Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family since 1971 and descend from many of the founding families of the Ouachita Parish area. I think this is a great website to preserve the information sometimes only available on the cemetery markers, as well as a place to post photos of past generations for everyone to enjoy. I hope many more will join me in recording and sharing!

Some of the families I am researching are: Carter (NC, SC, TN, AR)
Gordon (NC, TN, AR)
Moore (KY, LA)
Laster (LA)
Shipley (OH, LA)
Earle (LA)
Gilly-Gilley (LA)
Duncan (LA)
Jumper (Schumpert) (SC, AL, MS, TX)
Patton (TN, TX)
Hibbard (VT, Canada, OH, TX, LA)
Sides (NC, AL, TX)
Etier (LA)
Olivo (LA)
Eppinette (Epinet) (LA)
Yoist (KY, LA, TX)
Gills (KY, TN, AR)
Milam (VA, TN, MS, LA)
Pailette (LA)
Purl (KY, LA)
Stokes (LA)
Carlton (SC, TN, AR)
Suggs (MS)
Jowers (AL, MS)
Rowland (NC, TN, AR)
Fike (NC, TX)

I enjoy hearing from anyone related to lines, and would like to share research.

Martha Elizabeth "Lizzie" Jackson Kelly
Dear Rhonda,
I read your explanation about Martha's mother.
Her mother is Martha Grimmett .
The mother that you have connectd her with was dead before Martha was born.
Holly died in 1855 , William Jackson being her last child.

I am a Jackson descendent descending from Alfred's sister Elizabeth.

Thank you,

John Meyer

Rebecca Harrel Memorial #34021652
Buried in New Salem Cemetery, Richland Parish,La. She was Rebecca Peagler. Married Jackson H. Harrel. She was born 26 Mar 1862, Ms. & died 26 Nov 1922. She is my mother-in-laws grandmother and if possible would like the care of her memorial transferred to me. I have more information on the family and would like to connect the loose ends if possible.

J.E Fike
You have a photo of my grandfather's headstone posted. His name is J.E. Fike (Jesse Elmer Fike) and is buried in New Salem cemetery in Rayville, Richland Parish, Louisiana. First, I'd like to thank you for posting it. I was able to show it to my mother (his daughter) and it meant a great deal to her. He died by accident when she was five years old and it's been many, many years since she's been to his gravesite. If you think you are of some relation to him, I'll be happy to fill in any blanks I can for you....thanks again!

Where did you get the photo of My great grandfather
I am Clophire's great grandson. Is that Saraphine next to him? I am sure it is. I am curious. I am starting my own family tree. Clophire and Saraphine gave birth to Buford which is my granfather. He gave birth to my dad Clophire "Pete" Viola. He was named after his grandfather. I am Pete Viola's son. Also who are the two pictured beside Clophire and Saraphine?
