Bio and Links
The Baham Family Cemetery is where many of my mother's relatives are buried. I am interested in getting "correct" information and/or pictures from headstones so I may be assured that I am putting together a family tree without errors.

My mother's father was Leon Baham and her mother was Shoule Baham. There are family members from both sides in this cemetery, along with many other cemeteries in Saint Tammany Parish and Tangipahoa Parish.

My father's side of the family is Hitchings and Owen. He was born in Oregon and I believe the Hitchings side began in New Brunswick, Canada. I am looking for information on this side also.

Bailey Photo Requests
I just saw, again, that you have 4 requests for Bailey photographs in Hennen Cemetery, Loranger, La.
In the description of the cemetery, it reads that you should go to the office for an escort out to the cemetery because it is located on the grounds of Zemurray Park. I was out there about 2 years ago and was not greeted very well. In fact, I got the distinct impression that I was unwelcome and was told that I should have called in advance before coming to the gate unannounced. It was during deer season (which I don't keep track of) and it would be hazardous to go out there at that time. I got such a cold reception that I have not attempted again to go in and get pictures.
When I go to a cemetery, I take pictures of ALL the headstones. There apparently are several cemeteries located on the grounds of Zemurray Park (which I understand used to be open to the public, but it is not any longer). I was told that other people have already been out and made written notations of all the dates on all the headstones in all the cemeteries on the property. I told them that some people would like to see an actual picture of the headstone and this person didn't seem to understand or care that they were (in my estimation) kind of holding these gravesites hostage. Family members are left unable to get in to see the burial site of their loved ones !
I am sorry for this unfortunate situation, but I am considering making another stab at getting in to get pictures, but it may not be until the spring since they seem to be so picky. I'll have to find out when deer season is ! LOL

RE: Arthur, Dorothy, and Gerald Rainey
You're welcome.
I believe that originally the name Rainey was visible on the side of the coping. (That occurs on most of the plots at Ponchatoula Cemetery.) In this case time, settling, and build-up have covered the name.

I am sure that they are not buried in Parklawn Cemetery. I know that the Tangipahoa Tombstone Transcription Project list them there; but a big mistake has been made.
All three Raineys are in Ponchatoula Cemetery. If you make memorials for them there, I have the photos ready to go.

RE: Thank You
You are more than welcome, glad I could get them for you. I can't recall right now which they were, but if I have posted any memorials for any of them I will be more than happy to transfer to you. Glad you were able to fill in some blanks on your family tree - always a good feeling!

RE: Thank You
Actually, I was going thru photos I took several years ago and that was one of them, but glad I was got around to adding it. Glad to help

RE: Vern Bailey in Roselawn Cemetery,Baton Rouge, LA
I found Vern Bailey and have added his grave stone photo. If, for whatever reason, you are not happy with it, I can try again in the afternoon where the sun will be shining on the opposite side. There were no other Bailey stones in the area where Vern is interred.
