    1. [LA-FRENCH-GERMAN] John Campbell, 4th son of Neil Campbell, Tacksman of Sunipol; wife Annette Sophia BREARD; dau of Alexander BREARD
    2. Andrew via
    3. Hello all, To introduce my no. 1 “MOST WANTED” subject, I quote a family death notice posted in Jan 1846: “At Monroe, Louisiana, lately, JOHN CAMPBELL Esq. merchant there, fourth son of Neil Campbell, Esq. late of Sunipole, Argyleshire.” John CAMPBELL was bapt. at Sunipol, Isle of Mull on 14 Mar 1803. Based on our family research, this John Campbell most likely married Annette Sophia BREARD in 1835 at Ouachita Parish, Louisiana and had two daughters, Paulina Mary Colina CAMPBELL (married Isaac T. BASS, subsequently deceased, and then married George Washington MCFEE) and Louisa A CAMPBELL (married William Henry SALSBURY). Based on information in trees I’ve seen out there; there are living descendants of both, most focussed around the Louisiana state of the US. Annette Sophie BREARD was dau. to Jean-Louis Alexandre "Alexander" BREARD, born 8 Jun 1762 at Rochfort, France and her mother was Charlotte RACINE, born 29 Nov 1781, Neuf Chatel, Switzerland. Some names associated with Paulina’s family by blood or marriage are: MCFEE / Clifton Ellis BYRD / Gen. Joseph Alsop REDDING / NADLER / LEE / Maj. Frank Cayce LEE / ALLEN / BARRINGER / JONES. Names associated with Louisa CAMPBELL are: William Henry SALSBURY / Floyd Lazarre SALSBURY / HAMILTON / WHEELIS / CROWELL / BARKETT / FULLER. In one tree, apparently based on family papers in the owner’s possession, I see the full connection to this John CAMPBELL, and his parents are correctly identified, as his brother, Donald Sr and his family. Most other members of this family went to Australia from 1820, and to New Zealand. So, this is a call to anyone who recognizes or is researching these families to come forward. I would particularly like to prove up the relationship between John CAMPBELL and Annette Sophie BREARD. I do have a copy of their marriage certificate, but unfortunately, the information is not adequate to identify John CAMPBELL’s origins. Thank you for your help. Andrew Campbell (an Australian living in Paris, France)

    3. Hi: I am looking to breakdown a brickwall of years now. Peter Keizel/Keezel b. 1808 in Germany married Catherine ?? . They married before 1838. They had 3 children: Catherine b. 1838 in Germany Magdlena b. 1843 in Louisiana, USA Jacob b. 1847 in Mississippi, USA I would love to find out when and where they entered America at. I was able to locate them in the 1850 Harrison County Mississippi Census under the surname "Kleissel". Then I have not been able to locate them in any other census. In 1863, I found Magdlena marrying Alexander Henry Johnston (A.H. Johnston) in New Orleans, LA. I found Jacob Kiezel living with the "White" family in the 1880 census. Then dying in New Orleans in 1896. The remaining years for this family has been a mystery. I am wondering if anyone else is researching this family or can assist me with recommendations on researching this family. Thanks!

    1. Re: [LA-FRENCH-GERMAN] Fw: Chauvin brothers of New Orleans
    2. Stanley LeBlanc
    3. The Chauvin brothers were very prominent in New Orleans under the French Rule. Chauvin de la Freniere was the Attorney General. Unfortunately, he became one of the leaders of the group who rebelled against the First Spanish Governor Ulloa during the New Orleans Rebellion of 1768. He along with several others were sentenced to death by General O'Reilly on Oct. 24, 1769 and executed by firing squad the following day. The history of the New Orleans Rebellion of 1768 is contained in the book Denis-Nicolas Foucault and the New Orleans Rebellion of 1768 by Carl A. Brasseaux.

Man......... this is neat... DP Short film made in the swamp country of South Louisiana in 1949. Shows Cajun craftsman making a pirogue the "old way". Hewn out of a Cyprus log by hand. No power tools. Probably the last pirogue made this way. Note the serving of Cajun coffee in demitasse' cups with tiny spoons. It's a tradition down here that still endures. If you haven't ever had it look out. Made in ole time "drip pots". Most of it is sweetened in the pot. It's thick as motor oil and super sweet. **The areas along the bayou and the people looked much the same when I started working the oil patch down here in 1957. A lot of the time I had to have an interpreter with me so I could communicate with the guys I worked with in the oil field. Just about everybody was Cajun French. A lot of the older guys couldn't (or wouldn't) speak English. One fellow I became great friends with always claimed he couldn't read or write. So I always did his paperwork and reports for him. But..... he would read the newspaper every morning while I did his reports. These guys were great workers. Step back in time. Check out the video below; ___________________________________ http://www.folkstreams.net/film,188 Nice vintage film pertaining to the old art of carving out the Cajun pirogue.
