Today I have posted a page of files from the James O. Eastland Collection regarding Displaced Persons Files.

L. J. Barksdale, James P. Graeber, Tom Laney, John W. McKee, and W. M. Yandell are all from Quitman County.

The Displaced Persons from Lativa that came to Quitman County were sponsored by Harvey Howze. They were skilled in woodworking and in 1949 launched the Latvia Furniture Manufacturing Company. To read more about this click here.

I am still researching Displaced Persons in the Mississippi Delta and will publish more about this later.
