The Watt Cemetery is in Bienville Parish, and the old "Ratcliff" Cemetery is in Red River Parish (it use to be all in Bienville Parish in the 1870's.

With help from others, my brother Buddy & MaryEllen Hobbs have found the old Watt Cemetery and have permission to enter, clean, and Record this cemetery this next week.
This Watts cemetery is believed to have Watt & Moores and who knows who else buried in it.(25-30 tombstones).
They also have permission to enter/clear/record the old Ratcliff??? Cemetery in Red River Parish maybe a mile
W or NW of Mt.Zion Cemetry. It is back in the woods. If they have time it will be done this next week also.

IF YOU THINK YOU MAY HAVE RELATIVES IN EITHER OF THESE CEMETERIES, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND WE WILL CHECK FOR THEIR TOMBSTONE. We will put all the tombstones on the internet for everyone to share.
