  • Notes 
    • Joseph William Echols, was the son of Joel Hubbard Echols & Sarah W. Anthony. Per his own testimony he was born in Pittsylvania County, Virginia in 1833.

      Joseph moved to DeSoto County, Missisisppi in July of 1849. He lived eight miles west of Senatobia for five years. In October of 1851, he joined the Old Salem Baptist Church and tried to live a Christian life from there on. Then he return to Virginia where he married Minerva Susan EASLEY on 5 SEP 1855. They had at least seven children together: Annie E., Joel P., Emma J., M. Ellen, Eula Lee, Willie Sue and infant.

      Soon after, he returned to DeSoto County, Mississippi to a land he described as: "country . . .divided into large plantations. Where were only a few settlements between my home and Helena. Neither were there any roads or cleared land west of Arkabutla."

      In 1860, Joseph enlisted to serve in the Civil War but after three months, he had to hire a substitute on account of bad health. He described his part of the country as "relatively quite during the war, though we were frightened pretty much at times."

      In 1869 Joseph moved to a place just west of Senatobia until he moved into town around 1907.

      In 1897, Joseph married his cousin, the widow Mary D. (nee Echols) Garrett HUNTER. This was Mary D's third marriage. Mary died on July 19th, 1902. Joseph married a final time to Nancy Juliet DEES. Juliet died onDecember 11th, 1917.

      Joseph died around 1927 and was buried next to his three wives in Bethesda Cemetery in Senatobia, Tate, Mississippi.
