My name is Erin Perkins Antley. I have lived in Union Parish my whole life and I have always been interested in genealogy and cemetery research. I have had the recent opportunity to travel throughout the southern US states and visited a few cemeteries along the way. I hope to contribute many more photo's!!|

Thank you, Erin, for the wonderful photos of the Stirling grave sites!!!
I'm thrilled to see these photos and have solid documentation of my G-G-G-Grandparents. I really appreciate your time and effort to take excellent photos of both markers and the larger photo showing their positioning adjacent to each other. You have truly made my day!!! : )

Hi Erin, thank you for contacting me. Joseph C Carter, b 1822 in Clarke County AL, was a younger brother to my 3rd grandfather, James Carter. They are listed together on the Ouachita 1850 census with their parents nearby. Joseph lived out his life in Union parish. I have that his first wife was Mary Leonard, b 1825 LA and died 1868 LA. Was her name also Sarah Leonard; do you know who her parents and siblings were. Thanks Erin!

|Nancy||Question for you|
If, in any of your visits to Union Parish cemeteries, will you keep an eye out for Nannie Landers? She was Nancy "Nannie" Pickel who married (Larche) L.W. Landers (1858-1922). For some reason he shares a headstone with his & Nannie's son Jesse Dewey in the Concord Cemetery in Marion, while the son's wife Maxine is buried in the Bernice Cemetery. But, I have Not been able to come across any burial info. for Nannie Landers. [Larche's 1st wife is buried in the same cemetery as her first husband over in West Monroe.] Nannie is Not in the alphabetic listing by name in any of the Union Parish cemeteries on the page for http://www.usgwarchives.net/la/union.htm - _but_, she Has to be buried somewhere in Union Parish. She was still living in Marion for the 1930 census. Her dates are: b. 30 Nov 1870 in Oakland, Union Parish - d. 28 May 1965 - so, she lived another 43 years after Larche died, but I have no idea where else she lived after the 1930 census.

What are your Pickel relatives. I've always hoped to find more Pickels in the area. As far as I know, my g'grandfather moved to the area with no other family members. There were only 3 sons in that family of Washington Jackson Pickel and Nancy Levenia Gulley. James Wright P. never married as far as I know - Judge (became John) married in St. Louis & lived there (2 sons, one never married & the other one I don't really know about, may have died young, or wound up in the Northwest) - and Jesse, my grandfather (2 sons, James A. & Jesse Jr.) James A. had 3 sons, one in Marion, one in Texas, & an unmarried one in Farmerville. Jesse Jr.'s son Jackie had only daughters. Is Joe a relative?

Made an error there: The family lived in the Oakland & Cherry Ridge areas when the siblings were born. I thing James Wright Pickel, the eldest, was born in Cherry Ridge - and the youngest, in Oakland.

Thank you so much for the search - very much appreciated. A number of years ago I went through that oldest part of the Farmerville Cemetery and realized how hard it would be to find anyone. IF a stone is still there and not broken, it's may be unreadable. I wonder if it's possible that his lodge had a separate cemetery or maybe a section in the older part of the Farmerville Cemetery: "The burial services were conducted according to the ritual of the Knights of Pythias order, Pelican Lodge of this place, of which the deceased was a member, attending to his interment." My cousin and I visited a couple of cemeteries up near the Arkansas state line a few years ago - the family lived in the Oakland & Cherry Hill area when the siblings were born - but, we didn't find anything (my brother & her father always said our g'g'parents were buried up there). When James Wright Pickel was born, his father had a store in Spearsville. I haven't found his name in the alpha listing (Index) for the Parish: http://www.usgwarchives.net/la/union/cemeteries.htm Again, I thank you so much for your efforts.
