Ruth:Thanks for your info re Talitha Low Black.I'm pretty much an amateur at genealogy--most of my research is done on the internet, which I know is not always accurate.I had Fielding Low as the possible father of Talitha, but did not have any info on her mother.Talitha (born 1840 in LA) is my gg grandmother. She is buried in Liberty Hill Cemetery, Bienville Parish, LA.
Do you know which of Talitha Low Black's sisters married into the Hays family?I believe Talitha had three sisters:Lizzie (Caroline), Fanny and Mary.
Also buried at Liberty Hill Cemetery is Inez Hays Black 1897-1989).Don't know if there is any connection to the Hays of Bienville Parish.
Again, thanks.Would appreciate any other info you might run across.
