You are so gracious to do lookups. I'm looking for data on my uncle, Haydel
Joseph Wills and his wife, Adele Lacour. He was born 5/24/1899 in Avoyelles
parish and I've followed him through the 1920 census. By 1930 he must have
been in Lafayette and probably married to Aunt Adele as I can't find a
marriage for them in Avoyelles so I'm guessing they met and married in
Lafayette. Also, I don't know when Aunt Adele died nor do I know where
either was buried. All I have is my mother's (she was his sister) missal
with his funeral card in it. Burial services were rendered by Delhomme
Funeral Home. They lived at 703 St. John for many years--just down the
street from the cathedral. Are they both buried in St. John's cemetery? I
live in VA so I don't get down your way very often.

I have the book, "Cathedral of St John the Evangelist" compiled by Shelby
and Betty Mier. The book contains Cemetery and Burial Records for the
Slave burials at St John Cemetery 1860-1871
I'd be glad to do a lookup for someone.
