Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been putting together my family for the last 20+ years and have recently found this site. I will try to post local cemeteries as I can and will also take photo requests as time allows. I am currently working on a survey of Pilgrims Rest Cemetery in Shongaloo, Webster, LA and am approx 45% done with it. I will also post local obituaries as time allows. Unless noted, all of my obituaries come from the funeral home themselves and not from a newspaper.

My Family History: Mom - Wise/Morgan,Tuberville/Roberson & Dad - Lee/Franklin, Perkins/Temple

I am a decedent of James E & Purmilla Miller Wise.

Child of Alice Wise & John W. Bailey
Cory, I finally related the other son to the memorial of Alice & John.

Someone told me that their was a baby daughter buried next to John & Alice. Have you ever heard anything about this? There is not a tombstone. Also, there is a baby boy buried there which belongs to one of Alice & John's sons. No marker for him either! His parents are buried in Bernice, Louisiana. There is enough space for two graves there.

Cory, Mrs. Slack died Sunday, April 10, 2011 in Springhill, LA. You have her on Find A Grave, thought you might want to complete her memorial. Her obituary is in the Shreveport times today.

Pilgrims Rest
Hi Cory, This is Larry Burford. I don't know if you remember me. My Aunt Helen is friends with your Mom. I am looking for Nathaniel ( Nathan ) Strong and Mary Caroline Norton Strong's grave. They were my Gr. Gr. Grandparents. I was told that they are buried at Pilgrims Rest in Shongaloo. Nathaniel died in 1899 and his wife sometime after 1903. I just found out that Nathaniel was a Confederate soldier but I doubt if he has one of the Confederate markers.
