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!

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.
