I'm researching Capt. Watt McGuire. I'm not sure what my relation to him is. I have a newspaper article given to my grandfathers brother in 1961. Don't know what paper, but byline is Tom Herline, Leader Editor. McGuire built a house (with Barney McCloud) in Simsboro, LA on a 600-acre plantation (Lincoln Parish Road 303). The land certificates are dated 1837 show the owner to be Jabez Sanders. McGuire was a veterinarian and he died in 1896. Earl McGuire, Watt's grandson, was living in the house at the time of the article. I'm planning on traveling to Simsboro to see the house and what information I can find. My fathers family is from New Mexico, but I believe they came from Louisiana. Any information you may have would be appreciated.
