Most prestatehood settlers of Mississippi came from the older Southern states along the Atlantic seaboard. Some came from New England and a few colonial French families settled in the Biloxi area. Most of the settlers, however, were of Ulster Scottish, English, and northern European ancestry. Blacks outnumbered whites in Mississippi from the middle of the nineteenth century until the middle of the twentieth. Most of the Indians were gone by the late 1830s, but there are still a few thousand Choctaws living in east central Mississippi.

* Territorial and state censuses were taken at frequent intervals between 1792 and 1866 for various counties. Few are complete and the information in the censuses varies. For example, maiden names are included in the 1792 census. These censuses are available at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History and at the Family History Library (FHL film 899868-870), which can be accessed at http://www.mdah.state.ms.us/.
