Hello Scott Harris, I was looking thru the messages concerning Pointe Coupee and saw your posting about "Belvue Plantation" (is this the correct spelling?) I have a copy of a letter from one of my ancestors dated 1861 (he was a Confederate soldier) in the letter he says when he comes home he will visit "Bellvue". He died before he could make that visit. His name was Charles Henry Ambrose Spencer Brown. (whew - long name). Charles Brown had been a school teacher before the war. His step father James McCallum owned a plantation on the river in Pointe Coupee (1850 - 1870). I wonder if the McCallums or Charles Brown were mentioned in any data you have? Also will you answer some questions? How the the plantation get it's name? Did the Gayle's own it during the War? Thanks for any help you can give me. Sincerely, Gay Rivet Pearson (James Mc was my great great grandfather.
