Bio and Links
Family historian, micropaleontologist, hiker, retired teacher among other things. Thanks to all who posted memorials and photos useful in my family tree, and made memorials of closer family members. I do not "own" my memorials and photos, your non-commercial use for family purposes is fine with me, credit is appreciated in your trees, histories and websites. Prohibited: commercial use unless you have my written permission.

Now working on Strausbaugh family tree, including Ory family in Louisiana. NEED HELP: looking for parents of my ancestor Lucy Ann Elizabeth Strausbaugh, wife of Melchior Sachs. Married 1849 March 16 at Gettysburg at an unknown Reformed Church. Born in or near Gettsyburg, PA about 1829. NOT Lucy Ann the daughter of George Strausbaugh and Elizabeth Bittinger, that Lucy Ann married Joseph Warner and stayed in Pennsylvania instead of moving to Illinois. Anyone knowing her parents names please contact me.

John Thomas Parent
Hi Chris,
I checked the Dioceses of Baton Rouge Catholic Church Records today and this is what I found...
1.Jean Thomas Parent son of Jean Edouard and Rose Cambre was born on 18 Sep. 1821 and baptized on 19 Mar. 1822 in St. Gabriel.

I do not have a death date because the church records that I had access to only went up to the year 1900, so he had to have passed away after 1900.

2.Thomassin of Ascension Parish son of Edouard Parent and Rose Cambre married 11 Dec 1843 a Marie Malvina LeBlanc daughter of Placide and Marcelline Landry in St. Gabriel.

3.Marie Malvina LeBlanc born on 27 Dec 1826 and baptized on 4 Feb 1827 in St. Gabriel.

4.Marie Malvina LeBlanc age 17 wife of Thomassin Parent died 25 Aug 1844 and buried 26 Aug 1844

5.Thomas Thomassin Parent widower of Marie Malvina LeBlanc marries 17 Jul 1848 Virginia Ory widow of Paul Matherene.
I hope this helps you out.

Blood relations
I just stopped by the site to see how things were going with my dads.grave site. I saw.that you had left a message saying rest in peace cousin. Was that a term of endearment or are we blood relatives? Just curious.

Best regards

Strausbaughs headed your way
They should be with family. I'm guessing if you ask the others who hold Strasbaugh memorials, they will transfer to you.
