New members and visitors to Louisiana Genealogy Blogs

I’d like to welcome new members to the Yahoo Group and say thanks for the following cities/towns recent visits to the blog this week from Missouri, Texas; Biloxi, Mississippi, Huntsville, Alabama; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Sumiton, Alabama; Beaumont, Texas; and Yazoo City, Mississippi.

I’ve heard of the city or town of  Louisiana, Missouri, but I’ve never heard of  a Missouri, Texas!  That was a treat.

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day.  I spent my weekend searching local graveyards and cemeteries for a 3rd great uncle’s grave.  I couldn’t find him so I placed a call to the cemetery, who said that they recognized the name and have seen his grave on occassion.  The cemetery said that they would locate him on a cemetery plot map for me and I am waiting to hear back from them.  I will likely call back today to see if they’ve looked up his location in their archives.  The cemetery is split into three sections and is rather large, so I’m sure there are several books of plot information to look into for locations.  I hope to know soon.  My 3rd great uncle had no immediate family in the 1930’s and he was buried by members of the Eagles.
