Book family- Louisiana
Posted by: K Poole (ID *****6313) Date: June 05, 2002 at 15:00:11

I am looking for info on the family of Wesley Book, son of Henry Book and Sarah Eppinette. Wesley married Lillan May Fluitt. They had three daughters, Ida (b. 1890), Louisa Jane (b. 1892), and Desire Emma (b. 1895) Book. Lillian died in 1896. The girls are found on the 1900 Calcasieu Parish Census living with their grandfather, Dr. Samuel B. Fluitt. Dr. Sam later moved back to the Caldwell Parish area. The Fluitt and Book families are from the Caldwell Parish Louisiana area.

Can anyone tell me what happened to Ida, Louisa Jane and Desire Emma Book? Or their father Wesley, after the death of Lillian? Did he ever remarry? Why were the girls living with their grandfather?

Also, Wesley's real name may be Wesley Gaspard. He may have taken his step father's surname.
