Family Historian Stephanie Martin Locate Family Records in East Feliciana Parish



Stephanie researching, Amite, LA
This past Tuesday was a good research day for Stephanie Martin, she spent the day in East Feliciana Parish at the Clerk of Court office. She found marriage licenses for her grand parents and great grandparents. She know that her grandfather Owen Quiett was able to sign his own name on the marriage license. She spent $60.00 on copies, some that might help her and some that might help others. There are so many slave names on these documents She felt that she needed to get a copy because someone else could possibly use the record to further their research. As she transcribe them she will post. She also finally found the St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church and it's cemetery. The church was formed in 1804 and she took pictures of a large number of headstones. Again, she will post as soon as she can get them organized in a document. A big thanks to the ancestors for guiding and directing this research. She is  glad to be their granddaughter.
