Death and Burial in DeSoto Parish

Death and Burial in DeSoto Parish

Surnames: Hollingsworth, Sphears
America Hollingsworth was listed in the 1920 census as living in Ward 3, DeSoto Parish, with William and Cara (or Cora) Sphears. The census indicated that she was no relation to William, head of the house. However, she may have been related to Cora. I am trying to find out any infomation as to where she died and is buried. She was my ggrandmother. She previously lived in Bellevue, LA with L. B. Hollingsworth, her husband. He is buried in Bellevue Cemetery. Thank you for any information you may have.

Thank you so much. She very well may be my great grandmother. I have her birth as indicated on the census as an earlier year. But that could just be an error made by the person who gave the information.

How did you find that? Is there a way to search all the Louisiana cemeteries by name?

Thanks again.
