Hi Nan,

Would you like me to transfer his memorial Link to memorial: to you? Your husbands related and I'm not.
Let me know.

Wille Hayden
Whoops! Sorry about that got the wrong name. I do have a G.H. Hayden purchased 3 graves Feb 11, 1893 I will have to go out to the cemetery and see what I can find. However I do have however I see they have written on here Willie C. Hayden 1887-1890. Do you have any info on this child? I would appreciate any info on him that you might have. Thanks!

Willie Hynes
Hi Nan, I do not have a Willie Hynes in my cemetery records. but that does not mean he is not here. I do have a card for Dan, Hynes purchased Sept. 1, 1942.
Then it has Hynes, Daniel 1891-1985
Hynes, Josephine (DeTour) 1890-1942
I have to be honest I didn't check to see if there are stones for the Hynes family.
I do see there were only 2 graves purchased though.
How old would Willie have been?
How this has been some help

RE: Graves of James Selma & Etta White
Nan, Oh I am sorry, I didn't realize that they were relatives! But I do agree that I have a lot of family history in my past that certainly isn't lovely either! I know it sounds crazy but I was excited because I had heard about the incident from my nursing home patient but I had never had an actual link until I ran across the article. Sometime when I find an article, I let the memorial manager know in case they want to add it to any of the history. Again, so very very sorry if I brought up any bad memories. You are one of my most favorite contributors!!

RE: photos
Hello Ms. Nan, You are very welcome! There are some issues with Mr. Brown's dates of birth and death from the tombstone to the actual dates. I researched this a couple of years ago and think I have the answers. I emailed the contributor with some information but never got a response at all back then. I love the picture from your back door... I think you should invite me for a couple weeks' stay. (Just Kidding.) Contact me with anything you need here in Lincoln County... I am in the process of locating and filling your other photo requests. Michael

Graves of James Selma & Etta White
Hope you are well. I ran across an old article from the 1937 Gazette regarding this couple. Apparently they died from a murder-suicide--sadly, most of which was witnessed by their children. While reading the article, I realized that I had heard this story before. I grew up near Spencer and had heard of there being a dance hall/juke joint place that was frequented by both black and white folks. When I was older and became a nurse working at the local nursing home, I heard LOTS of stories about this place. I believe from the article that this was the man who ran the place. The story was that it was situated close to the train bridge and that the partyers would run across the bridge into Ouachita parish any time it was raided! Anyway, I didn't know if you like to make mention of cause of death on any of your memorials but I thought it was kind of interesting! Here is the link:

Talk to you later,

Sometime back you inquired about this cemetery, asking if it is in Ouachita or Union Parish. I grew up there and am working on cemetery list now. It's definitely situated in Union but many in this area might have Calhoun (Ouachita) addresses and/or phone numbers.
