The Biography and Genealogy Files of the Genealogy Department Part I: A-K Names

Another untapped resource we have in the Ouachita Parish Public Library’s Genealogy department are our family history and biography files. Over the next several days (since the list is HUGE!) I’ll be posting sections of the index we have made. Most of the files are newspaper clippings. Some clippings are unsourced, but most are. We do have some family trees, copies of bible records and other things you just may find useful!

Dinkgrave, Bernard Hemkin (B.H.)  (His letter written to Muse Dabbs on April 16, 1865, was kept by the Dabbs family for 144 years and is now in SC).
Information about the life of Bernard Hempkin Dinkgrave (September 29, 1844-August 31, 1876) submitted by Julia A. Scott:
“Ben Dinkgrave lived a short 32 years but in those years he was Dorcas Dinkgrave’s son a soldier in the cause of the Confederate States of America, a treasured friend of James Muse Dabbs, a Doctor, a Sheriff, a husband to Marie Antoinette Waite, possibly a father, and a martyr to the Republican political cause. He was murdered on Louisville at the Ouachita River by an assassin who was never identified or punished. May God Rest Ben Dinkgrave’s soul.”
