Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired professional aerial photographer, and served the federal government as an aviation inspector, retiring in 2003. In legal terms, photographs are copyright protected, but this bio is your authority to use my Find-a-grave photos to share with family and use for purposes of genealogy without compensation.
For transfers, I try to follow the guidelines established by Find-a-grave. That is parent, grandparent and great,great grandparent. and child, grandchild and great,great grandchild. If you request a transfer, you need to identify your relation to the deceased
I am really enjoying working with Find-a-grave doing photo request for this area. I also plan to travel frequently walking cemeteries around the country fulfilling photo request in areas where nobody is doing it.

Al Robinson
Transfer Of Maintainance
Hello Lee Manning...
My name is Al Robinson and Elizabeth Chaddick Roberts was my 3rd Great Grandmother. Her daughter was Sarah Annie Roberts who is my Great, Great Grandmother through my father's side.
Was hoping that, if possible... that a transfer of maintenance on her profile page could be done to myself?
I visit Concord Cemetery frequently and make an effort to clean up the gravesites of many buried there.
Thank you!

Hello Mr. Manning
Hello there Mr. Lee Manning,

I am writing to you because I noticed that you maintain the findagrave profile for my grandfather, Marshall "Toupsie" Lafleur.

Do you know anything about Toupsie personally? From what I have been told (in family history) there are several facts and rumors.

One, is that he has has a Highway named after him in Kinder, Louisiana. (which I know is true.)

Other rumors are, that he is an "only child" or an adopted child. However, I have not been able to confirm or disprove this.

Also, I have heard that he has had an Honorary Award of Masonry by the Federal Government; (but our family doesn't quite know what that is?)

It would be great if you could get back to me on grandpa Marshall and these rumors! Our family has always wondered about Marshall and there is very little information about him, but only a few photos. (other than that he was married a few times?) I believe he married Pearl Langley, whom I am descended from ...

Thank-you in advance.

With kind regards,

Cody R. Reynolds

Amanda Catherine "Kate" Williams Burge
Note 1: Anthony L and Benita Burge: When JJ and Mary went to Texas to marry, they were with his sister, Caroline, and her intended Robert. Also along fo for the ride was Henderson and his intended, Amanda Williams (Henderson's first wife). They all made the trip by a horse drawn wagon, and were all married the same day by the Justice of the Peace at Newton, Texas on April 25, 1882. Newton is about twenty miles from Merryville as the crow flies. So at about 2 miles per hour it would have taken them around ten hours or so, not counting breaks or any hazards. It is a good bet that they all stayed in Newton after getting married and returned to Louisiana the next day.

The fifth child of Henderson Christopher Burge and Soloma Ann Slaydon was Henderson Christopher Burge, Jr. Henderson first married Amanda "Kate" Williams. Henderson and his intended, Amanda Williams (Henderson's first wife). went with his brother and sister all to get married. Kate died shortly after their son William Burge was born. they buried Kate in the Hyatt Cemetery, Fields, Beauregard Parish, Louisiana. She needs a better stone and her grave is hard to find. Kate's brother John, married Mandy Robertson who was a daughter of Mary Louisa Burge.

Note 2: Kate was 15 when she married H.C. and 17 when she died. H.C. was 24 when Kate died and left him with an infant son William Henderson Burge.

John James JJ Burge
Anthony L and Benita Burge: The fourth child of Henderson and Soloma Burge was John James JJ Burge. JJ married Mary Dowden Wiggins. On her marriage license she is listed as Miss Mary Wiggins. In fact, she waw married to Arthur Wiggins when JJ met her and had three Wiggins Children. After JJ died, Mary married Irvin Gray and moved to Beaumont and later to Houston, where she died.
When JJ and Mary went to Texas to marry, they were with his sister, Caroline, and her intended Robert. Also along fo for the ride was Henderson and his intended, Amanda Williams (Hendersons first wife)> They all made the trip by a horse drawn wagon, and were all married the same day by the Justice of the Peace at Newton, Texas on April 25, 1882. Newton is about twenty miles from Merryville as the crow flies. So at about 2 miles per hour it would have taken them around ten hours or so, not counting breaks or any hazards. It is a good bet that they all stayed in Newton after getting married and returned to Louisiana the next day.
JJ, like many of his peers of the day, worked in the timber business. Louisiana, at that time, was a boom for those who worked that industry, People from all over flocked to Louisiana for work. There are many stories about this era, but when they were through cutting, you could stand on a hill and see for miles People that worked this business got reputations and JJ had his. It is said that he was not one to fool with, that he had a quick temper.
JJ was shot and killed by his nephew. F.W Broadway on the 25th of June 1900. As the story goes, they all lived around the Old Place on Beckworth Creek. His two sons, Alfred and Preston, were playing around and turned over Mrs. Broadways laundry kettle, spilling her wash. She go upset and told FEW to do something about it. FEW was drinking pretty heavy that day and decided to talk to JJ about it. He told JJ that he would have to do something about those boys and JJ said that he would. Somewhere down the line the conversation turned into heated words. Mad, and in a rage, FEW went home and got his shotgun. He went back to JJs house, called him out and shot him as she was coming out the door. They buried JJ at Newlin Cemetery, Singer, Beauregard Parish, Louisiana. His tombstone reads in loving memory, your sons Alfred and Preston. I do not know what happened to F. W Broadway, but I suppose they took him to Lake Charles to stand trial. The Lake Charles Courthouse burned down and a lot of information was lost in that fire.
