Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Princess Lynn O'Brien ( madien name Roddy ). I am the daughter of Joseph Thomas Roddy Jr. of Galvez, Louisiana and Carol Ann LeBlanc of Sorrento, Louisiana. I married May 22, 1982 in Columbia, Mississippi to Richard Erwin O'Brien. He is the son of William Earl O'Brien of Bogalusa, Louisiana and Betty Louise Thomas of Thomas Town, Louisiana. I have three boys. Joshua DeWayne, Jonathan Ervin and James Daniel O'Brien.

As a little girl I was interested in history and loved to hear old family stories. As I got older, I got involved in genealogy. I have been researching my Louisiana family roots since the early 90's.
By this time I was married and moved from the Louisiana area. Every time we took a trip home I visit the family cemeteries and took several pictures to bring home so I could visit my loved one's in a photo album since I couldn't visit them at a grave site. Later on I found and thought that was a wonderful idea. Now I can not only visit my family away from home but share what I have. I want my family to be remembered forever.

RE: Nancy Roddy Cousnarde
I am meeting with the St. Joseph Cemetery Sexton this coming Wednesday. I will try to photograph as many as I can of the names you mention. I've printed out your text and will have it with me to show to the Sexton.

It's hard to find the graves, as there are no "landmarks," and many are covered with dirt and grass.

But, the Sexton is a "Walking Encyclopedia," and knows literally "where all the bodies are buried."

Is Beulah Brunet Roddy the daugheter of Acklin Brunet?
I found your record via which led me to showing your entry of Beulah Brunet Roddy. I'm trying to locate the ancestry tree for Joseph Brunet --> Ackin Brunet (son of Joesph) and then Angelo Brunet and Beulah Brunet (children of Acklin). Do you have any information on this ancestry line?

Thank for any help you can provide.

My daughter and I visited and took photos for you today. They are uploaded.

We could not find:
-Infant Howe. There were several children graves with crosses as markers or they weren't marked.
-Louisa Lambert. The only one we found was Louisa Lambert Lessard (1914-1987) This person already has a Find A Grave and the years didn't match up. We couldn't find any others with the same name of Louisa Lambert.
-Lucille Lessard. The only one we found doesn't match. The dates for the one we found was 1864-1948. Everything else matched with the name, but the dates don't.

I didn't mark these as "report a problem" on the claim page case someone else can find more of these than I did. It was extremely muddy/water standing. Hopefully I didn't overlook anything.

I added these pictures for you. My daughters and I walked the cemetery and couldn't find any of the others you had requested in that cemetery.

There was a flood in 1983 and supposedly stories I had heard were tombstones and caskets were floating in the water and lost/replaced wrong. I'm not sure how true that is as I was in elementary school at the time, but I'm wondering if that is what happened to some of the tombstones you are looking for.
