Does anyone know if there is any where online that would list the owners of the sugar plantations in Assumption Parish? Or any place with the histories of the various plantations? I know the Munson family was associated with Glenwood Plantation. I would like to know more about the plantations in the south --- my knowledge of them is very little as I was born & still live in MI.Thanks for any help.

I don't know of any sources online for the sugar plantations of Assumption Parish but I have the names of many, as well as a copy of a book that gives detailed information on about 50-75 plantaions along Bayou Lafourche in Assumption Parish. My family owns 3 sugar plantations and I have researched them. One is Enola owned by the Munson family( brother of the owner of Glenwood).I have some Munson genealogy. I have photos (or photos of paintings) of several of the old homes, now gone, including Enola, Wildwood, Little Texas, Ratcliff.

my husbands father Harry Troxler, said that he remembers being born and raised on a plantation, he called it Greenwood and the family lost it in the 1930's ?? thats all he knows, evidentally they never spoke about it.

any info would be greatly appreciated.

I have a photo of Little Texas I can mail you and some information on the Barton family who owned the plantaton as well as built the home about 1890's. The house was torn down or burned down in th 1960's. There are Barton descendents who grew up in the house around the 1930's who are still alive. I have Phillis Barton Block's email if you are interested in contacting her. My ggrandfather was overseer there in the 1890's.

Renee,
Do you have any information on Woodlawn Plantation. I know it burned down but do you know it's history and when it burned down? A gentleman by the name of Van Vives who is a descendant of Don Juan Vives emailed me asking about this. He said his father and uncle were raised by Alonzo and Elodie Tete Munson after Elodies's sister died. He said they lived on Woodlawn Plantation. Can you shed any light on this plantation?
Thanks Ruth
