Sabine
Parish

Sabine Parish was created on March 7, 1843 , from Natchitoches Parish and the parish was named in honor of the Sabine River and the so-called Sabine Free State . The Parish seat is Many .The parish was created at a time when America had entered upon a new era of progress. A government survey in 1831 laid out the Sabine area in townships and sections and this, together with the clearing of the Red River "raft" by Henry Miller Shreve opened the Red River to steamboat traffic and gave impetus to the colonization of the area. Steamboats began to ply other rivers and their whistles were heard regularly on the Sabine. Popular landings were Columbus, Pendleton, and Carter's Ferry. About three miles south of Pendleton was the large and flourishing river port of Sabine Town. The influx of settlers reached its zenith just prior to the War Between the States.

Welcome to this Louisiana Genealogy Trails Website.

My name is Janice, and I am your host for Louisiana.  If you would like to submit data for this site, please email me with your submissions. Happy Trails to you on your quest for your ancestors.

This is a new site, fashioned after our successful
Illinois Trails websites, and we hope to soon add data here that can help Louisiana researchers as much as we've been able to help our Illinois researchers.

We need some help to do that though - volunteers to host these county websites. If you can make a basic webpage, and you have a desire to transcribe data for the free use of all researchers, we can use your talents!
Review our
Volunteer Information and email Kim.

In the meantime,
join our mailing list to be kept apprised of updates to this website.
