Notes for Solomon Mangum from ancestry.com Posted 19 jul 2007 by GRNNYDONNA

On January 20, 1791, Solomon Mangum was listed as an orphan in Caswell County, North Carolina, at age 4, and was endentured to Martin Cooper, an uncle, as an apprentice.

The Mangum family left North Carolina between 1810-1812 and lived in St. Tammany's Parish, Louisiana, and in Columbia, Marion County, Mississippi, and finally settled at Cato, Rankin County, Mississippi.

Solomon was a ginwright by trade and lived alternately in Covington, Louisiana and Cato, Mississippi. He and wife Zillah Chapman Mangum are both buried in the Cato Cemetery, Rankin County, MS, four miles south of Highway 18, between Johns and White Oak, near the Cato Baptist Church.

Property

According to the Mortgage Book of St Tammany Parish, 1825-1831:

From: MANGUM, SOLOMON To: ROBERTSON, THOMAS B. DEED page 229

and

From: CHAPMAN, ZILLA To: DUNLAP (EXTR) MTGE page 200

Evidently Zilla had inherited land from her parents by that time.

Shared note

GOODSPEEDS abstracts page 404 says that Solomon was born in GA in 1787, Moved to Rankin Coo MS in 1812. Doesn't seem correct since his children were born in LA during the 1820s.

Shared note

S. H. Mangum, a native of Mississippi, born in 1837, is a well-known planter of this section, and his plantation which comprises one thousand and forty acres, with about two hundred acres admirably tilled, yields a fine crop of corn and cotton annually. His ideas in regard to agriculture are shrewd, practical and progressive, and a secret, no doubt, of his success is that his work is very congenial to his tastes. He takes great pride in keeping his plantation in admirable order, and everything about the place indicates his care and attention. He has erected a fine sawmill on his place, and the attention which he devotes to this industry and time he bestows on his plantation and in the raising and care of his stock, keeps him fully occupied. He is every respect a trustworthy gentleman, and the respect which is bestowed upon him by all who know him speaks volumes in his praise. He has taken much interest in the polities of the county and has been a member of the A. F. A. M. since 1856, at which time he became a member of Cato lodge No. 230. He was also a charter member of the grange, which he joined in 1875. On the 15th of December, 1867, he was married to Miss Minnie J. Martin, who was born in Mississippi in 1844, and their union has resulted in the birth of the following children: W. P., Nancy C, J. S. , E. L. , Emma and Augusta, all of whom are living. During the war he was a member of company D, Forty-sixth Mississippi infantry and served throughout the entire war. His parents, Solomon and Zilla (Chapman) Mangum, were born in Georgia and Kentucky respectively, the formers birth occurring in 1787. Their union was consummated in 1818 and resulted in the birth of nine children: G. W., Nancy C, Caroline, Eliza, William, Mary, Alfred, W. P. and S. H., of whom four are deceased. Solomon Mangum came to Mississippi in 1812 and located in Rankin county, where he died December 29, 1852, his widow surviving him until February 21, 1879, when she, too, passed away.
