D’ARBONNE COOKBOOK HISTORY

Darbonne Cookbook Honeycutt Feazel

“I’ll take this “un!” exclaims John Honeycutt, pioneer hunter and trapper and Union Parish’s first settler, as he chooses a wife from one of the Feazel girls, in this artist’s conception.

According to records, Honeycutt, who came to this territory about 1790, was granted a tract of land in the Point community of what is now Union Parish. Learning from Indians camped near the mouth of Bayou Corney of a family of settlers nearby, he traveled about 15 miles and came to the cabin of Feazel, who had several daughters of marrying age. Needing a wife, Honeycutt asked for the hand of one in marriage. Feazel obligingly lined them, Honeycutt made his selection, and Feazel drew up the marriage contract.
