My Grandmother was Lillie Elizabeth LaPrairie, married to 1st Flynn Edward Ebey, Sr., then Fred Herman"Uncle Bill" Ebey, all of the Effie area. I live in West Monroe now. My father is buried in the Oak Grove Cemetary in Effie. Flinn Edward Ebey, Jr.
After doing some research I believe Mike LaPrairie is related to the late Buddy Ebey. Wilbert Ebey, Buddy's brother, lives here in Monroe.
