I dont know if there is a connection, but the name Beaujeaux is pronounced Bo-Jay, with the last part sounding like the French "Je" if you are familiar with that.
My mother was a Beaujeaux ...her ancestor, gggrandfather Francois, supposedly came to America in about 1834 from Alsace-Lorraine, France. He and at least one brother entered the US thru Galveston, Tx. I believe they were Huguenots, Protestants who were being persecuted by the Catholics in France. Anyway, Francois settled in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana where he was a cattle ranchers and butcher.
Whether or not any of his siblings made their way to Arkansas is unknown.So, it may be stretching a bit to make a connection here, but who knows? I have been doing genealogy for about 20 years and am always amazed at how names can changed over the centuries.
I will be happy to share anything I have to help you.
