About

This website documents descendants of Charles Wesley Sutherland and Eliza Ellen Powell. It is a forum to share images and memories of family and friends in southwest Louisiana.

I will make an effort to be accurate in the information that is shared on this site. Some stories are based on my own recollection or the memories of others. I apologize in advance for details that may not be completely correct.

Charles and Ellen were my great-great grandparents. As a child, I played on the property that Ellen homesteaded. I remember her oldest son, Robert (my great-grandfather). I am proud of my family legacy and I hope that my children and grandchildren will share in that.

For questions or corrections, contact me at admin@sutherland-swla.com
