Two new CDs of Italians arriving at the Port of New Orleans from Italy
and Sicily has been completed, and vol. 3 is due in Feb. This is the
only compilation of Italians only to this port. Vol. contains 44
passenger lists, vol. 2 contains 22 lists, and vol. 3 will consist of
over 55 lists. The CDs consist of three formats and an A-Z index. All
lists give names, age, marital status, occupation, native country or
town, and final destinations of about 40, 000 Italian family members who
came to settle in this area. Also included are the names of those
deported, were ill, runaways, stowaways, newborns, and those who died on
the passage and the
cause of death.
The lists also name the masters of each ship and the sources of the
microfilm from which the data was copied. The lists give the ports of
departures and other ports the ship may have visited. These CDs are a
complete record of all the Italians who came to New Orleans and then
settled throughout the state of Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and those
who went to other areas.
The cost of the first CD is $40, postpaid. Vol. 2 and vol. 3 cost $35
each, postpaid. More information can be obtained from (or orders placed
with) Shirley Barbara, 11056 Airline Highway, #38, Gonzales, LA 70737.

Looking for information on Louis Harrell who married Virlinda Averett in
1836. Have their line to present. Trying to tie him to Lewis Harrell who
married Mahatible Bryan in 1816 and Parmela Rentz in 1821 to the other
Louis. 1840 Liv. Census shows a Louis Sr. and Louis Jr. living next door to
each other in Coyell Liv. Parish.
Have found no other concrete evidance to tie these two together. Any inf.
would be appreciated.
George W. Keller, decd, Succession of
W. Feliciana Parish, LA
Probate Box 56
(Submitted by Evelyn W. Wallace)
(Comments: Among the papers of the George W. Keller succession is this
newspaper clipping, undated except for the date Sept 27. The year is probably
1843 as indicated in the notice. The defendant in the case is the former
Eleanor Waddell of Wilkinson Co., MS, daughter of Rev. Noel Waddell, a
minister in that community. Her first marriage was to George W. Keller, also
of Wilkinson Co., on or about 11 March 1819. After Keller died before June
1832, Eleanor married James McDonald and relocated to West Feliciana Par.
She had at least five children by George W. Keller. There are many probate
records concerning the administration of Keller's estate in Wilkinson Co..
However, the Orphans' Court records, Feb term 1833 give this information:
Orderedthat Letters of Guardianship be granted to Eleanor Kellar on the
person and property of Wesley S. Keller, George W. Keller, Abel T. Keller,
Mary Jane Keller and Martha G (?) Keller on her entering into Bond with
William Lipscomb and Jesse Saunders as her Securities in the sum of Eighteen
Thousand Dollars. Bond taken and oath duly administered.
Whether Eleanor had children by James McDonald is unknown. George Keller
Bible Record, shows that George Keller, Jr., born 5 Feb 1795, married Eleanor
Waddell 11 Mar 1819. [Mississippi Genealogical Society Publication, CEMETERY
AND BIBLE RECORDS, V. II, *The George Keller Bible*]. There were a number of
Keller families in this general area, and probably at least two, perhaps
three, Keller families in Wilkinson Co. The George Keller Bible Record shows
only two sons with the surname Keller: George [as in George W.] and Thomas.
The latter son was later in Copiah Co., MS, where he died testate ca.
