Thomas Avant

Since my last posting, I received an email regarding my ggrandmother Marie Zilia Linscombe's marriage to John Hanks that said she was the widow of Thomas Avant. Also have been told that Thomas could possibly be the brother of Ben Avant from the Rayne area of Louisiana. Also, they may have had a sister named Sarah. I do know that Ben was married to Melanie (have seen this spelled several ways) Hoffpauir, then Leah Bertrand after Melanie's death. Found land records of a Thomas Avant in Acadia parish. Ben also owned land in that general area. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
