Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello all. I've been doing genealogy since I got started with a project in 6th grade around 1983. I have always found the stories and lives extremely interesting, even though I sometimes bore others when I ramble on and on. I live in Minden and I have visited most all of the courthouses in Northwest Louisiana countless times, and have visited most of the cemeteries as well. My main families of research interest are the Holland, Canterbury, Caskey, Bates, Culverhouse, Herrington, Johnston, and Duckworth and associated lines on my side, and the Cage, Hicks, Hutson, Ellis, and Fraser lines on my wife's side. I'll help any I can, and look forward to contributing as much as I can to FindAGrave!

The photo for my profile image is a very large and unique tombstone located in the Old Homer Cemetery. One of the reasons I find old cemeteries fascinating. Some tombstones are truly exquisite works of art!

Also, I don't mind maintaining any of my family branch listings at all, if you have any you want to hand off. Just ask! I understand the 4-generation 'rule' that F.A.G. has, however I am a firm believer that whoever is more closely related to an individual, they ought to be able to maintain a listing. A first cousin should be able to trump 'the 2nd cousin of my mother-in-law's brother' or stuff like that. I have no problem transferring any memorials to someone that is more closely related to someone than I am (except maybe a couple). I am not a 'numbers' person. Most of my memorials are related to me or family friends. I also believe that everyone deserves a memorial, even if you are unsure of where they are buried. That is what research is for. I also don't mind anyone using any tombstone pictures I may have taken. Feel free.

Good luck hunting!

RE: Duckworth
You are very welcome. I know its frustrating, I believe they are buried there also per the obituary...but I don't understand the lack of a stone. We met a church member, I believe he's an alderman or Decon, he says he remembers Mrs Duckworth passing, but doesn't remember Mr Duckworth and didn't know them. He did say since Mr Duckworth passed first, that he would be buried next to Tommie...hence the pictures I posted showed them that way. He mentioned another church in that area that gets confused with Campbell alot, Palestine. It has a very small, very nelected cemetery...but I did stop by there just to make sure Mr William and Mrs Nannie weren't there. There was no stones there either. I hope you let me know if you find anything further!

RE: Campbell cemetery/Duckworth
Hi Barry: yes, we did see Tommie Duckworth there, with two other stones, different names. It is on the farest area of the property, near the road and under a large oak tree. We looked for signs of other interrments, but couldn't see any. The cemetery is not far from where we're staying, we'll go back out there today or tomorrow and I'll take some pictures of the whole area for you. It appeared to us as though Tommie's stone had actually been moved and placed where it is, because its sitting on top of a large tree root, if not, its taken the stress of that root coming though very well, its in good condition. I'll PM those pic's to you when I take them. If you're sure of the area, they can be posted on Nannie's and Williams page still, we'll let you decide.

No problem, Barry. My kinship with her is through one of her Reed sister-in-laws, and that is very distant !! Barb
