In Response To: Re: African marriages in Southwest Louisiana Recor ()
My father's family seems to have links to the Grand Coteau area. The sir names are Thibodeaux, Guidry, Potier, and David. In Father Hebert's records my great-grandfather's mother is listed as Azeline Bihm,yet his death certificate has Katherine David listed as his mother. Azeline Bihm was the spouse of his dad, Sylvestre Thibodeaux, and was a Caucasian woman. I feel that Hebert's records are not always accurate as in this instance. Since Hebert's records were taken from church documents or ledgers, there may be instances where they were in error also. However, there are very few written records. I plan to contact the church in Grand Coteau to find out if my faternal great-grandparents were baptized there.
