My mother was an only child but she tried to pass on family memories and history from "Bayou Salle", Louisiana. This was like 7 miles from the Gulf Of Mexico. Franklin, La. is there now but that is as far as could get for now but across a railroad track is a small town now called "Bayou Sale"?? Per my mother, my Great Great grandmother PRISCILLA bought her HUSBAND off a SLAVE SHIP. Bayou her father who had to have an Indian Chief for her to do that.I am 1/4th. PRISCILLA SALLE died in Shreveport in 1932-1933 per my mother. Trying to find all of my ROOTS my Mom is now deceased but I feel I have other relatives. Maybe in FRANCE, the Indian Last name is SALLE possibly derived from the French Explorer "La Salle"?? Tried tracing the tribes there in Bayou Sale's Burial Grounds could not find? It is there. PLEASE HELP!

Seen the article on the clean up of Restlawn Cemetery in Houston, Texas. My husband's father was buried there in May 1973. Did not see his name listed. All I know is that he had a marker on ground. When clean up was made, was there any graves unmarked and not accounted for. His name was Lloyd Garner. Is there a contact person for this cemetery you are aware of. Thanks for any help. Also, currently researching Honore and Campbell in Louisiana. Its been fun.

The address given for the Greenwood Town Cemetery appears to be incorrect. The location at Market and Stoner Ave is actually Greenwood Cemetery in Shreveport, LA. The Greenwood Cemetary in Greenwood, LA does not show up when yo map it on Google. To get to the cemetary, from I-20 go north on Greenwood-Moriningsport Rd (169); turn right on McGhee Rd/Cemetery Rd; then left on Greenwood Cemetary Rd.

Please note that I have not physically confirmed this information and will not be able to do so until I return to the Shreveport area for the Christmas holiday. I am almost certain that my ancestor, Amanda Thompson, is buried in the Greenwood LA cemetery and not Shreveport.

Great site, informative and very well put together. I received a message from Ancestry.com because one of my relatives, Corrine (Cora) Murdock was married to Luke Allen. About 1900 they lived at 958 Spraque St. in Shreveport, LA. Cora was 25 and Luke was 27. I think Luke Allen was a minister. Cora & Luke did not have any children.

So far this is one of the best Northwest Louisiana site I have found. But I couldn't find any reference to the Diggs, Toby and Maria family before 1880 Cenus living in Bossier City. Your cemteries records was great but what about cemteries on church ground only known by the church name? I will continue to used this site.

Again thanks, for your help.

My family is in the process of planning our family reunion in Monroe in July 2011. We have been fortunate to discover an extensive history of our family but much is still missing. Many references in your website match or enhance the information we currently have. We are descendants of Morgan and Maria Hutchinson slaves on the Cash Point Plantation (later Hard Times and New Hope Plantations) owned by the Gilmer-Spyker family. Your website is awesome. I will continue to review it and hope to add valuable information to it in the near future.

I'm trying to find a gentleman by the name of Floyd Muckelberry. he's buried in the Evergreen cemetary. I'm not sure if he was a buffalo soldier or not. he was with the 331 service Division. I know what I;m going to tell you may sound crazy to you but, I'm and its for real. I'm a paranormal investigator and someone told me about the cemetary in Houston Tx. I went out there for my second time today and came across his grave. Anyways, when i did, my ghost meter was going off. I had gotten confirmed responses on my meter as yes questions answered. I have been doing this for 9 yrs so i know what can be out there. Anyways, i talked to him and with his responses to my questions for 10 min., I'm really wanting to know more about this man and his position and if possile, a picture of what he looks like. I really would appreciate it if you could help me. I will leave you my cell# and work # you can call me at if you find anything.

Hi George,

I have been a visitor of this site for quite some time but never knew about a connection until now. Thank you for your prompt response to our inquiry about the Stephens Family on Ancestry. My husband's family are the Stephens and Williams of Louisiana. My father's family are the Wax and Morris families of Claiborn, Morehouse,& Quachita Parishes.

My daughter and I look forward to exchanging info and family stories with you soon about her great grandmother Luddie Bell Stephens-Williams whom we had the opportunity to spend time with before her homegoing. Her legacy and memory have been the foundation of our family. What an awesome project and legacy you and your cousin have on Red River Sankofa. Blessings to you and your families, and your project.

