I have a copy if anyone would like me to look up a name I would be glad to, but I would encourage everyone interested in this part of the State to purchase a copy, it is a very well put together book by the LaSalle Parish Genealogical Association.

Hello. I am searching for information on Elias Carter Sr., married to Lucy Duke Stone in early 1800's. Also I am searching for information on Capt. Ephram Goodwin Carter (E.G. Carter) and Capt. Henry Mayo Carter (H.M. Carter) and possibley Capt. Walter M. Carter. Last three men were steamboat captains in Catahoula Parish. They are my ancestors. Maybe it's a long shot but could they possibly be mentioned in your history book?

Thank you,
Karen Spencer

There is mention of Elias Carter family being members of the Nolley Memorial Unitied Methodist Church from 1809-1812, but buy the turn of the Century they must have moved because they are not members then. And non of the other names are in the book. Many Carters and Stone but not the ones you mentioned.

Surnames: Valentine, Volentine, Olds, Hailey
Brenda, I ask your favor in looking up the names of my 3G-grandparents, Reuben J. Valentine and Mary Ann Olds. I believe that they lived in the Belah area (where there is a Valentine Road nearby) during the 1800's, and Mary Ann is buried in Belah Cemetery along with her son William J. Valentine and daughter Epsy Valentine Hailey (married to Josephus Hailey).

The names Valentine and Volentine were used interchangeable, so you might find them listed either way.

BTW, do you know the current price of this book and the ordering details?

Thanks for your help,

Yes, the name Valentine/Volentine appears many times. The family of John Valentine b. abt. 1800 in S.C.is mentioned. His children are listed as Elisha K.(Doc), Reuben, Carline, William Henry, John, Mary, Julies, Catherine and Davis all b.in LA. and Miss. between 1827 and 1846. Doc d. 2-24-22 and is buried in Chalk Hill Cemetery. There are 18 times that the names come up in the book. I purchased the book two years ago now, I believe from Amazon.com and it was about 30.00. I would be a good investment if you have family in that area, unless you have a family history library close by that might have it. I can make you copies, but it will take some time, I am dealing with an sick mother and do work full time. I will charge you for the copies a Kinkos and postage.

Brenda, many thanks for your quick reply, confirming that my Valentine ancestors are included in this book. Let me try to purchase a copy first--if I can't do that, I'll ask your favor to make copies of the pages with their references.

Surnames: Stapleton, Parker, Olds, Valentine, Volentine
Brenda -

Could you look to see if the names of John Wesley Stapleton & his wife, Nancy Jane Parker, appear in your book?

John Reid, who you spoke with 27-28 Oct 04, just informed me, to my delight, that Nancy Jane Parker was the half sister of Mary Ann Olds who m Reuben J Valentine/Volentine. Their mother, Ann, married 3X and they are the children of her 1st & 2nd husbands.

John tells me that John Wesley & Nancy are buried in the Belah Cemetery in Belah, LaSalle Parish Section A, plots 0-14 and 0-15. Mary Ann Olds Valentine is buried right next to them in plot 0-13.

Thanks in advance for your help. It's kind of you to offer to help others.

Thanks Brenda. That is the Elias Carter I've been researching. Matthew Stone is also mentioned. He was Elias Carter's father-in-law. Elias married his daughter, Lucy Duke Stone. Seems to have been an early founder in Catahoula Parish but can't seem to find out where they are buried. If you have any more information please send my way at anglys0203@aol.com. We have traced Lucy's family back to England and France 1600's. Her uncle, Thomas Carter signed the Decleration of Independance.
