Nairn Cemetery

Nairn Cemetery

Surnames: Serpas, Bowers
I'm researching the siblings of my maternal great grandmother, Bertha Serpas Werner. One of her brothers, William Serpas, of Empire, LA (per his obituary) died 23 DEC 1976 and is interred at Marr Mairn Cemetery(per obit), I think it's the Nairn Cemetery.

His parents were Louise Melerine and John Serpas. His wife was Ella Bowers. He had one son, William, Jr.

Am I headed in the right direction? Or, am I way off. Any information on the Serpas and Bowers families would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Lynn

Lynn,

You are certainly in the right direction. Search Rootsweb for Serpas. Search for Francisco Serpas.

I have Serpas, Werner, and bowers, but no Ella. Serpas, Bowers and Werners were from the lower end of Plaquemines Parish and New Orleans.

Thank you, Cliff.

May ask which Serpas' and Werners do you have?

Most of my information is from the census and obituaries. And of course, what little I truly know.

My George Werner(born about 1890) was married to Bertha Serpas(born about 1891) about 1908. From what I can find(or better yet, can't find), both died before 1920. Together they had my maternal grandfather, George Werner, and his siblings; Lester, Louise and William.

Sadly, my mother and her only sibling passed away in the 90's so I cannot ask them. I'm now trying to locate and contact the decendents of my grandfather's siblings to see if they have any information. Also, I'm waiting for my grandfather's birth and death certificates.

Again, thank you,
Lynn
