A name I’ve come across often while researching history in Richland Parish is Mrs. Earline Williams Sartor (1891-1963). In addition to stories she retold that were passed down to her, in reference to Frank and Jesse James hiding out in Richland Parish, she also wrote numerous histories about the region. She was married to Frank Balfour Sartor and was the mother of three sons who became physicians in Northeast Louisiana. The following are details from her obituary, printed in the Monroe News Star on December 3, 1963.
