  1. I would like the see the trail my great-great grandfather would have likely taken in 1852/1853 as he left Yazoo MS as a Mulatto teenager to journey north. He was released by his father from the Swayze homestead (Richard Swayze being his father)and went north to Crittenden County KY. Was there a trail associated with the Underground Railroad that traversed that area in the early 1850s?

    • Thanks for your post, Kimberly. I don’t know the history of the Underground Railroad through Yazoo County, but I bet Ricks Memorial Library or the Yazoo Historical Society would have some information. It would be interesting to learn about. You could call the library at 662-746-5557. We hope you’ll get to join us on the #YazooBackroads virtual tour tomorrow and Friday.

  2. Yes, I have contacted Ricks Memorial Library in the past. Staff offered to me info regarding the Swayze family. I will contact them regarding the Underground Railroad. Thanks much!
