I am a French-speaking native of Ville Platte, Evangeline Parish, Louisiana. I have researched many of the families of Southwest Louisiana - primarily those found in the published Catholic Church records of the Diocese of Lafayette.
As far as I know, I don't descend from any of the families you mentioned, although somewhere along the way, I think I have a Hayes connection.
My parents were Adam Morein (1899-1997) abd Alcina LeDoux (1909-2000). I have traced my Morein (Morin) ancestors back to Mathieu Morin b. in Castillon La Batille in France and my LeDoux ancestors back to Louis, b. Abt. 1600, Notre Dame de-la-Couture, Diocese of LeMans, France.
Many of my ancestors were French soldiers sent to Fort Toulouse, AL. In 1763, when France ceded to Great Britian its possessions in the east, including Mobile, Fort Toulouse and Fort Tombdke, a large number of my ancestors chose to resettle in the Opelousas Post and Attakapas (St. Martin) area: Fontenot, Brignac, Lafleur, Doucet, Guillory, Lagrange and Sylvester families.
Birmingham has one of the best southern research libraries in the southeast - some say it is the best! I have been very fortunate in my research. Genealogy is the perfect hobby for me.
