Hello Susan,
I don't have a Johnny Carlisle from Bogolusa, LA in my records. Do you know who are his ancestors in MS and where in MS they may have been located? Too little info to know if we are related.

My Carlisle ancestors, Thomas Carlisle, with sons John B. and James Carlisle and their families, came from NC/GA to Lawrence Co., MS before 1820 and settled there. Thomas and son James died in Lawrence Co. in the 1840's. John B. died there in the 1860's. Some of their descendants scattered to other counties in MS, some went to LA, some to AR, some to TX.

I have posted to this message board info on my direct ancestor, John A. Carlisle, (son of John B. Carlisle) and his family in Grant Parish.
John A. left Lawrence Co., MS for LA in the 1840's with brothers, Thomas M., William and James M. Carlisle. Thomas M. and his family settled in Bienville Parish, LA. William and family, James M. and wife, and John A. settled for a while in Claiborne Parish, LA. James M. and wife, Huldah Prestridge, died there (or maybe in Union Co., AR) in about 1859. In the early 1860's, William, wife Sarah, and family moved to Angelina Co., TX; John A., wife Narcissa, and family moved to Rapides Parish, LA, where they are recorded in 1870, then they moved into Grant Parish, LA.

This may not tie in with your Carlisle ancestors at all. Let me know if anything here "rings a bell" and we'll try to investigate further whether or not we might be related.

Best wishes in your search,
