Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Franklin, lived on Bayou Sale for over 45 years, and now am on Bayou Teche near Franklin after two hurricanes and floods in three years forced the move.

Local history, heritage and genealogy have always been a wonderful part of my life. I have been abstracting church and court records since the 1960's and am a trained archivist. As a volunteer, I donate my time and materials to repair any church registers or record books that are in need of restoration and serve as Historian and Archivist for Grevemberg House Museum in Franklin.

My reason for participating in the Find A Grave project is to add as many early graves and cemeteries as possible before they are lost to vandals, hurricanes, floods and the passing of time.

Hopefully I will provide information that will help those who live far away from south Louisiana to find the burial place of their ancestors.

Pierre Borel
Mrs. Luke, I am searching for the grave site of Pierre Borel in the St. Martin de Tours cemetery (1722-1780). He is one of my husband's ancestors. I tried to find his grave site but the cemetery is huge and confusing. Can you give me some clues on how to start this process?

Charles Matherne
Thank you so much for transferring the memorial of Charles Victor Matherne to me. (Franklin Cemetery) It is deeply appreciated. Charles was wounded in the Battle of Fordoche, in the civil war, when he was shot in the lung, when charging the Federal troops. (1864)
He died in 1920, when he stumbled into a fireplace. Thank you so much for creating his memorial. I am happy that he is now in the hands of family...and honored to maintain his memorial.
