Re: Found another African ancestor

Hi, I am the wife of Frank Freeman Sr., son of Cecelia Rideaux, deceased. Cecelia, my mother-in-law, her father was John Batiste Rideaux. All of this info has been helpful to me. On a HISTORY page of a reunion schedule it says Marie Florentine Thierry, daughter of Alexander Thierry and Louis Clemence Compager and Jean Batiste Rideau, son of Jean Batiste Rideau and Marguerite Rideau, Were Lawfully married on 28th day of February, 1870, this appears in the Marriage Register of the St. Landry Catholic Church.

I also found some of my husbands cousins on Ancestry.com and we went to meet them a few weeks ago. We plan to see them again soon. They only live about 25 minutes away from us and they know everybody. They were involved in setting up both the 1984 and the 1986 Rideaux Reunions. Great food and fun, we learned a lot.

Thanks to you all. I hope I can help some of you.
