  • Simons Genealogy, William H Criswell Family, (no longer online)reports birth in Mississippi. But census reports birth in Alabama,same for husband William. They lived in Attala County, Mississippi,and I think the compiler of the Simons genealogy took that asbirthplace.

    James was born in Alabama. His father was born in South Carolina. Itmakes sense with the westward progress of the family, as William's andMartha's families both moved on from Alabama to Mississippi, wherethey both grew up and then married. William and Martha moved fromMississippi to Arkansas.

    I am following the 1900 census report for birth in April 1840 inAlabama.

    According to the available information, Martha Jackson Criswell wasbearing children over a period of 25 years!  Her first child John wasborn in June 1867, and she had a total of 12 children, the last childJesse being born in September 1895!  This is quite unusual, but theinformation seems to be otherwise coherent.

    Martha is with William in the 1910 census, but William is a widower in1920.
