The cemetery where the Cawthon families are buried is next to this church in Midway, Richland Parish, Louisiana. I am wondering if they still hold Sunday services there, and if they might have any records. When I was there, the doors were locked, but it was in the middle of the week. If anyone out there knows anything about this church, I'd appreciate the info.

This post is in response to a question about the Leo Williamson family. The Williamson farm was located near what is now Highway 577 and the Plum Grove Road. The area was called the Unity community. The Williamsons were from Copiah County, Mississippi, which is adjacent to Simpson County. There were at least two Williamson families that left South Carolina prior to 1820, moved to Louisiana, then to Mississippi, then to West Carroll Parish. Amos Williamson and his family left Mississippi in the mid-1830s. Leo Williamson went to Pioneer High School in West Carroll Parish.
Who are these people?
Sally Jo Gibson sent me this picture of the "Old Floyd" Courthouse, but didn't know who the people were. If anyone knows who they are, please let the rest of us know. Just post a reply.
