Welcome to Neshoba County, MS!

     I am LeFloris Lyon, coordinator for this county site. I hope you enjoy your visit and find the work of everyone, in addition to my efforts helpful. Please email me if you have any suggestions or contributions you would like to make (Webmaster).

     Neshoba County was formed from Choctaw Cession in 1833, as a result of the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek. Neshoba (originally Nashoba) is the Choctaw word for wolf. The county seat is Philadelphia.

     I am unable to do additional research on your families. I do not live in Neshoba County Mississippi and do not have access to records. I post everything that is contributed, for all to use. If you have a specific question about your ancestors or Neshoba County, please post a query on the query board or join the email list (instructions below). 

     Please check the links on the left. Those are your links to all of the information that is available on this site. Below are brief descriptions of those pages.

     "Addresses" is the page that you can find important addresses in Neshoba county. If you have corrections or additions, please send them to me.

     "Births"  begin in 1842 on "Submitted Births." There is also a page that will help you compute birth dates from cemetery records. Death records begin in 1847 on "Submitted Deaths." Records in Mississippi did not begin until 1921.

     The "Church" and "Cemetery" records are listings of all of the churches and cemeteries in Neshoba. I have many cemeteries online that have the names of people that are buried in them. Those are all listed in the links section under "Cemeteries." If you have records you'd like to add, please send them to me!

     "FAQ" are questions that I often get from researchers. I've answered them on line. If you have questions, check here first!

     "First Families" is where you can post your Neshoba family ancestor information. If your ancestor lived in Neshoba prior to 1900, you may send information to me to post. There is also a place to find and post Personal Genealogy Sites of Neshoba Researchers.


     "Marriages" are posted from 1877-1920. These are in several forms: By Groom, by Bride and by White/Black/Indian. You may also post your ancestor's marriage information if they were married in Neshoba and not listed in the index.

     The "Land Patents" records are land patents copied from the Government site. They are in alphabetical order by last name.

     The "Military Records" contain Civil War Rosters and information about individual soldiers.

     The "Resources" section is a page that contains resources available for the Neshoba researcher. It includes books for sale, helpful links and lookup volunteers.

     The "Surnames" page is where submitters can send the surnames they are researching. I post those names along with the submitter's email address.

     "Tips for Researchers" is a place for beginners to look to find where to begin research in Neshoba. If you have additional tips, please send them to me.


     Finally, the "Towns and Schools" section contains information on histories of Neshoba towns and communities. It also contains information about old schools and some pictures of the students.
