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.

Is it okay to use your photo on my family tree provided I cite you as the photographer? Thanks.

RE: Rene Amedee DeRussy
Thanks, he was one of their heroes. His comrades called him and a few others the "the little Captains" because of their bravery in a tough battle.

RE: Bertha Torregrossa Champagne
Barbara, I am probably wrong about the death place of Henry Champagne, he may have died in Gonzales, La. I DO KNOW his parents were Joseph Florien Champagne Sr. and Marguerite Joyeuse Lemaire. Joseph Florien Champagne Sr. was born to Francois Champagne Jr. and Sidalise Troxler. I Visited St. Charles Borromeo Cemetery in Destrahan and found their headstones on the ground. I do have dates, I Copied off of the headstones if you need them. Their daughter Elvina Champagne Hymel married to Arthur Hymel Sr. were my gg-grandparents. I could not locate the graves of Elvina Champagne and Arthur Hymel Sr. I live in Ca. and have not been to Louisiana for several years. Arthur Hymel Sr. sister was Caroline Hymel Champagne married to Francois Oscar Champagne, they had Heloise Champagne mother of Bertha Torregrossa Champagne. Have not found graves of Caroline Hymel and Francois Oscar Champagne Sr. Would like any information you have. If I CAN be of any help to you please let me know.

RE: Bertha Torregrossa Champagne
Barbara I WOULD love to have a copy, I was told by a cousin that she and her husband Henry Champagne died in Sorrento, La. a town near Baton Rouge, La. There Son Robert Erb Champagne was living there, I do have Robert Erb Champagne buried in Ascension Parish, La.

Rene Amedee DeRussy
Hi, Rene Amedee DeRussy is buried in Greenwood Cemetery in New Orleans. The source is "Mortuary Notice", Paper: Times-Picayune (New Orleans, LA), November 16, 1909, p. 8,
Many names on the plaques at the tomb of the Army of Tennessee, Louisiana Division, Metairie Cemetery are listed there because they were dues paying members of the association and were thus being honored not necessarily because their remains are there. Many are listed there that are not buried there.
Another source is Wier, Jerry Johnson, Army of Tennessee Louisiana Division, The Association and Tumulus, p. 15 showing he is "buried in Greenwood Cemetery".
Thank you very much for your work in honoring these veterans of the Civil War.
