Information on Bello/Bontemps mother of Homer Guillory of Avoyelles

I am looking for information on the mother of Homer Guillory of Avoyelles Parish.

Listed as Elizabeth Bello in 1900 Census:
Homer Guillory
Mother Elizabeth Bello/Bontemps
(Listed on his death certificate as Elizabeth Bontemps)
She is the mother of:
Phildilis/Fidelis Guillory 1849
Homer Guillory 1852 1921
Don Louis Guillory 1858
Antoine Bello 1861
Ozeme Fontenot 1863 1937
Octavie Bontempas 1872

She is listed in the 1870 Census in Avoyelles, living next to Phidilis Guillory m. Marie Louise Bontemps
Elizabeth Bellan 36
Homer Bellan 18
Don Louis Bellan 12
Antoine Bellan 9
Ozeme Bellan 3

She is listed in the 1880 Census as a widow
Elizabeth Bontempas 44
Homer Bontempas 25
Antoine Bontempas 17
Oseme Bontempas 13
Octavie Bontempas 8

She is listed in the 1900 Census in the household of Homer Guillory (bad translisteration on census records) (m. Eliska Magloire). She is next to Ozeme Fontenot (through whom I am descended).
Homer Gulton 34
Eliska Gulton 30
Erylica Gulton 17
Celisca Gulton 14
Prudent Gulton 2
Exavier Longo 22
Elizabeth Bello

I believe that she is also listed on the 1860 Census in St.Landry as Isabel (Spanish form of Elizabeth) Bello in the household of Jean Batiste LeBleu or this might have been someone else taking care of her children:
Jean B Lebleu 43
Isabel Bello 28
Fidenis Gillory 1
Homer Gillory 9
Louis Gillory 3
Leon Lebleu 2/12

She may also be listed in the 1850 Census in the household of Don Louis Donat:
Don Louis Conat 64
Isabelle Conat 19
Conat 0

There is a Don Louis Bello from St. Landry who had lands in Avoyelles in the 1840s and 1850s. There are at least 6 free people of color in household; I found the marriage record for the marriage in 1841 of Susanne FWC d. of Don Louis Bello who married Evariste Guillory FMC s. of Evarsite Guillory of St. Landry.
It is difficult to make the connections without having the church records in Avoyelles or Opelousas. I am hoping someone may have gone through this route already.
