|Bio and Links|
I started researching my family (Benton-Constantine-Dugas-Mouton) back in 1987 in the pre-computer genealogy days, So, most of my research remains on paper. After a 15 year break, I'm gradually getting info digitized, but it will be a while before All my entries and grave photos will find its way onto this platform. |
I have several Louisiana Benton family photos. My grave photos were primarily taken by two cousins I am working with on that family Surname. I do need to get hold of Benton pics from the Florence / Darlington / Williamsburg County areas regarding the Simeon T. Benton Clan if someone can help.
My Dugas / Mouton Families arrived in Nova Scotia in the 16th and 17th centuries and were part of the Acadian Exile by the English. Families were split up, some were never reunited. Several died at sea during the brutal English transport. Survivors were taken to
France, England, the Dominican Islands, or various East Coast ports where they were placed into indentured service for years. Eventually with help from the Spanish who governed the area in the 1750s-1760s, Louisiana became a place of reunion for those that had remained scattered after being forced to leave all they knew as home.
The Constantines, although it seems some arrived in the Quebec, Canada area, most of my relatives seem to have come directly from France to New Orleans and later to Acadiana in the late 18th or early 19th centuries. The name will also be seen as Constantin after their arrival in Louisiana.

Thank you so much for all the photos!!
|Cindy Cornwell McCachern||Nelson Tyler|
Yes, I think this must be the same Nelson Tyler that you wrote about. I've updated his memorial and would love for you to add the headstone photo. Thanks for sending the information.

He is my husband's great grandfather.

You're missing Jean, between Antoine and Jacques. Jean is the father of Jacques, not Antoine. FROM "THE MOUTONS": My direct ancestors in order: Antoine: Born and died in France; Jean: Born Marseille, France, 1685, Died Beaubassin, Acadie, c. 1740; Jacques: Born Grand Pré, Acadie, 1714, Died Beaubassin, Acadie, c. 1750; Jean Diogene dit "Neveu": Born Beaubassin, Acadie, 1740, Died St. Martin Parish, 1802; Jean Fréderic: Born St. James Parish, 1768, Died St. Martin Parish, 1815; Jean Augustin: Born St. Martin Parish, 1796, Died Vermilion Parish, 1880; Toussaint dit "Lessaint": Born St. Martin Parish, 1816, Died Vermilion Parish, 1897; Onezieme Lessin: Born Vermilion Parish, 1855, Died Vermilion Parish, 1942; Joseph Clodiste: Born Vermilion Parish, 1875, Died Perry, LA, 1936; Joseph Clodiste is my grandfather, buried with his wife (Odilia David) in the St. Mary Magdalene Cemetery and Mausoleum in Abbeville. I created and manage their memorials on Find-A-Grave. If you live near Lafayette, the Lafayette Parish library on Jefferson Street has a section devoted to genealogy. I'm pretty sure they have "The Moutons" book.

Cossinade is about 3 miles northwest of Kaplan on LA Hwy 13. It was a thriving community, but began to decline about the time that the Holy Rosary Church was moved from Cossinade to Kaplan, about 1900. The church owned (and still owns) the Cossinade cemetery. The cemetery is still active. Google Vermilion Parish Cemeteries. Probably your first hit will be a web site with all the cemeteries in Vermilion Parish. Scroll down to Cossinade. Click on the icon that looks like a headstone. You will get a list prepared by Mr. Edwin Hebert in July 1996. It's a text file. I don't see Azelie Abshire in the list. No Mrs. Lessin either.
I remember at one time you had husbands (1) Joseph Alleman and (2) Luke Dugas on Marie Aureline's site. I have same info...was this incorrect as you have removed the husbands names?

Try again, the marker is on-line now. That happens some times, must be a flaw in the system.
CROWLEY IS ONLY 20 MILES AWAY, RAYNE IS ANTHER 8 TO 10 MINUTES, IOTA IS ONLY 15 MINUTES AND ELTON IS ANTHER 20MINUTES. ALL THESE TOWNS ARE LESS THAN 25 MINUTES AWAY. LIKE I SAID , IF THE FUNERAL HOME IS LISTED IT IS MOST LIKLEY I GOT IT FROM THERE. I FORGET TO ADD THE SOURCE.
ALL THESE FUNERAL HOMES ARE LISTED ON THE INTERNET.
NEWSPAPER FROM OPELOUSAS IS THE DAILY WORLD. ALSO LAFAYETTE PAPER IS THE DAILY ADVERTISER. ALL ARE ON THE WEB.LAKE CHARLES PAPER IS THE AMERICAN PRESS.
ALL THESE TOWNS ARE CLOSE TO EUNICE.

I AM NOT SURE WHICH SMITH FAMILY YOU ARE ASKING ABOUT. THE OBITS THAT HAVE THE FUNERAL HOME SHOWING IS PROBABLY WHERE I GOT THEM. SOME OBITS ARE OLS, IF THEY HAVE "LCAP", THOSE ARE FROM THE LAKE CHARLES AMERICAN PRESS.
