hermogene Savoie and Francoise Morale

Looking for any info on the couple Hermogean Savoi and his wife, Francoise
Morale of Carencro. Francoise Morale was a free person of color. I think
Hermogean might have been born in slavery, not sure.

Two of their known children were Joseph and Frank Savoie of Carencro. This
family married in Peleteir and Arceneaux. I believe that Hermogean was dead by
1900 because his widow is living with one of her children. I also found a land
deed that involved transations between Angelique Sam(Aunt of my gg grandfather,
Aristide), Francoise Morale, and a couple of Savoies. I think that Hermogene
might of had a succession.Any info or clues would be helpful. Hermogene Savoies
shows up in the 1880 census in Carencro living next to Catherine Pierre, who was
referred to as the daugther of my gggg grandfather, Louis Sam, in a Civil War
Pension.
