My fourth great aunt CAMILITE FRANCOIS had changed her surname to MANUEL. In the 1900 U.S. CENSUS ORLEANS PARISH, she was living with a woman for whom she had claimed was her grandmother HARRISH MANUEL who was born November 1825 and her cousin RUBEN JONES who was born March 1879.

My third great grandmother who is CAMILITE'S sister ELISTE JEFFERSON for whom had changed her first name, and her first name by birth is unknown to me and my family, although, I know her surname at birth was obviously FRANCOIS. ELISTE JEFFERSON married a man by the name of RICHARD JEFFERSON in 1887. I don't know if she had married him in PLAQUEMINES PARISH OR ORLEANS PARISH. ELISTE had two children: my second great grandmother PELAGIE DAVIS for whom had changed her first name to CORA LEE or CORA born APRIL 1882 and my third great uncle LAWRENCE "LEONCE" DAVIS born NOVEMBER 1880.

PELAGIE OR CORA had gotten married in 1898 and widowed two years later from what I had gotten on the 1900 U.S. CENSUS ORLEANS PARISH on all of them. She had my great grandmother AURALIA DAVIS in MAY 1899.

If anyone has any inquiries about HARRISH MANUEL, RUBEN JONES, ELISTE JEFFERSON, CORA DAVIS, LAWRENCE DAVIS, AND RICHARD JEFFERSON please contact me via email.
