Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Shanna (yes, named after the book). I live in the southern U.S. with my three cats (Maggie, Abby, & Zoe) and adorable, Cajun fiance, Baret.

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.

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.

Thank you.

Corry L. Quine
Hi Shanna,

Could you please link Corry Quine (31130630) to his parents below:

Father ~ William Thaddeus Quine - 7199367

Mother ~ Mary Alice (Loudon) Quine - 7199368

We have managed to link 9 out of the 10 children of William & Mary Quine. If you could link Corry to them then all the siblings will be connected to their parents.

Thank you so much.

If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.
