Desperately seeking info on this surname. Spelling varies greatly. I have an ancestor who was born in either Arkansas or Louisiana about 1815+/-. That's what she said on two separate census records. She married William Walker and they lived in Polk county, Texas. They had several children. One of them died in 1920 and on his death record he listed his mother as Lucinda/Lucretia Papanaugh. I can't find any records in Ark. or La. of
this surname in any variation. Where, oh where, did she come from? And who was her family? There's got to be something out there . . . . I am hoping for a breakthrough. Let me hear from you if you've seen any mention of this French surname. Thanks fellow searchers.
