Claiborne Journal during the Civil War
Posted by: George Windes Date: April 18, 2001 at 13:12:18

I've copied an interesting journal kept by a
Claiborne Parish farmer during the Civil War.
He never identifies his name, but speaks of
many neighbors, friends, his children, Homer,
My connection is that the Journal is signed,
"Dr. W.F. Howell of DeSoto Parish." Howell
was my ancestor, but died in 1861. We don't
know if the unused journal was sold at the
estate sale for Dr. Howell or susequently
used by some family member related to Doctor
The Journal can be ordered (microfilm) from
the LDS library. It's found under "Howell."
Hope this helps someone.
