Looking for any information about Elijah MCFARLAND b.1819 in Mississippi d. 1896 in Calcasieu Parish (Now Allen Parish). His wife was Charlottie E. b.1838 d.1904. She was possibly Choctow or Cherokee indian. Also Thomas Pinkney MCFARLAND b.1854 married Mary Jane HINSON b. 1863. Anyone else looking for this family?

There are also several other McFARLANDs listed as being buried in this cemetery:

I would be glad to provide additional info on these, if you need.

There are several HINSON women buried in this cemetery, most of whom are listed under their married names, indluding:

Effie HINSON (I'm not certain is this is a maiden or married name); and

Fathia (HINSON) CHANEY, my great-great-grandmother, who married William M. CHANEY.

The Blackjack Cemetery info should be available on the Allen Parish Database soon.

I, too, have Hinson roots in Allen County. I am searching for Miriam Hinson, who married a Grantham (Charles William). I can't seem to find anything on her. Has anyone else run across her in their research?

My GF was Thomas Edward McFarland, b.1882 d.1959. His birth town is listed as Choctaw, OK; however for the majority of his married adult life he lived in Shreveport, LA. His parents are listed as Thomas P. & Mary H. McFarland. So far, we haven't been able to "crack the code" on the "P" & the "H." Could this be your Thomas & Mary??

2 infants (no parent names given) answer. I was told by my parents that the infants were twin daughters born to my great grandparents, Jeptha & Inez McFarland. There surviving children were Earl Cloveve McFarland, Thurber Buford McFarland and Minnette McFarland (all of which are deceased now). My father was Thurber McFarland and my mother is 92 years old and is still living (June Smith McFarland). I remember going to the cemetery as a child to attend my great aunt, Minnie's funeral (1st wife of R.E. McFarland - Mildred was his 2nd wife). I can barely remember my great uncle,Osie Otis McFarland or my daddy's cousin's wife, Hazel Maxine McFarland. I did meet with my cousin, Felix, Hazel's son, a couple of years ago and genuinely enjoyed speaking with him as he was a wealth of family information. I don't know much about my father's family history but, I would love to know more.
