Headstone indexed in 1956 by the General William Carroll Chapter DAR for the book, "Louisiana Tombstone Inscriptions: Volume VI East and West Carroll Parishes and Some Records From Ouachita Parish", page 139.
Month and year of death estimated from transcription of age.
His first name was transcribed as E.D.W., but I believe that he is William Edward "Eddie" Archibald, son of Edward and Elizabeth Byrd Archibald. He is shown with his parents on the 1860 Carroll Parish census as William E. with his parents and 4 year old sister Josephine.
On the 1870 Carroll Parish census, he is in the household of Michael and Elizabeth Gingery with sister Josephine (indexed as Joseph). Edw. was short for Edward.
His sister Josephine married John Cortes Bass and is buried in the Lake Providence Cemetery.
