So am I but I haven't had any luck finding parents for Gabriel or his wife Sarah McWilliams Burns Beasley. We are descendents of James Washington Beasley and Eliza Helen Trousdale through their daughter Flora Beasley Murphy who married James Cross Murphy.

I do not know if this will be helpful to anyone but I found the tomb for James W. Beasley and his family in the Christ Episcopal Church Cemetary in Napoleonville, Louisiana. Unfortunately only the names of the people interred there were listed; no dates. They are James, his wife Eliza Trousdale Beasley, William H. Beasley, Louisa Beasley Perkins, R. Ruffin Beasley, Alice Beasley O'Sullivan, J. Ralph Beasley and Ida Beasley Foley.

Hi

Look to North Carolina for Gabriel Beasley. You and I are cousins if you are a Trousdale and Gabriel Beasley descendant. Gabriel was born N.C. 1/12/1785. Moved to Louisiana and married a widow (Sarah (nee McWilliams b. Ireland abt 1780)Burns. Sarah was first married to John Burns, b. Ireland. They ended up in South Louisiana and later moved to Morehouse Pparish in N. Louisiana. John died abt 1811 and Sarah married Gabriel about 1811 and moved back to Assumption parish near Napoleonville. I'm a descendant of Sarah and John's daughter Sarah Burns.John and Sarah Burns had 3 children, Maria, Sarah and Willoughby) Gabriel and Sarah raised the children at Wildwood Plantation near Napoleonville. I have seen information regarding the Trousdales (they are from NC and TN) and their close association with my g. grandmother Sarah Zenor (a cousin ). They often wen to "the city NOLA" for fun and entertainment in the late 1800s. My line goes like this: (1)Sarah and John Burns// (2)Sarah Burns and David Lee Robbins Jr.// (3)Lucretia Robbins and George Zenor// (4) Sarah Zenor and William Marshall Magill//(5) Lucretia Magill and George Davison// (6) Zenora Davison and Owen Duffy// (7)Alison Magill Duffy. Hope this reaches you
