Bio Photo BEATITUDES OF THE FAMILY GENEALOGIST

Blessed are the great grandmothers, who hoarded newspaper clippings and old letters, for they tell the story of their time.

Blessed are all the grandfathers who filed every legal document, for this provides proof.

Blessed are grandmothers who preserve family Bibles and diaries, for this is our heritage.

Blessed are father who elect officials that answer letter of inquiry, for some, this is their only link to the past.

Blessed are mothers who relate family traditions and legends to the family, for one of her children will surely remember.

Blessed are the relatives who fill in family sheets with extra data, for them we owe the family history.

Blessed is any family whose members strive for the preservation of records, for theirs is a labour of love.

Blessed are the children who will never say, "Grandma, you have told that old story twice today."

Honeycutt
Hi Shirley, William is my Great Grandfather. My grandmother, Agnes Louise (Honeycutt) Pinaire, was one of 11 children born to William H and Agnes Sophronia (Wilkes) Honeycutt.As far as Agnes' family the trail has dried up so far with her. William Henderson was born 4-9-1876 in LA but I never knew where exactly. He died 6-24-1959.His parents were Eliza Ann Walker (1848 to 1901)and John Bernard Honeycutt (1841 to 1924. Both were born and died in LA. John's parents were Susan Ann Mixon (1825 Wilcox, AL to 1860 in LA) and Austin Honeycutt (1812 LA to 1911 LA). Eliza's parents were Martin Walker and Sarah Ann Gorman. Her grandparents were (Paternal) Martin Walker and Ann Webb. and (Maternal) were Simpson Gorman and Vashti Maria Vann.

My grandmother Agnes Louise Honeycutt Pinaire (1907 LA to 1988 KC,MO buried in Hot Springs, AR) married my grandfather Francis Ulrich Michael Pinaire (1893 Wichita, KS to 1973 Hot Springs, Ark). Agnes was my step grandmother. My grandfathers first wife was the one that gave birth to all my mother's siblings except my Uncle Howard. As the story goes, my grandmother Mary Susanne Kazel died shortly after giving birth to my mother. The youngest of 7 children and grandpa married Agnes and they had Uncle Howard. Agnes is buried in Wichita KS and Frank and Agnes are buried in Ark. That's about all I can tell you about the Honeycutt's except way back in the late 1600's, the Honeycutt name was spelled HUnnicutt. Back in 1625 Augustine Hunnicutt came to the US from England and lived in Surry, VA. They didn't move to LA until some time after 1745 then it was Monroe, LA. If you need more info, I have it but not much more, just snippits here and there. Thanks for asking about my family. Carolyn

Shirley, where can I find proof of Robert's (Memorial# 8886394) birth date? I have searched everywhere and your date is the only one I trust. I just need some documentation for my tree.
Thanks so much, see you on Burks Heritage at Spokt.com!

Richard Addison Graham
The Weston HS Alumni Association is researching the history or our school. In 1883, a school that preceded our school was taught by a Professor Graham. Richard Addison Graham of this website may be the teacher. We have some recollections that describe a Mr. Graham teaching at several schools around Weston, Louisiana in Jackson Parish.

Other information (such as a biography) to help us document R.A. Graham's teaching career here would be very helpful. We now only have a 1870 census (that describes a school-teacher RA Graham) and the recollections (without Mr. Graham's initials) that three people wrote.

If there is no other info, we would still like to publish the photos on your website or a link to your website (with your permission, of course-- credit will be given). We can reciprocate by sending the recollections about Mr. Graham.

Thanks,
Mark Culpepper-- Amateur historian for WHSAA

Old City Cemetery, Monroe, LA
Hello:
Do you know how to reach the office and records of Old City Cemetery in Monroe? I called the number ending in 2415 and I get a message telling me to enter a mailbox number. The message does not identify the number. Any assistance would be appreciated.
