I am trying to find the location of a "T" or "Tee" Long / Loney Plantation in Tensas Parish in 1929. I think it was Waterproof or near by. Was there and Long Plantations in this area..maybe a Thomas Long? I would sincerely appreciate any information you may have.

Thank you for letting me know about Lomeland. Do you know who was the owner or any other information about it. I was suppose to have been borne on the plantation I requested info on in 1929. I do recall parents talking about a Lomeland. Anything you can give me on this will greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
Marguerite

These two plantations mentioned in these posts are Tullonia Plantation and Loamland Plantation. Both are located in south western Tensas Parish on highway 571, west of Waterproof and north of Clayton. There is nothing left of Tullonia Plantation but the Loamland Plantation house is still standing, although barely...I live just a few miles from either location. The Loamland house was one of the first houses in Tensas Parish that had electricity in the rural areas, this house had it's own carbide powerplant for electricity.

My grandparents, Jim Lee Morgan and his wife, Mary Jane "Mollie" Leonard and their children, share-cropped on Loamland Plantation from about 1926 to 1934, when they both died. They lived in some "cropper" houses or shacks just north of the overseers house in a grove of trees as told by my Dad (one of 11 children). These share-cropper houses are no longer there. He used to play with the other kids under the porch of the "big house", or overseers house. This old house dated from before the Civil War and was built with two separate square brick rooms on the ground floor which also served to support the main floor of the house which was a story above ground level. A large porch, supported by brick columns, ran the full length of the front, or east side of the house, with wide steps leading down to the ground. A chimney stood on the south end of the old house and allowed for fireplaces in the brick room on the ground floor and also in the large room on the south end of the second or main floor. The porch was high enough off the ground that a wagon could be driven under it and supplies unloaded for storage in the two large brick rooms. Due to inadequate care, the house began showing its age in the 1970’s with sections starting to collapse in 2004. I have pictures of the old house from the 1980's and about 2006 if anyone wants them.
According to one of my uncles, the plantation was owned by Mrs. Mary Eure who lived in Mississippi and was managed by her brother-in-law, John Quinn.
