Re: Johnie James Wallace- Louisiana

In Reply to: Johnie James Wallace- Louisiana by Merry Jon Wallace of 18896

Hi Merry.

I checked the LA Death Index and found the following entries. You can order this death certificate from the LA Secretary of State's office (see http://www.sec.state.la.us/archives/archives/archives-library.htm), and they should list the names of the deceased's parents, to the best knowledge of the informant.
Lucy Wallace
Death Date: 20 Jun 1949 Age: 69 Years
Gender: F Race: Negro
Parish: Caddo Volume: 6 Certificate: 803

As a next of kin, you should also be able to request the death certificate of Edward Hudson Wallace. You'll need to provide as exact a death date as possible. See this for more information: http://www.oph.dhh.louisiana.gov/recordsstatistics/vitalrecords/

Here is the family in a few of the censuses:
1930 United States Federal Census > Louisiana > Bienville > Police Jury Ward 5 > District 17 > Page 12B
Dwelling 231/Family 237
owns home (worth $400)
Edward H Wallace, head, owns a radio, white, 49, married, age 20 at first marriage, reads, writes, b LA, father b TX, mother b LA, farmer
Lucy, wife, whtie, 51, married, age 22 at first marriage, reads, writes, b LA, father b Mississippi, mother b LA

Dwelling 104/Family 104
