Hi cousin. I am not sure how we are related yet, but I believe we are. My great-great-grandfather was Raphael Segura (born 3-4-1794, died 10-9-1891) who came from Seville Spain with his brother Baptiste. He married and had 3 sons
Elai Segura (10-25-1855 to 6-2-1913)
Valerian Segura (No info)
Clovis Joseph Segura (2-21-1865 to 8-1-1944) Clovis was my great-grandfather. He married Noelie Viator (born 12-25-1869 & died 2/1970) My great-grandmother had 2 sister. Her mother was Julie Segura (born 3-7-1844, died 11-6-1906)and her father was Baptists Viator (12-25-1843, died 11-16-1912) Her sisters were Edara Viator Bautte (9-29-1883 to 12/22/1958)who had 7 children, and Cecilia Viator Marres (Born 1867, died 1935). Julie Segura's mother was Julie Derauant married to Frances Bourrigua & she died 8/6/1851 at 40 years of age.
Clovis (my great-grandfather) had 8 children:
Joseph B. Segura (10-30-1890 - July, 1966) was my grandfather. He married Fedora Menard Segura (12-15-1895, died --I have forgotten the date & cannot find it right now but she was 99). She was born in Delcambre, LA and had 2 brothers, 3 sisters, and 4 half brothers. Her mother was Adelia Champagne, father was Aldays Menard (no dates). Her maternal grandfather was Nicholas Champagne.
Clovis & Fedora (my grandparents) had 3 children:
Harris Joseph (b.3-6-1912
Ruby Rita (b.8-8-1917
Paul Percy (b 6-2-1920) my dad
Both my father's siblings have died in the last decade, I cannot find the funeral cards at this moment for dates of death. My father is alive & kicking & full of cajun craziness. All these folks who were born Segura were born on the farm in Segura, LA EXCEPT Rapheal. My family history says he was born in Seville, Spain. I spent as much time as possible as a kid on that farm in Segura. My great-grandmother (noelie) was a pip, I always stayed out of her cane reach. I knew 3 of the 7 sibilings of my grandfather, and, of course my aunt & uncle. I know we have differences, but there is too much alike to be different families. Can you connect the dots? And how are we related?? I don't know where you are located but the family cemetary in Segura lists the dates as I have (I believe). Most of these dates are from our family bible which is currently in the possession of my mother in another state. This is fun, I stumbled upon this but I would love to try and wrestle the truth out of this before my dad passes. He would get a kick out of a single paper with all this info nice & neat.
