Thank you for getting back to me. I have new info:Directions for Dial Cementary:Located in west Rapides parish.La hwy 28, turn left at Gardner onto La. hwy 121 past town of Hineston, Make left on La. hwy 112(Union hill rd.) go 4 miles to new hope baptist church. Behind church turn onto Padgett Rd.(Black top &gravel). about 4 miles of gravel road and cementary is located on left across from Donald Pace's home. It's about one acre and fenced in. very neglected with grass 6 ft. tall. On the gate "Doyle Cementary-Old Soldiers".
I called and spoke with my mother and she gave me some info on the Thompson's. Most of them buried out at Occupy 1 cementary in Rapides parish on tenmile creek. I found the following info: Wade Thompson-5/20/1858-1/21/1932 married Eliza Doyle(Pochahontas's sister) 1/14/1880-1/16/1965. Edmon Thompson-6/20/1824-5/20/1908 married Martha Thompson 10/29/1835-12/12/1900. I believe the two men listed below may have been Martha/Edmon's children: Alexander Thompson-7/22/1826-11/29/1901 and James Fenwick Thompson-1/19/1848-4/14/1883. I came across a Barney Thompson-7/22/1866-11/6/1925 married to Virgini-3/30/1871-4/6/1939. Pochahontas is buried at Occupy 1-5/2/1875-12/23/1964. Did you receive the info that someone emailed to me about Edmun Thompson?There's also Reeves Thompson-10/14/1918-7/22/1983 and Uncle Julius-1900/1989, I beleive both of them to be brothers to Ernest Thompson. In regards to the Indian connection, It is said to be through Ernest Thompson's mother Eliza Doyle(Dial) who married Wade Thompson. I remember Ernest telling me that she was Indian , but it was not spoken of back then and of course they were all given english names to try to cover up the indian heritage. He would joke that Occupy 1 church, looked like an Indian reservation on Sunday mornings. I look forward to receiving your package. I found the info on the Wisby's. The churches have so much info. If anything else, let me know! Perhaps we can find out more info on William Thompson,etc.
