Message Board Post:
I bought a small photo from a magazine entitled "Pharmacist Manages Cardinals". It was taken in 1940, I believe. They won a trophy which is pictured.
"Mr. M. S. Comeaux, manager of the team, is pharmacist and owner of Farmer's Drug Store in Youngsville. With the aid of other merchants in the town, suits and equipment were furnished the team. The boys play a total of fourteen regular and six play-off games during the season. This year they are again among those in the last four."
Unfortunately, the ball players are not identified.
If you have an interest in this picture, please contact me directly.

I'm not sure about other administrators but I don't mind this, but then from
what I've seen you are posting this on all Louisiana boards, not sure how
Rootsweb will be so thrilled about that.
I understand your emotion, don't understand your logic!

Good afternoon to one and all,
My post is admittedly...off topic.
For being off topic...I'll apologize now.
For those wishing to not read......Please.....DELETE.
My reason for posting today is a very startling and sad event
that occurred last Thursday in Alexandria, Rapides Parish, LA.
Most of you are aware, as I am, due to the news media of these
events...but it took about 24 hours for the word to reach me
...here in the Pacific NW that one of my distant cousins...
was one of the innocents...killed in this tragedy.
I don't know the LA family ancestral lines for the GIORDANO, nor
the ASHLEY families. As much as I feel for their tragic losses,
I am not following their family's equally current and sad events.
I also do NOT know the LA lines for John Martin "Marty" THIELS
but I do know...Marty's wife Laurie's family connections...
This family line now spans across most of South Central LA and
has been there...since as early as 1763. We're now everywhere.
For brevity I will summarize with these surnames:
HEBERT, O'BRYAN, PERRY, LANDRY, RICE, MOSS, BOOTH, CAMPBELL
There are many many more old LA family names in Laurie's lines,
both Acadian and non-Acadian, but...I am trying to be brief.
I'm hoping that possibly we can enlist our "Cousin Network"
to show our support for the victims and their families.
Marty THIEL's funeral is planned for 2 pm, Monday, at the
Calvary Baptist Church in Alexandria, Rapides Parish, LA.
More info is available for this at www.hixsonbrothers.com
I am posting today...in the hope that some of our researching
"Cousin Network", who live within a reasonable distance, might
want to attend to support Laurie and their four children in their
time of sorrow.
Those of us, who are much farther away, have to accept that
we cannot stand there in person in support of these families.
However, like this post, we can still show them our support.
Again, I apologize for being off topic.
