In the 1850 census in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana I found:
A. D. Allen age 28 M Bch. Pilot with a value of Real Estate Owned $ 2000
born in New York
note: I think Bch stands for Branch Pilot.
Mary A. Allen age 17 F born in Louisiana
Louis P. Allen age 1 M born in Louisiana
Hope this helps

If any one finds any info on Arthur or Hortaire Treme from Plaquemines
Parish or New Orleans Parish, La , please, please let me know.
I have been trying for YEARS to find the date and place of death, a
tombstone, obit, death record, etc. for my great grandfather.
What I know:
Name - Hortaire or Arthur Treme
born - July 1847 in Plaquemines Parish
married - Jan 1877 Plaquemines Parish
died - between 1911 and 1921 probably Plaquemines Parish or New Orleans
Buried - ??????????
Any info large or miniscule would be appreciated.
There are no records of his death in the church records or any cemetery
The Parish of Plaquemines did not keep a list of people buried in it's cemeteries because many of the cemeteries began as small family cemeteries, however many of the churches did keep lists of those that were buried in their cemetaries as well as the death notices. Some churches such as St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Port Sulphur had to move their cemetery because it was on the "cutting bank" of the river and they recorded who was moved to where as best their records could determine. I am not aware of any other cemetery that was moved from the waters edge.
Many cemeteries have "disappeared" underwater. The most noted are the old Balize cemetery near Passe a Loutre that disappeared about the time of Betsy and the Lazarette cemetery near the Head of Passes. However with the Bohemia Spillway and the abundance of family cemeteries there were probably dozens of very small cemeteries lost through neglect, subsidance, floods, etc.
Did David Johnston die at the Balize or Pilot Town Bayou in 1852?
Does anyone know if the parish of Plaquemines kept a list of people buried in the cemeteries there today and those which has slid under water? I am looking for burial information on David Johnston died in 1852. Any responses would be greatly appreciated. Also, does anyone know the cemeteries that were in Plaqumines around this time?
