Good morning Constance; Good morning Jason:

Houma Ch.: St. Francis de Sales Cathedral, P. O. Box 4014, Houma, LA 70361. These records begin in 1848.

William Rudolphe Blanchard (Euphrosine - only parent listed)
bt. 5 Apr 1864 at age 3 years (Houma Ch.: v. 3, p. 374)
Source: SOUTH Louisiana Records by Rev. Donald J. Hébert, Volume 4, page 85.

Before he died, Fr. Hébert published 11 Volumes, Lafourche ~ Terrebonne parishes, beginning with the year 1794 and ending with the year 1903. He also published Volume 12 - Supplement Mixed Records 1904-1920. There may be other volumes but these are the ones I own. To see Fr. Hébert's Obit and a list of his publications go to hebertpublications.com

I found one William Jean Blanchard s/o Silvere & Josephine Bergeron b. 13 Dec 1884. (Theriot Ch.: Mar Bk., v. 1, p. 110) Hébert, V. 7, p. 57 (1881-1885)
Theriot Ch.: St. Eloi Catholic Church, Theriot, LA 70397. These records begin in 1875.

What this suggests to me is that when he married, William Jean Blanchard gave his date of birth and parents' names, but I found no marriage record.

Thib. Ch.: St. Joseph's Co-Cathedral, P. O. Box 966, Thibodaux, Louisiana 70301. These records begin in 1803; the records begin with more regularity in 1820.

No children found in Volume 9 (1891-1895)
No children found in Volume 10 (1896-1899)
No children found in Volume 11 (1900-1902)
