Thibodaux in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
Rev. Daniel McNair
Reverend Daniel McNair founded the Presbyterian Church of Thibodaux on June 6, 1847. It was the first Presbyterian congregation established west of the Mississippi River. A North Carolina native born in 1806, he was assigned to preach in the Mississippi Valley and south Louisiana. Pastor McNair was a stoutly built man, of great piety and grave in speech and facial appearance. He married Martha Goode, a founding member of the Presbyterian church. Her parents, Sidney Moore Goode and Louisiana Scudday Goode, owned a plantation just east of the town center. They, too, all are buried in the cemetery.
Erected by St. John's Historic Cemetery.
