Anything on Louis BASS a veteran of WWI. I beleive he was gassed or was the victim of the great flu epideminic, and succumed around 1922-1924. His family had a very large (yellow) house on or near 4th and Madison. I recall it was a rooming/boarding house. I know he had at least one brother who survived him. His Obit was in the Town Talk, in the form of a short story. He was romantically involved with Lillian GREMILLION whose parents resided on Monroe St.

AFFERMAN, FOWLER, KELLY, POTTER, TAYLOR posted by Michael J Afeman on Friday, May 9, 2003

Looking for any information on John Frederick Henry AFFERMAN. Best I can tell, he was born in Germany 1830, came to area near Lamourie, Louisiana in mid 1800's, paroled prisoner of war, co F, Hvy Arty, was a cooper and farmer, is shown in 1880 census shows him age 50, a farmer,living alone-single-Rapides Parish, married Nicey Virginia (Genny) Speight KELLY. In actuality, the marriage record did list her as TAYLOR but that name was marked through and followed by Kelly.10/31/1893--Rapides Parish. He apparantly died in the late 1890's or very early 1900's. Can't find any records of his death or burial. Family lore indicates that he lived on or near Bayou Lamourie and that he owned a plantation there (my grandfather, now deceased, stated that he went there as a child and that there was a sign that said Afeman or Afferman Plantation), and the his wife had to sell it or lost it for taxes to a gentleman by the name of Richard FOWLER (not sure if this name is correct) following his death. Some of this information came from her as she was much younger than him, remarried to Mr. William POTTER and lived until the mid 1900's. If this is true, it would have to be on of those plantations that remained following the destruction of the civil war. One particular story from a now deceased family member indicates that the plantation was Loyd Hall. When I email the various plantations in the area, I never get a response. It almost feels that there is some creepy aire of secrecy surrounding this individual. I want desperately to know more about my ancestors and their legacy (good or bad).
