The Pascagoula River Valley includes Jackson County, Mississippi, and George County, which was part of Jackson County for a century. The existing written and legendary material on this region has been brought together in the first volume of this set, entitled History, Story, and Legend of the Pascagoula Country, which covers the history of the territory up to 1817. Part I of Volume II (History and Genealogy of the Pascagoula River Country) covers additional history of the region, from 1812 to 1960. Part II of Volume II, over half the book, is devoted to genealogy: names of immigrants coming into the region, the census of 1850, families of 1860, cemetery records, and Bible records. Three courthouse fires in Jackson County make this volume particularly valuable as a source of genealogical records.
