    • The following information is not sourced or verified by me. It has been extracted from various public member trees on
      John Broom was born in Fairfield County, South Carolina about 1795 and moved to Lawrence County, Mississippi before 1820. He can be found there in the census for Lawrence County in 1820. He is on the 1830 census in Covington County, Mississippi. Covington was formed from parts of Lawrence and Wayne Counties. All John's children were still living with him on the 1830 census except Amy who had married William M. Pace and moved next door to her father, so the Broom family were all still in Covington County in 1830. John had four children in 1820 three boys and a girl. Luke was the oldest born in Fairfield County, South Carolina about 1813 followed by Amy born in Fairfield County about 1814. Hardy was born about 1817 probably in Lawrence County, Mississippi, but could have been born in South Carolina or on the way to Mississippi from South Carolina. Some family stories say he may have been born on the way to Mississippi. Finally James was born in Lawrence/Covington County in 1820. John had nine children in 1830. Seven boys and a girl at home and one daughter, Amy, married and moved out of the house. Elizabeth was born in 1830 and was the only girl at home at that time. Six of the seven boys are Luke born about 1813, Hardy born about 1817, James born 1820, probably William H. and Wade (not sure of their birth dates), and Thomas who was 4 at the time. The seventh boy is unidentified. He would have probably been under the age of 4. Alexander and Merridith were born after 1830. Perhaps the seventh boy could be one of them. Four of John's children were born before 1820 and five of them were born between 1820 and 1830. Two of John's children seemed to have been born in the 1830's and one may have been born in 1840. Giving him a total of 12 children. All of these children were born in either Fairfield County, South Carolina or Lawrence/Covington Counties, Mississippi as he is in Lawrence/Covington Counties on every census from 1820-1840. He cannot be located in the 1850 census. Two of John's children had moved to Marion County by 1850, Luke and his family and Amy and her family as they are on the 1850 census for Marion County. The rest of the family seemed to migrate that way as many of them were living in Marion County in 1860 including John's widow Courtney Broom.
