I am looking for my family: Joseph Robert Mayes Born 1857 in Union Parrish, LA. His father was: Rev. Isaac Curtis Mayes Born 10 July 1807 Oglethrope, GA. Isaac bought land in Quachita, LA (40+ acreas) on 01 September 1849. Joseph married Laura Ann Laramore, Born: 1859 in Johnson Co Texas, had one child, Hettie Mayes in that Johnson County of Texas, then came back to LA where his other two girls, Bobbie & Holland Mayes were born in 1884 and 1885 respectfully. Then, I do not know what happened to the couple as all there girls had to live in Johnson County, Texas with three different Laramore family until they married.I am looking for any records in Union Parrish of any of the family. My take is that the parents died..but how did they die and was it LA or Texas?? Can anyone help in this mystery?? Are there any records of "Mayes" in the Shiloh Cemetery?Are there any Census Records of Mayes in this time period? By the way, Joseph's dad, the Reverand Isaac Curtis Mayes did go to Johnson County, Texas where he died but I can't find his grave there.Can anyone help?
