Strong interest in geneaology and Cajun ancestry. I am Louisiana nativeand have taken pictures of graves in Jeff Davis Parish and Georgia. I enjoy genealogy and helping others find their ancestors. I will gladly transfer management of a memorial to a direct descendant of someone I have added if you are an active contributor to find a grave.
RE: Paul S. Arceneaux No problem. Many have erroneously assumed the same. I'm always happy to clear up the confusion. My Aunt Natalie and her adoptive parents Bob & Florence were very special people to me.
Paul S. Arceneaux A correction to Our Lady of Seven Dolors Cemetery in Welsh, LA: Paul S. Arceneaux (my father) was not the son of Robert & Florence Arceneaux. He was the son of Sanciere (St.Cyr) Arceneaux and Rose Edna Sandoz. The confusion perhaps comes from the fact that Sanciere & Rose Edna had six children: Paul, Morgan, Leon, Lyne Keith, Natalie, and Neal Arceneaux. After the death of Rose Edna's only female child, Natalie, around 2 or 3 years old, was adopted by St. Cyr's brother, Robert and wife Florence. The boys all grew up with their father St. Cyr (too soon a widower) along with their numerous aunts and uncles on the Arceneaux homestead south of Welsh, LA.
Need Help finding LATIL grandmother Hello Mhardy, you have awesome findings. I have been looking for many years for my greatgrandmother, Callie LATIL. Per a short bio from the Picayune Newspaper, I read she was buried in Magnolia (probably near her Latil family). Her father: Hector Laurent Latil. She was married to Capt. Bill Eckles, had 4 children, divorced and remarried and died within 6 months. I have minimal data on her. She remarried Henry D. Griggsby. I suspect she may have died in childbirth. I have called the cemetery organization and get absolutely no where. They state they are the caretakers and have no records. I am sure the family would have marked her grave. Her death was 6 Aug 1904. Thanks in advance for any help. I understand if you cannot find anything - but I have to try. Many hugs for your work helping us find loved ones and sharing. Regards, Irin Smith
