Louis Verlin LeDoux --Lake Charles/Sulphur area of Louisiana

I ran across a historical article in the Lake Charles American Press regarding Louis Verlin LeDoux. He was to be ordained as a priest at the Sacred Heart Church in Lake Charles according to the article that was originally printed Dec 23, 1952. According to the article he was/is black. This article stirred my memory from childhood.

Also, I remember my grandmother telling me about the black LeDoux family in the Sulphur area and my aunt remembers calling a black lady "Grandmaw LeDoux". I think this family ran a cafe. My aunt remembers going to the cafe to visit them.

Our particular clan is considered white and I don't know anyone living in our family that can remember anything more about this black family line or where they trace their roots. So, I am curious as to whether anyone has any knowledge of this or if this line still continues or do they consider themselves Creole/Black/French, etc...

Anyway, I am curious if this is a Creole line that still exists or maybe has ceased or unfortunately, even become Anglo through the years.
