Gathings is not all that common of a name, so we might be distantly related. I do have a couple of "Johns" in my background but yours and other given names are not familar. Going "way back" the name was spelled "Gaythings" in the early 1700's(glad it was changed) My father had a 2nd cousin -E.C. Gathings who for many years was a U.S. Rep. from Ark. My maternal GM was Jane Winifred Gathings of Chickasaw Cty, Ms

Your grandfather was my mother's uncle, I have emailed you but so far no response. My mother is still alive and lives in Tunica, Miss. Her father's name was Isaiah Gathings and her grandfather name was Primus or Primas Gathing.

Hi John,
I read your reply to Marva Gathings about Primas. Could he have possibly migrated from Monroe Co. MS. I have a gggrandfather, Green Gathings that listed one of his children as Primas or Primus Gathings. Any connection? please e-mail me at

Hi Ms. Gathings,
I was delighted to read your response. We are certain that Primus Gathings did live in Monroe County, MS in a town called Prairie Village or Prairie Station and later moved to Coahoma, MS (Lula Township). According to the 1920 Federal Census for the State of Mississippi, we have a Primus Gathings listed as head of household age 58 living with his family. Could he possibly be Greene's son? If so, then he is my ggggrandfather whom I've been searching for, but I was struggling because none of the living relatives knew Primus father name. In April of 2002, I located decendants of my ggrandfather(Primus Gathings). If any of this information sounds similar, please reply to the following e-mails:
