A Bit of Bateman History, contributed by: J.H. Neely

The following was written on a piece of paper by Alice Berry, my grandmother and given to my mother, Flora, probably in the 50's. It states:

'My mother's parents were Alexander Bush and Winnie Red Bush. Grandfather died (I think) in 1860. Grandmother died in 1891. They came to Mississippi from South Carolina when they were small. They were parents of ten children. David and Issac were killed in the war between the states. Their widows went to Texas with their parents. The girls were Marina, Samantha Elizabeth, Sabra and Mahaley, the other boys were Simpson and Alex. One died in infancy. They are all dead.'
