You must one of Ruby's children? My name is Nikki. I am Kenneth Hanshaw's Daughter. My grandparents were Herman and Ethel. We lived on the opposite end of Fayard St from you. I am about a year younger than Candice. I have been doing this for about 10 years now. Memories have faded, loved ones have passed on and records are almost hopeless.
It would be great if you could insert yourself and family into the family tree that I have started. It is pretty extensive at this point but some connections that I have are not verified by documentation only my best guess. Do you know alot about the Belle Fountain Plantation and if a man named Edward Henshaw had any ownership in it? He is my only connection to the "Hanshaw" name. I need a complete email address so that I can send you an invite to the tree. It is pretty exciting to connect here. Thanks for sharing and anything you have that can add is great. Looking into doing another family reunion. We had a mini-reunion about a month and a half before Katrina. It was great. It would be awesome to have a book for the family at the next reunion. Anyway I am going on and on. Write me as much as you feel.
