      Rueben McLemore prepared a two page typescript (undated) titled "McLemore History." He writes that "Richard McLemore was born in Virginia, Sept. 21, 1798. He married Nancy Perry Hill, also of Virginia, and in 1831 he moved into what is now Lauderdale County. Here he bought several thousand acres--the entire region of Meridian and Marionpppand built his home...To McLemore and Nany Hill were born two sons, Joshua and Caleb; and seven daughters, Mary, Nancy, Martha, Lavina, Sarah, Charity and Juriah. Sarah McLemore, the sixth child, was born in 1833. Her birth is the first recorded white birth in Lauderdale county. After the death of Nancy Hill McLemore in 1858, Mr. McLemore married Catherine E. Carter, and after her death, Isabella Ann Roberson. He died Aug. 11, 1881....The old family Bible, from which most of the information in this article was taken, is being kept at the home of Meridian businessman, T. J. McLemore, a great-grandson of Richard McLemore. There are, of course, no children of this Meridian pioneer living today, however, two grandchildren still make their homes in Lauderdale county. They are Mrs. Silas THOMPSON and Mrs. Sally McNEALEY, both of Bonita. "
