  2. Sandra,
    I think I have an ancestor that hailed from the Lake Providence area. His name was Charles Morgan and he is shown in the 1850 Census as a planter with about 17 slaves. I found a map with a parcel designated as belonging to a C. Morgan, 450 acres southwest of Lake Providence. I think this must be his. Would like to compare notes about where and when he might appear in other records you have. My email is harveyw123@comcast.net. Please contact me.

    Thanks,

    Harvey Whitcomb
