CAJUNS, CREOLES, PIRATES AND PLANTERS

Your New Louisiana Ancestors Format

Volume 2, Number 37

 

By Damon Veach

 

DESOTO PUBLICATIONS: Morris Raphael of New Iberia has contributed a copy of the 1925 publication on the Battle of Mansfield for inclusion in my records on DeSoto Parish.  It was published on the 61st anniversary of the battle and on the occasion of the unveiling of the monuments to General Richard Taylor and General Polignac.  It will be added to the Veach-Foshee Memorial Library Collection that is housed in the Mansfield Female College Museum in Mansfield, Louisiana.  All donations are being made directly to the DeSoto Parish Historical Society.

 

The final meeting of the society was held on Sunday, November 21, 2010 at 2 p.m. at the Hicks-Richardson Building, Grand Cane, Louisiana, and the latest issue of the DeSoto Plume has a lot of information on the early history of Grand Cane.

 

 

Of particular interest is the article on the establishment of the Stonewall Station by the Texas & Pacific Railway Company on July 6, 1881 and written by George M. Gilmer Jr., treasurer for the society.  Also in this illustrated publication is an article on the Keatchie Presbyterian Church (by Gay Means), history of the town of Keatchie (by Gay Means), a look at Rick’s Wells, a historic health resort of Mansfield (by Liz Chrysler), and history of Mansfield College (by Gay Means and Liz Chrysler). 

 

Membership dues in this society are only $10 per year ($18 foreign), and in this day and time, this is certainly a bargain.  This excellent publication is included and is a loving tribute to the wonderful history found in this part of the state of Louisiana.  All membership checks should be sent to DeSoto Historical Society, George M. Gilmer Jr., P.O. Box 300, Stonewall, LA 71078.

MISSISSIPPI RECORDS: Tony Dardeau, editor of Mississippi River Routes (from the Vicksburg Genealogical Society), has just notified everyone that the winter 2010 issue (Volume 18, Number 2) is being indexed and will go to the printer as soon as that task is complete.  He expects a mid-December distribution of this quarterly, and, in the meantime, article titles from this excellent publication can be viewed online at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~msvgs/Routes.htm.  The back issues page is also updated:  http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~msvgs/backissu.htm.

 

You can check out the group at any time at the Vicksburg Genealogical Society website: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~msvgs/index.htm.
