TAPLIN FAMILY HISTORY

Because a large number of our relatives first originated in the state of Mississippi, I thought you would like to know some of the history of Mississippi and relate it with the Taplin Family.


Mississippi's original inhabitants were the Choctaws, Chickasaws and Natchez Indian Tribes.  After a series of wars, treaties and time, these tribes scattered, integrated with the slaves and white people or became extinct with the exception of a small band of Choctaws remaining in Philadelphia, Mississippi.  On December 10, 1817, Mississippi became the 20th State of the Union.  Nathez was the capital, at present Jackson is the Capital in honor of General Andrew Jackson.

 

From 1830 to 1850 Mississippi grew into a wealthy cotton empire, bringing new people and commerce to the river cities, the Delta and Jackson.  During that time a large number of slaves were brought there.

 

On January 8, 1861, Mississippi became the second state to withdraw from the Union as the Civil War begun.  In 1870, Mississippi was readmitted to the Union. 

 

Our family history was compiled from information obtained in the oral tradition, that is to say, by word of mouth.  Several members of the Taplin Family did remember their life experiences and that which had been told to them by others.  Because this recording is based totally upon memory, which becomes less efficient with age, specific details (dates, places, names of persons and exact numbers) were difficult to remember.  Therefore, there may be some inaccuracies and gaps in our family tree.

 

Information can be corrected in coming years as we research more thoroughly our Family Heritage.  Exactly where and when our forefathers Nathan Torrance and our Mother Taplin (her first name in unknown) were born is unknown at this time.  We do know, however that they grew up and settled in or near St. Helena Parish-Magnolia, Mississippi to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

 

All of the original Tate and Taplin Children were raised on farms which they or their families owned in Louisiana and Mississippi.  They lived a very fulfilled life, but life on the farm was hard work.  On their farms they grew everything a family needed.  Cabbage, collards, corn, peas, potatoes, okra, turnips, sweet potatoes, strawberries, cucumbers, peanuts, watermelons, mush melons, figs, apples, pecans, hickory nuts, black, walnuts and cotton.  They, also, raised ducks, cows, hogs, and chickens.  They did not have to buy anything, nor did they suffer for anything.  Everything was home made from scratch, without the use of anything artificial, imitation or recipe books.  Food was never wasted.  They made their own milk, butter, lard, meal, flour, mayonnaise, jams, canned fruits and vegetables, molasses, cane syrup and cured meats.  Mothers spent their time washing, ironing, cooking, cleaning, taking care of the children and some had to work in the cotton fields.

 

The children in those days did not get the education children get today. 

The parents rented a one room vacant home with a stove, which was used as a class room.  Children had to walk 2-4 miles to and from school and only attended three months out of the year.  Most of our early ancestors completed the 8th grade or less.  Some did not go to school at all, or quit school to work on the farm or at other jobs.

 

Religion and church played an important role in our heritage.  Much time was spent in the home praying, studying the Bible and worshiping "God."  One had to travel, in some cases many miles on foot or on horse and buggy, to church.

 

Many of the families lived near one another and if not, visited each other frequently and usually attended the same church.  Grandparents lived with their children, and a child who’s parents died, was raised by another relative.  Children were often named after another family member.  Many relatives migrated to northern states in order to find better paying jobs or join husbands and other family members who had left the South. 

 

Jobs in the South for Black people were limited mostly to working on the plantation of the white people; even after slavery was outlawed in 1815.  Blacks during the post slavery years were paid little and expected to work hard  and follow the plantation owner’s orders.  Compared to the North, Detroit, Michigan, Blacks were able to acquire jobs in automobile factories or secure positions in the home of white persons.  Most of the first and second generations settled in six states; Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio, Missouri, Mississippi and Michigan.  Once someone moved North, they rarely returned home to visit.

 

Only a few members of the initial generations lived to be seventy years old or older.  Most died in their fifties and sixties from conditions, such as, flu, cerebral hemorrhage, heart trouble, cancer.  It was the custom to take relatives back for burial.  A train was chartered to carry the body and relatives South for funeral services.  Most of the Taplin Family lived in Boyles, Ruleville, Liberty Drey and Magnolia, Mississippi - Amite County.

 

Our known family genealogy starts with slavery in the name of Nathan Torrance and his union with our Mother Taplin (as stated before, her first name is unknown).  They had seven children - three (3) daughters: Emma, but the other daughters’ names are unknown; and (4) four sons: Joe, Marsh, William and Adam.  Nathan Torrance was married to Frances, and they had eleven (11) children (7 sons and 4 daughters).

 

Adam Taplin, an Indian, married Rachel Tate, a half white woman with long black hair.  She had one child from her first marriage.  They owned their own plantation in Liberty Mississippi, Amite County.  He lived to approximately seventy-five years and died from hernia cancer.  She died from heart trouble.
