I became interested in family history as a result of a grade school project in 1973. I would catch a city bus and ride to the genealogy department of the State Library in Austin, Texas where I would scan microfilmed census records and flip through the indexes of various hardbound materials. Upon resuming my research efforts, I became aware of what wonderful resources are now available on the internet---one of the best of which being findagrave.com. Inspired by the work begun by Sheila Leamons Johnson, I'm working to identify the descendants of my Gr-Gr-Great Grandparents, two pioneers of the Missouri Territory as early as 1811: Abraham and Jemima Leamons; additionally, building upon the research of the late Judge Albert Tate, I am working to identify the descendants of my Gr-Gr-Gr-Gr-Great Grandfather, William Bundick of Louisiana, by both his first wife, Mary Hay, and his second wife, Hessina Barker. Additional Leamons research can be accessed through the website hot link below. Additional Bundick family research is posted at Bundicks of Louisiana and Texas

Leamon and Brown ancestors I had Brown ancestors in Claiborne then became Bienville Parish and believe my line may relate to James Hugh Brown--have been trying to figure it out. My Robert Brown married Lucinda/Lucy Barnes and they later moved to Texas just before the Civil War. Am trying to locate other Brown researchers in that area. Would love to compare notes and share.

Walter Franklin McClung Michael, I wonder if you know the wife of Walter F. McClung? I've found his memorial, but can't locate his wife's memorial. I sure would appreciate any help about his spouse, and children. Thank You. William Latham
I visited Old Ebenezer Cemetery near Bienville, LA a couple of times about 20 years ago. I took pictures and looked around quite a bit for Brown tombstones. I didn't find any. Are the stones for Mary and Susanna relatively new? I was told years ago that James Hugh, Mary, Jame's dad, John C., Susanna's son, Jasper were there. I was also told that the graves originally had wooden "arbors" over them that the families would decorate with flowers, etc. on holidays.
James Hugh and Mary were my g,g-grandparents.
I would sure like to know if I missed those stones or if they are fairly recent.
Thanks for any info.
