Back to Surnames or Researchers
I am doing research on the BROWN (mother's family) and ANGELLE (father's
family)surnames. I've gone back to David BROWN (who's my gg-grandfather).
I'm not sure of his birthdate or who he married. His son, Abraham BROWN
(b 1884 - d 1974 in Opelousas), married Mattie MILBURN. My grandfather,
Edward BROWN, was their first kid (b 1910 - present). Edward married Thelma
WASHINGTON. To my knowledge, all were from St. Landry parish (From the
Opelousas, Washington [Bayou Teche] area). I've gotten as far as Martin
ANGELLE (who's my gg-grandfather). I'm not sure of his birthdate or who
he married. His son, Vincent ANGELLE or Deckre ANGELLE as it is on the
census records, was the father of Allen ANGELLE, my grandfather, who married
Gertrude STELLY. I think all or some of the ANGELLE's were from St. Martin
parish. I would really love to get copies of David BROWN and Martin ANGELLE's
birth certificate. If you happen to come across anything that I could use,
please email me the cost to have the paper copies sent to my home address:
Paula Angelle 6914 Creek Village Dr. Katy, Texas 77449

About a year ago, I visited a Catholic Church in Opelousas in an effort
to obtain a birth record for Catherine FRUGE who was baptised there. I
was told the lady in charge of those records was sick and they would not
or could not go into the records because of this. Can anyone tell me which
Church I was at and what is the status of the availability of these records
at this time. The information was listed in Rev. Heberts books, Vol 1,
Page 327 She was born March 27, 1804.
My grandmothers name was Beatrice LAMBREMONT. Her fathers name was Octave
LAMBREMONT. They lived in Washington La. Looking for any information about
Octave, birthplace, date of death, where buried. Thanks Mitchell Templet
of Baton Rouge.
Seeking information about James W. Jacob and family who lived near Melville

Beatrice LAMBREMONT was my grandmother; looking for any information.
Looking for information on: LEWIS, Willam Dewees Born 19 Feb 1876 Opelousas,
LA married Elizabeth TURNER 3 March 1900. William was assassinated for

SACKETT - Reuben T. 1821 LA -1864 New Orleans, LA md ca 1847 Rapides Par.,
LA to Rhoda LEMOINE 1833 LA -1865 TX. They had 5 known daughters, all at
home on 1860 Winn Par., LA U.S. Census: 1) Martha Ann 1848 TX -1912 LA

1890 Thomas CUSTIS 1858-1924; 5) Lou 1860-? md ca 1876 Jackson "Jack" THOMPSON
1856-? Why does Reuben and oldest child not appear on the 1850 census of
LA or TX ? Would think that Rhoda would be a native of Avoyelles Parish,
but she does not appear in Baptism Books of St. Paul's Catholic Church.
There were other French families in this area around what is now Montgomery
and Verda. Were they outcasts from the Avoyelles groups ? or Had they received
land grants in that area ? Who was Rhoda visiting in TX at the time of
her death ? The Grant article stated she was visiting "relatives". Is there
a U.S. Tract Book in the courthouse at Opelousas that would show the coordinates
(Twp./Sec./Rng.) of where this family resided ? Was Reuben the son of Reuben
T. or David F. SACKETT ? An article on the CHELETTE family appearing in
two issues of the now defunct Grant Diggins' periodical (Grant Parish Genealogical
Society) states that Reuben is the son of Reuben and a Catahoula and Rapides
Parish civil suits in Probate Court show these persons receiving ownership
of propery claimed by the older Reuben T. in 1811, but was bought at Sheriff's
Sale in 1829 by David F. SACKETT, so that poses a possibility it could
be either one of these men. Were Reuben and David brothers ? Father and
Son ? Reuben and David both acquired lands in St. Landry Parish. Reuben
on Grand Prairie next to Francois HEBERT, which was lost in a civil suit
went to Louis LOUAILLIER in a court-ordered Constable's Sale and David
on Bayou Chicot and some in partnership with Judge George KING adjacent
to Pierre MANUEL. Is there a Sucession on record for Reuben T. SACKETT
in St. Landry Parish ? All responses answered. Thanks
Looking for any relative.

know if he was married several times. He is listed in 1850 census in E.Jefferson

Craddock GOBER according to family history/lore owned a sugar plantation
in Saint Landry Parish. He is last listed on the 1820 U.S. census for Louisiana
and that was the last time. He had four children and a wife Susanna (SIMMONS).
Please send me any and all info concerning Capt William Green ELLERBEE
Co. K Big Cane Rifles 16th La. Infantry Confederate States Of America and

My name is Glen GOBER and I am researching Craddock GOBER, who married
Susanna SIMMONS May 24, 1815 in Amite Co., Mississippi. Sometime after
that they moved to St Landry Parish and took up farming sugar cane or so
goes family lore. One of his children a son Wiiliam Vincent GOBER moved
away but came back. Craddock (Cradick), according to the 1820 census had
two boys and two girls, of which we have accounted for three of the four.
One boy and the two girls but not the other son. I do want to find out
more about his children but even more than the children I want to find
out more about the sugar plantation he supposedly owned. Any assistance
would be appreciated. October 1999 The National Gober Foundation will be
holding its reunion in Shreveport, LA so I'm sure there will be a few visiting
Saint Landry Parish searching for more informaolding its reunion in Shreveport,
LA so I'm sure there will be a few visiting Saint Landry Parish searching
for more information about the elusive Craddock (Cradick)GOBER.
I am interested in locating someone that would be willing (in the business)
of researching my family. The family name is GOBERT - GAUBERT - GOBER-
etc.. My grandfather Aurelian GOBERT was born around 1893 in St. Landry
Parish , Opelousas
