Descendants of Jack and Alice Conerly Gatlin
The surname Gatlin is common in Pike County, Mississippi. My research in this blog post relates to the Gatlin family of African lineage. Jack Gatlin and Alice Conerly Gatlin were thought to have been married in 1873 in Pike County, Mississippi. I have been unable to identify the parents of Jack Gatlin. The parents of Alice Conerly Gatlin were Jeremiah Conerly and Lethia . Her paternal grandparents were William Conerly and Harriet. It was the children from this union that some of the connections of other families were established. The Sartin, Gatlin, Downs, Caston, Magee and Brumfield families are linked together by matrimony from the children of Jack Gatlin and Alice Conerly Gatlin.
The information was gathered from several sources. I received a program from the late Roger Dale Wilson The First Jack and Alice Gatlin Reunion July 23, 1988. This program lists the known spouses and gives a brief biography of each of the children. The Pike County, Mississippi website: co.pike.ms.us , Ancestry.com and obituaries were my other sources. From these sources I was able to identify the ancestors of some of the spouses.
I have made prior blog posts about Edmond Downs, Thomas Brumfield, Liddie Brumfield Caston and Calvin Caston who are the parents of some of the Gatlin children spouses.
