Bio and Links
Bio Photo Having a great love for genealogy, visiting cemeteries is a way to "get to know" some of my ancestors, cousins, aunts and uncles especially when there is no other photo available.

Please make ALL requests via the edit field as I don't make changes via email or my contributor's page to ensure accuracy.

If you see a photo that I have posted that is unclear due to resizing or want the full photo, please email me and I may be able to provide the unreduced photograph.

If you send me a rude request, I will delete it and will not read it at all.

TRANSFERS: I will transfer memorials within the Find A Grave four-generation rule. I will be happy to add additional information or links. I will not transfer my own relatives except in very rare instances. In many cases, I will make transfers when I have not added a tombstone photograph and am not related.

PICTURES: I take pictures for people to enjoy and use as documentation in their research. Therefore, you may use them for your personal needs. However, if you republish them, add the following: courtesy of Patti, Find A Grave contributor 46588659. Under NO circumstances are the pictures to be used in a "for sale" publication (or website) without my express written permission for each item.

OBITUARIES: I will not add an obituary without a source. If you see one of my memorials with an obituary attached and it contains either living individuals or no source, please send me a suggestion through the edit field so that I might correct it to agree with Find A Grave rules.

I have quite a few obituaries of which some are listed on my website and am willing to share. Please, however, follow the directions on my website on how to request.

Info requested . . .
Howdy fellow Find A Grave contributor . . .

A 'sister' graver (in CA) is seeking contact info for grave locations in Rockport, Social Hill, and Fancois Cemeteries - as she is planning to visit same (family members) in October. I am able to direct her only to those I have photographed over the years. Some of her family members are in 'unmarked' graves, and she would appreciate knowing how to contact the admins for the above named cemeteries. Can you please assist? if you know how to communicate with the the current overseers of these locations. OR - direct me to someone else, who can assist with the necessary information.

Due to ongoing abusive, and troll input on my bio page? I no longer leave the public message option open ... but ... you may contact me through a 'generic' SAC at this location . . . memorial #21842258.

Thank you for any/all info you may be able to provide us . . . :>)

Your welcome and their graves were close together. Molly was a little to the right with a row between them. Thanks

Solon B. Blackburn
Not related. I research old news articles. Ran across the following--

The Donaldsonville Chief 20 Jan. 1877, Sat. p. 2 “We have received from Hon. W. Jasper Blackburn of Homer, La., a printed “Letter of Explanation and Vindication,” addressed to the newspaper press of Louisiana, which refers to the recent sad death of the writer’s son, Solon B. Blackburn, reference to which was made in these columns a few weeks since. Mr. Blackburn earnestly combats the general belief that his son committed deliberate suicide, and asserts that the unfortunate young man was neither—
Grazed with care nor crossed in hopeless love.
He was the favored son of indulgent parents, and when he set out upon his fatal journey to New Orleans he left a happy home with a mind free from care or sorrow. He had not been discarded by the young lady to whom he was paying attention, and sustained the most satisfactory relations with her up to the time of his death. It is also denied that he had been dissipating excessively just previous to his unhappy taking off. His father admits that “he drank too much at times,” but says—
he had not been drinking to any excess in New Orleans—on but one single occasion some days before his death—and was perfectly cool and sober when he was shot.
The most reasonable explanation of the rash act which brought young Blackburn to an untimely end is contained in the following note from the family physician:
HOMER, LA., Jan 12, 1877.
Hon. W. Jasper Blackburn:
Dear Sir—I received your note in reference to your son Solon and the probable cause of his untimely end. I am candid in saying I do not think intemperance the cause of the act, and less do I believe that disappointment in life had any thing to do with it.
I give it as my opinion that the continued fever he had last summer may have left the membranes around the brain in such an irritated condition as to finally occasion a degree of depression amounting to momentary insanity or partial alienation of mind.
Very respectfully,
Mr. Blackburn protests against the misrepresentations which have been made concerning this lamentable affair, closing his letter thus:
But in any event, a more devoted son and true man than Solon Blackburn never lived. And his death, let it have happened as it may, is quite crushing enough to his household without the aid of the press to make it more intolerable.”
