Welcome to Morningside ...

Although we found mention of Morningside during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Morningside was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..

While we are confident that Morningside was located in Caddo Parish, we don't know its actual location within the parish.

We've added Morningside to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Morningside - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Morningside, please Contact Us.


Time Zone: The area where we believe that Morningside might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

We believe that Morningside would be found within the (318) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Morningside and then turned east". While Morningside could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Morningside as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Miller Creek to see Pete ... Miller Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Morningside could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong parish. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
