Baham Family from Folsom

I am looking for information and would love any photos of Robert Baham, his brother Forest Baham, their parents Ansel and Mary, and any other family members. My great grandmother was Irene Baham, married to Robert Baham. Her sister Bella was married to Forest.

I'm not related to the family, but I found an obituary for Forest. It's attached.

Thank you so much! I have searched the internet and have never found an obituary...

I greatly appreciate it.

You're welcome. I used GenealogyBank to find it (a pay site). I’ll see if I can find obits for the others, but most in Folsom would have been listed in the St. Tammany Farmer which isn’t online that I know of. Forrest was in the New Orleans paper.

Have you found them on FindaGrave yet?

Plenty of other Bahams listed in the same cemetery with headstone photos.

I am a member of and actually entered a lot of the photos for this cemetery. This is actually the Baham Family Cemetery and is not a part of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, although Forest and his brother Robert played a huge part in getting the church. My mother is a Baham and these are her (mine) family members, including her parents and grandparents, etc.

I would absolutely love obits for these people from the past and am searching for anyone who may have photos. I don't live in Louisiana and don't really know my Folsom relatives well enough to ask, or they are not interested in ancestry enough to help me. Bummer!

Anyway, I greatly thank you for all your help.

Bella’s obit was in the NO paper, but for some reason GenealogyBank doesn’t have it online. (The online obituary index has her listed as Della.)

Are you interested in obits for these others buried in the same cemetery?

Wade Baham – died 1969
Steven Wade Baham – died 1973
