All photographs accredited to me are merely visual representations of various tombstone listings, and, as such, are available for use by anyone, for any purpose, on any other site or publication with the understanding that the user need not gain my express permission for such use; however, credit to the photographer must be given.|
The son of a career US Air Force pilot (KIA Vietnam), I am a retired US Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer, and a retired Contract Administrator/negotiator/writer for the nuclear power industry.
My interest in family research and cemeteries goes back to my teen years and my mother's interest in the subject. Every summer was spent in Mississippi at the old (ca. 1835) plantation home owned by my grandmother and her brother.
My goal here is to document, through personal visits and photography, all known cemeteries in a two county area in Mississippi. I will also include cemeteries that were at one time surveyed along with the recorded graves, but that I cannot (and others) locate after diligent search.
I gladly will transfer memorials to family members or others with a pressing interest. I also solicit any and all corrections and expansion of the data I enter (I am not a perfect typist).

Richard and Ellen Dohan Valentine were my great grandparents. My mother was named after her. Ellen Elizabeth Coor Hudnall. I live in Tensas Parish across the river.
|A. Cruse||William Jozel Anding|
I checked my Ancestry records and William Jozel Anding is Daisy Mae Edwards' husband. She was the daughter of Thomas "Tom" E. Edwards and Margarette Medora "Maggie" Ferguson Edwards. According to Lora Peppers they are both buried in the Old Colony cemetery. She is basing this on their obits. There is no headstone. My mother has a letter saying Tom's parents lived at the Colony during the Civil War. Tom's father, Moses Thomas Edwards, asked for leave to go home and check on his family. Moses Thomas Edwards and his wife are supposedly buried there as well. It is strange that they have no headstones because they had money to buy them with according to succession and will records. I can not find Daisy's grave. Would it have been near her husband"s?

|A. Cruse||RE: Further on Anding/Edwards|
My records show that Daisy had a son by that same name. So I assumed it would have a Sr. Or Jr. With it. It is an unusual name. thanks!

Thoseare the grandparents names but they are supposed to be buried in the colony cemetery with Sullivan S. Edwards. Another person has found a Tom and MargaretbEdwards with death dates in 1945 in Bossier.

Yes, Ernest, I am sure that Ida and John are buried at Union Church Cemetery. The Ida and J. Proctor that you refer to are, I am sure, the same persons that I have listed on findagrave. The information came from descendants of Ida and John P. It was with the approval from the family that I posted their memorials to findagrave. I know these particular descendants personally.
Thank you very much for your inquiry!

Thanks to your photo of the old marker for A. W. P. Parker in the Parker plot, I have figured out his identity. He was a lawyer and a brother to Dr. James Porter Parker who is also buried in this family plot.
