Martin SAM of New Iberia Parish,LA
Looking for any information on Martin SAM/SEM or his descendents.
He was the son of Adolphe SAM and Philomene Aubry, free blacks of Lafayette Parish, Louisiana. Adolphe was the brother of Jean Pierre SAM(ggggrandfather), Angelique Louis SAM Jean Louis,Casimir SAM,Don Louis Louis SAM, all free blacks who lived in Lafayette and St. Landry Parish areas. Both of their parents were also free, Jean Louis or Louis SAM and Babet MASSE/Elisabeth SENAT/SENET of St. Landry Parish near Opelousas. I found a Martin SAM in the 1900 Louisiana census in New Iberia. I suspect that he is the same person. the age, name, and location matches. Any info or advice will be helpful. Martin also had a sister named Clemence SAM/SEM.
