What else can I find on this blog?

Dear Readers,

Louisiana Genealogy Blogs - Help create links to other genealogy blogs in Louisiana! If you have a Louisiana genealogy blog, please send me a link. You can find links to other genealogy blogs from a variety of sources below this blog. There are links to news stories about genealogy in Louisiana (when that Google thing works - tx Google!) and genealogy tags from Word Press, Louisiana posts from Cousin Connect, and posts from the genealogy community at Live Journal. You may also find other networking websites linking here interested in genealogy and a whole slew of other genealogy blogs. Most of the Louisiana Parishes RootsWeb mailing lists are found linked to the left. I have found these to be the most helpful. Maybe, you will, too.

Let me know if I can be of any assistance to you. Feel free to post to the forum or the Louisiana Surname - Louisiana Researchers list and if you're feeling rather adventurous, you can join the Yahoo!Group, too. I try to update the surname list on a monthly basis. You can read the entire four and one half pages of the Louisiana Surnames Louisiana Researchers list here. And if that is giving you trouble (it does sometimes), go here.

I would like to encourage other Louisiana genealogy bloggers to copy the profile I created from Blogger. It assists others in finding you in every parish in Louisiana! There are useful social tools like Add This at the bottom of the blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

Natchitoches Parish Query

I am a volunteer researcher for the Texas Peace Officers Memorial. On 31 March 1906, Norton R. Moody was deputized by Nacogdoches County deputy sheriff Will Alders to quiet a house party in the Woden community. A shoot-out occurred and Moody was killed. A newspaper article mentioned he was buried in Pea Ridge. I have been unable to find the burial place of Moody in Nacogdoches or Shelby counties.

Norton R. Moody was born about 1867-1870 in Louisiana, the son of William & Acey Moody. He was listed in the 1880 Census of Nacogdoches County, but by 1900 he was living in Shelby County. He married Cora Furlow 16 December 1886 in Shelby County. At the time of the 1900 Census they had the following children: Azzie (dau), b. ca October 1889; Elsie, b. ca September 1892; Norman, b. ca April 1896; and Allen, b. ca January 1899.

Cora (Furlow) Moody later moved to Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana and died there in 1946. The Lufkin Library sent me a clip from The Weekly Sentinel, 8 March 1900 (Mrs. Lee Cordova) that mentions the Pea Ridge-Stringtown community and her burial at the cemetery near Frank Lazarine. I found the Lazarine Cemetery and Moody is not there. Texas maps and Google only produce a Stringtown in Newton County. Does anyone know where Norton is buried? Is he in Shelby County? Would appreciate hearing from anyone having information on this family.
