Welcome to African Roots! This site was built by Patricia Bayonne-Johnson who is researching the surnames Bayonne, Randall, Hicks, Morgan, Sterling/Stirling, Briant and Taylor of Louisiana; Estes and Jones of Mississippi; Butler of Maryland and Louisiana. Family members are invited to share their research, stories, traditions and images.
St. Mary's Baptist Church Cemetery is located a few yards across the road in front of the church. It is not a structured cemetery, just a clearing in the woods with graves. I found Taylors, Morgans, Sterlings and Johnsons buried here.
