I have been working on a transcription for Greenwood Cemetery in Caddo Parish, Shreveport, LA. It is a long way from being finished but I add some names each week. I do have pictures for all the transcriptions listed even if they aren't all up there yet. I'm posting this so it might help some genealogists or family members doing research on their ancestors. Thanks to rootsweb I have the web space to start uploading the pictures I have. Here is the link:

If you have any questions or need more information please put Greenwood or cemetery in the subject line of an email so I don't accidentally delete it. Thanks, Sharon S.

You're welcome. I'm not sure what names you were looking for but I just uploaded pictures of the Oliver and Sproull headstones. I believe the Tate headstones I have were already up there. This cemetery is far from finished but I have been too busy to get over there recently. I do have pictures of most of the tombstones that are listed on my site so far. I will be glad to put up whatever ones I have if someone requests them or send a copy of the original digital picture if someone wants. I have to trim the sides and cut down the resolution to put them on the website. I try to keep them readable but sometimes in order to do that I can't get the whole tombstone in the picture.

Salina Oliver was my gg grandmother. G.W. Sproull and Florence Oliver Sproull were my great grandparents. I am not sure about the Robert Oliver but believe he might have been a sone to Salina. I still need to do research and find out if he was or not. I want to thank you for what you have done in posting who is buried and posting pics. You are wonderful to do it. For those of us that can't get there and see for ourselves, it is a big thing. Thank you again for all that you have done.

Hi Sharon! I just found your partial listing of the Greenwood Cemetery on US Gen Web. I am interested in helping out. I have a huge chunk of family buried at the cemetery, and have been interested in surveying it, but it is an awesome task to take on by yourself. I surveyed the cemetery in Sarepta that is Webster Parish. Please email me back, even if you are not interested in the help. I found my Uncle John Brown on your existing page! You can email me at home at kelley_lambofgod@yahoo.com or at work at kgrabe@lsuhsc.edu. Thanks!
