On the east side, going north, was the Haynes hotel, back of which one block was the Shuqualak Academy (Capt. Darricutt, teacher); McNeese’s blacksmith shop (Pete Beasley, slave, his blacksmith); McNeese’s wood shop (Nathan and Marshall McNeese, slaves, the workmen); Sam Jackson’s wagon-making establishment, Stout’s private boarding house, and 200 yards farther north, McNeese’s saw mill.

  1. I am so glad to see that my great uncle history along with my great grandfather Nathan mcneese life and history is finally reserved. I have photos of Nathan mcneese and history of him being the founder of
    Church in Jackson TN as well as a carpenter. I am writing the history of our family.

  2. Fatina, that’s so cool that you have a photo of Nathan! Do you know if your family has any photos of Marshall? Any information y’all want to add to the site would be extremely valuable, as I haven’t been able to find much about him so far.
