Sharissa McDonald
Eva McDonald
I'm trying to figure out if Eva McDonald is a relative of mine. Her Fathers name would have been Bryant Luther/Leonard/Lanier McDonald and mothers name would be Irene Seivall Hammond McDonald. The name I have is Eva/Everlee. Bryant was my GG grandfather and was rumored to have run away from Mississippi with Irene to Louisiana and had approximately 5 children with her...Eva,Benjamin, Woodrow,Velma,and Mildred....any information you could pass along would be much appreciated.

Rester cemetery
OK. pulled my pics and it will take a little explaining what you see at the cemetery

There is a another family's line - Ard, which consist of 6-7 headstones on your right going into cemetery (N to S), then

there is the McDonald line with only 4 stones (north to south) Helen Hinton, Leona McD, Wilson McD, Charlie and nothing but space, and then behind them;

another family line
with Ard, Hargis, Newman, Thomas, Ellis, etc. covering the same amount of land from north to south

It looks like: the Ard family has most all these three to four rows with the McD's between and possibly some unmarked plot(s) south of Charlie McD. If you could see my pics you can see that as a possibility. The Ellis' are directly behind McD and then Ards two rows back.

Option: who has the plat map/deed of ownership; find out how many plots are in the McD's family plot (Varnado, a church, or are they in Franklinton?) If more plots than 4, assume someone else is buried to the left of Charlie and probably an obit will be your only verification if there is an obit stating they were buried there.

Remember: obits are not always obits they are articles/notices that someone succumbed, etc. Good Luck.

Charlie McD
Sorry but know really nothing about the family -- have pictures for the cemetery and depending on how I took the pics might have "unknown" graves/headstone pics but give me a day or two and I'll go through pics to see if anything shows up. If you know of funeral home (possibly the Pound/Poole in Bogalusa), they may have records there or whichever funeral home handled most of the burial at cemetery.

Also, at the public library in Bogalusa, on microfilm, is the newspaper. The reader is in poor shape so I am unable to photograph obits from it. If you know approximate dates, you might try there or the newspaper office might look up specific obit in their copies if you have death date (from what I have been typing the people were buried usually same day to 2/3 days later and obits/notices were in the paper same week if weekly paper). This is in regard to deaths prior to 1960 that I have been typing.

Get back with me/and I'll try to get back to you shortly. Barbara

Thank you for the updated info for his memorial. I hope to one day get all my pics on and his will be added unless someone else gets to it first.

If you want a transfer - be glad to do it -- just send the request. Barbara

Memorial# 33951655
regarding Willie Dee Banks O'Rear's obituary added as a Flower to her husband's memorial (Memorial# 33951588) William Gaines O'Rear.
Their names are so similar, I even confused them when adding memorial information. Possibly, if you used the "Edit" tab and sent the obit to Ed Stallings, memorial creator, he would add it to Willie's profile.
Thank you for adding the obit and all the other contributions you make to this wonderful website.
Be safe,

No I am not related to Irene McDonald Martin. I hope you find your missing link. I do not know of any of her family.
