Robert i understand that the william's family owned and lived
on the Island for year's. Then it was leased to the oil company. Is this correct? The bateman's have not owned or lived on the Island for year's.It is my understanding that a lot of family's were born and raised there. A lot of slave family's lived on the Island before the civil war. A lot of grave's were on Bateman's Island. I cannot locate the burial site and/or site's of any of them. What happened to them? I have a paper clipping of the death of one Elihu E. Robinson D:1944 morgan,city. buried Bayou Bouf Bateman's Island. Do you have any idea?
