Re: WILTZ Hypolite Saint Martinsville LA
In Response To: WILTZ Hypolite Saint Martinsville LA ()
I have relatives (St. Martin) that married into the Wiltz families.
Alexandre Wiltz m. Agnes Hypolite (my gg-aunt)
Francois Wiltz m. Marie Mathieu
I also have notes on a few other Wiltz families:
There is a succession for an Alexandre Wiltz in St. Martinville (#1869, 1865). Not sure WHICH Alexandre this was, since the name was pretty popular with the Wiltz families.
However, I believe this Hypolite was the brother of the Alexandre that married Emelia Theriot.
I have more fragments of information.
I would suggest you see if you can get a copy of "Southwest Louisiana Records" by Rev. D. J. Hebert at your local library.
Death records are also helpful. You can also see if there are "Free" Death records online for your Wiltz line.
