This small chapel in Louisiana hosts a number of Aulds profiles in its cemetery. It is believed that Robert Baxter (Auld) Aulds started the church, although it was not originally named after him.

From the Church Website:

"On April 18, 1901, a two acre tract of land in the northwest corner of Ouachita Parish was purchased for the slight sum of ten dollars. The buyer was a non-denominational church in its infancy, a merger of three denominational congregations (Methodist, Episcopalian, Missionary Baptist). In the early days, the congregation hosted Methodist and Baptist ministers every other Sunday, respectively. Appropriately, the fledgling church was named Union Church, and so it remained for years until it became Aulds Chapel Independent Congregational Church, and then, finally, Aulds Chapel Bible Church."

Auld vs. Aulds

There has been a lot of confusion over the addition of an "S" to the end of the Auld surname. The S was added sometime after 1900, mostly to the Farmerville, Union County, Louisiana Auld's. Those that moved away from Farmerville seemed to keep it "Auld" while those that stayed in the Farmerville area added the S. It is unclear if this was a census taker that decided to add the S and everyone went with it, or was a conscious effort to change the name.

There are a number of Auld's that were born as an Auld and died as an Aulds. Headstones tend to reflect the S, while official documentation such as birth certificates and Pre-1900 census support the Auld,
