Louise was born after 1832 Louise Richardson? ... She passed away in 1911.


Much of Louise or Louisa's information has been a bit confusing and Sources have not been found to prove of disprove anything. Her granddaughter has given account of a few things. She said her Louisa came from Alabama in the Mobile area. She or her won The Belle of Mobile when she was young. She supposedly saw a husband shot in Mobile Bay by the Spanish. This doesn't make sense because the Spanish American war was in 1898 and they were already in Mississippi by then. Another 2x Great grandchild was told that she went to Natchez Mississippi to see her husband off to war. He was on a barge crossing the Mississippi when a cannon went off and he was decapitated. He had turned around to wave goodbye when it happened and Louisa who was holding a baby in her arms witnessed it all from the bank of the river. This story makes a little more sense and supports the thought that she had a first husband and he was killed in the Civil war. The child in her arms may have been Sarah. Sarah's death certificate lists her father as a James Nelson. We know she was married to James Ennis by 1880 Census and they had 4 children living with them at the time in Lincoln County, Mississippi. Sarah had already married and was living close by. We know James Ennis Died sometime between the conception of their child Mattie in who was born in Apr of 1881 and the 1900 Census where Louisa is living with daughter Josephine and is listed as a widow. She is not buried with him.
