Hi John, Thanks for answering my posting. Haven't worked on the Huies for a while. They are the family of my son's fiancee's mother. I'd be happy to get any current info you might have and I'm happy to send you what I've found. Did you know that your great-great-grandfather Josiah Huie and his wife Eliza owned a big cotton plantation near Alexandria in Rapides Parish, Louisiana? Josiah died in Sept. of 1860, but on the census that year the plantation was worth $208,600! In 1860! Eliza was a widow, but head of house hold and owned 161 slaves. But for the Civil War you would have been born with a 'silver spoon in your mouth'. A Union major came to down and, in spite of Abe Lincoln's order to save the cotton and bring it north where it was much needed, the major got ticked off cause the locals dammed some streams and grounded his ships. So he burned everyone's cotton. Lincoln relieved him of his command. But that and the end of slavery marked a turn of events for the Huie's. However, there are a number of things in Alexandria named for them, including a museum. Josiah's son Augustine Thomas Huie married Victoria Cole and they were the parents of Charles Lee Huie, your grandfather. Did you ever hear any stories about that growing up?
