|Bio and Links|
My name is Shanna (yes, named after the book). I live in the southern U.S. with my five cats (Gia, JoJo, Maggie, Max, & Abby) and adorable, Cajun fiance, Baret. My personal website is skatoolaki.com; my graving journal/blog can be found at Graver's Journal. I am also the Iberville Parish Keeper, here at FAG.|
I'm 35 and a true-blue Scorpio (Nov. 6). I'm a web designer and a writer with some published work, and enough unfinished work to fill a large library.
I have always had a passion and interest in cemeteries...being a writer, I can't help but imagine what the lives of each name on each headstone were like.
One of the cemeteries that touched me most was Brandon Hall Cemetery, just off the Natchez Trace, in Mississippi. Taking the names and dates found there, I began my research into this family and to see what happened to the many children buried there...the fruits of my labor became The Brandon Children; a site and project I am continually working on.
I am also - finally - actively researching my family own history (and using F.A.G. to preserve information on final resting places and short bios). Surnames from the Avoyelles, Pointe Coupee, St. Landry, and Iberville parishes that I'm always on the lookout for include (but aren't limited to!) Beauvais, Nugent, Prestenback, Charrier, Guerin, Deauville, Guillory, and Juneau. My work appears on my site, Louisiana Lineage.
Finally, if I have added any of your family/friends and you would like to take ownership or have changes made, please just let me know.

This person does not have a grave marker. You can use St Paul the Apostle Catholic Church Burials, Book 1, Page 21 for your death source. His burial entry is spelt Alexander.

As you can guess, I am the Caretaker of these and some other memorials of Joel Manuels. Joel has returned and I have offered to transfer back any of his memorials. But I do transfer over memorials to those who might have more information. Hope you have a Happy New Year

Thank you so much for retreaving my sisters memorial photo....I am building a book in ancestry for my other siblings and this was the last thing to go in the book
Thank you for all that you do for Find A Grave
|Cory||RE: Mattie's Maiden Name Added|
I have heard that the Quins of Quin Drive are related to the Quines buried at Oak Lodge/Harelson Cemetery but am not sure of it?
I did not know of a Hindu Temple on Quin drive but remember a skating rink at the end of the drive.
My grandfather, who is a grandson of William Elliott, buried @ Harelson Cemetery, told me that he was born in a house where Airline Hwy. overpasses Jefferson Hwy. He and his two brothers inherited much of the land which is now on Elliott Road. One of these days I am going to call the DOTD and tell them that for years they have been misspelling Elliott road as Elliot road.
That is so kind of you to offer a transfer but none are necessary. I am just thrilled to see Mattie's maiden name added along with the links to her parents! I must tell you that several months ago on a beautiful day I took my aunt to Harelson Cemetery and showed her the graves of her great and great great grandparents and she was overwhelmed and cried. She thought the cemetery was so beautiful & peaceful. It made her day! No one in our family knew exactly where they were buried until I came across Find-A-Grave and the information you recorded. Thank you again for all that you have done through Find-A-Grave! God bless you!
