Prune picker

This is the blog site of an old man. As a native Californian I call myself a prune picker. I live in a fifth wheel trailer. My front door is 25 steps from my daughter’s front door in the Piney Woods of North Louisiana. My blogs are often silly and or trivial, and some times educational and serious. I hope that some are interesting. None are long.

Preparing these blogs seems to fill a need in my life. I am compelled to do it. It helps fill the time until I die. I always have a job to do.

Meeting of Northeast Louisiana Genealogy Society

In a discussion about the poor maintenance of the Monroe City Cemetery it was pointed out that a member of the body guard of Jefferson Davis was buried there.

  1. Is it this cemetery?
    Old City Cemetery
    18th & DiSiard Streets
    Monroe, LA 71201
    318-329-3296

    As this cemetery is listed as accepting current burials with the Louisiana Cemetery Board, the city is in charge of upkeep.

    Here is the contact number to file a complaint about the city to the Louisiana Cemetery Board.
    Photographs and dates of poor upkeep are oftentimes most helpful.
