>Hello Mr. Byrd,

This is the third time to try this e-mail so I hope it works. The university of Indiana says that the address you sent me was incorrect and this might be the right address.

>I am including all the information that I have. It follows my signature.
>I send it "shotgun" fashion. I send it all and you sort it out.

>Bossier Parish Succession/Probate/Tutorships are available from the Clerk

>Bossier Parish Clerk of Court

>The plantations mentioned in the Bossier Parish Conveyance books as being

>My advice to you is to order the Bossier Conveyances books from
>JW-Enterprises. (On the internet.) They contain a lot of mentions of
>Cullen, Mark, and Dempsey McMullen and talks about two of Cullen's
>daughters who are married to other men in Bossier Parish. You may already
>know all of this, but if you don't, I suggest buying these books. Sorry,
>but I do not have permission to share the information in these books and
>the author Bill O'Daniel is a good friend of mine and I wouldn't insult
>him by giving his book information away. I will say you only need the
>books # 1, 2, 3, & 4 (You do not need books 5, 6, or 7) It is apparent
>that Cullen McMullin came to Bossier Parish in December of 1845
>(documented) and lived here until his death some time between 1852-1854.
