There is a J.W.McGinnis buried in the Columbia(LA) Hill Cemetery. Inscription reads as follows: McGinnis,J.W.: March 10 1837-May 11, 1907. In Tennessee, CSA Veteran
There are nine other McGinnis graves in the same cemetery.
In the book entitled "Caldwell Parish in Slices: Beginning a Brief History of Caldwell Parish, LA 1838-1971" by H. Ted Woods reference is made to J.W.McGinnis on page 27. Quoting from the book " There is no complete record of the various school superintendents(Caldwell Parish), but mention can be made of N.M. Davis, J.W. McGinnis, C.P. Thornhill and A.B. Hundley. They were employed at a salary from 200 to 300 dollars annnually, to keep the records of the School Board, and were not employed to supervise instruction."
