Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've discovered several forgotten graves and small family cemeteries over the years, while involved in my work or hunting, and wanted to list them on Find A Grave. Many of the people buried in these graves are some of the earliest settlers in north Louisiana and deserve our respect and admiration. I'll do my best to see that they are not forgotten.

Photo of Coonrad Cancellor Allen
I was surprised to see a photograph of Coonrad. He is my Great-Great-Grandfather. Could you tell me where the photo came from?

RE: Finding graves
Thank you for your kind response. I have a pretty good idea who my father was through DNA matches, but have not contacted his family at this time. My intention is not to intrude in anyones' life, but simply to find my birth Father.
Thank you again for your work.

RE: Solomon's Parents, James E. and Eleanor Norwood Chandler
I appreciate your quick reply but sorry you do not have the documentation to get through our brick wall. All the family trees that I have seen have James E.'s wife as Eleanor Norwood but nobody has a source for the Norwood. Thanks.

Solomon's Parents, James E. and Eleanor Norwood Chandler
Solomon Chandler is my great grandfather and I have much information on him but need documentation for his parents--proof of James E. Chandler's marriage to Eleanor Norwood, proof of his parents, etc. I would appreciate any help you can provide.

James E. Chandler
My ancestors James E. Chandler and wife Eleanor Norwood have little information of their marriage and death and where they're buried. Could you help me with this?

He is the husband of my 5th cousin 1x removed. May I use his gravestone photos in my Family Tree? I will gladly give you credit. Thank you so much, Terry
