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!

Ashton Plantation and an Inquest

Family Friends and Neighbors (St. Charles Parish, Louisiana) piqued my interest of Ashton Plantation with this post about an inquest that was held in 1883. LSU Libraries has a broadside for the cotton growing Ashton Plantation of East Carroll Parish. USGenWeb LAGenWeb Archives announces that sugarcane grown in St. Charles Parish, Louisiana, four miles below Hahnville, Louisiana, was produced there. Genealogy Trails.com declares that Ashton Plantation was in New Orleans, Louisiana and produced a sugar crop.

"We have received the champion blue-ribbon stalk of sugar cane from the Ashton plantation four miles below Hahnville. It contains ten red joints, well-developed, and is the largest we have seen this season." St. Charles Herald, 28 Jul 1883 http://files.usgwarchives.org/la/stcharles/newspapers/herald/07281883.txt
The Sankofa Wiki has produced a little information about the Ashton Plantation of
East Carroll Parish, Louisiana.

The LSU broadside, available on microfilm, declares the sale of Ashton Plantation
along with 98 slaves in 1859. Ashton consisted of 1,800 acres on Bayou Macon
and the Mississippi River. It was owned by Dr. William Webb Wilkins.

There is currently a subdivision named, Ashton Plantation, in St. Charles Parish, Louisiana.

More: 44 British Bull Dog Revolver Wiki
Describes that the gun is only suitable for use at point blank range and is an American made
handgun that began production about 1878.

  • Where is the 2nd Ward in St. Charles Parish 1883?
  • Who was the 2nd Ward Justice of the Peace in St. Charles Parish 1883?
  • Who is Joseph Clendon? (Could this be Mclendon instead of Clendon?)
  • Is the Morgan Flowers listed in the CWSS system the same man?

    Flowers, Morgan Co. D



    5th Regiment, South Carolina Infantry

BLM GLO records indicate ONE surname record for a James M. Clendon in Louisiana in Clairborne Parish, Louisiana 1861. There were numerous surname land owners in Louisiana, Flowers, however, no Morgan Flowers.The closest BLM records of the surname were listed in "Carroll Parish" according to the document. BLM GLO states that this is West Carroll, but the document image stated "Carroll Parish". Odd. Sometimes you may find other names or military information on the documents of the BLM GLO records that can give you clues. No such luck this time. LAGenWeb did not have Ward Maps listed that could be immediately found, but, I'll keep searching.
