I believe they might have been Francois POIRET b. 1799 (?mispelled on 1850 federal St Landry census) and Celeste b. 1802. Francois and Celeste had at least six other children: Eulodie b. 1825, Florentine b. 1827, Caroline b.1829, Emma b. 1838, Estelle b. 1842, and Emile b. 1844. Adolphe and Arcilae died, I believe, in one of the yellow fever epidemics between 1870 and 1880 because their daughter, Susan (Sudie) Uraine POIRIER, was listed as an orphan on the 1880 census and living with Huston (Hauston) POIRIER (?son of Francois also) and his wife M. Louisa. Also, a Gerant (Grant)GARCILLE b. 1842 (? brother to Arcilae) is listed on the 1850 census living with a laborer Victor JANEAU and his family next door to Francois(who was a planter).

Sun Sep 7 11:11:55 1997 I am seeking information on the second generation of the ADAM family. My grandmother and her siblings as we know it, begins the fifth generation of the ADAM family. We have marriage records of the third generation but cannot parental information. My genealogy begins with Betsy and Pierre ADAM(s) who arrived in America with their five grandchildren. Their slave ship arrive at the dock on the Bayou LaFourche near the Fruge Bridge. The grandchildren are Francois, Anatasie, Pierre, Carmelite and John Telesmas ADAM. We know that Betsy and Carmelite were sold as a unit to the DesElome Plantation. The others were sold to surrounding plantations. 1. Carmelite ADAM The grandchild Carmelite married William BROWN in the Catholic Church of Arnaudville of St. Landry Parish on September 12, 1877. Her brothers Francois and Pierre were witnesses during the ceremony. 2. John Telesmas ADAM The grandchild John Telesmas, married Eleonore DAVID on February 12, 1881 in the same Catholic church. He and his wife relocated to New Iberia, LA. He signed his name as ADAM on the marriage certificate. This grandchild was my grandmother's grandfather. However, my grandmother stated that she had never met her fraternal grandparents or great-grandparents. 3. Francois ADAM The grandchild Francois married Rose BAKER on December 1, 1880 at the same Catholic church. His brother John Telemas witnessed the ceremony. They lived in Prairie Boss on the Olivier Plantation. This grandchild signed her name as ADAMS instead of ADAM on the marriage certificate. He signed his name as ADAM on the marriage certificate. 4. Anatasie ADAMS The grandchild Anatasie married Paul CHARLES on August 19, 1872 in the Parish of St. Landry. Her brother Francois witnessed the ceremony. She signed her name as ADAMS on the marriage certificate. 5. Pierre ADAM The only information we have on the grandchild Pierre, is that he was the youngest grandson and he was a witness his sister Carmelite's wedding on September 12, 1877. To this date, we do not have any parental information on these grandchild except we know they are siblings. We do not know who the children are of Pierre and Betsy ADAM (Slaves). We do know their history in America (Louisiana) began in the early 1800 and they settled in the Parish of St. Landry. Can you help us with the missing second generation link to our tree?

JOHNSTON, KELLER posted by Michael Keller Email: tmkeller@bellatlantic.net on Tuesday, January 20, 1998

I am looking into records for Willliam Henry KELLER. I think I have found him in the 1870 census living in St Landry. He is listed as single (widowed if right man) and age 35. I have located him in 1880 living in Vernon Parish (Elmswood) with a family which appears to be a possible second marriage as the children's ages are widely separated. Oral history indicates that he was possibly an accountant or bookkeeper for the State of LA (unconfirmed at BR.) There is a possible identification of a Sarah JOHNSTON married to a William H KELLER Oct 17,1842 which would be a good match as he was born in 1824. Thanks for any guidance.

DOUCET, LEBLANC posted by Winston Boudreaux Email: winston@asbank.com on Wednesday, January 21, 1998

Searching for information on my gg grandmother, Marie Melaide LEBLANC, born abt 1848. She married Joseph Julien DOUCET on 10 July 1861 in St. Landry parish. Their children were: Edmond, Joseph Lastie and Josephine who was born in 1866, which is the last date that I can find concerning her. There was a divorce and there is circumstantial evidence that would indicate that possible grounds for this divorce did exist in abt 1865 while Joseph was serving in the Civil war. Some family sources say Marie may have been from Acadia parish, some say her family came from Lafayette parish. I need any clue as to what happened to her after 1866. May help me find who her parents were. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
