Savoie(Savoy), Arceneaux, Sam, and Morale(Morales)

Does anyone know about these particular individuals

1.Francoise Morales and husband Hermogene Savoi/Savoy

2. Frank Savoie, Joseph Savoie

3. Elisabeth Savoie and her husband Paul Arceneaux

These individuals sold a part of their inheritance coming from the estate of
Hermogene Savois to Elisabeth Sam alias Marie Angelique Sam, the widow of Jean
Baptiste Jean Louis, free man of color, in Lafayette in 1901. Angelique was the
aunt of my gg grandfather, Aristide Sam.

I dont know the parentage of Hermogene Savoi, but there was association between
this family and the Leblanc and Sams. Curiously in the 1860 census of Lafayette
Parish, Their is a free mulatto woman named Marie Savoy, age 60,seamstress,
enumerated next door to my ggg grandparents, Jean Pierre Louis Sam & Euphemie
Rideau. Any info about these particular families will be very helpful.
