Surnames: McCloy/Hanson/Henson/Stacker

My grandmother, great grandmother and great grandfather are buried on the island as well as numberous others. My family is buried in the Old Methodist Cemetery that was located next to the Methodist Church that no longer stands. My grandmother died of the great flu in 1918 and her name is Annie Belle Hanson (later changed to Henson according to the census). My father was born on Bayou Chene on a houseboat 9/5/1917 and Belle died shortly after he was born. Fanny "Annie" Gillen Stacker Hanson Poston is also buried there and she died in 1935 as is her 1st husband, William Samuel "Sam" Hanson (Henson) who died in 1928. There are still relatives living in Plaquemine and surrounding areas and I believe the Methodist church around Bayou Sorrell or Plaquemine might contain records of that cemetery on Bayou Chene. Those are the only relatives I know for sure are buried out there but there are probably more. Please keep me informed of your research. It took me over 30 years to locate my grandmother and her parents. My grandfather, Fredrick James McCloy Sr. "Fred" lived out there until his death in 1951 but he is buried in Lake Charles since the island was closed by then. He still had his houseboat docked at Bayou Chene until his death. On his marriage certificate, he wrote his name as "McLoy" which is a misspelling since his name was actually "McCloy" and he was born around East Baton Rouge or Morgan City. Records are difficult to come by but I still search almost every day.
