Goodnough
In the Breckenridge Cemetery, there is a Susan Goodnough and Rollo Goodnough. The dates on Rollo's monument are not readable so I'm not sure it is the same person you are looking for. Can you confirm? Jamye

Wheeler Ford tomb in Metairie
We have finished walking the cemetery and didn't locate the tomb. If you called the celery and get a location we can go back and try to locate for you.

RE: W. C. Duval, Jr.
Andy, glad could help. Family is important and it's wonderful that you are tracing your roots. That's the reason that I volunteer to take pictures for those families that are really "families". Take care. Linda

Perry-O'Bryan Cemetery
I love all the wonderful pictures you've posted of the cemetery. I noticed that you created a memorial for Ophelia Emelite Broussard. I know the dates don't match but I'm positive she is the same person as Mrs J. A. Lemaire Broussard. I just checked the 1900 census and she (Ophelia) and her husband (listed as John A Braussard) were the parents of 11 children, and living with 10 of them at Moutons Cove, Vermillion parish, Louisiana. I don't mind deleting my memorial if you'd like to add the newspaper article from mine to yours with a note that her death date is inscribed incorrectly.

Thanks so much for the picture of Ruth Burleigh's tomb. Her grandmother, Sarah Jackson, should have also been buried in the same cemetery (McGowen) but she is not listed in the register. Did you happen to see a Sarah Jackson buried in Ruth Jackson's tomb?

Burial of Henrietta Dabney Sims with her children, Frank and Bessie
Thank you so much for posting burial stone of Henrietta Dabney Sims, my great aunt. It is an added bonus that Frank and Bessie's names are inscribed on the stone: Children who died as an infant. Thank you also for the transfer of Bessie, who I had no knowledge about!

Nathaniel Pope & Lucy Fox Graves
Hello!
I wished I could help, but I saw those graves in 1999, I can't remember the directions. But I can tell you they are on private property, and you need to ask permission from the owner to go see them. He has a home in the front, and you will have to walk maybe a half of a mile in a path well mowed, cross a little tiny creek, where there are some stones to walk on. The owner's father is buried at the end of the path, in a very nice mowed section with a bench. The graves are to your left, he will say that there are four graves, but two headstones and two foot stones. The black flies and ticks were bad in the summer. I looked on line at the William and Mary Quarterly, they say "near the crossing of Thompson & Louis roads." I hope this helps. I know someone who has GPS for the graves, I will sent them to you later...

RE: Charles J. Leeds
AFter you filed yoru request I checked with the cemetery. All Leeds are interred in Cypress Grove, and there are no Leeds in Greenwood. The location you provided was 8888, which means they cannot locate the specific burial site for that individual.

I recognized the name Leeds immediately because I have been in Cypress Grove many times. My in-laws are buried there. The Leeds tombs is very well known and is one of the more ornate (or used to be) and unique tombs in the cemetery. Some people have removed some of the metal from the tomb and sold it as scrap several years ago.

Somebody else has posted photos of all the Leeds previously, but I added my photos because I think they are clearer.

Charles Leeds apparently was a former mayor of New Orleans.

The people interred at that site are:


First Name Middle Name Last Name Suffix Age Date of Burial
Ruth Leeds 69 11/01/1942
Grace Leeds 76 04/05/1935
Edith Leeds 51 07/14/1911
Child Leeds Eustis sb 06/08/1914
Louise J. Eustis adt 09/23/1915
Josephine Leeds 85 07/22/1916
Ada Leeds 74 10/07/1939
Helen Leeds 69 01/01/1931
Mrs. O Leeds 74 06/18/1900
Walter Horn 51 03/15/1904
Charles J Leeds 75 07/08/1898
Thomas Leeds 36 06/27/1895
Louis J Eustis 22 09/17/1908
Mrs. Leeds Greenleaf 75 12/29/1909

How exciting - a Giles Brown Descendant
Hi Andy - You are my FIRST EVERRRR Giles & Harriet Brown descendant. Kind of funny, was working on the Giles line not long ago. Didn't really find anything new. Nice to meet you. If you are interested in attending the Rev. War marker dedication in September, please send me your name and address and I will forward to the Stonebridge DAR Chapter. Julie

Thanks for the correction. I've also transferred to you for management.

I've researched the early St. Louis families for several years, and created both a website and blog regarding the families.

You may find my Calvary Cemetery page interesting, with many thanks to my friend Connie for all the photos.

RE: Isaac and Amy Conkling Morse
You're very welcome for the photos. The inscriptions came from the book cited in the comment to the picture. The book was written in 1892 and may be found in the Library of Congress.
