Norbert LeBoeuf's mother
Hi, I was interested in the following information given in memorial # 57736942:

"Norbert LeBoeuf was a son of Louis Norbert LeBoeuf and Eleonore (or Leonora) Ositte (Daigle) LeBoeuf who married on Nov. 25, 1839 at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Paincourtville, Asumption Parish, Louisiana. Eleonore was a daughter of Hypolite Daigle & Rosalie Dupuis."

Do you know the source of the information about this marriage? I haven't been able to find it in any search of indexed collections.

Hello Mr Heddins.
Grandpa Gene married my grandmother, Phyllis Black Louderman, when I was about 8 years old, sometime around 1980. He was such a quiet man, but I so loved it when he laughed! His whole body would jostle up and down all over, but he barely made any sound!He and my grandmother did lots of traveling and I stayed in their home a couple of weeks each summer. He never minded driving to Tyler to pick up an old elementary friend of mine after my family moved to Victoria, TX in 1983. He allowed us to giggle and talk all night and never seemed to be bothered by us. He treated us with love and kindness just like we were his own flesh and blood.
Grandpa Gene also took us to his farm quite often to check on the cows, search for arrowheads and ride our gokart. My brothers loved driving through fresh cow patties and slinging the mess all over each other. Grandpa Gene didn't even seem to mind that. He just loaded them up into his truck and took them back to his home to shower.
Grandpa Gene had a Ranch near Burnet, TX where we spent many Thanksgivings, hunting for deer. I still have not ever shot a deer, but I have wonderful memories of sitting in the blinds with my family waiting for them to find just the right buck, or hog, to shoot. Grandpa Gene made times fun and interesting. He was very knowledgeable about history and geography. He was a collector of arrowheads, antiques, especially bottles that have turned purple or blue due to their age, and of antlers!! I have several of his old bottles and an arrowhead that he gave me and his wings from his flight days in the military.
My parents are Bill and Jan Louderman. They both attended Grand Saline High School in the 1960s. My mother's parents are Cecil and Fae Eberhart. Grandpa Cecil passed away in 2002 and we just buried Grandma Fae next to him in Lawton, OK in November 2016.
Thank you for all that you are doing,
Heather Louderman Hanna

RE: Duhons
Hi R.J.,
Yes, Hebert spelled the records the way they were written. So either the priest spelled the name as Pichotte or perhaps Hebert misread the handwriting and it was supposed to be Pichoffe. In earlier records, most people couldn't read/write so the spelling depended on the priest or notary writing the record. I've seen in civil records where brothers would sign their surnames with different spellings. Hebert standardized spelling in his books and in Vol 1 of South Louisiana Records (SLR) he used Pichoff but noted "Sometimes: Pichauff, Pichautte, Picheof, Pichof, Pichoffe, Pichos, Pichot"-- there are more variants on the CD.

From the CD here are the records of Israel's parents and grandparents:

PESCHOFF, Mary Emma (Edward & Urma DAIGLE) m. 20 May 1890 John Pierre DUHON (Creole Ch.: v. 1, p. 7)
PESCHOFF, Edward (Marcellin & Ursile LEBLANC) m. 23 May 1890 Urma DAIGLE (Creole Ch.: v. 1, p. 10)

Note the different first name for Edward's father. I see in SLR Vol 1 a record where he is referred to as Joseph Pichoff dit Marcelin. "dit" names are kind of like nicknames.

Even Odelia's maiden name varied, but for different reasons. Odelia's great-grandfather Francois Gallien fils and his youngest brother Joseph (my 2x great grandfather) moved from Louisiana to Texas in the 1840's. Their surname almost immediately morphed to Gallier at this time. All of Francois' children were born before he moved to Texas and they mostly stayed in Louisiana so they kept the Gallien name, while Joseph's children all had the name Gallier.

Thomas Brewster and descendants
My 2Xgreat grandfather was William J. Bruster. I believe him to be Thomas and Martha Brewster's son. I find him living with his mother Martha, in Grayson County, Texas in 1860...he is married to my ancestor Sarah Alice Bean in 1870, and Martha is living with her daughter Louisa Webb in Missouri in 1870.

I wonder if there is a way to tie William to Thomas with better proof than I have. If you have any suggestions, I would be thrilled to hear them.

Thank you so much for the Shelton marker picture. To the right of that tree there is some sort of headstone or marker, but I am unable to read it. Do you recall what was written on that marker? That is really something how the rocks and marker are right on that tree (probably a small tree back then).

Again, thanks so much!
