Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested in old graveyards, historical people, and geneaology. All combined make for interesting hobbies :) Families I am researching include: the Clintons, Bennetts, and Bramlett of Ark, Arnaud, Sloane, Green, Colvin, of LA. The heaviest interest I am researching is the Sloane family of St Landry Parish LA with all of the associated families....ex Burleigh, Woods, etc. Fleshman family is also a big deal.

I am US Navy stationed in Delaware. I am a Funeral Director and Embalmer and am military.

RE: Big Cane Cemeteries
We went and walked both Dubuisson Cem and Big Cane today. Sorry to say, but we didn't find any more Sloane or Fleshman headstones. You could try and contact the Big Cane Baptist Church and see if you can get a listing of this Cem. If you can get it if be happy to enter them. I have no idea who has the Dubuisson Cem. Not sure but I think say Landry Parish has a Historical Society or maybe the Lafayette Diocese has a list (if it is Catholic). Sorry we couldn't do more for you! I will say that Anna Lou Fleshman is in a plot big enough for two but there's only one headstone. I added a picture to her memorial. She buried between Pickett family members.

RE: Big Cane Cemeteries
Sloane, there are several cems in the area. You can take a look at them on the F.A.G. app. It's not the best app out there but it does a fairly good job of showing cems on a map.

I'll try and run out there one evening next week. I've been to the Dubuisson cem before, hubby has some family there. I'll go shoot the cem and upload the pics so you can see everyone there that has a headstone.

If you do a little research on the app you'll see other cems that are there and if you would like me to go let me know those too. You can look at the cems then click into them for their list of names.

You could search census records to see what their neighbors names were...sometimes neighbors went to the same churches...and in this area the last names can tell you a lot. The names you are looking for don't sound French (and therefore probably Catholic) and the area is predominately catholic (French and French Canadian origins). If you knew the religion that could help. But of course that's a best guess.

There are few (if any) community cemeteries there unless you go into Bunkie or some of the surrounding communities.

Hope I've helped (I certainly did cause more research!).

RE: Big Cane Cemeteries
Where would you like me to look? There's more than one cem in the Dubisson area.

RE: Big Cane Cemeteries
Good morning ~~

Feel free to contact me about cems and I'll do as much as I can. I'm like everyone else - I do cems as I can (I work full time) and I like to go places not too far from home. Dubisson is probably doable if you can send me to specific cemeteries rather than me just wandering around :)

I'll be happy to try for you if I can!

Sloanes of La.
I am researching Margaret Albinor Sloane married to William Hathorn. Their daughter, Marguerite Hathorn Hebert Vannoy married Joel Clay Vannoy (my GGGF) of St. Landry Parish. Would appreciate any further information you could send me such as marriage dates, places, burial, any other history and especially photos. Thanks, Alana
