Watts Cemetery has been forgotten, overgrown for 50-75 years. No one has even looked at the cemetery in 15 years. My brother and his wife (Buddy & MaryEllen Hobbs) with help from others in Bienville Parish have FOUND the cemetery, have permission to enter the property, and will be clearing and recording the tombstones this next week. Suppose to have 25-30 graves, some with Watts, some with Moore, and who knows who else.

If YOU think you have relatives in this Cemetery,please
e-mail me the details and names to check. I will send you the list of names recorded ASAP.

They also have permission to enter and record the graves in the overgrown cemetery "Ratcliff" Cem. in Red River Parish.
If they have time, it will also be cleared/recorded this next week, if not it will be done soon.
If you think you have someone buried in it (back in the woods maybe 1 mile or more from Mt. Zion.Cem.) let me know who you are looking for.
