Bio and Links
I became interested in genealogy in the 1960's (pre-computer) after a cousin did research on my paternal line going back to the 1400's. Led me to research going forward and expand to include my maternal line as well as my spouse and former spouse's families.
Came to the realization how closely related multi-generations families that have lived in Avoyelles Parish Louisiana are. If you have a connection to Avoyelles, then you're probably some cousin of mine.

Please feel free to share, copy, or print any of my pictures for your personal use or for your family records.

Mary Martha Humphries Cavender
Would you know if Mary is laid next to her daughteer Mary Fletcher Schiflett. The GPS makes it seem like they are next to each other.
Their numbers are Mary M. Cavender 139409438 and Mary F. Schiflett 139409498.
Thanks for your help.

Happy to make the transfer. I recently move out of state and will no longer be able to work on this cemetery. If you find any one else you would like to maintain, please let me know.

Thanks for the picture of Pythian Cemetery. I'm new to this site and didn't know there was a picture of it. My great grandparents are buried there. William Coats Grayson and Winona Bushnell Grayson. Kevin Grayson

For Hernandez Lemoine
Is there anyway if you were given the date of birth and death if you could put it on there? And could you also add a little information on there as well about him. Please get back to me at

Thank you for photographing the gravestone of Steve Alford in Cushman Cemetery. I appreciate it!

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Louisiana Obituaries, where his obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, I will add this to the photo caption:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Native of Marksville [or your full name if you like]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!
