Re: Chevaliers of Rapides Parish

Tommy,
I was just on the familysearch.org website and I did a search for Marshall Chevalier. According to the information given there, Marshall, b. 13 Oct 1887, in Forest Hill, LA, was the son of Joseph Chapman Chevalier and Sarah Frances Butter. Have you seen this information? Once I realized that Marshall's father was Joseph Chapman Chevalier, I knew I had a group sheet for this family! Joseph Chapman Chevalier, b. 6 Jun 1857, m. 21 Dec 1876, d. 25 Dec 1928, was the son of William (or Willis) Stephen Chevalier and Harriet Louise Merchant. William Stephen Chevalier was the brother of Joseph Chevalier, my greatgreatgreatgrandfather. I believe, as other researchers do, that their parents were Joseph Chevalier Poiret, Jr. and Rosalie LaPrairie. We're having a tough time finding documentation however.
Joseph Chapman Chevalier and Sarah Frances Butter had the following children: Susan Harriet, b. 4 Oct 1877; William Henry, b. 14 Nov 1881; Alma Pearl, b. 28 Sep 1883; Reginal Roy, b. 22 Feb 1885;
Joseph M., b. 13 Oct 1887; Marshall Robert, b. 13 Oct 1887; Philip Luke, b. 16 Apr 1890; Foster Oneal, b. 1 Oct 1892; and Carrie Elizabeth, b. 3 Jun 1895.
Was your grandfather a TWIN?
I hope I have been of some help today! Let me know if you need any blanks filled in, and I'll try. I have a Xerox picture of Joseph Chapman Chevalier. It's not the best, but if you would like a copy, let me know your mailing address.



Carol D.
