Edna Matthews Liggin will always be remembered as the official historian of Union Parish and the Book Mobile Lady. She began writing the Uncle Lige column in The Gazette in 1939. Over the years she wrote many articles about the Union Parish history, the people there and her bottle collection. In her retired years she enjoyed visiting the older people in the Union Parish community.


One thought on “Tenant Child

  1. Vividly remember Mrs. Liggin. Use to go to the library as a child and she was there as our Librarian along with Mrs. Gillum. Such a sweet lady and then when bottle collecting came into Vogue the end of the 60s she embraced it. Recall coming back from the camp on Middlefork Bayou and her barn wall was covered with bottles.
