"37 yr., 5 mo."

Grave indexed by the DAR in the early 1960's for their Louisiana Tombstone Inscriptions Series, Volume XVII, Page 106.

Months may be miss transcribed. The headstone photo shows what looks to be an "8".

Abe was a private in Company B, 27th Louisiana Infantry during the Civil War. The company was known as the "Bouef River Rebels" and formed from men living in Franklin Parish. Captured after the battle of Vicksburg and paroled.

Shown on the 1860 Franklin Parish census in the household of R.S. Boughton. R.S.'s wife Elizabeth was Abraham's sister.

Shown on the 1870 Richland Parish census in the home of Larkin Jamar (probably a brother). Also in the household was another possible brother, Joseph Jamar (20).


Possibly the son of Larkin and Frances Ann Bransford Jamar. They were married in Madison County, AL September 17, 1834 and were living in Franklin parish on the 1860 Census.

The Jamar family was living in Clarke County, AL in 1850. (Ancestry mistranscribed the last name as Jemas). Abraham is 7 years old.

Abraham and his family are listed in his grandfather Abram/Abraham Bransford's 1857 probate in Madison County, AL. At the time, the family was in Noxubee County, MS.

It appears Abe never married.
