Melissa -- My ancestors H.W. & Elizabeth Haden lived in Leon County ca. 1850-1860. They seem to have had and lost a couple of children there, before returning to Louisiana with no children. I'd like to find out what happened to the children. I don't expect you to search for me, but can you answer a couple of local history questions for me? For one thing, was this a tough place to live in at that time -- that is, is it likely that the scenario was failed pioneers, unprepared for the hardships of Leon County life? For another, where would babies of farmers most likely be buried? Are some cemeteries a more likely choice for economic reasons, for example? Any hints will be appreciated!
