My sister married Edd Pierce. He was born in Bogalusa, La. His brother also lived in Richland Parish. You mentioned Hardy. I think Edd's brother was named Hardy. He had a Cafe in Rayville, La. in the late 40's & early 50's. That is all that I know about this family. I was not interested in genealogy way back then. Seems to be the same sad story a lot of us tell. Edd was b. Sept. 2, 1908 d. Feb. 2,1986 in Monroe, La.
