Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

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.
