I was wondering if anyone knows of a flood on the Mississippi River in the early 1800's.
The information I have: Family found in city directories in New Orleans in 1822. I found a family story that said the oldest son lost his family in a flood that destroy his house and carrying his children and servants downstream, never to be seen again. The father died in Texas in 1853. The story says he had been in Texas for twenty years. So that puts the story to be around 1822-1833. Does anyone know of such a flood and whether there are records of the flood?
