  1. Donna, are you aware the Causey and Cossey’s have a common grandfather? My
    DNA, with Family Tree DNA, is a match with the William Causey descendants of Amite Co., MS removed from NC. William established a plantation there before 1810 from his grant from the Rev. War. My Cossey’s are from Hardin and Wayne Counties, TN and Lauderdale County, AL. I’ve been working on my genealogy since 1978 when we lived in St. Louis and I was on the Corporate staff of Southwestern Bell Telecompany. I’m a pioneer from Oklahoma relocated to Plano, Texas in 1985 due to divestiture. I retired from SBC Wireless/Cingular/AT&T Wireless in 1999 to Canton, Texas east of Dallas about 60 miles. A friend, peer and pioneer, Dave Roach of Oklahoma referred me to you. Thanks for what you do. Regards, Lamar
