I am looking for the decendants of LEAH EVELYN HARVEY?
She lived around Lewisville, Madison County,Mississippi,during the years of 1888 thru 1900 she was associated with a school teacher name D.I.Minor and he came from ohio maybe before 1888 as far as no that couldn't be .

uh... I am cut/pasting from familysearch.org (and not listing all persons)
this is not a boarding house, the persons are all shown as pupils in a school.
This extract comes from the 1880 census, so yes, it is correct that it was prior to 1888.
The particulars of this note that Leah is Mulatto (most of the students are shown as Black), but it does not indicate anything regarding the place of birth of her parents. Since Leah's birth is 1867, it is understandable why she may not have known this information.
The school is shown as in Livingston, Madison county.

The information I have is the 1880 Census. Leah was listed as 13 yrs old and a student. The heads of household were D.I. and L.J. Miner. There were 24 people listed at the residence, which indicates the Miner's ran a boarding house.
I'd be glad to search a little further if you wish.
Good job Wendy C

How old was Leah when she lived in Mississippi, and where was she actually born, could you edit your question and give this information if you know it. It would help the researcher to help you.
