Loutitia Caroline Soileau - Opelousas LA

This is the information that I sent my family.

I am looking for any descendents of any of the children of this family. I am starting my search in Saint Landry Parish.

My email address is RAVEN777@FLASH.NET


I think I have found Loutitia's family (this is the way her name is spelled on her marriage certificate - in
her own handwriting).

Here is why I feel that it may be Loutitia's family.

1) In the file, she is called Louise Caroline Soileau. On her marriage certificate, her name is signed
Loutitia C. Soileau.
2) On the marriage certificate, there are two witnesses named Soileau. One is Gilbert. There is a child
named Gilbert on the attached GEDCOM file.
3) On the application for a marriage certificate, one of the applicants was an R. L. Soileau and the other
was Thomas Levi Harrell. On the marriage certificate itself, one of the two witnesses named Soileau was
an R. L. Soileau. On the attached GEDCOM file, one of the children is a Robert Louis Soileau.
4) The application for marriage and the marriage certificate were initiated in Opelousas, St. Landry,
Louisiana. In the GEDCOM, Robert Louis Soileau was born in St Landry, LA (no city given) and it says
that he was christened in Grand Coteau, St Landry, LA. In the GEDCOM, it says that Louise Caroline
Soileau was born on 14 May 1865 in Opelousas, St. Landry, Louisiana and christened in Opel Ch, St
Landry, LA. On Loutitia C. Soileau Harrell's tombstone, it says that she was born on 5/1/1865. In the
GEDCOM, it says that Gilbert Soileau was born in LA but does not say much of anything else.

If you can't open the file, I will try to break it out here for you:
