My line of LeDoux can be found in the Diocese of Baton Rouge and also in Chapter XXXI (Jean Jacques Zemais Ledoux) of the "LeDoux" book by LaVerne Thomas.
There is one error in this chapter. Mr. Thomas indicates that the parentage of Jean Jacques was unknown and assumed to be one of three brothers, Zenon, Joseph, or Valarien. Oral history in my family indicates that Jean Jacques father was Valarien. Valarien was the son of Jean Pierre LeDoux (c.1753-1793) and Marguerite Baron, and the grandson of Pierre LeDoux (c.1713-1768) and Cecile Rondot.
Most of the LeDoux line of my family stayed in the Pointe Coupee Parish area until the 1930's when they migrated to California.
