MCWATERS and FLINT: Hi, everyone. I am looking for any and all information concerning the Mcwaters and Flint families during the 1800's, and also information about the Lunenburg Plantation on Bayou Boeuf. My g-g-g-grandfather was J.A. MCWATERS. He was married to Martha Elizabeth FLINT, and at one time they were the owners of Lunenburg. During the civil war, J.A. MCWATERS was a Lieutenant Colonel in the 2nd LA. Regiment, and was killed on January 14, 1863, defending the gunboat "Cotton" on Bayou Teche. A son, James Flint MCWATERS, migrated to Texas either during or right after the war. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My grandmother, Eula BODINE was born in Boyce City June 1890. She was the daughter of Robert Thomas BODINE & Emma Phillips. They had been living in Marshall, Texas the year before and a younger daughter was born then. It seems they only were in Boyce City for one year then moved back to Marshall and 2 more daughters were born. Anyone have any information on this family? Would love to know if there is a birth certificate for Eula?

CONNELLA, WRIGHT posted by Stacey on Tuesday, July 26, 2005

Seeking information on John Levin Knox CONNELLA, born abt 1840. His wife, Jessie Bruce Edgar CONNELLA, is buried in Old Rapides Cemetery along with one of his sons, Walter Scott Connella, and two of his daughters, Louise Connella and Maud Connella WRIGHT. No sign of JL's grave. We are seeking specifics as to the year of his death, whether he still lived near Alexandria at the time of his death, and most importantly, where he might be buried. He lived many years in Ouachita Parish, but moved to Rapides Parish (lived on the Red River). He was living in Caldwell Parish (Columbia) at the time of Jessie's death in 1901, and reportedly moved back to Alexandria a few years later. He was still living there by 1915 when his brother, Charles Allison Connella, was murdered in Ouachita Parish (West Monroe). Thanks for any help!
