CADDO PARISH, LOUISIANA HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHIES

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. In this volume, there is a brief history of the area from the beginning up to the time of the original publication in the late 1890s. Included is a collection of brief histories of many of the early families of the area. The family information comes from these families themselves so we would assume it to be fairly accurate.

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

Life and Times of Gen. Sam Dale, the Mississippi Partisan by Claiborne, J.F.H. Hardback

Dale: Life and Times of Gen. Sam Dale, the Mississippi Partisan by Claiborne, J.F.H. Hardback 159-023 151003G Gen. Sam Dale was a soldier, frontiersman, backwoods politician, and adventurer. Born in Virginia, Dale was active on the frontier as it moved westward through Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi. Based on personal interviews, the book describes his frontier adventures, his fights with Indians during the Creek Wars, his character and achievements, and relates the frontier and its customs in the style of the time in which he lived. Dale commanded a battalion of Kentucky volunteers against the Creeks in 1814 and carried dispatches for General Andrew Jackson from Georgia to New Orleans. After the war, he became a trader at Dale's Ferry in Alabama, was appointed colonel of militia, held various local offices, and was a delegate to the 1816 convention that divided the territory of Mississippi. He was a member of the first general assembly of Alabama and served in the state legislatures of both Alabama and Mississippi.
