Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family tree since April of 2011, and so far have over 10,000 family members. I have learned a lot from doing this and have enjoyed every moment! I have traveled many miles to get photos, information, & many documents! I have met many of my living relatives and would love to bring them all home with me but that is impossible! I embrace each and every one of them as if I had known them my whole life, but have known them, or met SOME only once! My life has been enlightened and enriched by this journey. If you are able to physically do this, please do it before you become disabled. You might be surprised how friendly America really is by doing so. Lots of warm, friendly, helpful, & EXTREMELY nice people out there to help in your journey!

Please remember the rules for using photos that you didn't take yourself. Give credit where credit is due!

Any corrections or transfers will be gladly taken care of.

Cemetery photography
Saint John Church Cemetery #1
Caddo Parish
Louisiana, USA

I appreciate your photography efforts on this cemetery. It is a very difficult cemetery to record, and photograph, especially in the tree line. Note, suggest you go as far as 15' deep to possibly find more graves because nature reclamation has been active for decades.

Regards,

JB Berry

RE: Rebecca Jane Rowell Coleman
I haven't been able to determine who her parents are. The 1850 census has her birthplace as Marion but I've found in the past that it says that for almost everyone in that census year. Whether or not it's true.

"You have obviously been to this cemetery and taken these photos but none are where I could zoom in to look better. He is a relative of mine and I have his date of birth as Aug 1855 in case you were wondering."
Yes I have been there many times, Sorry but do not know if the slab is even readable now, Or if this is just a longview of where he is buried , but there should be a marker ?? but unreadable because Mr. Hayes did the survey in 1948 and seen the dates on a marker, this is why I go to the cemeteries and take pictures, some are hard to read and Thanks to Find A Grave we now have a place to put the pictures that may not be readable in 20 years :-(.
Sorry I could not help you

RE: Cisero Herrin-Byrd Cemetery
Wish I could tell you where it came from but I can't recall. Most of my entries like his were taken from cemetery surveys but I tried to locate it and couldn't.

Benjamin Clyde ROWELL
Good catch. I'll email "A Footstep in Time" and ask him/her to remove Ben Jr's tombstone from his father's memorial (#25200935).

RE: Annie Jane Rowell Allen
Penny,
Annie's DOB is sometime between 1850-1854. Her AL Death Certificate has 1852, but we (my ROWELL family) have always thought she was born in 1854 as evidenced by her age on the 1880 and 1900 census records and her step-mom's Bible which has 1854. 1854 also puts her birth 10 months after her parents Caleb & Nancy DUNN married (30 Jun 1853, Wilcox Co AL). My guess is her tombstone, which is too new to have been placed in 1938, was placed years after her death. If you'll email me, I'll send you the documents I have. Glad to share. Caleb M. ROWELL was my Great-Great-Grandfather. Doug McBroom, Aurora CO

Penny, sorry, but no one in my ROWELL family has a picture of Tommy ROWELL (1871-1910). We're not even positive he is buried in Old Sparta Cemetery, but my late-GMa Hazel Etoy ROWELL PLUNKETT remembered her parents talking about him, so we assumed he was buried by his parents.

RE: Oops....Elizabeth Condell
You are quite welcome. Finding these type of stones before they are lost or totally illegible is certainly worth the time spent carefully looking. Thanks for your note....I appreciate it!
