Greg Wilson Sat Aug 2 04:45:37 1997 ---- BROWN
I am looking for information on Captain John W. Brown (1839-1864) of Natchitoches Parish. He was Captain of Co. A "Lecompte Guards", 2nd Louisiana Infantry until being wounded at Chancellorsville, Va. on May 3, 1863. Captain Brown was killed in action at Stowe's Ferry in Tallapoosa County, Alabama on July 17, 1864 while serving as a enlisting officer for the C.S. Army. This was during Rousseau's Raid. The Captain's parents were John W. & Mary H. Brown of Natchitoches Parish. Apparently the Captain was a school teacher before the war. Would like to hear from descendents and other persons with information that might assist in marking his last resting place. Greg Wilson 1921 Rosewood Street

Sally Fenly Mon Aug 4 12:09:27 1997 ---- ELLIOTT
James Elliott was on 1840 Natchitoches Par. There was one other male (age 20-30) in this household, who may be my ancestor, James F. Elliott. James F. was at the battle of San Jacinto in 1836, and served 2 yrs in the Army of the Republic of TX. He was back in Natchitoches LA where he rec'd a land grant in DeSoto Par - 1849. He m Elizabeth McMillan of Panola Co/TX. They were on DeSoto census in 1850; then moved to Panola Co/TX. Does anyone have any info re when James Elliott came to LA and from where? James F said he was born in SC in 1815-20 (depending on which census is read). There is also some indication that he lived in AL. Is there any cemetery record for James? What were the provisions of the "Act of Congress of the 24th April, 1820," as it affected the Natichitoches land grants? I wonder why James F rec'd his 40+ acres. Any info will be appreciated. I have scads of info on James F.'s descendants and will share.

Susan Holley Fri Oct 31 20:11:20 1997
Research in Natchitoches Parish question???? Can anyone tell me an explanation of how children in Spanish Catholic families were named? I assume as in French Catholic families, the first name was usually that of a Saint, then the given name, then the surnames of the father? But what was the method used in the early families of Spanish heritage? I have a question about a family in the early days of Natchitoches Parish. In early records an individual is named Joseph Desidere Pareillo when he marries yet in later records he has become simply Joseph Desidere. I found the same thing in another relative in this family--there was an individual named Philozam Desidere Pareillo, Philozam Pareillo, and finally his succession was filed by the name of Philozam Desidere. In one family document there is an individual listed as a witness who signed him name as Desidere Pareillo. These families lived in Natchitoches Parish in the mid to late 1800s. Can someone explain this evolution of these surnames in Natchitoches Parish history? Thank You, Susan

Elaine Barber Thu Nov 13 20:47:28 1997 ---- GASTON
I am trying to find information on the GASTON family. I have recently discovered on my grandmother Elsie GASTON Rodrigues' death certificate her father's name was listed as W.P. Gaston and that he was from GA. On my last trip to LA in Oct. I found a Walter P. Gaston married a Maymie Solice in 1905. My grandfather George Rodrigues was listed as security on the marriage bond. I would think that if he is my grandmother's father that this would be his second marriage as my grandmother was born in 1870 in MS. I also found that W.P. was given some property by a Jennie Solice who was the mother of Maymie Solice. Fisher Solice was the father of Maymie. I would appreciate any information anyone might have. Thanks. Elaine

Carol Snoddy Byler Fri Dec 26 17:20:19 1997 ---- SNODDY
Searching for information on Andrew Snoddy and his descendants. Andrew Snoddy, born circa 1755, was still a minor when his elder brother, John Snoddy, made his will in February 1775. There are records of payments to him for services in the North Carolina military forces during the Revolutionary War. In April 1781, he became the Adjutant of the First Regiment of South Carolina State Troops under the command of Lt. Colonel Wade Hampton. Andrew Snoddy survived the war and returned to North Carolina, where in January 1786 he signed a security bond in Rowan County for the marriage of his half-sister, Elizabeth Neill. Then he shifted west, stopping first in the Nashborough settlements (he is listed in numerous Davidson County court proceedings), then continuing into Louisiana where in the 1810 Federal Census counted him in Rapides Parish on the Red River. In 1819, his half-brother, James "Nail" (Neil) swore in Butler County, Kentucky, court that "Andrew Snoddy died near Natchitoches Pecan Point." Pecan Point was one of the principal early settlement on the Red River in the Arkansas Territory north of Louisiana.
