Thanks, Richard! Any & all information is appreciated, believe me. I have a copy of one obituary for Simon, which is what gave rise to my original query. I'll have to try to get that NO Customs House history through inter-library loan -- have had success with that in the past, once i had a title & author.

Yes, that is the reference for Simon's death cert (which i have not yet ordered). Yes, Marie Eugenia Coste was his wife; the reference for her death cert is: Orleans Parish Death Register Index V154 P7. My wife is the 5th in her line to carry some form of the name 'Eugenia'.

I have a copy of one obit for Simon, from another researcher relative. I'll have to put together an order for obits, records etc from the library -- hopefully, they're recovered from the hurricanes by now.

Concerning destroyed records, we're trying to get information about my father-in-law, from the Army. He served in WWII, and then worked for the Army until his death. Unfortunately, there was a fire at the Army Records Center here in St. Louis, back in 1973, and it appears that his records may have been among those destroyed in the fire. So close...

Thanks again.
Ken Thompson
