Elizabeth Hortense Rodrigue b. @ 1811

  of 76

I am seeking proof that my husband's family actually does tie into the Rodrigue's of Louisiana. His great grandmother was Georgina Marie Autin, who married Jean Louis Daviet. Georgina is the daughter of Oville Zephirin Autin (b. 1834 d. 24 March, 1865/75)and Marie Nazille Luquet[te] (b. 1 July 1837/38 d. 24 March 1875) m. 12 April 1856 in Raceland, Lafourche Parish, Louisiana. I have proof of these facts (except Marie's and Oville's death dates may be confused).
Here is where my problem begins. I have found several genealogies that name Marie Nazille Luquet[te]'s father as George[s] Luquet[te]. Unfortunately, they list her mother as Marie Toups. Marie Toups was indeed the wife of a George Luquet[te]. However, the gentleman that Marie was married to died before 15 March, 1819 when his will was probated. Needless to say, it would be impossible for him to be the father of Marie Nazille Luquet[te].
But, Marie Toups and George Luguet[te] did have a son, George Luguet[te] who married an Elizabeth Hortense Rodrigue (b. @ 1811) on 23 April, 1832 in Thibodaux, Lafourche Parish, Louisiana. I have only been able to find one child listed for them and that is a George Luguet[te]. Did they have other children? Was Marie Nazille one of them? If not, whose child was Marie Nazille's?
Since so many relations seemed to have Marie Nazille Lugut[te] connected to George Luguet[te] and Marie Toups, I just thought grandparents might work. I sure could use some help proving this connection.
By the way, I have come across several places where I have seen the name spelled Rodrique. Is this just a misspelling or someone being unable to read writing or is there another family group out there with a "q" instead of a "g"?
Thanks to anyone who may be able to help me. Sincerely, Robin Butler Daviet
