RE: Newspaper
There are no obits in the 1896 St Landry Trade Review. It is all bios of people in the parish with photographs of many of them and buildings in the various towns. 1896 might have been the only year they published it. I don't know. Sue Deville had never seen or heard of the publication.

RE: Newspaper
Hi Mary

I have an extra copy of the original I think. I left the original with Sue Deville at the Opelousas Interpretive Center several years. She was supposed to make a copy & put that on the St Landry website. But since she died, I have no idea what happened to my original. The original is newspaper size. You'd need access to a large copy machine. Email me. We'll discuss.

Charles Jackson Thompson write up
Hi Mary,
Thanks for great information.. but please assist me with understanding somethings.
I am a little confused by some of the dates.
.. Born
March 22, 1850; son of Charles and Eleanor (Larkin) Thompson, the former of whom was a native of St. Charles, Mo., and moved from that place to Opelousas with his parents in the year 1826, when he was 8.

Also this memorial Charles Jackson Thompson was born 1851 - 1916 per burial plot.

I didn't catch the duplicate because of the spelling of LaCombe. I spelled it Lacombe. Sorry. Glad you caught the dup.

John Henry Harmanson
Hi Mary,
I did see the burial marker for John H. Harmanson but realized the birth date was wrong as he would have been 133 years old at death! Since he is my Great Uncle I thought I should obtain his death certificate and it lists 1874 as his birth year. The numbers 7 and 8 apparently were transposed when making the burial marker. I will be going to the Catholic Opelousas cemetery next month and will give the correct date to the caretakers there. Thank you for taking the picture-the death date is correct.

Greetings Mary Kay,
Thank you so much for the wonderful photos of my Great-grandmother's grave. When I was there in 2003, the markers were darkened, and I could not get up high enough to photograph them. This is my wonderful grandmothers Mother and some siblings. Thank you for adding these to the Find A Grave site.
Another graver,

RE: Tombe of Caroline Tate
Dear Mrs Cramer,

Thank you very much for the information -

I'm still under the emotion of having discovered that Caroline Tate's grave still exists. I wonder if would perhaps be my great grand-father and/or his brother that would have redone the grave of their mother years after her death. (They were only babies and/or enfants when their mother died. And their father died in the late 1880s) A mystery. A pity there are no records proper to the cemetery that could be consulted to see when concessions were bought, repaired, added to, etc. . I will ask my brother or cousins to see what they can do to keep up her e tombe. Or if ever I go back home for a visit, I will try to do so myself. The last time I went home was in 2005, I effectively visited the tombs of my great grand parents Ardoin-Miller, who are buried in the area of the cemetery that you describ. And of course, I walked around the cimentery. Don't know how I could have missed it. The names of the people buried next to Caroline Tate are not of any relation. I knew personnaly Mr Kirby and Miss Mira Johnson. For the Fontenot family, I don’t recollect those names, nor know of any relation.

When I have time, I'll look into the epitaphs I copied back around the beginning of the 1970's, and add to the list on the Internet site what doesn’t figure today. One thing for sure that I have to add to the list, since names aren’t in Find a Grave, are the family my great grand parents, Lucius Pitre – Adélie Soileau. I remember going on those graves with my father to put flowers for his grand-parents and uncle; there were only iron crosses and metal plaques on those graves. Not even brick foundations - only grass. Apparently, those markers no longer exist.

If you had ancestors from Ville Platte, we must probably be, be it very distant cousins.

Thank you so much once again for the information. You can't imagine how much this means to me.
