My name is Shanna (yes, named after the book). I live in the southern U.S. with my five cats (Gia, JoJo, Maggie, Max, & Abby) and adorable, Cajun fiance, Baret. My personal website is skatoolaki.com; my graving journal/blog can be found at Graver's Journal. I am also the Iberville Parish Keeper, here at FAG.
I'm 35 and a true-blue Scorpio (Nov. 6). I'm a web designer and a writer with some published work, and enough unfinished work to fill a large library.
I have always had a passion and interest in cemeteries...being a writer, I can't help but imagine what the lives of each name on each headstone were like.
One of the cemeteries that touched me most was Brandon Hall Cemetery, just off the Natchez Trace, in Mississippi. Taking the names and dates found there, I began my research into this family and to see what happened to the many children buried there...the fruits of my labor became The Brandon Children; a site and project I am continually working on.
I am also - finally - actively researching my family own history (and using F.A.G. to preserve information on final resting places and short bios). Surnames from the Avoyelles, Pointe Coupee, St. Landry, and Iberville parishes that I'm always on the lookout for include (but aren't limited to!) Beauvais, Nugent, Prestenback, Charrier, Guerin, Deauville, Guillory, and Juneau. My work appears on my site, Louisiana Lineage.
Finally, if I have added any of your family/friends and you would like to take ownership or have changes made, please just let me know.

Mayola Mary Bernard My daughter n law does not remember where her mother was buried. From what she told me, it is possibly St. Joseph's Baptist Church Cemetery, which is on Bayou Road. I would go myself, but because of illness, I have not been able to do much. Skatoolaki, if you run across her grave site, please let me know.
