My grandmother's brother, "Uncle Tal", married to Roxie Lindsey Mitchell. Uncle Tal died in the late 1960's. He is buried with Roxie and his so "J.T." who passed away in the 1930's. Tal was the baby of his family and lived in Claiborne parish before moving to Saline where he spent the rest of his life. He worked in the timber industry until his health declined.

I loved visiting him and Aunt Roxie in the country of rural Bienville parish. My fondest memory is coaxing doodle bugs out of their holes under their house and around the huge oak tree in their yard. Uncle Tal refused to call me anything but "Jonette" still a family joke today. I remember going to my grandmother's the day he died so my mom and her siblings could break the news to her.
