States: Louisiana: Avoyelles
I'll have to go back through my notes to see what I have...or what I did find, if anything. In recent months I went to Avoyelles and found records of Louis Ricard and Eli Ricard (my great grandfather) purchasing land in the years just after emancipation. I cannot find the records, but hopefully they are simply buried under this mountain of paper. I have tried to prove or disprove Louis (the elder) and Eli as brothers, or some other relatives, but have not done so. I am also interested in the Jacob/Jacques line, principally because the names were interchanged early on, and because my great grandmother used the the name Jacques as her maiden name when she married Eli Ricard. Contact me directly at email@example.com.
