I need to know in what county New Orleans is in. I have also found that my grandmother, Emma Arthur, was born
March 13, 1869 in New Orleans,LA. She died in Desdemona, TX Prior to the 1900 census of TX. She and her husband, William E Maloy b. Aug 1862, who was originally from Alabama, had the following children. Iva b. March 1887 in Alabama, Bertha b. Aug 1889 also in Alabama, Luther b. June 1890 in TX, Arthur b. June 1892 in TX.
I would like to find a birth record for Emma. How would I do that? I would also like to find out if there is a marriage record for her and William. They were most likely married around 1886. Wasn't it customary for the groom to come to the bride's family home to marry her? Would there have been an obit written up in LA for Emma's death?
Any help or suggestions are deeply appreciated.
