      Wyona, I'm sorry I misspelled the name Treece, it should have been Trice.
      You see in My Uncle John Felix birth records, it said he was born at Trice,
      there was no town by the name of Trice, I researched this and researched.
      Post Office records, a Book on dead towns in Al.. then one day I was
      researching Jackson Co. Land Records and there was my Trice, Township 2
      South and Range 4 East and Section 9. William J. Trice. On the 1880
      Jackson Co. Census My Grandfather David Henry Landess and Family were
      listed in Vol.2, Beat 19 , James Trice could be found in same Vol. and Beat
      18. Uncle John Felix Landess was 6 mo. old. I have seen in records the name
      Treece, could they have been spelled Trice, also. My name Landess was
      spelled so many different ways. Back then the Birthplace was often listed
      with the Family they might be working for. Have you done research in the
      Jackson Co. Land Records? Hope you find your Family. Frances----- Original
