Caddo Parish, located in the far northwestern portion of the state, was created in 1838 from Natchitoches Parish with the name coming from the Caddo Indians who were prominent in this portion of the country.

DeSOTO PARISH, LOUISIANA HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHIES

DeSoto Parish, located in the northwestern side of the state, was established in 1843 out of lands from Natchitoches and Caddo Parish. It was named for Marcel DeSoto who led the first group of European settlers to the area settling on the Bayou Pierre. Many people think this Parish was named for Hernando de Soto, the Spaniard who explored the southeastern United States. In this volume, you will find a brief history of the Parish and then a collection of biographical sketches of persons living there in the late 1890s. Since most of the persons mentioned gave the data to the writer of the material originally, we can assume they knew their family and background. Southern Publishing

Murder on the Abarenda

The initial focus of this volume concerns the heinous murder that took place on board the United States collier Abarenda in 1908. It soon comes to light, however, that the brutal death of the ship’s second in command was but one of a series of terrible tragedies that befell the Weichert family. In their day, each of those incidences quickly became sensationalized stories in newspapers across the country. With the passage of time, those events slipped into obscurity — until now. Chapters include: Robert and Viola Weichert, with accounts of their wedding and children; Walter Robert Weichert’s Sea Service, touching on Abarenda’s First Officer, with testimonies of Third Officer Harry M. Bostwick and Seaman William Easton of the U.S.A.S. Abarenda and the official report of Walter Weichert’s death; The District Court of Porto Rico [Puerto Rico]; Carpenter Dickson’s Trial, with a chronology, statement to the petit jury by Judge Bernard S. Rodey, verdict and cause for an additional trial; Master Worley’s Trial with complaints by three seamen; Irons; Weichert in the Spanish American War; Widow’s Pension; The Weichert Family without Walter; Chief Officer Walter Robert Weichert’s Final Rest; More Tragedies in the Life of Viola Weichert; and, A History of the U.S.S. Abarenda. An index to full-names, places and subjects completes this well-written work.

Ohio Valley German Biographical Index

Don H. Tolzmann. This new compilation provides access to several major German-American works, heretofore unindexed, covering the German element in the Ohio Valley from the mid-eighteenth to the early twentieth century. These works are Cincinnati in Wort und Bild (Burgheim), 1888; Deutsche Chronik in der Geschichte des Ohio-Thales und seiner Hauptstadt Cincinnati ins Besondere... (Klauprecht), 1864; Early Nineteenth-Century German Settlers in Ohio (Mainly Cincinnati and Environs), Kentucky, and Other States: Parts 1-3 (Smith), 1984; and Cincinnati Sonst und Jetzt (Tenner), 1878. These resources are available in most large public libraries and in research, genealogical, and university libraries. This volume is of particular value to researchers interested in those rural and urban areas which were settled by German-Americans who came from the greater Cincinnati area, such as Lawrence County, Tennessee; New Ulm, Minnesota; Guttenberg, Iowa; Teutopolis, Illinois; and Oldenburg, Indiana. Individuals in the index are arranged alphabetically by surname; the source is given with each name but no other data is included. Altogether, 3,754 names are indexed here; non-German names in the sources are excluded. (1992), 2016, 8½x11, paper, 88 pp.

Rabbit Warrior : A Cape Cod Pilgrimage of Healing and Self Discovery

Rabbit Warrior is a captivating memoir of a transformative journey of renewal and discovery. Disoriented by intense mourning over the loss of both her mother and sister within a short time span, the author found consolation and reconciliation on a pilgrimage of solace to her beloved Cape Cod home.
Emotionally overwhelmed, Janet turned inward for personal healing and wholeness. As she quietly contemplated the meaning of life and death, the Cape’s wildlife became a voice for inspiration and revelation. Horseshoe crabs, lobsters, a great blue heron, and rabbits “spoke” to her of life: change and evolution, pain and suffering, death and dying. Supported on her journey by daily journal writing that exposed persons, places and memories stored deep within, she unmasked falsehoods, gave up protective “magical thinking,” and examined relationships in an effort to live a more authentic life.
Writers and fellow soul-searching travelers helped Janet dispel guilt, expunge destructive messages and peel away emotional layers accumulated over decades. As she traversed her soul, Janet resolved to move ever deeper towards her core, her spiritual center. A summer which began with overwhelming sorrow mixed with angry confusion, ended with transformative feelings of enlightenment, forgiveness, love and rebirth.
Janet hopes that both her memoir, as well as her summer reading list, will provide a template for other Rabbit Warriors who might wish to undertake their own liberating journey as well. (310pp. Masthof Press, 2016.)
