Looking for info on the above.

Grandfather is "Sam Bass Broadway". Possibly related to "Benjamin Franklin Broadway".

Did any of your family come from Ireland?

Per LDS site a John Liasey Broadway married a Mary Bechom abt 1807 in Ireland.

Searching any reference to Ireland for Broadway's.

Mine settled in Staffordshire UK prior to the 1851 census.

I am not sure. I haven't gotten that far yet. Right now we are located mostly in Louisiana. Hope to get further this summer.

My family has ties with the Broadways from LA. I know you are asking for help on your posting and now I am. I have Annie Broadway (b. march 21, 1897 d. April 14, 1874) married F. M. Winzor ( b. August 14, 1893 d. August 17, 1968). I cannot get past either one of them. I understand that Annie's family had a store/boarding house in Beauregard Parish, La. and that was how she met F. M. She is supposedly Sowallee Indian. if that connects in any way please contact me.

Hi, I notcied you had several posts on RootsWeb from a few years ago, I believe, about the Broadway family in Louisiana. I was wondering if you ever found out anything else. I am descended from Elizabeth (Kizzie) Broadway (b. Feb 20, 1879, LA / d. July 17, 1957, LA). She was the daughter of Willis Broadway and Elizabeth Matthews, I think. She married John W. Mitchell. They are both buried in Sabine Parish Louisiana. I am trying to find out about her parents and where they came from, etc. If you have found anything out, I would love to know!

Thanks, Diana
