In Response To: Re: Meuillon / Cheval ()
Sorry, I've come to the end of the road. I have no leads on Marianne or Angelique beyond what I have already stated. Where to go from here is unknown. One problem is that although there is an enormous quantity of records for louisiana, the existing records are by no means complete. The records are particularly "gappy" is the French period. If I were to make wild guesses about where to go next, I would suggest getting copies of the freedom papers for Marianne and the purchase records for Angelique and see if they reference any prior owner or parent. Beyond that, you may be at the proverbial wall. Sorry. Josine is unknown to me. Perhaps Mr Arceneaux can give you some leads on her. Good luck with the journey.
