Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest is in getting the local cemeteries catalogued, photographed, and listed on this site, with family links posted whenever possible. I'm especially eager to get photos of those headstones that are in danger of disappearing due to weather, neglect, or vandalism

If you notice errors on my submissions, please send me the corrections and I'll make them as soon as possible. If I manage a memorial for one of your relatives and you'd prefer to manage it yourself, let me know and I'll gladly turn it over to you. The only ones I won't transfer are my direct relatives.

I work full-time, but I'm happy to take photos on weekends when I can.

Please don't be offended if I ask for proof on edit requests. I strive to keep the memorials as accurate as possible.

If you're requesting a transfer or adding information to a memorial, please use the EDIT tab on the memorial to send me the request/information. It makes it much easier to find which memorial you're talking about. Thank you.

RE: Gaspard Toups at Holy Rosary
I have 19 Volumes of Archdiocese of New Orleans Sacramental Records. I also have "St. Charles Parish Abstracts" by Glenn R. cONRAD 1700-1803, "The Geman Coast" 1804-1812 by Glenn R Conrad " German Coast Families by Albert Robicheaux. I have 22 Volumes of Diocese of Baton Rouge Catholic Church Records. I have Birth Baptism, Marriage, and Death Records 1861-1872 from St, John Baptist and St. Charles Parish, La.

I know I have made a few mistakes and I don't mind being corrected, my source is :

Gaspard Toups [ Frderique and Marie Barbe Strimphel], bapt. Mar. 27, 1755, born Mar. 25, 1755, sponsors were Gaspard TOUPS AND Charlotte Sorelle [SCB, B1, 93] Volume 2, page 266 Archdiocese of New Orleans Sacramental Records.

SCB stands for St. Charles Borremeo Church, Destrehan, La. Back then it was known as the Little Red Church.

His father's full name was Jean Frederick Toups and his mother was Anna Barbara Strimphel.

In the Book St. Charles Parish Acts German Coast written by Glenn R. Conrad No 16, Oct 10 1805 Gaspard Toups drew his last Will and Testament states he lives in St. Charles, list all of his children etc.

I hope this is what you need.

Gaspard's daughter Melanie Toups was my ggggg-grandmother.

Sorry to take so long getting back to you on this one; I think the erroneous spouse link may have been added by the person who submitted the other link:

Created by: Graves
Record added: May 08, 2012
Find A Grave Memorial# 89789400

I can't seem to remove the spouse from Gladys' memorial.

Thanks for the correction. I had just talked to the staff yesterday about him. I wondered as the mausoleum at Metairie seemed too small. Then the description for Metairie is confusing.
Thanks for the help. At first had him from Navel records in St Louis #3.
