Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family since 1971 and descend from many of the founding families of the Ouachita Parish area. I think this is a great website to preserve the information sometimes only available on the cemetery markers, as well as a place to post photos of past generations for everyone to enjoy. I hope many more will join me in recording and sharing!

Some of the families I am researching are: Carter (NC, SC, TN, AR)
Gordon (NC, TN, AR)
Moore (KY, LA)
Laster (LA)
Shipley (OH, LA)
Earle (LA)
Gilly-Gilley (LA)
Duncan (LA)
Jumper (Schumpert) (SC, AL, MS, TX)
Patton (TN, TX)
Hibbard (VT, Canada, OH, TX, LA)
Sides (NC, AL, TX)
Etier (LA)
Olivo (LA)
Eppinette (Epinet) (LA)
Yoist (KY, LA, TX)
Gills (KY, TN, AR)
Milam (VA, TN, MS, LA)
Pailette (LA)
Purl (KY, LA)
Stokes (LA)
Carlton (SC, TN, AR)
Suggs (MS)
Jowers (AL, MS)
Rowland (NC, TN, AR)
Fike (NC, TX)

I enjoy hearing from anyone related to lines, and would like to share research.

RE: Thanks for sponsoring Elizabeth Rix
Rhonda, You are the owner of two different Elizabeth Rix memorials - Elizabeth "Betsey' [Lyman] Rix, wife of Garner, and Elizabeth "Betsey" [Flynn] Rix, wife of Elisha Lee. Both of them are my 4g aunt, so they are not direct relation. Thank you for the transfer offer. However, I will defer to you on whether you transfer them or not. Your offer is greatly appreciate. Regards, your cousin Linne

Hi Rhonda
I have just begun my search into my family and came across your picture of Andrew and Mattie Moore. They are my 2x great-grandparents, Eunice Bell is my great-grandmother.

Hello Rhonda,

Correction please.
Community Christ Cemetery, Ouachita Parish, La.

Willie Belle Mobley Traweek #35214143 should read Willie Belle McCall Traweek.
Is the wife of Thadius William Traweek #35214142.

Willie Belle McCall is also the daughter of William Andrew McCall #35214084 and Daisy Belle Carter McCall #35214077.

Several of the other "McCall's" at this cemetery are the children of William Andrew McCall and Daisy Belle Carter McCall and their spouses.

Just wanted the correction on Willie Belle McCall.

Thank you. Janet

Hello Rhonda,
I added my great grandfather tonight and found that you had him added by his initials. Was hoping you would transfer management of him and my great grandmother to me. His name is George Houston Taylor, you have him as G. H. Taylor #34021782
and my great grandmother is Lelia Doughty Taylor #34021783.
Thank you,
Jenny Taylor Ortega

Ellen Hibbard Kelton
Hi Rhonda! We have communicated in the past. I am related to the Hibbards. May I use Ellen's gravestone photo in my Family Tree? I will gladly give you credit! Thanks so much, Terry

Hibbard Family in Texas
Hello Rhonda, you have created some memorials in Texas (Grimes County) for some of my family who descend from the Hibbards and I see they are a surname you are researching and wondering if you are a descendent and where you live? We may be long-lost cousins! Would love to hear from you and tell you thanks for your work here on Findagrave! Sincerely, Brenda in Burnet, Texas
