Caroline Nancy Griffin Gills, Metairie Cemetery, New Orleans, LA
Memorial for Carolina Nancy Griffin Liddell in Llanada Plantation Cemetery, Catahoula Parish La has been deleted.

Caroline Nancy Griffin was enumerated in the 1850 Catahoula Parish La Census with the family of Sir John Richardson Liddell. She was listed as age 15 born in Mississippi. No kinship established in the Census. More research will be made.

With this Census information, your information seems to fit Caroline Nancy Griffin Gillis listed in Metairie Cemetery, New Orleans. This information has been left on a flower insert on her memorial.

If you find additional information on the Liddell family, please pass onto to me. One of my Davis ancestor was John Liddell Davis. Also John Richardson Liddell was married to Mary Metcalfe Roper and there is a Metcalfe ancestor. My goal is to connect to this family.

Thanks again for the information on Carolina Gillis.

Caroline Nancy Griffin Gills, Metairie Cemetery, New Orleans, LA

Thanks for the information on the above. Will make more inquiries on her, but your info looks promising. Much appreciate your help.

Have you gathered all information needed on the project of families of Catahoula Parish La.

Have you a publication of this information? Would be interested in one.

Thanks again.

RE: Blair
Wow, thanks for being so prompt with edits and fixing duplicates! You are a credit to Find-A-Grave!

I have not found the Annie Blair you mentioned in my family Blair/Rials/Bates research, but if I run across her in the future, I will definitely let you know by contacting you through your email address.

I had a chance to read a bit at your blog and enjoyed it very much. Thanks for the effort you put into your research. The story about the unique gravesite of Florence Irene Ford in the Natchez Cemetery was both interesting and very touching. I can understand the mother's grief and her desire to be with her child during the storms.
