Bio and Links

I graduated Minden (LA) High School in the 1960s. After my children had families of their own and I retired from the USPS, I got involved, once again, in genealogy. I have just marveled at all the wonderful work from people at Find A Grave. So much has happened in the last few years that I am wonderfully amazed.
On my mom's side is CAMP and MOESS / MACE / MAESS / and the German spelling that I'm not sure of. The Moess family that I'm familiar with is in Minden (LA) City Cemetery. I understand there were siblings of F. J. Moess in Cleveland, Ohio, who manufactured cigars in the late 1800s: A phone directory around 1885 or 1890 had 2 MACE names listed in cigar mfg. Another brother went to New Zealand. Unfortunately, the family home was broken into and all that information, along with some paintings Mr. Moess did were stolen, along with family letters written in German. Mr. Moess painted scenes on stage coaches for a living. Maggiore, Fuller, Breazelle, and Glass are names I've been trying to connect.
The Camp family: my grandfather was one of 22 children of his dad's. His mom died when he was 13. Barrington, Monzingo, Fuller, Morris, Disotell, Shaw, Ford, Merritt, Black, Kulish, Edwards, Brahle are just of the few names in this lineage. Many are buried in Pine Grove, north of Minden. Some of the family is buried in MS. Some of the family is in Fuller Cemetery at Nine-Forks. I would love to know where my granddaddy's family was when: he was baptized at Beech Springs. These locations, including Warsaw, are all around Minden. There was a Niceville listing. It took me awhile to find out that was near Shongaloo.
On my dad's side were many children. My dad was one of 12 children. His parents each came from equally large families: WEST and Dugal / Dougal / Doogle / Deoogle. Other names were McCormick, McBroom, Hicks, of the generations before my dad.
My best wishes and THANKS to all the Find A Grave volunteers. Alicia

RE: Henry Nelson Craig
In the 1940 census I found living in Hattiesburg, H M Craig 44, wife Harriet 40, and sons Henry M 20, Jack 18. In 1935 they all are living in Terre Haute,Indiana. I looked in a city directory for Hattiesburg 1941 and didn't find them listed. June(SMGHS)

Henry Nelson Craig
Henry Nelson Craig and Harriet Frost were married in Forrest County, Mississippi on 7 Sept 1918. In 1940 they are living in Hattiesburg, MS with their 2 sons. I didn't find them on the census in 1920 or 1930 but since it appears he was career U S Air Force they could have been anywhere. June (SMGHS)

RE: PROBLEM Re: Georgia N. Paden vs. Georgia Paden Webster
Just saw your response. I have deleted the picture for 1926 Georgia. Next week I begin taking pictures of sites I have missed. I will have to add 1903 Georgia to the list.

She is currently linked with Russell as a spouse. That is what appears in the Violett Index located at the Goshen Public Library. The Soc Security index shows her birthday at 1903 yet the gravestone shows 1926. Do we have two different women?

I have changed the last name on her memorial. Both names appear on the tombstone. I looked through my records. I had the photo, but for some reason had forgotten to add it. It is now been added.

Georgia Paden Webster
It appears that Georgia had two husbands. I have added a second husband to her site. The Violett Cemetery index book located in Goshen Public Library has her maiden name as Paden. That index book was published in 1997. It looks like someone placed an edit using a different maiden name.
There is a picture of her tombstone with her second husband but it does not show a death year. She may have had her name added to the stone but will have to check with Violett Cemetery to see if she is actually buried there.

Dora Glass Meyer
Hi, thanks for contacting me about this. Can you tell me which year the census showed a Sol Meyer living in Shreveport? Dora Glass Meyer's headstone says she was the wife of Theo. Meyer. I'm pretty positive this is not the Dora Sol Meyer of Monroe was married to. He had just married Dora Hoffman when she got ill and died weeks into the marriage. Sol and his brother, Sig Meyer, ran a huge mercantile store, Meyer Bros. in Monroe starting in the 1870's.

I have no idea why she won't come up for you but she's there. Here is the link to the memorial that I created for her in 2007:

RE: Allen, Mary Jane West 42691953
The previous message to you concerning Mary Jane West was correct. She is not buried at that cemetery. She removed to Louisiana and died there.

Mary Jane West
Birth 24 NOV 1844 Alabama
Death Spearsville Cemetery Spearsville Union Parish Louisiana

Gabriel died in Hamberg Arkansas but a tombstone for him is in Louisiana at the Spearsville Cemetery in Louisiana.

You can create a family Cemetery and locate it where you think a loved one died. That way you can link family together. If the actual burial is ever found you can hear about it and change the information etc

I decend from the Allen family
