Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi I am a retired fire chief and love history, especially family history. I have completed a new survey of the Simsboro Cemetery the Douglas Cemetery and Cook Cemetery in Lincoln Parish Louisiana and have downloaded it to FAG. I also placed a printed copy at the Lincoln Parish Library which includes family history from The Cemetery Associations.

I have photographed every marker in the Douglas and Cook Cemeteries and most of those in the Simsboro Cemetery in Lincoln Parish, but haven't got all of them posted to FAG yet but working slowly on that. If you have one you want let me know and I will try to get it posted as quick as I can.

I and would love to help others find family in Lincoln Parish. I discovered the value of this site on a recent trip to Kansas, when we found some of my wife's relative's thru Find A Grave.

If you have additional information for any of the memorials I have added, please send it to me and I will add it to them. If you have photos of anyone, please feel free to add them or send them to me and I will add them. I will also add relationship links.

If you meet the Find a Grave relationship guidelines for a transfer. I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you. Please don't add a duplicate memorial.

I did not realize when I wrote before that Martha Ann's son, Scott Dowling is also buried in Simsboro Cemetery, wondered if you would transfer his memorial to me too, his memorial is #66067660

your GAF friend,

Martha Ann Watson Dowling
Martha Ann was the daughter of my maternal Grand Aunt. I wondered if you would consider transferring her memorial #65429314 to me so that I can link her with her other family members, her mother was one of 12 children born to my great grandparents.

My Find A Grave ID is #47357320 if you would like to take a look at my work,
your Find A Grave friend,
