Elena Thibodeaux Gerard, 1890's Saint Martinsville. Louisiana

About a year ago I happen to run across a the death certificate for my grandfather Charles Gerard. I lost the birth cert. but I remember the parents or I should say my paternal great grandparents. They were Joseph Gerard and Elena Thibodeaux. They both lived in St. Martinsville, Louisiana.

Now that was a year ago-today I decided to surf the internet and I inputted Joseph's name and the search engine brought me to the Thibodeaux site. Which was exciting because my paternal great grandmother was a Thibodeaux. So in my start to trace my ancestory I need to see if any one of you potential relatives has any info on:
Elena Thibodeaux Gerard from St. Martinsville. All the Thibodeaux information I have seen has the ansestors living in the same part of Southwest Louisiana so I know I'm on the right track.

As a kid my father Willie Gerard (Charles' baby boy) told me our family The Gerard's migrated from Canada so did the Thibodeaux's from the responses in the Thibodeaux site. So Thibodeauxs help me out if there is any info on Elena or her marriage to Joseph Gerard please help.
