Moses Brothers in Louisiana
Posted by: nikki sanford (ID *****8198) Date: February 24, 2011 at 14:11:56

I'm looking for information on 2 Moses brothers from Avoyelles Louisiana - Sylvester [b. abt 1845] and Jefferson [b. abt 1853]. I found them together in 1870 Avoyelles living in the home of Martin Gremillion.

My last trace of Sylvester is in Avoyelles in 1900 census, where he is married to an Arsen Galland having at least 5 children - Raymond, Louis, Rosetta, Mary and John.

Jefferson Moses married Phenelia V. Cooper in 1875 and settled in Jefferson Parish where they had at least 4 children, - George, Amanda, Joiner and William Bernard.

At some point, William Bernard married Ernestine Morton in 1906 and changed name to Moise sometime between 1907-1910. Some of his descendants are still in Jefferson Parish, mainly in the Metairie area.

I don't know, as this date, anymore info on any other possible siblings or the parents. If anyone has info that could help, it would be greatly appreciated.
