    • Thoughts on Eliza Charrier Gardner Goulette by Erin Perkins Antley
      I have been researching this relative for over a year now and with the help of some of her other descendents I think we may have finally found her family line. I must say that it is not guaranteed to be right--this can be described as an educated guess with what little we could find about her. I believe her to be buried in the Oauchita City Cemetery. Her grave is said to be marked with a piece of petrified wood, but I have not located her actual grave. I think that possibly her first husband--Charles Gardner, who would be my great-great grandfather, is buried there also. For those who have never been to Ouachita City Cemetery, it is in the middle of the woods between Spencer, Louisiana and Sterlington, Louisiana. It is not terribly hard to locate and it is a fascinating piece of the history of this area. But there are many unmarked graves in this cemetery, their wooden markers and stones lost to time.

      Comments: Greetings! I believe that I am a descendant of the Gardner family line. My great-great grandfather was Charles Gardner. He was married to Eliza Charrier in July of 1870. Charles was born in 1852 and died sometime around 1883. On the 1860 census, there is a Charles Gardner listed as the child of Thomas S. and Emily Gardner. He was 8 years of age. This is consistent with the age of my Great-great grandfather. Family legend has it that he was a riverboat gambler. He was married to Eliza in 1870, they had 2 sons, Willie and Wyatt. I am descended from Willie. I do not know where Charles is buried. We suppose that if he really was a riverboat gambler, he may not have had a official burial. I really think that this is the correct lineage and that it is the answer to long standing questions in my family as to our roots. I have a picture of Charles and I recently made contact with another long lost cousin who is a descendant and she is going to send me a copy of a photo of Charles's wife Eliza. I look forward to hearing from you.
