Found this record pertaining to the Evans family in Adams county, MS. Not my family but all signs indicated they were for a time.
PAR Number 21084916 (Petition Analysis Record)
State: Mississippi Year: 1849
Location: Adams Location Type: County
Abstract: In May 1840, the Planters Bank of the State of Mississippi recovered a judgment against Eliza, Robert and Thomas Evans for $2274.45, which was levied on three slaves. The slaves were scheduled to be sold, but the Evanses did not deliver them up for sale; another judgment issued and was levied on a tract of land. The petitioners, as assignees of the bank, are owed "the balance of said judgment" and since the bank has been dissolved, they ask that "the property levied on, or so much thereof as is necessary to pay the balance of said judgment" be sold.

Ollie was born on 13 March 1881 and died on 30 May 1939 in Wellington, Sumner Co., KS. She raised 13 children. When I first started researching, I was told that some of the children were neighbor children who had lost their parents. As I did more research, I realized that some of the children were probably her sister's children. This narrative confirmed that all of the foster and adopted children were relatives, one from a cousin, and her sister's three children.
