Union Parish Courthouse (2)

Shiloh to Canaan is a look at the history of Union Parish, Louisiana and the families who made it the special place it is.  It happens to be the place I call home.

I have always joked about being related to everyone in the parish.  Years later I would discover that it wasn’t a joke.  While they are not all relatives you can find a connection to almost everyone you meet.  And that is what this blog is about.

The intention is to post the histories of some of the early families who were the pioneers of Union Parish, including the ones who have not been written about.  I would like to post stories and imagines of my home that have never been seen or told to the public before and I invite anyone who loves the parish the way I do to contribute.  Whether it be a correction, a family tree or a favorite memory, please send it in or post it.  I will also be posting pictures and old articles from local historians.

I hope you will enjoy this trip back in time as much as I will.
