    1860 US Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA
    1860 US Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA
    This page of the Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi shows a family headed by Martha Harrell who were all born in North Carolina. The accompanying Slave Schedule shows that Martha owned one slave - a 13 year old female. The Marriage Records (see Source 6) show that Harriett Harrel married George Lynch in 1866. The 1870 Census shows George Lynch and his wife Harriett and Harriet is 22 years old and says she was born in South Carolina.

    So there’s a good likelihood that the 13 female slave owned by Martha Harrell in 1860 is the Harriett Harrel who married George Lynch in 1866.
    1860 US Slave Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA
    1860 Slave Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA
    This image shows Martha Harroll owned 1 slave - a 13 year old female. On the assumption that the slave took her owner’s name on emancipation and became Harrell, this then is quite likely the Harriet Harrell who married George Lynch in 1866 (see Source 7). It seems like the family had recently moved from North Carolina to Mississippi (the 1 year old child in the household was born in North Carolina). This ties in with Harriet’s statements in the 1910 and 1930 Census that she was born in North Carolina, and that her parents were born in North Carolina. In 1870 she said she was born in South Carolina, and in 1880 and 1900 she said she was born in Mississippi.
    1870 US Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA
    1870 US Census for Hazelhurst, Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA

    And next but one family down page is that of Hampton Tillman, his wife Eliza who is sister of George Lynch, and their 5 children
    1880 US Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA
    1880 US Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA
    1880 Census for Martinsville, Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA shows at bottom of first page and top of second page Hampton Tillman (Widower) and his 8 children, a step daughter in law, and his mother in law lving adjacent to George Lynch, his wife Harriet and their 8 children. George is probably, but not proven, the son of Sarah Lynch.
    1900 US Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA
    1900 US Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA
    1900 Census for Mt Hope Voting Precinct shows Harriet Lynch living with her children Tom, Jim and Mattie. In this same census, her husband George has responded that he is widowed, and is living alone in Beat 3 of Copiah Co., Mississippi.
    1910 US Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA
    1910 Census for Copiah Co., Mississippi, USA
    1910 Census for Beat 4 (part of) shows John Lynch living with his wife Mary and their 5 children - Oliver, Johnnie, Wiley, Andrew and Mattie. Also living with them is Harriet Lynch - John’s mother. Of interest is that later in the census period, Wiley is living with his grandfather Georgy Lynch at a different location.

  • Notes 
    • Race/Color:
      1870 - Black
      1880 - Black
      1900 - Black
      1910 - Black
      1930 - Neg

      1900 Census entry for husband George Lynch indicates he was widowed, but Harriet is alive in 1900, 1910 and 1930 Censuses:
      1900 - Head of household with her 3 youngest children Jim, Tom and Mattie
      1910 - listed as Mother in household of son John, his wife Mary and 5 children
      1920 - not found
      1930 - listed as mother-in-law in household of daughter Ida, her husband Barney Lewis and their 2 children

      The 1860 Census for Copiah County, Mississippi shows a dwelling/family of:
      Martha Harrell aged 35 born North Carolina
      Edwin Harrell aged 16 born North Carolina
      James Harrell aged 14 born North Carolina
      Ann Harrell aged 12 born North Carolina
      Joseph Harrell aged 10 born North Carolina
      Mary Harrell aged 6 born North Carolina
      Frances Harrell aged 1 born North Carolina

      So this family has just recently moved from North Carolina since the youngest child was born in North Carolina.

      The 1860 Slave Census shows that Martha Harroll owned 1 slave - a 13 year old Female so it seems a good likelihood that the 13 year old Slave is this Harriett Harrell who married George Lynch in 1866. [3, 4, 5, 6, 8]
