Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love to learn about my family, I have been researching for 8 years now. I try to find out as much as I can about mine and my husbands families. For some reason I really like cemeteries. They make me feel more connected to the people who have come before me. I'm respectful of the graves and hate to see them unkept and neglected.

I know how hard it is to research when the person you are researching is not local to you, so I'm willing to help anyone with research in my area. I live in Gilbert, Louisiana but most of my family is from Caldwell Parish, Louisiana.

John Coston grave
Thank you for taking and uploading the photo of the tombstone for John Coston. I am STILL trying to find his grandfather, Phillip James Coston and wife Roberta (Bertie) Coston if you come across it in that cemetery. His death certificate states he was buried there but I haven't been able to find it. His son was Woodard Coston. Thanks again!

I am sorry, I put your name instead of Ida Mae's. I obviously wasn't thinking. Thank you for all your help. I was born in Lincoln Parish, Louisiana and now live in Indiana. Most of my family are buried in Louisiana. I could not have gathered the information I have, if it wasn't for folks like you. Again, may the Lord bless you for your generosity and dedication. Ina
