EVANS, GIEGER, HOUGH, MARTIN posted by Gerry A. Gieger on Sunday, August 22, 1999

Am looking for the burial site and cause of death for my gg- grandfather, James Samuel GIEGER, who was born in Covington County, MS on 27May1822. He was a Baptist preacher and the fourth child and third son of Jesse GIEGER and Tobitha MARTIN of Covington County. The Zachariah GIEGER Bible (http://www.websitewiz.com/genealogy/bibles/zgieger.htm) records his date of death as 23March1868. (Zachariah was Grandfather Samuel's oldest brother.) The site may be either MS or LA because his widow, gg-grandmother Louisa (HOUGH) GIEGER was living in Grant Parish, LA, with their five children when the 1870 US Census was taken. She married a Charles EVANS in Rapides Parish on 15July1871 but was widowed and living in Natchitoches when the 1880 US Census was taken. Will correspond with other researchers on these names.
