Roxie City Government

2002, February
We have a new Mayor: David Glen Whitehead. David, (Wife) Cindy, and (son) Chase, moved to Roxie from Dallas, TX to help take care of their elderly parents. David was elected mayor in June 2000 and has many plans to bring life back to Roxie. He has already received a $ 75,000.00 grant to fix and improve our 30 year old broken down sewer system and lagoon. Mayor Whitehead has plans for a new City Park for the Kids as well as the Elderly, a new pool, sidewalks, restoration of our old town buildings, and much much more. Mayor Whitehead has also commissioned a Flag to be created for the town.

John Weatherly born 1792 in Georgia and died in Roxie Feb 23, 1853 Married in 1813 in Jefferson County Mississippi to Nancy born 1796 in GA or S.Carolina and died Feb 17, 1845. They had an 80 acre home place on which they are buried near the edge of the Homochitto Forest. I am trying to locate the graves so I can make sure they are still marked. John and Nancy Weatherly were my GGgrandparents.
