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!

Cora Smith Maynard daughter of Issac N. Maynard

The stanza's are out of order, but numbered.  No record at F.A.G. Beautiful poem, don't you think? Cora was 19 years old when she died. This pdf file lists more information on Issac, who was manager and or assistant manager (as there are two Isaac N. Maynards father and son) of the New Orleans Clearinghouse Association. There is still more of Isaac N. Maynard, who became divorced in 1859 from Mary Baines, one year after the birth of Cora Smith Maynard. I'm not positive that Mary Baines was the mother of Cora with a middle surname such as Smith.  The earlier document of Confederate Military Manuscripts states that Isaac N. Maynard married Antionette D. Baines.  Is this Mary Baines? Still another pdf from the NYT on the business of the Association in 1893. In 1885 there appears to be an Isaac Maynard, Jr. and a Harry Maynard all living with Isaac N. Maynard at 218 Third Street.  The Association was located at 31 Camp St.
I would love to find Cora's burial.  I imagine it would be as elaborate as the poem. I wonder where she's buried?
