Bye bye, Baton Rouge

Today was our last day in Baton Rouge. We started the day off going to church with our cousin Gene at the church he, his wife Cassandra and our other cousin Carl attend. The service was awesome and the message was very timely. We really enjoyed ourselves.

We met a fellow churchmember/friend of Gene's who has family in Ferriday, Concordia Parish, LA. That is where Jean's father and my paternal and maternal grandfathers are from. He told me that he knew some Sewells from an area called Wiseville. He offered to help me to gather information regarding them.

We had lunch/dinner at Carl's house tonight. His wife Allene is a great cook and tries to feed you to death. The food was, of course good, in addition to the mini sweet potato and pecan pies.

Overall, Baton Rouge was good to us, as it was last year.

We headed back to New Orleans at about 7pm. We then headed to see the movie "Street Kings" with my cousin Freddy. I could have passed on that one. **Laughs**

Tomorrow we will head to the New Orleans Public Library to look at New Orleans specific records. We're then going to head to Providence Memorial Park Cemetery to take pictures of graves of family members. We're then going to the French Quarter again with RaiChel and to where the levees broke during Hurricane Katrina.
