Gus Baham and Mary Lucillia Anthony Researchers

Gus Baham appears to be the half brother of Preston Andrew Baham as found in his obituary below.Most all of Preston's siblings were located in the ss index in the same location as Gus Baham husband of Mary Lucillia Anthony.In the obituary it stated his mother was Elizabeth Pierre and His father Phillip Baham.Making Gus's father Phillip and his mother Unknown.Searching for Elizabeth in the ss index,I located her in Jackson,East Feliciana Parish,Louisiana after finding her burial records in the same location as her son Preston,and stepson Elijah W. Baham,and his second wife Rosetta P...After locating her ss records,I checked for other Baham's in the same area as her.I came up with a Holiday Baham and a Emma Baham.I found buried next to her a Emma Amela Baham in whom I believe is the same as the woman in the ss index.Now as for Holiday Baham.I did a internet search for him and found nothing,until I visited Tangipahoa Parish cemeteries.Then in Bahm Cemetery,I found him listed as being buried there.The day and month of death differ from ss information but the date of birth are the same.I have to wonder if the folks buried in Bahm cemetery are the lost family of Gus Baham...Does anyone have any ideas???
