ALDRIDGE, ARLEDGE posted by Joy Moore on Friday, April 5, 2002

Looking for the children of Isham ARLEDGE/ALDRIDGE and his wife Dovie and for second wife Malinda. Any help is appreciated. They were in Bienville in 1850.
All of the rest of the family, Allen and Jonathon Arledge moved to Rapides Parish and are on the 1860 census but we have nothing further on Isham. Believe he died and his children, all but one being girls moved and married with the rest of the family

DAVIS, GREEN, JOHNSON posted by Lucretia Johnson-Tate on Thursday, April 25, 2002

I am looking for some information about my great grandfather. I knew him as Harvey JOHNSON, b March 25, 1900, (he died July 1990). From my understanding he came from Shangaloo, Lousiana. He had a brother named Amos Green and three sisters Queen Harris, Mamie and Tummi last names are unknown. Harvey moved to Stamps, Arkansas and married Ethel DAVIS. On April 29,1928 they had their first son Leon Johnson and over the next one and a half to two decades they had fifteen children which included two sets of twins. It has been said that Harveys father last name was GREEN so therefore my family is trying to find out if our last name is Johnson or Green. Harvey never of his parent, and my grandfather (Leon Johnson) said he never met his grandparents so therefore he don't know their names or what they look like, but it has also been said that Harveys mother name was Florence.

DOHERTY, PURSER, WELCH posted by Teri Welch on Sunday, May 5, 2002

Seeking info from anyone about Augusuts C. WELCH,Annie Eliza PURSER WELCH, Warren Wadsworth WELCH, Kate Pearl DOHERTY WELCH. They lived between Bunkie and Cheneyville at Carey's Bridge (Carey's Lane?) In addition to the 11 children that A.C. 'Dock' Welch and Annie Welch had, they 'took in' other children - I believe as many as 13. My father was W.A.Welch, referred to up there as 'little A.C.' after his grandfather. They had a farm, country store, blacksmith shop. I also understand that when Dock moved to La. from Miss. his cousin also moved and bought another farm near his. Looking for any information and have lots to share, including photos, old documents, etc.

DAVIS, EASON posted by Mary Davis on Wednesday, May 8, 2002

I am searching for the death date and cemetery where George DAVIS was buried. According to the book, Four Centuries on the Pascagoula" by Cyril Cain, George DAVIS and his wife Rebecca (EASON) and children moved from Ocean Springs, Mississippi to Alexandria, Louisiana, but during this move when the boat landed at Alexandria, George died of cholera and was buried there with Masonic ceremonies. His children were Martha Ann, Samel Francis, Sabrey Ann, William Barnebus, James Simeon, Sary Ann and George W. born in January 1852. Mr. Cain also said that after his death the family moved to Texas about 1854. So he must have died between 1852-1854. Could someone tell me if the Masonic records have been kept for that period of time?

ABADIE, GROVES, HOLBROOK, MASTEN, STONE posted by Dawn George on Thursday, May 23, 2002

I am searching for any info about Inez MASTEN ABADIE who was my gg-grandmother. She was originally from Lake Charles, LA. She was married to Joseph ABADIE,SR. and they lived in Pineville, LA. They had a son Joseph, Jr. who died at a young age and two daughters, Gladys ABADIE GROVES and Margaret ABADIE HOLBROOK. Inez MASTEN ABADIE passed away when she was only 26 years old from the influenza epidemic. Joseph ABADIE, SR. and JR. and Gladys ABADIE GROVES are buried in Mt. Olivet cemetery but Inez MASTEN ABADIE is not. Inez's parents were Horace MASTEN and Alice STONE MASTEN and I found the cemetery in Lake Charles where they are buried as well as a son Fred MASTEN but I have been unable to find Inez. I am hoping that someone out there might know of another "first name" she might have been known by other than Inez.
