In the paperwork that Lillian just sent to me, it included the paperwork that Mr. Parks had done. I, too, was quite impressed with the thoroughness of the report. Lillian had also sent me correspondence that she had received from Charlene Brazell, Hershel Walker III and Corine Nyegaard Carter. I have been in close correspondence with Corine's daughter, Nan, who is living in Hawaii. She has been writing back and forth to her mother with the info that I have been giving them. While here, I have done quite a bit of research for them on the Nyegaards and Odoms, as well as the rest of our family. Corine is getting up in age and has retired. Her husband's health is failing fast and she has been quite busy taking care of him. Lillian had also emailed me sometime the end of February stating that Thad Pardue had emailed her regarding some other relative that had passed away. I retrieved the obituary and emailed to Lillian so that she could have for her records. I have been sending Lillian and Nan everything I can get hold of. I made copies for Lillian of all the obits that I had, as well as death certificates, etc. Meanwhile, I have been emailing her pictures of the tombstones as well. If my Uncle Roy was not so ill and needing me to help take care of him, I would be in the cemeteries, courthouses, libraries, etc. everyday. I now have over 9,000 people in my family tree. And to think ----- there are still so many more!!!!!!!

Thank you for the picture of Nimrod Wasson. The picture came out quite large. I hope that I will be able to print out the picture. I have pictures of some of the family that people have emailed me and I put it into my Family Tree Maker. I would be interested in the picture that you may have of Wesley Walker and his house. I will email you some pics that have been sent to me, as well as pictures of tombstones. I am not sure that you even would care for tombstone pics, however, I believe them to be a great source for accurate information, as well as obituaries. It is also cheaper than having to pay tons of money for other documents. It seems that here, the families are mainly buried together so it makes it so much easier to find the rest of them. Below are just a few of the obits that I have copies of and have typed up to put into my Family Tree Maker. I have also attached the tombstone picture of Mary B. Walker Wallace and Wesley W. Walker, Jr. This is just a few of the items that I have. I will send you more pics in a different email. As I am not real computer savvy, I do not know how to send a file with several pics attached. If I send more than 2 pics, I get a message that the file is too big to send. I shrink the pics down, but try to leave them big enough for the other party to be able to view and still be readable. Mind you, my pictures were more or less taken for my purposes in order to verify names and dates. They were not taken to look professional. Ha! Many I have cropped to get the background out so that I could concentrate on the inscription and no so much the flowers or what the tombstone itself looked like.

1895 Obituary of Lorena Walker Nyegard, Union Parish Louisiana Farmerville "Gazette", issue of Wednesday, 18 September 1895, page 3 ================================================================================== We were saddened last week to learn of the death of Mrs. Lorena Neygard, the estimable wife of Mr. W. C. Neygard, who lives several miles east of town. She was young, beautiful, christian-spirited and the thrifty help meet [sic - probably should be mate] of an honorable and energetic young farmer. It is sad to contemplate that she was cut down so early in life by the reaper Death, when her home life was so happy and the future appeared all happiness to her. She was the daughter of that estimable couple, Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Walker, Sr., of Marion, this parish. THE GAZETTE extends the deepest sympathy to the aged parents and the grief stricken husband.
