Bio and Links
I absolutely love this site! I enjoy exploring and finding the different cemeteries and sometimes it can be a real challenge! I live in west-central Louisiana near the oldest city in Louisiana (Natchitoches) and the Texas border. When I go grave hunting I always try to take the best photo I can because I know that is what I would want. I don't mind taking a little extra time cleaning up the area if necessary. Most of the cemeteries around me seem to be very well maintained. I give permission for all those that I take photos for to use my photos in other areas and if you would like the higher resolution photos, just email me and ask. I would be more than happy to send them to you!
My own genealogy lines are these names - Houghton, Wobig, Hovland, Zemke, Skindingsrud, Fuglien, Scheuneman which are based in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota. My husband's line consists of these names - Johnson, Hollis, Collins, Neal, Nugent, Stegall, Williams, Bennett, Baldridge, Cox, Evans, Buckelew or maybe Buckliew which seem to be based in Louisiana, Arkansas, Virginia and North Carolina. If you have information on any of these lines, please contact me at because I would love to talk with you!

Beasley Cemetery

Do you know if there is still access to the Beasley Cemetery. I know if you travel a few miles down the road to the cemetery, there are private property signs?

My husband George has family in this cemetery.

photo posting request
Hello Debby -
You posted a photo of the grave marker for Richard Heath Lee - Find A Grave Mem # 8850925. It is actually a picture of the double marker with his wife Agnes Lay Lee. I'm wondering if you could post that picture also on the wife's memorial - # 131019506

Elizabeth Ellis Sirmon Grave
I was just looking at the memorial for Elizabeth Ellis Sirmon, and I wanted to say what a wonderful job you did taking photos of her grave. I wish everyone would take such care and get such great photos!

This memorial is for John H. Williams located at the
Smyrna Baptist Church Cemetery
I visited the cemetery that had a sign that said that it was the Smyrna Baptist Cemetery. There was only about three graves there.
I am assuming there must be another.
Could you give me the directions to this graveyard.

I went to the cemetery office today. The cemetery plot is Block 204 lot 10 grave 8 if you would like to add that to her page. I will hopefully be able to get the picture this weekend.

Peggy Herridge Wilson
Etha Goodman Herridge
Find A Grave Memorial# 81754160

You added a photo to her memorial indicating just the foundation for the tombstone remained.

I added her husband to her memorial...he died over 30 years before her. Her grave was by his father.
But without the death certificate with location of burial, I did not know whether to list him in the same cemetery. But I think he is buried there as per this:

Found on the Converse Cemetery at USGen

15 16 Etha G. Herridge May 6 1919 unk 9999

15 17 Calvin M.Herridge Apr 12 1873 Jul 2 1958 b/w Bertha B.

15 18 Unknown Unknown unk 9999 unk 9999

15 19 Bertha Bell Herridge Apr 6 1892 Jun 6 1960 b/w Calvin M.

Note: Unknown between Calvin ahd his wife Bertha.

Any further info would be very much appreciated. Calvin Monroe Herridge is the son of my great grandfather's brother, Calvin Watson Herridge. They had a younger brother, James Monroe Herridge who died in the Civil War so expect that is where Calvin Monroe Herridge got his name.
