Re: ALTEMUS family ~ Plaquemine LA

Hello Thomas,

First I'd like to thank you for responding to my inquiry posted at this site. it has been some time since I've received a response.

As with you, my family has made my lineage a mystery and will not for the life of me provide a reasonable explanation as to secrets they are holding or are not aware of to help me with locating my ancestors. I have given up hope in finding information on this family but with your responding to my post, i am hopeful.

From your response, "I was told I am of Irish, Italian, and PA Dutch=(Altemus) decent With Luterzo, Wheelan, and Schroder. My family has made my past a mystery to me, as far as i have searched I cannot even find myself in searches. I wonder if we are all linked," I am holding on to the hope that we may be linked in some way given Altemus is not a very common name and the fact that there was one prominent Altemus family residing in Iberville/Plaquemine Parish during the time my ancestors resided there.

I have not had much success with locating my family from the Altemus lineage but after receiving your reply, I am hopeful.

I don't know much about where I descend from but the one Altemus family that resided in Iberville came from PA. The family was Caucasian, whereas my family was mulatto (mixed race) and may have been linked in some way. I just don't know how.

There's not much I can provide on the Altemus family with the exception of what I managed to obtain from the census, marriage, and death records of which I would gladly be willing to share.

If you'd like, maybe we can connect via email and share information. Please let me know if this is an option for you and I will provide an email address I can be contacted.

Thank you again for replying to my post. I look forward to hearing from you.
