorce cases. What makes this book so important is that: as shown by the chart included in this book, many records were destroyed in courthouse fires. Except for the data contained in the files of the High Court sent up from the Probate Courts of these counties, there is nothing left of these early records. The wills included in this volume, filed with High Court, are copies of the original wills and, in many instances, constitute the only existing evidence of family connections and relationships.

I am the author of this book (Adrianne Fortenberry Criminger) and somehow this summary is not correct nor do I know of someone named Mary Hendrix. The book is currently out of print but will hopefully be reprinted soon.
