According to Bennett J. Gautreaux, “Les Gautreaux de la Louisiana”, (Wise Publications@ Sulfur, LA), Amos Joseph Gautreaux was born February 11, 1932 (place not shown) and was the son of Adam Joseph Gautreaux and Lucie Maire Daigle. Adam was born February 12, 1898 in St. James Parish LA and was the son of Onesippe Gautreaux and Adele Lasseigne. Onesippe was born in Lockport, LA on March 28, 1874. Onesippe was the son of August Adam Gautreaux and Leonise Hidalgo. August was born in Thibodaux, LA on October 20, 1844 and was the son of David Ignace Gautreaux and Marie Gertrude Honore. David was born May 04, 1804 place not mentioned and was the son of Jean Guillaume Gautreaux and Francoise Aucoin. Jean was born in Nantes, France on November 07, 1776 and was the son of Joseph Gautreau and Anne Pitre. Joseph was born in 1723 and was the son of Francois Gautreaux and Louise Aucoin. Francois was born in 1678 in Port Royal Canada and was the son of Francois Gautreaux and Marie Sebastienne Brun. Francois was born in 1652 in Port Royal Canada and was the son of Francois Gautreau and Edmee (Aimee) LeJeune. Francois was born Abt 1613 in Martaize, Loudun, Vienne, France.

I suggest you verify all this information yourself. You can check both the Catholic Records of the Disocese of Baton Rouge, the South and also the Southeast Catholic Records at the Bluebonnet Library in Baton Rouge Library. You can also find these same volumes at a number of other libraries in LA possibly at a library in or near Houma.

It is interesting to note that Jean Guillaume was born in Nantes France. This indicates that his parents were probably one of the unfortunate exiles from Canada during the Acadian Exile period where the English forcibly removed the Acadians from their homes and in many cases separated family members from one another. There is a lot written about this time and how as many as 25 % of the people died on the ships as they were expelled from Canada.

Best Regards, Lee.
