The La Baumes were of noble stock. Joseph de la Baume, Valery's father, was the eldest son of Comte (Count) Joseph Philippe de la Baume by his wife Marie Elizabeth d'Aton of Ste. Marie Parish in Montpellier, France. After serving in the American Revolution, the younger Joseph settled first in Louisiana (where he contracted a short-lived marriage with Ana Marie LeKentric who most likley died during childbirth). They had one daughter from this union. Then he moved to Spanish Texas, where he ultimately married Marie Louise Courterie. By the terms of his will, drafted 21 Dec 1821, Joseph de la Baume bequeathed his "rights of inheritance to the countship and properties in France to his daughter with LeKentric with the understanding that should the laws of France prevent female succession, his [eldest son Joseph was to succeed him." Young Joaeph and his brother Valery migrated into Natchitoches Parish where both married girls from the Campti colony and lived lives of extremely modest means.
