I recieved a shapefile from someone else which was projected in North American 1983 UTM Zone 16 N to which I have projected it to MS State Plane E US Ft but the extents of the shapefile are not coming in correctly and showing up in the pacific ocean due south of the project area. How do I change the extents to the extents of my other shapefiles so that they will show up in the correct location?

Attached is the two projections and extentions. The information on the first page is the projection information I recieved and the information on the second page is the projection I am working in.

Please help!
