Subject: Re: Geno & J. W. Smith, Architech
I would like more info about is J. W. SMITH, He attained an architech degree from Louisana Tech & lived at Monroe for many years. I believe he is buried there in the city. J. W. SMITH was born about 1865 in GA, probably Henry County. He married in Lincoln Par. January 21, 1886 to Sallie M. Givens. They had 4 children Twin girls & 2 boys The boys names were J.W.Smith,JR and Percy Smith. At least one of the boys, I believe J.W. Smith,JR, was in the building business with his father. The father didnot die until after WWII. Just last month I saw an article in the Union Par. LA Visitor's Guide stating that the Bernice Civic Club on LA Hwy. 2 was design & built by J.W. Smith & Associates, Monroe Architechs in 1939. Could you help my mom & I find out where his business was located? Or where he is buried? We have been told that he designed some of the old buldings in your downtown area. I plan to visit there in the fall & would like to attain more information about this relative, J.W. SMITH and his descendants.

Subject: Looking for info on Mason H Sims
I am looking for info on my 2nd GGF, Mason H Sims. He was last found in the 1870 census (Ward 6, Ouachita), with wife Kizziah Grisham, children James W, Jeremiah, and Sarah.
The 1880 census shows Kizziah married to Joel L Butler, and James W Sims as stepson. No sign of Mason and the other children. Also Kizziah and James Sims are buried in Butler Cemetery, but not Joel L Butler.

Subject: Mason family
I'm looking for any information on James H. Mason (wish I knew what the H. was). He was born in 1846 probably in Morehouse or Union parish, Louisiana. He had one known sister, Margaret Ann Mason, born 1842. She married Thomas Charles Lewis, a lawyer and newspaper owner. Margaret and Charles moved to Church Point, La. where they died. My focus is on James and Margaret's parents who I assume were dead by 1850 since they were living with Mary Malinda Wilds McDowell and her husband by this time. Any information would be much appreciated. Please contact me at jsak006@bellsouth.net anytime. Thanks.

Subject: Holmes, Adams, Mygatt, Collins, Parrish
Am looking for any information:

Ibera Sophia Holmes was my ggrandmother's sister. In 1860, Ibera, age 18,was in the household of J. B. Chapman of Port Jefferson, Morehouse Parish, LA. Some time in the 1860s she married an Adams,and apparently her husband died leaving her with 3 children, Charles W. Adams, Fanny Adams, Izola Adams. On Sept. 8, 1870 Ibera Adams married J. W. Mygatt. The 1880 census shows her as Ms. I. S. Collins, a widow, with Chas. W. Adams, son, age 15, Fanny Adams, dau, age ,13, and Izola Adams, dau. age 11, and Lizzie Mygatt, dau. age 9. All this was in Morehouse Parish.

In the 1900 census of Ouachita Paris, LA is shown the household of M. O. Parish, head, m, age 34, with wife, Lizzie, age 28, with Charlie, son, age 2, and Mrs. I. S. Collins, mother-in-law.

In 1910 census Ogden Parish is in the household with (I assume a brother and family). And Ogden and son Charlie and daughter Gertie are shown, and Ogden is shown as a widow. So Lizzie Mygatt Parish apparently died during the 10 years prior. Mrs. I. S. Collins either died or went to live with another child.

The only part of this that I knew before yesterday 6-15-05, was that Ibera Holmes lived in the home of J. B. Chapman in Morehouse Parish in 1860 and that she was the widow Adams whenever her father's estate was finally settled. All this other I found yesterday on the internet.

Any information will be appreciated. My primary e-mail address is

Subject: Richard Wiley Melton of Ouachita Parish, LA
Searching for any descendants of Richard Wiley Melton (b 4 Sept 1833, Marion Co GA) who came from Marion CO GA to Ouachita Parish LA with wife Jane B. Clements (married 24 Aug 1856, Marion Co GA) and children sometime between 1870 and 1873. Richard Wiley was the son of Matthew Melton (I descend from Matthew's daughter Martha "Mattie" who married James E. Short and stayed in Marion Co GA). He was the grandson of McKinney Melton. I suspect that several of their children are buried in Ouachita Co LA as the 1900 census shows that there were only 5 of Jane's 12 children were living at that time. Children: Wiley (b ca 1858, I believe he was in Winn Parish, LA in 1910); Ida (b ca 1860, GA, living 1880); Ella or Emma (b ca 1862, GA, living 1880); Anna (b ca 1864 GA, living 1880); Della/Dillah (b ca 1866 GA, living 1880); McKinney M. "Mack"(b ca Apr 1869, living in 1900); Alberta (b ca 1870, GA, desc by 1880); Jacob (b ca 1873, LA; living 1880); Orean L (b ca 1877, LA, living 1880). Richard died 10 Dec 1882 in Ouachita Parish LA. Family history suggests that Richard Wiley Melton shot and killed a Jones man. There is a story in the Marion County newspaper about a murder of a Jones about that same time.

Seeking further information on Carroll family which lived in Ouachita Parish in early to mid-1800s. Thomas Carroll
and brothers John and William were born in 1790s in Natchez, MS, to John Carroll (d. 1803) and Mary Scoggins,
and were found in 1830 Ouachita Parish census. (John Carroll may possibly be one of five orphaned sons of
Absalom Carroll of Colleton District, S.C., although I have not found a direct link.)
Thomas (d. abt 1844) was most likely married to Esther (also found as Sarah). She was a widow in 1850 Ouachita
Parish Ward 9 census with sons John and William and daughter Melinda living at home with her.
William married Catherine Beeson and Melinda married Griffin Long.
John Carroll (1835-1863), his wife Frances, and their children James, Albert, Emily and Oscar are found in 1860
Ouachita Ward 9 census. John joined Co. K. 31st La. Infantry and died at Vicksburg.
Frances was remarried to J.F. Thomas. John and Frances' daughter Emily married Joel Richard
Hendrix in West Monroe in 1876 and apparently died a few years later.
John and Frances' sons James and Albert appear in 1880 Union Parish census. Both brothers were killed in 1893. No

(He very well could have ran away after Slavery we just don’t know)

I am researching a very difficult situation as if African American genealogy isn’t difficult already. I’m looking for relatives and/or verifiable information of a Phillip Eugene (Phil) Wilson.
We were told long ago that “Phil”, my grandfather ran away from Monroe, Louisiana along with two brother’s and or friends, we are not sure as years have clouded our recollections’ however we located “Phil” as a young man living in 1870 in Hudsonville (Marshall County) Mississippi, subsequently census records for 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, found him living in Tate County Mississippi near the Village of Senatobia.
In 1930, he was living with a daughter in Herando (Desoto) Mississippi, where he apparently dies circa 1934.
We cannot verify anything about Louisiana’s (Ouachita Parish) or the Village of Monroe existence. We have placed his birth c1849 – 1854. During the Slavery Period, on all his census he indicates that his parents were born in Louisiana as was he himself. Any help would be greatly appreciated and as a gift from God, we are at wits end.
