Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy Librarian by profession. It is a goal of mine to have a Findagrave site for each of my relatives. I'm hooked! I've loved cemeteries since I was a child and lead tours each year of our city cemetery. If there is any information you would like to add to any of the memorials I have done, just let me know! I want the memorials to be as complete as possible, so the more information, the better the memorial! Each one I put up is a person who lived, breathed and died. I want to honor their existance. If the memorial is within Findagrave transfer guidelines, I would be happy to transfer. I am currently documenting the burials of Pine Grove Baptist Church Cemetery in LaSalle Parish, LA. All of those Smith and Edwards people are my family!

Hi Lora,

Thank you for posting information about my husband's Grandfather, John Thomas Ball. Do you know if the Chief Tusquahome Chapter D.A.R. take pictures of the headstones when they record them for publications? I know there isn't one there now, but would love to get a copy if they did.

Again, thank you for all the reseach you do. It means so much to the families trying to locate where their family members are buried.

G. Abbott
Rev. Joseph Willis
If you are interested in him (your memorial is the original, but a duplicate is there, too) I am reading through material I have collected for years, and a hint from a friend on, trying to get this family sorted out.

No one seems interested in compiling it, or understanding how these family groups tie. I am a descendant, I think of this Rev. Joseph, who is the son of Agerton, who is the son of one of the Rev. John Willises, but I can't confirm which John Willis.

I am not an member, so, not building a tree there. I just love history, and mysteries solved.

I compiled an e-mail to you with my right-brained research. This is my last try to get someone who can understand it. I am not publishing a book. I am hoping that with the links in this family, I can find something to break down the brick wall, hiding my ancestor's origin. Neither LDS, Ancestry, or any other source can find it in 30 years +. So, hoping for a clue to my Abbott who married a Willis in this line, and maybe a cemetery link will help. Not asking for a link, just hoping someone will read enough about this group, merge the memorials, after reading through material, or confer with each other to get a baseline.

I think it takes a true love of history or science, to be willing to read/re-read and then, research to prove a theory.

Let me know if you want to read my "stuff."

Hi Lora,

Harvey is linked to his brother, B F Varner (Jr). Please remove the father link.

Hi Lora,

Martha Ann Atkins Varner was B. F.'s mother, not his wife. Please make the correction.

Descendants of Louise White Coleman
I am trying to forward the following information from Facebook to any descendants of Louise White Coleman or her sister Peggy White:

My fiancÚ Malvin found a bunch of stuff from the 20's in a old shed on hwy. 107 in pineville, including 2 diaries. So I got a new project, finding the family of the writer and giving the diaries to them. So I need the help of FB. The writer is Louise Augusta white from Jena, la and she mentions Peggy Joyce white being born in sept. 10th 1929. So what I'm asking of u all is to see if u know this family and if not share the post so I can find the family, I'm sure they would love 2 have this. PLEASE SHARE THIS POST.

This was posted by Taylor Smith on November 4, 2013.
I don't have any updated info on this posting but I would be happy to help the family make contact with this lady. (I'm a genealogist and know how precious these old documents can be to a family.)
