|Bio and Links|
Born/raised in Mer Rouge, Louisiana. Lived in Southern California for 30 years and have now returned to Morehouse Parish. Since I was little, I've been facinated by the 1922 cold case of Filmore Watt Daniel/Thomas Fletcher Richard. Their deaths/aftermath helped prevent the growth of the KKK in the 20's.|
I'm happy to share what KKK info I have with anyone else. From the Family History Club, I have:
"The Murders of Mer Rouge" by John Rogers
"The 20th Century KKK in Morehouse Parish" by Alton Earl Ingram.
"The Black Hood of the KKK" - Prof. James M. Ruiz
The Family History Club has given me copies of the newspaper clippings collected by Tott Davenport.
I have been documenting the families of Sisson, Harp, Daniel, Yeldell, Evans, Cheshire, Arant, Sims, Humphrey(s), Laing, Rainwater & Bowe. PLUS I dabble in several others.
I have a copy of Thomas Young "T.Y." Harp's "My Kinfolk: An Account of the Harps, Masoners, Runyons, Whitlocks, Flinns, Greens and Roberts." I'll happily send copies to anyone who wants one.
I am working with the Family History Club's publications, "Known Burials of Morehouse Parish" - Vol 1 & 2. I will happily transfer any of my FAG sites to family and friends of loved ones. You may use any pictures I've taken or posted.
I have started adding information to various FAG sites from Rebecca DeArmond-Huskey's "Bartholomew's Song" - many family histories are contained within it. I also believe that this book started Morehouse Parish people cleaning up the bayou. I highly recommend this book to you.
I have finished scanning the book "Men & Women in WWII from Lincoln, Morehouse and Union Parishes". I'm taking the pictures and the military info and adding it to the memorials I find. Let me know if I post something in error - or if I can share any of these scans with you.
THANK YOU to Larry Freeman who has provided more than 3000 pictures for me to post. Larry! You are a jewel!!!!

I would love to see Lousiana! The south is wonderful!
James Daniel is descended from the Capt William Daniel of Middlesex County, VA line. I found out from DNA testing that we are not related to that line, which was a real disappointment for me.
I have emailed Bonnie and hope to hear from her soon.
I am descended from Marmaduke. By any chance to do you have a document such as a will or probate record that proves relationship of our Marmaduke and William to Josiah Jr. as his sons?
I am in the process of pinning down with proofs just who is M's and W's father and who is their grandfather, just for starters.
I had assumed that we were related to the Middlesex Daniels and had faith that I would find a connection somewhere. We need proofs of who is whose father and mother. Too many mistakes, wrong dates, etc. Without proofs all is conjecture.
