Guntown, Mississippi Historical Events

1860 - about 1879
My Great Grandfather, Dr. George W. Tribble, went to Guntown in 1860 from Abbeville , South Carolina, with his bride, Mary Eliza Barmore. Having read parts of the diary of Samuel A. Agnew, cousin of George Tribble, we assumed that George followed his cousin to Guntown to begin his medical practice there. George joined the Confederate army as soon as the war began, serving as Assistant Surgeon. He was captured, released, and just before the war's end he returned to Guntown. He died September 15, 1879, and was buried at the old Bethany Church cemetery with three little children. His wife and five more children, including my grandfather, later went to Kentucky.
