I have tried for several years to find ancestor information about my ggrandfather Solon D. Phillips who died in 1902 in Lauderdale County. His mother was Hester or Ester Phillips who died in 1900 in Lauderdale County. Both moved to Lauderdale County from Wayne County, TN sometime before 1900. Any help, however small, would be appreciated.

Researching Jordan Trousdale who was a slave in Lauderdale County. He died around 1902/1903 and is buried in the Jordan Cemetery. He married Elmyrah/Elmira Jordan and had several children. For some unknown reason their children used the Jordan surname rather than Trousdale. Looking for any info that will help fill in the story of his life in the county.
