Samuel Jordon Smith Jr. His Find A Grave # is 41136147. I see you have a photo can you tell me where it originated from? I believe Samuel Jordon Smith Jr had a brother Horatio Banks Smith who was my maternal great grandfather. I am unable to locate any grave for his father Samuel J. Smith Sr. Many have his mother as Loveless Elmina Ann Taunton whose grave is also unknown. If you have any thoughts on his family I would ask that you contact me via my email. email@example.com. BTW I attended school with Curtis Nygard are you related?
Findagrave Photos Nan, thank you for all your contributions to the Findagrave website. Thanks also for allowing the use of your photos. I use the photographs as source media and will gladly give you credit. Becky
Re: Tidwell Yes, I'm aware of the cemetery situation. I have talked to a person who was aware of all that went on in getting access to it. He finally agreed to let certain descendants (a list was made) to have access but only if he is advised in advance. I've heard several tombstones have been made into steps down to the water for fishing access.
RE: Photos No Nyegaard or Odom pictures, but I grew up next door to the great grandson of James Marion Odom Find A Grave ID# 8764110. James's father Pinckney is buried not far from my family in the Farmerville Cem.
RE: James W Aulds There were two men by the name of James W. Auld in Union Parish during this period: James Washington Auld and James Wyatt Auld. The two were first cousins, with James Washington Auld the son of Elijah Michael Auld, and James Wyatt Auld the son of Elijah's brother, James Alexander Auld. They used their middle names to distinguish them in court records. For example, Union Parish LA Conveyance Record Book O, p. 351 is a record in which Elijah M. Auld sells land to "James Washington Auld," and later deeds verify that this was his son. On the other hand, these records show that James W. Auld who was the son of James Alexander Auld & Elizabeth Hester was named "James Wyatt Auld:
Union Parish LA Succession Book K, pp. 85-87,279-286
Union Parish LA Succession Book G, pp. 287-301 and A-1, pp.48-50
In addition, on the 1870 census, James Wyatt Auld is listed as "Wyatt Auld," and the family is clearly that of the man who was James W. Auld and the son of James A. Auld.
So the man in question was indeed named "James Washington Auld."
Do you have a connection to the Auld family? Mine is through numerous intermarriages of my Ward family with the Aulds.
RE: Josephine Caroline Friederike Ernestine Reuel Nan, How are you doing? It's good to hear from you again. I am writing to tell you I don't think I ever received the message or question from Jane Rousseau, I was able to trace my Great Grandmother's lineage all the way back to the 1600's. If you would please contact Jane, I will try to answer any questions she may have. Best Wishes, Richard