The Outlaw is a term used by Aunt Girtha and myself by the Williams inlaws. LOL

Hi,
I've connected with Mr Allen on ancestry where I have membership. It appears that we are related since my great aunt Sally Turner married a John Ford, and my Great Great aunt, Rose Turner married Garrett S Ford.(my mother told me of her rememberance of her Aunt Rose & her family)
If you can access ancestry.com, please feel free to extract information from my family tree(which is still a work in progress) and any photos that are there. If you wish for me to email photos and documents in my possession to you, please contact me.

Just curious...This cannot be a photo of Union Chapel Cemetery, can it? Union Chapel is our family cemetery(located on Rt3 behind the remains of Union Chapel Church. This land is on private property, belonging to the heirs of Lucinda Gates). The cemetery is in a state of disrepair and I am attempting to initiate a cleanup and restoration of sorts there. My mother was buried there in 2007 next to her parents, Abe & Malinda Turner. There is much work to be done there. I can send you photos I took in 2008...but they are nothing to be proud of.
Please keep in touch.

You have a wonderful site and even a more wonderful project! I'm glad I came across this site. I found it through ancestry.com of a possible connection of Kate James (my gggrandmother).

Even if there isn't a true connection, this is such a wonderful thing you are doing and if I can offer any help at all, I would be greatly honored.

Please email me. We lost touch. I moved after mom passed away. I'd like to send you some more photos, information.

Actually, it was my brother who funded the restoration of the Paysinger desk. Unfortunately, he passed away on
Mar, 29 after a sudden, brief illness.

Your site site is phenomenal and I'm happy to see it still growing. I'd like to help see this project grow and be able to connect with more slave descendents in the NW La area.

Hi,
I was recently in Coushatta and Colfax with decedents of Marshall Harvey Twitchell. In Coushatta we heard stories from the decedents of Twitchell's white supremacist enemies. In Colfax Avery Hamilton gave us a much more balanced perspective on the massacre there. I'm looking for an African American perspective on Twitchell who from my research appears to be an early civil rights hero.
Thanks for your time.

This is a beautiful site and a tribute to your ancestors! I noticed under marriages that you have Annie Head m. 1891 LA to Willie Belcher. Belcher is one of my collateral lines and I am following Willie Belcher Sr (b. ca 1868 or 1871 LA) m1. ca 1892 to Annie in LA. 4 Children b. bet 1893-1898 per census: Carry, Caroline, Fannie m. _____ Durst, and Willie. Willie Sr. later married Gracie Briggs and had 7 children. Could his first wife be your Annie Head? While Willie Sr was b. LA, he also had siblings b. SC (same white Belcher father - but who knows which one). Some of these were the grandchildren of Williamson Norwood who had been one of the largest slaveholders in Abbeville Co, SC prior to his death in 1848. I'm looking for info on which of his descendants inherited which enslaved people. Willie Sr's family ended up in OK. Thanks for a wonderful page & for any clues you can offer.

Comments:
I would like to offer my assistance to your important project, for whatever little help it may be worth.

One of my ancestors was E. W. Hodges who is listed in your records as one of the slaveholders in Bossier Parish, Lousiana in the 1860 census. My maternal grandparents (Thomas Edmund Hodges and Mae Crawford Hodges) and greatgrandparents (E.W. Hodges and Augusta Applewhite Hodges) are buried in the Applewhite Cemetery just east of Cotton Valley in what is now Webster Parish (until 1871 it was part of Bossier Parish). My mother, Annabel Lee Hodges Bertrand, who is now 92 years old, often visited her father's mother (Augusta Applewhite Hodges in Cotton Valley) and drew a beautiful portrait of an African-American woman who had been one of the slaves of the Hodges family and whom my mother was close to when she was young. Several years ago, a cousin walked me around some of the area around Cotton Valley where my ancestors lived and farmed, pointing out some graves of slaves that were lost in the woods.

I am an educator (currently executive director of the National Peace Foundation and former president of Brevard College in the mountains of western North Carolina) living in Pisgah Forest, NC.

I would be happy to share with your project what little information our family possesses about our Hodges ancestors in Webster (formerly Bossier) Parish, Louisiana.

You mentioned the Sentell family, and I assume that they are a white family.
I have an old photo of my aunt(who died before I was born.) In the photo, my aunt is holding a little white infant. My mom told me that the little baby girl was a member of the Sentell family for whom my aunt worked for. The photo was taken in the 1940's.
