Re: [LA] Louisiana Death Records

Found on the 1870 census:
Bunches Bend, Carroll, Louisiana

There is a white overseer by the name of Dennis Brooks (spelled Rooks on another census) that lives nearby. I believe he works for John S. Deeson (spelled Duson on the 1860 slave census). I checked, and there is a 38-year-old male and a 35 year-old female slave on the list.

Found on the 1900 Census:
Ward 5, East Carroll, LA
