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!

Myra Barberousse
Myra Barberousse # 113268209.
According to Myra Barberousse's obituary, Myra was buried at the Taylor Cemetery at Liberty Hill in Bienville Parish and not Woodard Cemetery in Bienville Parish.

I have also sent you a copy of her obituary through the edits.

Please correct where she is buried. There are other Barberousse listed as being buried in the Woodard Cemetery that probably belong in the Taylor Cemetery also. There two cemeteries are quite often mixed up.

Thank you,
S. Woods

Thank you so much for the two obituaries that you sent me for the Hunter's who are buried in Bistineau Cemetery, Webster Parish, Louisiana.

I have already entered them and given you the credit that you so deserve.

Bistineau is my home church and I love the cemetery, and have been trying to do memorials for each person that I can.

Thanks again!

Re: Chester Guyotte
I'm sorry Barry, there were no other markers. It appeared he was in a single grave between LaValley & Wordell plots, do either of these names mean anything.

Hello Barry,

I enjoy history and I'm very interested in discovering more about my family tree. I'm the great, great grand-daughter of John. S. Vernon and Adriannah Viola Holland Vernon. I would enjoy visiting with you.

Hearon Relative
Thank you so much for honoring the request for a picture of my Hearon Relative. It means so much to me, as I am sure I will never be able to visit his grave site. Thank you again. Elaine Hearon Shelton
