CATER posted by John Caskey on Friday, June 27, 2003

A John Chain CATER is buried in Alexandria National Cemetery. He was born September 19, 1886 and died April 26, 1951. I believe him to be the son of my ancestral cousin, John Chain CATER, Sr. This family was originally from the Pensacola, Florida area. Some member of this line provided information to some family researchers in the early part of the twentieth century. I hope that John Chain Cater's descendants may have some family Bible or some other kind of family record. Thanks for any assitance you may be able to provide.

BIRNEY, BURNEY posted by Shirley on Monday, July 7, 2003

Looking for any information on John BURNEY/BIRNEY, who was in the Rapides area from the mid-1790's until his death--which we believe was in the early 1800's. John Burney, according to family lore was a legislator from Rapides, who was murdered by an enslaved servant. Are there any Rapides Poste records available in the Alexandria area are were all records destroyed in 1864?

FLINT, LUNENBURG, MCWATERS, PICKENS posted by Suellen Armitage Eyre on Sunday, July 13, 2003

A list of sugar plantations in Louisiana is found in New Orleans Genesis, V 3, #10, March 1964. A list shows:
" LUNENBURG Platation, MCWATERS & FLINT, 1852-1853; Rapides, Bayou Robert - R.R.; R.S"
"Lunenburg, MCWATERS, J.A.; Bayou Robert, R.R., R.S., Rapides 1850-1852."
"Lunenburg, Bayou Robert, R.R.; R.S.; PICKENS, John O., 1858-1859, Rapides"
"Lunenburg, Bayou Robert R.R., R.S., MCWATERS, J.A., 1853-1858, Rapides"
"Lunenburg, PICKENS, John O., Bayou Boeuf, Rapides, 1858-1859"
Can anyone explain this? (R.R. & R.S., etc) Where was Lunenburg exactly?
Do the names refer to the owners? If so, why are there several different names? I am especially interested in J.A. MCWATERS.

KING, ROBERTSON posted by Martel Ardoin on Saturday, July 26, 2003

I am doing research on my wife's KING family. Any information on Albert KING who resided in Rapides Parish with wife Mary Jane ROBERTSON and is buried at Science Hill Cemetary near Glenmora will be greatly appreciated. The 1880 Vernon Parish census showed the family living in that parish. The census reveals that Albert was born in Louisiana while his father was from England and mother was from Georgia. Albert married Mary in 1861 in Jefferson, Mississippi.
