This story was told to me by a man who was 88 years old who lived in Avoyelles Parish. This happened when he was 5 years old and he lived along Bayou Jack or Bayou Jacque. A man was going down the road in his wagon and there appeared ahead of him a women dressed in black with a hat and a clear veil. Although this was not even a gravel road it was actually a bubby trail there was not a spec of dust on her or any sweat as it was a hot summer day. He asked her if she wanted a ride and she agreed saying she was going to a family that he knew lived down the road. When she got there she knew everyone by name but no one knew who she was. The family took her in and she began to teach and preach about Jesus Christ. Soon many people were coming everyday to listen and to pray with this women who called herself Miss Jane but it was in the French rendering. She knew everyone by name even though they had never seen her before nor could anyone figure how she could know everyone. Then after about 2 weeks of praying and preaching she announced she was leaving and had more work to do. She left walking down the road on foot. After a while the family looked and she had dissappeared. It was agreed upon by everyone she was an Angel sent to this remote area.
