Hi again Earline. I work part-time at the genealogy library in Lake Charles and I had time today to do a little checking on the Courmier lines for you.
I found John L. Courmier family in 1870 & 1880 Calcasieu Parish Census. In 1900 John L. is still alive in Calcasieu Parish, but Mary Rena is not there, probably deceased. In 1910-1930, John L. is not there. So... He must have died between 1900 and 1910. I checked the LA state death index, but did not find him. They didn't REQUIRE death records before 1913..... ALSO in 1900 he says he is born May 1844...don't know if this is correct, but..........
OK....I find him listed as being a Confederate Veteran, buried in Toomey Cemetery. We do not have the listings for Toomey Cemetery here at the library. I did check Nibletts Bluff and found some of the children there.....
I checked our obituary file, but didn't find a listing for John L....... If I run across anymore, I will let you know. Later.....Jeanne
