I have been working on my family's history since our wedding, Feb 5, 2005. I started
with my husband's family first, because they wanted a more intimate gathering aside
from the wedding. They are Gobar, Charles,Hypolite, Ledet, Berard,Thibodeaux of Parks, St
Martinville, & Breaux Bridge,LA. Anyway I have planned a gathering Labor Day weekend.
If you are part of this family and would like to attend you can contact me for more
information. My family mother/father comes from St Landry Parish, Opelousas, LA. Alfred
Mitchell (son of Noah Mitchell, Jr & Amelia Washington) married Vernell Marie Guidry
(daughter of Louis Guidry, Sr. & Josephine Guidry). Now my mother's father and
mother were both Guidry, one from Lawtell and the other Opelousas, but my
grandmother's mother (Rosa Papillion) was from Eunice, down the road from my
grandfathers people. Could they actually have been kin and don't know...that is my
quest. I want to find out how this came about. I have clicked on to C!
lifton Benoit, Anne Bellows & Paula Angelle with exact info, but have failed to get
responses. Would you guys please help me!!!
