St. Landry-'Up From Slavery' Then Came the Fire!!  By Leona W. Smith


See the prophetic words concerning New Orleans and the United States 

in the book!!  

-

It's an African 

American Biographical Novel

It is so named for the Williams, Berry and Lavergne (Lavine) families 
who came there.  

However, the book contains info about my deep roots of my African American 
family in Louisiana-Southwest as a whole. 
My deep roots in my maternal family come from my Free People of Color such as the Bonnettes 
(Bonin, Bonot, Bonet), the Senegals and the Gathes (Gatte) families which were in the state 
according to Father Hebert's  Southwest Louisiana Records books from the early 1700s

Editorial Review:

From a child, Leona W. Smith was always intrigued by family stories told to her by her parents, 
grandparents, and close family friends. Birthed out of the intense desire of her mother (Shirley 
Mae LaVergne Williams) to discover more about her paternal roots, Leona set out on a journey to 
research her family's history and discovered some amazing truths about her ancestors. Told through 
family records and stories handed down through many generations and through the use of true -to -
life accounts obtained from Federal Slave Narratives set in Louisiana, St. Landry - Up From 
Slavery Then Came the Fire!! is an epic story deeply rooted in historical fact that spans over 300 
years of the LaVergne and Williams families. 
From the shores of Africa to the rice fields of St. Landry Parish, Louisiana and beyond, St. 
Landry - Up From Slavery Then Came the Fire! explores the hardships, struggles, defeats and 
triumphs endued by the families through the cruel injustices of slavery, classism and racism. Most 
importantly, it also explores the families' resolute faith in God and gives documented accounts 
and firsthand testimonies of the amazing, miraculous power of God at work in their lives down 
through the generations that has left a legacy of hope, courage, and success that still endures 
today.
