My brother & wife made it into the Watt Cemetery, but, did not have time due to the weather to make it into the Ratcliff Cemetery.

The Watt Cemetery had 5 graves for George W.Moore & Eliza Jane Giddens children who died young, plus a grave(s) for child(ren) of Perry (Elva Giddens married a Perry, then married someone else, this is why George & Eliza Jane moved to Hope, Ark. when he killed someone in self defense, and why George entered the Civil War in an Arkansas troup and ended the Civil War in a Louisiana Troup). There are other people buried there listed in the Bienville Parish Book Vol. I. Apparently, the tombstones are covered in leaves. When I can get all my notes together, I will try to publish a list from their research.

They hope to return this fall and perhaps they can make it into the Ratcliff Cemetery in Red River Parish and record it. Jeannine
