Could someone please give me directions to the Zions Rest Cemetery? It is my understanding that is is located in the Wallace Community near the Zions Rest Methodist Church.

Pam, I know it has been awhile but did you every get to Zion's Rest Cemetery? My grandparents are buried there and most of the people in the cemetery are kin to one or the other. Did you still need the directions to the cemetery or did you get them? I have a new email address so you can write to it direct. Wilma Reece, Louisville, Ky

There is a predominately African-American burial site, Zion Rest Cemetery, 4300 Henry St., Shreveport, LA, which is across from a church of the same name. However, the church has nothing to do with the cemetery. My book on a reading of Zion Rest Cemetery's 1,731 descendants is being published in 2007. Found six Andersons: Jerome, Lila, Nora, Pauline, Sam, and Sam III. Is this the cemetery you seek? I will do lookups.

If you have this book, would you mind giving me the NEAL information? I am looking for the wife of William E. NEAL. I think her name is Mamie or Mary. Your help would be most appreciated.

hello
I would like to inquire if anyone knows this person listed in this cemetery transcript:
ISBELL, Dalia --------------------------1947. She is the only Isbell listed in this cemetery, even though at one time, One family lived in DeSoto Parish.
And would she be related to David McFerren's family
Thanks

When I was a child, visiting my grandmother, Ellen Ryan Cates, we always went by to visit Hardy and Lizzie Isbell down the road from Grandma's. After seeing your post, I looked in the Wallace cemetery listing for DeSoto Parish and found several Isbells, Isabells. The cemeteries are quite close to one another, both being in the Wallace Community. I do not know of a connection with McFerren.
Good luck!
