Re: hymel/raphael family,st james parish,louisiana

THANK YOU! I ALSO HAVE THE NAMES OF THE SPONSORS(GODPARENTS)THEY WERE HOMERE HYMEL AND MAGDELEINE ZULMA TREGRE. I DO KNOW THAT FELECIE(FELECIA) WAS BORN INTO SLAVERY. I DID FIND A FELECIE HYMEL LISTED AS A WHITE FEMALE IN THE 1880 CENSUS. I DID NOT THINK SLAVES WOULD AHVE BEEN INCLUDED ON CENSUS OR LISTED AS WHITE, SO I EXCLUDED HER. I DID TRY TO USE THE D.O.B.'S OF HER CHILDREN TO TRY AND DETERMINE WHEN SHE WAS BORN THIS PROCESS FAILED. NO I HAVEN'T ORDER ANY DOCUMENTS YET. I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I HAVE NAMES CORRECT BEFORE I ORDER THE WRONG INFO. I DID FIND HER IN THE 1910,1920,1930 CENSUS SHE WAS MARRIED BY 1910, ACCORDING TO THE 1910 CENSUS SHE WAS 24, WHICH WOULD PLACE HER BIRTH YR ABOUT 1886, WHICH WOULD BE OFF FROM EVERYTHING I'VE SEEN, EVEN HER HEADSTONE, WHICH HAS NO DATE JUST 1875.
