Hello all. This is a partial listing of surnames listed in Black Bayou Cemetery. Hope this helps someone. If you want information regarding one of the surnames listed, I will be happy to post it for you. (Dates of death range from 1886 to 1960)

BLACK BAYOU: This old cemetery is on the Vivian-Gilliam highway, about four miles from Vivian. There was a Baptist church beside the cemetery, but it was burned down during a forest fire several years ago. Black Bayou cemetery is uncared for, and many of the markers are of native stone.

Whitehead, White, Thomas, Gray, Garner, Hurdle, Pitts, Thompson, McLain, Thomason, Gibson, Grambling, Cox, Harrington, Parker, Allen, Chappell, Frazier, Peninger, Williams, Wilkins, Comer, Burney, Bruner, SPears, Festervan, Taylor, Law, Ivins, Conley, Harris, Robertson, Owens, Hugh, Warden, Clark, Barr, Massey, Chiles, Parker

I don't have a complete listing for Black Bayou Cemetery. I copied off about six pages of this cemetery's listing on a hunch. I actually found my great great grandparents and great great great grandpa's graves there! (No one remembered where they were buried.) THere is a complete listing of the gravesites of Black Bayou in the Vivian Library.

Sorry can't be more help.
