Note: If you have better or updated photos please put them on my sites. Let me know and I may even remove mine.|
Feel free to use any photos or information that you like. My biggest concern is that future generations will miss out if this information is not recorded.
First I would like to thank my parents for sharing and keeping old family photos. My mother was always very protective of her photos and that was a good thing because they are still around today. I have been rather frustrated in trying to organize and share family photos, then Find A Grave came along. I found this to be an excellent place to organize, share, and obtain feedback on family photos, and hopefully it will allow other family members to identify some of their unknown photos. I would like to thank my brother Stephen for scanning hundreds of these photos. On my dad's side of the family I would like to thank all of those that shared information and helped identify pictures over the years. My Aunt Phil Bourg; First Cousins, Bill de Valcourt, Jimmy de Valcourt and Doris Elmer Coon; Also Ralph Russell Dailey III; Gloria de Valcourt and her husband Steven Marcotte, Pat Marcotte, Vic Jeter, Mr. Rupert J. Barry, Mrs. Edwin A. Smith, Mrs. Mathilda Smith Lavergne etc, etc.
On my mother's side of the family I have to thank my Grand Mother Leattie Eugenia Robinson Davis, her sister Agnes Robinson Schroeder, her nieces Joann Robinson Moses, Sibyl Robinson Cavell, and Ruby Agnes "Sis" Ross along with Sybil Wilson. etc. etc.
In Sabine Parish, LA I would like to thank the Daughters of the American Revolution, Carl Dilbeck, The Sabine Index, Warren Meadows Funeral Home and all of the others that have made this project possible.
I have quite a few family photos that my parents and family members have taken and collected over the years. They cherished, shared and took care of them for many decades. They are no longer able to do this so I guess it is my turn to do the sharing. I like to see pictures of my relatives that are no longer with us and I believe others like to see them also.

Her maiden name. She was Katherine Rita Monteilh
You're welcome ! I thought a hostile, threatening e-mail deserved a brusque response, at least.

Possibly. I heard from someone that they recently went there and we're all but chased out for looking around. I was also told there were now signs posted though I don't know for sure. It is near me and my grandparents are there...I may have to stop by and see if I see signs now. Certainly they were no there last time I was but it has been a while.

Thanks for the info on Anna. I must have had to stop before posting headstone picture. That is now posted. I also added the info you sent
Get well soon
Greg, I looked up Paul in the Orleans birth records and it does in fact list Marie Lamothe as his mother. Just wanted to follow up and let you know. Here is a link to the free resource I use for NOLA births pre 1900 should you ever need it for research - http://www.usgwarchives.net/la/orleans/birth-alpha.htm

No nead to transfer her back to me.
|Kirk Haggerty||Note about Ann Haggerty (1895-1981)|
Thanks Greg for your observations about Ann Haggerty (a great-grand aunt of mine). I didn't know that; giving her body for scientific research at a medical school - cool. It sounded like Ann was a very progressive women, perhaps born before her times. Too bad I never knew her. I can certainly add your note in the Bio.
Thanks for all your help on Find A Grave.
Kirk Haggerty :-)
