Notes:

  • Per the 1880 Census entry above, it appears that Robert and Calvin are step-brothers to Henry. There must be an interesting story here.

 

8. Calvin H. Durham (b. c. 1873)
 

Notes:

  • Per the 1880 Census entry above, it appears that Robert and Calvin are step-brothers to Henry.

 
Notes:
  • Solomon was probably born in Fayette Co. GA. He, along with his brother William, went to the Chickasaw County, MS area in the late 1840's.  He was in Sparta on the 1870 Chickasaw Co census. In August 1873 he and his brother were court commissioners in Colfax Co (formerly Chickasaw, soon to become Clay County), MS.

  • Elizabeth Durham is listed as a widow in 1880, so Solomon died between 1873 and 1880.
