You might lookup the book Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northrup (Amazon.com has the book). This is an excellent and informative book written by Solomon Northup who was a free man who was captured and sold into slavery in 1841 where he remained for twelve years. He lived on several plantations in that area. I am from Central Louisiana and studied this subject in college at Louisiana State University in Alexandria, LA (a couple of decades ago). Sue Eakin was a professor at LSUA at that time and did extensive study and writing on this subject. There is a Solomon Northrup trail in the area that follows Solomon's life during that time period. You might contact the library at LSUA as they might be able to answer your questions or point you in the right direction.

Thank for the info on the plantation and Annie Crittle is next to Seleania Crittle Johnson - 10 Jun 1910/26 Sep 1968. I know who Seleania is but she had a mother sister and aunt name Annie Crittle but I read some where that Seleania sisters married name was Eden (Ann Eden 1907-1986) but the date of birth don't match?

Johnson, Seleania - 10 Jun 1910/26 Sep 1968

Crittle?, Annie - [handlettered, no information]

Williams, Leroy - 1886/1946

Eden, Ann - ?1907/1986? [funeral marker]

I'm looking for some information about my family from this area with the last name of Johnson.
My grandfather's fathers name was Stephen Johnson and I know that his families were slaves in this area any chance there is a connection?
My great grandfather – Stephen Johnson B 1877 (in or around Rapides LA)
His Mother was Betsy Martin (I’m not sure if this was his birth mother) Born about 1853 in this area of LA.
I’m looking for anyone or anything that can help me find my family.
