  1. Thanks Luke for all the historical info you shate. I do enjoy the great pics and info you share with all of us. I love being able to catch up and share with all my family especially my niece's n nephews that have no idea what wonderful historical facts that exist right here where they live. If you have written any books on our parish or articles I'd love to be able to purchase some to give to them or at the very least read up n share. My dad Lucian “Pete” Taylor used to share from memory his account of growing up here. I remember one story he told of seeing the actual car Bonnie n Clyde was killed n just days after their deaths. It was brought to rayville and put on display and he paid .10 cents to view it, as he said hands on close, lol. He told us it was still very bloody and he was so shocked to see how shot up it was. He shared so many stories with us up until his death n 2007. Thks again Luke and God Bless for giving us ppl the chance to enjoy your stories with us. Joey Taylor, Rayville, LA.
