Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest is in getting the local cemeteries catalogued, photographed, and listed on this site, with family links posted whenever possible. I'm especially eager to get photos of those headstones that are in danger of disappearing due to weather, neglect, or vandalism

If you notice errors on my submissions, please send me the corrections and I'll make them as soon as possible. If I manage a memorial for one of your relatives and you'd prefer to manage it yourself, let me know and I'll gladly turn it over to you. The only ones I won't transfer are my direct relatives.

I work full-time, but I'm happy to take photos on weekends when I can.

NOTE: If you ask me to include information on a memorial, please explain your sources. I've had people ask me to add information that was actually in error, and I'd prefer not to spread misinformation if at all possible. Thanks for understanding.

If you're requesting a transfer or adding information to a memorial, please use the EDIT tab on the memorial to send me the request/information. It makes it much easier to find which memorial you're talking about. Thank you.

Louis MOSS' middle names
Sorry. When i sent the edit I meant to put the two names (Henry Philip) as his double middle name. Instead I typed Henry as middle and philip as a MAIDEN name. Just sent you another correction. Sorry to double your work.

St. Ann's of Middletown
Barb, Hi Again

I have partially completed three cemeteries (all that I could read). I make a lot of errors when I do that but I wait for the families or others to make suggested corrections. 99% of those errors are omissions.

My next challenge is St, Annes of Middletown. The local historical society is starting to help too.

It is in the bio.

Names on Harriet Byrnes Tomb
Hi Barbara,

Harriet "Muz" Byrnes was my grandmother and I have been to her tomb in Metairie, LA. I am fairly new to genealogy and Find A Grave but have good information about my father's family.

From that information and others thru ANC I have, I believe, compiled the birth names of people on the Byrnes tomb. I have the names in Excel format, as well as in pdf format, and could email to you if you would like.

Your name comes up from time to time in my research so we might be related.

Fred Tatum, Jr. Information

Thank you so much for sending me information from Mr. Tatum's obituary. I have added it to his bio (Memorial# 69427542) and was also able to link his father's memorial.

RE: Rosa Perea
Jack and Rosa Munson Perea were my wife's uncle's parents (Jimmy Perea). Ann Labarre Perea was my wife's father's sister.

RE: Rosa Perea
It is sometimes difficult to pin point the location of a community when it is a river (Blind River).

The 1900 census shows Rosa was living in St. Tammany Parish, ward 1.

Thanks for questioning the edit.

Morris Sonnier.

RE: Rosa Perea
My source is Times-Picayune Newspaper obituary dated May 10, 1980, page 20. The obit states Rosa was a native of Blind River, Louisiana.

Wikipedia shows Blind River, LA:

Blind River is a waterway in southeastern Louisiana originating in the Maurepas Swamp Wildlife Management Area of St James Parish west of New Orleans and running northeasterly before turning east to flow into Lake Maurepas. The lower reaches of Blind River form the boundary between Livingston Parish on the north shore and St James and St. John the Baptist Parish on the south shore.

Blind River Chapel is located in Saint James Parish. If you have more detailed information as to where the Blind River Community was located in 1980, please let me know.

Hope this helps.
