Looking for information on the Mt Hebron Church in/near Lisbon, Claiborne Parish, LA and the cemetery across the road from the church. I descend from the second marriage of Rilla Johnson (Crowder) Tarver who is buried there. She died in 1883. Her maiden name is believed to be Isom. Her third spouse was Micajah Tarver who is also buried there. He died in 1889. Micajah can also be found as Micajah Tanner and there are several Tanner's buried in this cemetery. Among other names are Mitcham and O'Bannon. Based on names on the headstones, looks as if this was a family cemetery more than a church cemetery, but I really do not know. Since it is located across the road from the church, then perhaps they were members of this church which was formed in 1848. I do not know if it is still standing and used as a church. Surely, some one in the area knows something about the church's history and the cemetery. There might even be descendants still living in the area. I am also hoping that maybe some one in the area will be willing to take pictures for me. Of course, I will gladly pay for film, postage, etc.
