hi ya doin. I'm a black creole decendent of the Foy family. I'm the grand daughter of Daniel B. Foy, whom father was Rene Foy they lived near the french qtrs area and in the 7th ward. We're black creole. We come in various shades of complexions, huh I knowits due to the antebellum time mixing. my grand father was a carpenter by trade also some of his brothers and uncles before him.he died 2005 , august 2 right before katrina. to decribe him in word he was a fair skinned black creole grey eyed cold black haired man. i always wondered how his line of family members came about. It definitly explain why I myself look unique. edith are you in relation. I kinda had a feelin my grandfarther had to be the slave , because my grandfather jeans are to strong. why are u looking. my grand father and his brothers attended holy reedemer school in new orleans. his sister joined the holy family sisterhood she was a nun., she died in january 2005. her name was sister Christopher Foy.
