I have very little info on the Grancois relatives. The only Francois in the Convent/Cental area I knew were Victoria(Laro)Francois Ester who owned a bar on the River Rd.. She was the sister of Harry Francois Sr.She passed way in the early sixties. She fathered an onlyson whose name was Joe(Laro)Ester.He became the proprieter of the bar/lounge.My grandather, Harry Francois Sr. passed away in 1946.My father, Harry Francois Jr, was born in 1914 and passed in November of 1990.There was only one other relative I knew of who was a Francois in that area and all I can remember was that we called her Cousin Put. I have no idea who my grandfathers relatives are.I am extremely interested in putting the pieces of this puzzle together. There are many Francois decendents from my granfather and grandmother. They had 10 children.Their children are Clarence,Charles,Benjamin,Harry Jr,Florence,Lucy,Gustavia,Lillian,Tena Mae and Audrey Francois,all aredeceased.I have extensive information on all of their decendents, many of which reside here in New Orleans and we are all pretty close.Because we all knew we were the only Francois we could directly relate to.Do you know anything about a Harry or his sister Victoria?
