John Elam Scruggs
Of course. The link has been added. The Scruggs, Finch, Davis, and March families are all interrelated, back in Bedford County, TN. My great grandfather's first wife was Susan Catherine "Kittie" Scruggs, a daughter of John Elam Scruggs and his second wife. Two of his brothers also married women with Finch and Scruggs and March connections.

Anderson in Earl Cem.
The way this works is that the one who entered the person is the only one who can link people. In this case it would be find a grave. I'm not sure if they can help you but you could also add a "Flower" and put you info in that.

RE: Link request 96271345 to her father
Whoops! I saw your bio page and the picture with the name Pat by it and thought I was reading your bio. I guess it was a message from another member. If you don't have any connection to Grand Coteau, please disregard my email. Sorry!

RE: Link request 96271345 to her father
I just sent you an email. I'm trying to trace family from Grand Coteau. Maybe we're related!

Haw/Millard/Smith genealogy
Dear Pat,

I am a descendant of John F. Smith (John Francis de Sales Smith, Jean Francois de Sales Smith) of Grand Coteau, Louisiana. The Louisiana marriage index on lists John F. Smith and Sarah Ann Haw being married on 24 Sep 1866. Both had been previously married and their spouses had died. I found from your "" site that Henry Jackson Millard died during the war and I thank you for that information. I knew that Olivia Guilbeau Smith died 19 Dec 1863. Also, John F. Smith's wife in the census is "Olivia" in 1850 and 1860, but "Sarah" in 1870 and 1880, but the children are consistent so I'm sure it's the same family.

I found another genealogical listing from Lee Crockett that has the marriage of John F. Smith and Sarah Ann Haw. She has the date of Sarah Haw's death as 3 Jan 1883, and John F. Smith died 12 Oct 1883. I contacted her and found that these dates are from courthouse records indexed by the late Fr. Hebert or his organization. I think it is probable they are buried at St. Charles Borromeo cemetery in Grand Coteau, but I don't know for sure, or how the names might be spelled in cemetery records. John and Sarah apparently did not have any children so it doesn't affect my genealogy. The Smith family was very prominent in Grand Coteau, the census records John F. Smith as a lawyer and teacher.

I also noticed you have an inconsistent date in the listing of Edward Millard's wife Eleanor. She gave the bell to the church (and the money for the tower) after her husband's death in 1882, but you have her death as 1865. Since Lee Crockett has Fr. Hebert's organization CD of SW Louisiana records, I asked her to check any information about Eleanor. She said that CD states that Eleanor died 2 Dec 1895. The name is misspelled "Miller", but it is Millard on the succession filed 10 days later. Your site has pictures of the graves, but the dates (if inscribed on the crosses) are not readable.

With best wishes,
Patrick Marcotte
