Hi, I'm seeking any information on a Berry Roper from Bibb county. In Sept 1850, he bought 139 acres in Itawamba county Mississippi but I find no records of him moving there. The land record says he was from Bibb county, Georgia and lived in Macon. I'm thinking maybe he bought that land and let his relatives farm it, maybe even his son. My ggggg grandfather was James F Roper. He moved in the area where the land was purchased from Alabama around that date and seemed to have lots more land than records show that he bought.
I don't see any Berry Roper on the 1850 census but I may have overlooked him. I did, however, see a Berry Rogers. This record clearly shows the name Roper though.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
