1891 and 1870 Grant and Carroll Parish and Natchitoches

US Congressional Serial Set 1891 – In this title I read that C. C. Dunn was a plantation owner in Grant Parish. However, in the 1870 Census Christopher C. Dunn is noted to be a Dry Goods Merchant. Further reading you can find the same physician noted in 1891 also living near C. C. Dunn in 1870 Census in Grant Parish.

I attempted to find the plantation of Mrs. A. C. Deal in Grant Parish noted in the US Congressional Serial Set 1891, however, the only A. Deal found was in Carroll Parish where the Census records listed A. Deal 108yo black former Kentuckian living on the Arlington Plantation Carroll Parish. The East Carroll Parish blog notes a Black Bayou Plantation but not a Blackmon Plantation. Blackmon Plantation was the heading at the top of the 1870 Census page 59.  Ann Deal was on page 60, I assume the plantations were next to one another.

The  map below shows Arlington Plantation as it appears in Tourette’s map of 1853 near the center.  I did not see a Blackmon  Plantation on the map which is noted in the 1870 Census, but Black B. is listed Northwest of Arlington. I suppose, the author of the Census is allowed such liberty and it is quite possible that Black Bayou Plantation had another local name by 1870.

E. Sparrow’s plantation is also noted on the 1853 map of Carroll parish, Southeast of Arlington and directly Northwest of Cypress Island  at marker 410 across Mississippi River.

I also browsed this site, Treasures in Louisiana, which makes note of a few treasure stories about Aime in Louisiana.
