Ms. Windham,
Please disregard my previous request for photos at the Evergreen Memorial Gardens cemetery. I just noticed that the Evergreen Memorial Gardens cemetery has over 10,500 graves, you would be there all day looking for a grave site to take a photo. I would not ask anyone to do that. Thank you anyway.

Ms. Windham,
Thank you very much for placing the grave photo on the Walter (Walker) Kimbrel grave.

If you are ever in the Evergreen Memorial Gardens cemetery taking photos of graves, I would appreciate it very much if you would take grave photos and post them on the Memorial Pages of my Uncle Leroy Kimbrel 31982125, Aunt Leila Kimbrel 31982124 and their two daughters, cousin Vivian Louise Kimbrel Blackshear 31978406 and cousin Quida Ann Kimbrel Blackshear, Alldridge 31982425.

If you have time. Thank you very much for all of your work with Find A Grave.

Ms. Windham,
If you would, please place copies of the bottom two photos of the graves that you placed on Ellen Virginia (Ligon) Kimbrel 32281935 onto her husband James Walker Kimbrel Find-A-Grave 32281934 page as well.
I believe that there is enough of his half of the grave marker to represent him sufficiently don't you? Thank you very much Ms. Windham.

RE: Louise Radecker
Wow, Caroline,

That is a fascinating story, I take it William Patrick Radecker was Louise's husband, and that he associated with the Collier family.

You are correct, it is a weird situation. Stories like those are what makes genealogy so fascinating, particularly for those who were not directly affected by some ancestor's actions.

RE: Louise Radecker

Now you got me looking. The Hypolite Rivoire buried at Greenwood died in 1891 and was 1 month old, which means he could not have been your great grandfather unless he was more prolific than we can imagine.

The only adults listed as interred at the Greenwood site are Marie Rivoire, who died in 1920 at age 54, which would make her birthdate circa 1866; and Louise Radecker, aged 63, born circa 1890.

Ulysis was 1 at the time of his death, and Joseph was 7.

These must have been either children or grandchildren of the Hypolite Rivoire at St. Bernard.

According to her obituaary, Louise Rivoire Radecker was the daughter of Hypolite Rivoire and Maria Sagniguet, Sister of J. L. Rivoire, George V. Rivoire, Mrs. J. Clay (all of Breaux Bridge); Charles A. Rivoire of Lafayette; Henry E. Rivoire of St. Martinsville; Mr. K. Durio of Opelousas; and Mrs. S. Davis of Gramercy. No husband was listed.

I could not find an obit on either Marie Rivoire.

I do wonder however, if the Marie Rivoire at Greenwood is not the actual spouse of Hypolite Rivoire. There is only a 6 year age difference between the two. The Marie Rivoire at St. Bernard is 24 years younger. Of course he could have been married twice to somebody named Marie (which is a common name), since the maiden names are different.

RE: Louise Radecker
Oh, I looked at St. Bernard Cemetery in St. bernard Parish, not Breaux Bridge.

RE: Louise Radecker

You have me totally confused.

I do not work the St. Bernard Cemetery and would have no access to their database. The names I sent you previously were from Greenwood Cemetery. I checked with the listing for St. Bernard Cemetery and there is no Radecker listed as interred there.

The Louise Radecker gravesite is located at 10 Willow Cedar Aloe. There are other Radeckers' located throughout Greenwood, many of which I have included at your request. There are still some remaining. There are no other Louise Radecker listed at Greenwood.

Louise Radecker is the only Radecker listed as interred in that plot, which belongs to the H Rivoire family.

The link you provided was for Louise Radecker and contained the photo I posted yesterday. I am not quite sure what you are asking. I do not believe there are any Radeckers' or Rivoires' at St. Bernard. I believe the information I provided contains the actual burial location of Louise and other Rivoire family members. I posted photos for everybody listed at that site, which is why I provided the list.

I hope that answered your question. If not, let me know.
