The Hathorn Family

The Hathorn Family of Covington County, MS

To date in this line, Isaac and Mahala Hathorn are the beginning of the Hathorn line. I am currently researching probate records and freedmen bureau labor contracts to locate them prior to the 1870 census.

Associated Surnames:



  1. Hi, I am a member of the Johnson Family of Prentiss, MS, and I have been checking censuses and we have a George Hathorn listed on the 1910 Census residing in Beat 1, Jefferson Davis, MS. He is living with my Johnson family. Is he your relative as well?

    • Hi, It is great to find someone researching in this small community that seems to have stretched across the US. George Hathorn listed in the 1910 census with your Johnson family is not one of my Hathorns (at least not this far in my research). He is from a group of children living without parents as listed in the 1900 census of about the same area. The oldest brother, Julius, is head of the household.
