RE: Andrew Booth
Hi David, I had responded to your question but I don't see it here.

Anyway that was the only Booth I could locate, and it's more of a scattering plot.

There was no one at the office so I couldn't get any additional information or records to verify this was the correct plot.

I hope that helps the family.

I plan to continue contributing and hopefully do much better.

Mary Elizabeth Walker Martin

My great grandmother, Lizzie Walker Martin, was born on 26 May 1847 and died on 13 Nov 1896. I notice that her birth date is missing from your sketch. I thank you so very much for photographing her gravestone at Boggs Cemetery.

The photo you have posted was one long sought after and generously shared with us by two great granddaughters of Lizzie Walker Martin--Sue Wise Lynn and Barbara Smiley Miers, who owns the original photograph.

This past week I was able to discover a photo of a young Mary Elizabeth Walker. This photo is one handed down through Lizzie's two sisters, who left Bossier Parish for California in the 1870s. Would you like to post it to your Find-a-Grave site?

Again my thanks to you for the picture of her grave.

RE: Andrew Booth
Hi David that was the only marking on the plot that I could find. And there was no one working to verify any records. Would have loved to find more at this site but again no one working that could help with registry. Hopefully you'll see more from me as this is a passion of mine. Thank you, Holly

Cléophas Mire
Hello, David,
First, thank you for all the postings on Find-A-Grave! Bravo!

I do have a question about the information posted for Cléophas Mire. This appears on the Find-A-Grave site:
Birth: Sep. 24, 1846
Death: Apr. 8, 1941

Pvt 6th Field Battery LA Light Artillery C.S.A.
Proud Confederate Soldier

Mire, C., Pvt. 6th Field Batty. (Grosse Tete Flying Arty.) La. Lt. Arty. Appears on Roll of Prisoners of War, Paroled Natchitoches, La., June 6, 1865. Res. St. James Par., La.

My question regards the statement "Appears on Roll of Prisoners of War, Paroled Natchitoches, La., June 6, 1865." Can you cite a source for that? I have copies of his two pension applications (1906, rejected; 1914, accepted) and in both he says he was never a prisoner of war. I'm curious about the apparent contradiction.

Thanks, in advance, for any information.

Excuse me, my last message should say Winborn. Originally, I was guessing the name "Winny" used in the diary was a nickname for Winford like in my own family, and I keep accidentally saying Winford even though I know it is Winborn.

Winford Theodore Lawton
I saw you manage the memorial for him and I had a question. Are you certain he is the one who served in South Carolina? Or is it possible he served in Georgia? I ask because a long time ago my mother bought me some books at a garage sale in Shreveport. One was the prayer book for a Civil War captain (who appears to not be directly related as it stands now). The other was an old wooden scrapbook that had hand-typed pages in it that appeared to be a woman's Civil War diary. Obviously the woman who wrote it originally did not type it, but someone else did at a later date (I am thinking 1930s-50s right now, but I haven't dated the scrapbook just yet), but it seems to be an authentic account from the Civil War. The woman never mentions her own name, mostly her kids' names and neighbors. Anyway, I started working on figuring out who it was again and I determined that it was a Narcissa Lawton from Thomas County, Georgia. She had a son named Winborn T. Lawton, born in South Carolina in 1843. I thought he might be this Winborn that you manage the memorial for, since this Winborn moved to Louisiana and it would explain how the scrapook came to be here, but this Winborn was the 2nd Georgia Cavalry. He did have uncles, cousins, etc named Winborn Lawton, too, some in South Carolina, and I was wondering if it is possible that this Winborn buried in Ida is the one from Georgia and possibly the soldier records for the one in South Carolina is his uncle or another relative. Any help you can offer is appreciated. I believe I have talked to you before about my ancestor who died in Mansfield. Thank you.

James M "Jim" Burnett
Hope you can help with this. There are several of us gravers looking for information on a James M. "Jim" Burnett that most likely was a confederate soldier from Claiborne Parish, Louisiana. He had an older brother, William T Burnett, and a younger brother, Covington H Burnett, that for certain served in the Civil War. The father of these brothers is the Robert Hightower Burnett that is buried in the Gilgal Cemetery in Claiborne Parish, Louisiana. The information we have on the memorial is all that we could find on Jim Burnett and the death date could be incorrect. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

No, I am sorry. I am not related to Mr. Agaisse. I went through the cemetery and shot photos of the headstones. The cem didn't have many people listed in Find A Grave and by the time I was done it had many, many more. I took pictures of headstones of lots of people I didn't know. I'm sorry I couldn't help!

John K. Lamerick, Find A Grave Memorial# 10727361
Do you have any information on this John K. Lamerick? The photo of his tombstone has no dates. I am trying to determine if there was another man with the same name or if this is one man with conflicting dates of death. There is a J. K. Lamerick in Shreveport in the 1870 census. Then I found a newspaper article in 1890 that said John K Lamerick had died during the war. You have his date of death as 1866. If you can shed any light on this man, please contact me at annette.bowen at

Thank you.

James Monroe Dixon
Do you have any information on a confederate soldier by the name of James Monroe Dixon? He was born September 1827 in East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, and died as a prisoner in a Union military hospital in May of 1863 in Franklin Parish, Louisiana. His family had a plantation in Wilson/Clinton, E.F. parish Louisiana called the Carruth Plantation. I have been trying to locate where he might be buried.
Any help is greatly appreciated. I am related by way of his wife, Emily Elizabeth Dalrymple. She later married a William Allen Tharp of Natchitoches, Louisiana, where he is buried.

Gabriel Rudolphus Washington Corley, CSA
I am the great-grandson of "Dolph" Corley and the manager of the FInd-A-Grave Corley-Harrison Cemetery located not far away. I own and live on, by inheritance, the original property that Dolph once owned. It is the original property his father, Col Edmund Thomas Corley obtained when he came to Texas from Tennessee.

I would like very much to manage and add to the memorial for him as I am the family historian and author of "Harrison and Corley, Shelby Co., Texas" published in 1988.

Thank you for your consideration.

George B Harrison
