I am researching my McGuire ancestors in Lincoln Parish and Bienville Parish, Louisiana. My great grandfather, Isaac Edgar Mcguire is buried in Oak Grove cemetery, located on LA 147 south of Arcadia, Louisiana. Many of his relatives are buried in the Givens cemetery located very near Oak Grove. I have a complete listing of the tombstone information.
In the Givens cemetery is buried Capt. I. W. McGuire b. April 24, 1834, d. March 29, 1896. I am trying to determine if he is my great great grandfather or a great great uncle. He was apparently in the 12th LA Infantry CSA, Co. B., Arcadia Invincibles, Bienville Parish during the Civil War.
The old home in which my great grandfather was born is still standing and located just south of Simsboro, Louisiana. I am unsure of the highway number.
It seems that we have some common ancestors. I will be happy to provide any information that I have and would appreciate any you have in return.
