Synopsis: From a plantation ledger, an abandoned graveyard, a fragile manuscript, and old newspapers, author Mary Helen Griffin Halloran has raised the bones of her ancestors and made them come alive in this memoir that traces the history of five generations of her Mississippi family. In A Mississippi Family, Halloran has painted a backdrop to the life the family lived. The story begins with the life and times of three men: Jonas Griffin (1762-1815), his son Francis Griffin (1800-1865), and his son Judge John Bettis Griffin (1826-1903). It ends with portraits of two remarkable women, Judge John's daughters, Mary Lane Griffin (1858-1942) and Helen Knight Griffin (1864-1949). The stories of these five people, whose fates and values shaped the lives of their children, capture the early history of the Mississippi Delta, Warren and Washington Counties, and the town of Greenville. Telling tales of river journeys and life on southern plantations, Halloran's meticulous research has provided a record of her fascinating family saga at a crucial period in the history of the county, state, and nation.

About the Author: Mary Helen Griffin Halloran was raised in Greenville, Mississippi, and earned degrees from Sophie Newcomb College of Tulane University and Duke University. After teaching literature and writing in Wisconsin, she moved to Fort Myers, Florida. Halloran left Mississippi at eighteen and returned forty-five years later to unearth her family history.
