Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi I am a retired fire chief and love history, especially family history. I have completed a new survey of the Simsboro Cemetery, the Douglas Cemetery, the Cook Cemetery, Wilder Cemetery, and Pines Memorial Cemetery in Lincoln Parish Louisiana and have downloaded it to FAG. I also placed a printed copy of several at the Lincoln Parish Library which includes family history from The Cemetery Associations.

I have photographed every marker in the Douglas Cemetery, the Cook Cemetery, the Simsboro Cemetery, the Wilder Cemetery, and Pines Memorial Gardens in Lincoln Parish, but haven't got all of them posted to FAG yet but working slowly on that. If you have one you want let me know and I will try to get it posted as quick as I can.

I and would love to help others find family in Lincoln Parish. I discovered the value of this site on a recent trip to Kansas, when we found some of my wife's relative's thru Find A Grave.

If you have additional information for any of the memorials I have added, please send it to me and I will add it to them. If you have photos of anyone, please feel free to add them or send them to me and I will add them. I will also add relationship links.

If you meet the Find a Grave relationship guidelines for a transfer. I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you. Please don't add a duplicate memorial.

Someone created a memorial for her while she was still alive under her first married name (frowned upon by Find A Grave) and I suspect that is where she is buried, under the name Fowler. I'll alert the person who created the memorial and take mine down once they have done the necessary housekeeping.

Houston, we have a problem...

Her obituary through Kilpatrick Funeral Homes clearly states she was buried there. I added the obit to her listing. You can look at it there or here. I originally pulled the info from the death notices we were sent by the funeral homes when I edited them for The Times at Shreveport.

Here's a link to her obit online.

Perhaps the funeral home records are incomplete. If Arlington National Cemetery can screw up, so can local cemeteries.

Ira Baxter Marker
Ira Baxter is not buried at Douglas Cemetery. Most of his family is buried there but he is buried in Mulhearn Memorial Park in Monroe, La.

It is not my duplicate Mr Donnie, I just noticed as I was adding some pictures yesterday. I will send the info in as an edit to the other contributor though and let you know when I'm done so you can delete. Thank you for all you do!
