I know that there are a number of Coker Family "Rooters" that may be looking
for a lost tribe.  A number of my family members left Abbeville County, SC in
the 1850s and headed for (what I understand) cheap land in MS.  I have talked
to a number of "Rooters" that had family members that did the same thing.  

Union country was formed in 1870 by taking parts of Tippah, Ponotoc, and Lee
County.  The following info came from the following web site:
