“Dulaneys of Itawamba County”
The three Dulaney brothers of John, Alfred and Gilbert arrived in Itawamba County around 1833 along with their mother, Rhoda Thrasher Dulaney, widow of Thomas. John, the oldest brother, was born in South Carolina while Alfred and Gilbert both were born in Tennessee. In addition to their sons, Thomas and Rhoda had two daughters, Elizabeth and Nancy. Thomas and Rhoda were South Carolina natives who married about 1802 and moved to Lincoln County, Tennessee before 1808. There, we find records of Thomas serving as a constable and as a captain of the 2nd Regiment of the Tennessee Militia. Following the War of 1812, Thomas and Rhoda moved their family to Alabama where family legend indicates that Thomas was killed in 1829 when his gun accidentally discharged while visiting relatives in St. Clair County.

The three Dulaney brothers have hundreds of descendents in Itawamba County today. Their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren intermarried with many families, including McNeece, Senter, Wilemon, Chilcoat, Johnson, Moxley, Brown, Hood, Warren, Tucker, Robinson, Works, Digby and many others.
Documenting the Complete History of our Family
The “Dulaneys of Itawamba County” have a proud and rich history. The task of documenting this history is a daunting task; however we are making great progress. Please help us show a complete picture by adding your family’s pictures and memorabilia, to the Dulaney family Database.
Scanners, Computers & Copiers, as well as operators, will be setup the day of the reunion. Please bring all your family’s old pictures, letters, and memorabilia so they can find their rightful place in the “Dulaneys of Itawamba County” history.
NOTE: If it is an old picture that was taken in Itawamba County or ancestors of Itawamba County settlers you can bet it fits with Dulaney genealogy, as well as old home place pictures. So be careful in discarding what might be useful! Your pictures and Letters will be entered on the spot and it will only take seconds to process. This will ensure the safety of your precious memories.

You have chosen a "special day" for my 2 brothers, sister and me - our father, Leon Stone, was born 109 years ago Aug. 29, 1900 in Bexar. His mother, Leona Kathryn Robinson Stone is a descendant or related somehow to the same Robinson family that you claim.

We miss our dad very much; he died Sept. 9, 1957. If I am recovering from my surgery on the 14th, I will bake his favorite cake, Coconut, and eat a slice and wish glad tidings to all the Dulaney's. bettye

Hi Don.
My name is Tina Wright. My grandmother is Emil Mae Johnson Franks Blackard. She is the daughter of Oscar and Ethel Dulaney Johnson. She is currently living in Lonoke, Arkansas. I was wondering if there are any plans for a reunion in the near future. Would love to be able to bring her to it. Thanks you. :)
