Dear Dee-Anna,

My ancestor, Francois LeDoux, was b. 22 October 1755 in Pointe Coupee Parish, LA. Francois was the s/o Pierre LeDoux, b. Abt. 1713 in Boucherville, Canada and Cecile Rondot.

Francois m. 21 December 1776 in Natchitoches Parish, LA Marguerite Rougeau. Francois and Marguerite emigranted to St. Landry Parish, LA. Pierre LeDoux and Cecile Rondot had another son, Jean Pierre LeDoux b. 23 June 1773. Jean Pierre and his descendants remained mostly in the Pointe Coupee area.

Pierre LeDoux was the son of Gabriel Louis LeDoux and Marie Marguerite Monin. Pierre was born in Boucherville, Canada.

Gabriel Louis LeDoux b. 4 Dec. 1686 was the son of Louis LeDoux and Marie Nicole Valiquet. Louis was b. in France, d. in Quebec, Canada.

I do not have your ancestor Joseph A. LeDoux in my database, however, if he was born in any of the locations listed above, you may find your ancestor in a book by LaVerne Thomas, III "LeDoux: A Pioneer Franco-American Family". I do not have a copy of the book but your library may have one. If your library does not have a copy of the book, your library should have a program that lists where the book can be found and if it is available through interlibrary loan.

Avec mes meilleurs sentiments,
(with my very best wishes)
