The excellent collection of articles entitled MOTHER MONROE by Dr. W.A. Evans including PIONEER TIMES IN MONROE COUNTY by W.B. Wilkes and WHO’S WHO IN MONROE COUNTY CEMETERIES by Dr. W.A. Evans is an invaluable source of information for genealogy research into early families of northeast Mississippi. The articles, which originally appeared in the Aberdeen Examiner, 1936 – 1938, were republished by Mother Monroe Publishing Company in 1979. Many early Monroe County, Mississippi families later removed into Itawamba County, after its formation in 1836, therefore the reader will recognize many early Itawamba pioneer names in this excellent work.
