      Comment: There are several changes from 1860 to 1870. Nancy A.   Wooley Glisson is not listed in the 1870 census and may have died between 1866-70. Thus, we are not likely to see any more children. America Ann Glisson Cotton is back in the household, has a child, and may be a widow, or simply visiting.  James Wilburn is still at home after the war, and unmarried.  Clarisa E. (Ellen?), Allen L. (Louis?), and Sarah A.  are no longer in the household.  Hughey, Hillary, and Narcissus have been born since 1860.  Catharine and Elizabeth are still at home.
    The Tiny or or Tina that Mrs. Robinson remembers may   have been the same as Elizabeth or Caroline or could have been an entirely different individual. The narrative by Ollie  Glisson (following) states that besides Mirica Ann, Ellen, and Wilburn, there were eight other children, or a total of 11, with Narcissus presumably being the youngest.  We can account for only 10, which may mean Tina was different from Elizabeth or Caroline.
    In Fairmount Cemetery there is a gravestone labeled "L.G. Glisson, Co. G, 6th Miss. Regt., CSA."  There are no dates on this marker. Would this, perhaps, be Louis?  If it is, why is he not listed in the two censuses?
    Around the year 1930 or earlier, I remember seeing an old man toddling around Mize with a cane.  I was told he was Louis Glisson, and that he was a Civil War veteran. He visited our neighbor Lauren Glisson, and my memory or understanding was that he was either the father  or brother of Lauren. Was this Louis Glisson the same as  L.G. Glisson, Civil War veteran, on the Fairmount grave marker? Was L.G. a brother of Wilburn Glisson? Is Allen L. Glisson another person altogether? Someone more inside the Glisson family than I perhaps can provide answers to the distinction between L.G. and Allen L. Glisson, and between Tina or Tiny and Elizabeth, Sarah A., and Caroline Glisson.
    The 11 children of Levin & Nancy Glisson as stated by Ollie Glisson should be accounted for as to names, birth and death dates, marriages, burial places, and other relevant information. Resolution is  also needed of differences in the narrative attributed to Ollie Glisson and certain facts attested to by the censuses and by certain grave markers. Where are Levin and Nancy Glisson and other Glissons buried?  Are their graves marked? This would perhaps be best known by the descendants of those 11 children, and would be most useful in constructing a family history of the Mississippi or Smith County branch of the Glisson and allied families. [Lauren Glisson's daughter, Mae Glisson, married Virgil Hopkins, my father's younger brother. ]

     4. The following narrative is attributed to Oliver Glisson, son of James Wilburn Glisson and Cynthia Ellen Lack Glisson, obviously with the help of someone else.  It apparently was presented at a family reunion some years, after 1900 (it was typed, which may mean it was prepared as late as about 1970).  Although it's written in the first person, it occasionally lapses into the third person, indicating that at least parts of it were paraphrased by someone transcribing from Ollie's oral statement. This suggests he may have been too old to write it himself. Ollie lived into his 90s):

                                                                    The Glisson Family-by Ollie Glisson
    "Levin Glisson, progenitor of the Glisson family, now living in the southern part of Smith County, came from North Carolina in 1848.  He left North Carolina with his wife, the former Miss Nancy Wooley, and three children, Mirica Ann, Ellen, and Wilburn. Eight more children were born to them in Mississippi.
    "There were three families in the party from North Carolina. They traveled in three ox-carts, each drawn by a single ox. The other two families were Jeff Wooley and Louis Gill.
    "All three families first settled at Shongelo, in north Smith County. The Glissons stayed there only about three months. Then they moved to a homestead four miles south of the present site of Raleigh.  After a short time, they moved to the present home of Ollie Glisson, three miles north of Mize on St. Ealy Creek, near a large spring.
    "Today, I only have time to talk in detail about one of the children, Wilburn Glisson, who is one of the surviving veterans of the War Between the States.
    "Mr. Glisson says that only two families lived near their home: the Sam Hopkins and the Sam Pittifers. He also says there was plenty of game for food. The only necessity, bread, was ground from corn at a mill six miles from their home.
    "When Wilburn was 16 years old, his father was called into service in the Civil War.  Wilburn felt that his father should be at home with the family, so he volunteered to go in his place as a soldier in the Confederate Army. He was in Bill Maxie's company and Armstrong's Regiment. He fought in four battles: Oxford, Mississippi; Rome, Georgia; Pensacola, Florida, and Blakney, Alabama.
    "Soon after his enlistment, the family wrote to Wilburn telling him that a new baby was expected. He wrote back  telling them that if it was a boy he'd like him named William Hillary, and if it was a girl: Narcissus.
    "The baby was a boy and he was named William Hillary. But in the last battle, Wilburn was captured and held in prison on Ship Island for thirty-eight days, guarded by negroes. While he was in prison, a second baby was born, a girl, who was named Narcissus. So both names were used before he returned.
    "Wilburn was never wounded in the war but at the Battle of Rome, Georgia, his belt was shot from around him and his clothes were set on fire by the bullet.
    "When he was captured, his mule was taken and naturally he never saw it again. When he was released in Vicksburg, he walked home, swimming the Pearl River on the way.
    "Upon his return, he married Miss Cynthia Ellen Lack and they took over the original home and reared four children; Ollie and Fate Glisson, Mrs. Ada Jones, and Mrs. Ida Robinson.
    "Wilburn Glisson was illiterate but he was a very successful farm manager. This enabled him to give his children many opportunities he never had. He is now living a peaceful life in the home where he was born."*

 [*Note: This conflicts with first paragraph, which says that Wilburn and his two older sisters were born prior to the family's  arrival in Mississippi. The 1860 census says Wilburn and Mirica Ann, were born in Mississippi, and that Ellen -- whose first name apparently was Clarisa -- was born in Alabama. Since Clarisa Ellen apparently was born as early as about 1843, it's possible the family left North Carolina earlier than 1848, as stated, and may have lived in Alabama before coming to Mississippi. It's more likely that they were in Mississippi by about 1845 or 1846, though  Mirica Ann, or America Ann, could have been born in Shongelo or the homesite 4 miles south of Raleigh, particularly if the family stayed in either place long enough to raise a crop]

The following information was supplied  by Chesley Caroline Hopkins Tuggle (now Mozingo), who copied it from a Bible, at the time (middle 1960s) in the possession of one of Mrs. Eula  Glisson McDonnieal (wife of S.H. McDonnieal), believed to be the daughter of Lafayette Glisson, then living in Summerland.

     {I believe the above were twins born to Martha Ann Charity Hopkins Lack and her husband Lafayette J. Lack, and that they were stillborn or died soon after birth. This is based on the following statement from a letter to me by Mary Ida Glisson Robinson on 8 Jan 1966 (actually penned by her daughter-in-law Hazel Robinson): "My mother and daddy had eight babies who died as infants. They had two sets of twins. One of them lived a few days. Grandmother Lack also had twins who died, and are buried on the Jones farm where Great Grandfather Samuel, Grandmother Lack,  (and) my eight brothers and sisters were buried. I have heard said our folks wanted to build a church there is the reason the graveyard was started there."]
