Rapides Cemetery
The Historic Rapides Cemetery Preservation Society is working on plotting the graves and repairing some monuments/markers. They are looking for family members to share any stories that they might have, to identify unmarked burials, and to maintain their family's plot. Fundraisers are being planned to raise money for the project. The Society has consulted with gravestone preservationists and is using D/2 biological solution (no wire brushes) to clean the gravestones.

RE: Robert Jacob Wike, Sr
I don't have an obituary for this person. I received a request from his daughter to enter a memorial for him in Find-A-Grave. She said the family didn't have the money to bury him, so he was cremated. He and his son were both veterans. That's all I know about this family. Regards.

A Grant has been acquired to clean up & restore the old Rapides Cemetery in Pineville, LA. As a result some of the headstones have become more legible & new photos are being taken.

RE: Kenion Tarpley Hulsey
The short answer is possibly, but I am not 100% sure that the one you ask about is his son. Until I have more proof I'm giving it a 95%. :)

Kenion Tarpley absolutely had a son on the 1870 Jefferson Co AL census listed as K T age 8. An 1887 newspaper article in Little Rock AK, mentions "Kinney" as the brother of "our sheriff J P Hulsey" which is Joseph Pate, oldest son of Kenion Tarpley. I haven't viewed Kennie Kirklands death certificate but the LA Death Index shows that he was b. est 1865 in Birmingham AL. At the time Kenion Tarpley Hulsey's son in question was born, they lived in Warrior, Jefferson Co AL which is about 30 minutes north of Birmingham just before you cross the next county line. Birmingham is also in Jefferson Co.

It makes sense to me that Kennie Kirkland is K T from the census even though I always leaned toward K T being Kenion Tarpley Jr until I came across all the trees on Ancestry linking Kennie Kirkland and started searching him. Don't have a clue where the Kirkland might have come from.

Are you related?

Best regards,
Debbie Hulsey Zouras

Thank you so much for the great photos of Norman (& Eva) Cauley's headstone. Interesting that part of the burial site is above ground. Do you know why they would have done that? Regards, Kaye

Martha Irving, Jacob Irving Sr.
First of all SFC, thank you for your service. I am new to this ancestry thing but i have discovered the findagrave sight and i am amazed at what all the volunteers have done. I am a great great great grandson of Martha (nee Maria i am told) Besano Irving and Jacob Irving Sr. I am learning more about them every day. I will be wishing to add pictures and other materials to their sites as i continue to go through my family archives. I would love to take responsibility for maintaining their sites if that is possible. Again i am new as this but will be happy to do what i need to to enhance these sites. There is at least one of their children also on here, Judith Irving Cruickshank, my great great grandmother and i will do my best to add more as i can.

RE: Madison Deville
Hi-Since you are involved in Find A Grave links maybe you can tell me the process to get a wrong link undone. Someone has linked Madison Deville # 28707995,To Adeline Ryder, rather than Adeline Elizabeth Lavie, # 28707997. I have the data to link their ch. and 2 are linked with wrong Adaline and hate to see them continue would like to see the error corrected. I greatly appreciate knowing the process for such. thank you in advance, Glenda T

You posted a headstone picture for my gg grandfather in law, Daniel McInnis. I know it's asking a lot, but do you possibly still have the original photo that you would be willing to share? I would really like to be able to enhance the photo with photoshop to see more of the details. Thanks so much for your time. Jacki Gentry

RE: Duplicates
First, I would like to wish you and your family a very happy holiday season. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and second I wanted to thank you for ALL your help with those duplicates. There are only a handful and those have conflicting information on cemeteries but the rest are merged. I have had that VC for a long time and this is the first time it's been such a short list and if it was not for you I would have never gotten it done. I appreciate your help so very much.

If there is anything I can do to help you, please let me know.

Now I can focus on calling funeral homes and obtaining burial information on the burial unknowns that Find A Grave has in their database.

I also use to look up birth and death dates. This process helps make the memorials more complete.

Again, thank you so much!

Happy Holidays,

Have given you correct information twice. You have refused to change both times. Since she is family I will request ownership from admins.

RE: J.M. Barton
I do not know why "J.M." is in the name for James Madison Barton 28454868. None of my records have the "J.M." The Tombstone has the "J.M." and not his full name. It appears there was just not enough room so they just put his initials on it.

Also I noticed that under children (the one on the towards the top that Willie Orleans Mizell should not have an "s" All of my records have Orlean without he "s".

Also. Ethel Barton Slocum 20776152 is in the lower childrens list but not in the top. There should be 10 children on the final list .

James Madison Barton was my grandfather on my mother's side.

Thanks a million,
Carl T. Wright

RE: Barton's
Reply to Arthur Lemuel Barton:

From Page 56 of the book "STOKES A FAMILY HISTORY"
"Arthur Lemuel Barton, son of Julia Ann Stokes Barton and James Madison Barton, was born May 1894 at his parents' home near the present Peniel Baptist Church, Calcasieu Community, Rapides Parish, Louisiana. He married Maggie Weatherford August 4, 1919."
They had 3 Children and she (Maggie) died in 1936. See 28454871.
Arthur got married a second time either before or after he moved to Modesto, California. (I was told by other Bartons That he married the second time before moving to California.) Arthur died February 14, 1967 at Modesto, California. See 138593234. Also The birth year for Arthur should be 1994 not 1884. Also not born in Forrest Hill, LA but Calcasieu Community, LA. (same Parish tho) The record of his 2nd wife (138593346) has the spouse year of birth for Arthur as 1884 and should be 1894. Also on his record the birth day is (11) (June 11, 1894). Other linkage records need to be updated for the correct birth year for Arthur.

I hope this is not confusing as I am just trying to the info as correct as possible.

Thanks a million,
Carl T. Wright

RE: Anthony Henry Richard III
Anthony Jr. was just inurned yesterday - there is no Find A Grave entry for him yet. I don't believe there is one for his mother yet either.
Anthony III is inurned in the Old Cadet Chapel Columbarium Section 34- Row D-Niche BR.
