Mary Keating Orleans Parish Louisiana
Posted by: Linda Presher Date: June 13, 2001 at 18:40:22
  of 18874

I am looking for any information about Mary Keating who married Jean Baptiste Lemire. They appeared on the 1850 Orleans Parish census with a daughter named C.(Catherine) who was about 18 months old. I am having trouble finding any records of their marriage in Louisiana. I was wondering if they might have been married in another state. She was from Ireland and he was from Canada. Their daughter was born in Louisiana.
They had several other children and moved to Rockport Texas sometime before the 1870 census. I found them there at that time. Jean died and his wife had to have property probated that he left in Louisiana. Mary and some of her children eventually moved to Galveston. They are listed in the 1890 Galveston City directory. Thank you for your help in advance.
