    1. [LA-GULF-COAST] "Long Journey Home: The Ancestry of the Bret (Brette), Coco, Drapeau, Goudeau, Gremillon and Tassin Families in France"
    2. Jim & Cathy Sturgell
    3. I’d like to announce the publication of my book entitled "LONG JOURNEY HOME: The Ancestry of the Bret(Brette), Coco, Drapeau, Goudeau, Gremillon and Tassin Families in France.” I hope that it may be of interest to some of you with ties to colonial Louisiana. This book is the culmination of many years of tedious research in the Catholic sacramental records of France. “Long Journey Home” provides a long-awaited addition to many Louisiana, Gulf Coast and colonial Illinois family trees by bringing forth newly discovered, never-before published and fully documented DIRECT lineages of these six families in France. Included in the book is 175 years of the ancestry of Louisiana progenitor, Dominique Coco, in his native Italy (now France). You’ll discover the actual town in which he was baptized, the true spelling of his surname and the real names of his parents as nine generations of his ancestry is unveiled. It also contains eight generations (also spanning about 175 years) of Louis Gremillon’s ancestry beginning with his 1714 baptism in Courcival (Sarthe). You will also learn about the connection between this family and the Normand family of Igé (Orne) in France. The book also reveals the previously unknown parents of early Mobile settlers Louis Bret (Brette) and his wife, Elizabeth Roy, and provides baptismal records of their children – several of whom were married in Mobile as well as their daughter, Perrine Bret, who settled in Pointe Coupee Parish (Louisiana) after marrying Nicolas de la Cour in 1726. The book provides new details about the lineage of Michel Charles Goudeau, 18th century surgeon to the King in the French settlements of Mobile, the Illinois territory and Louisiana, beginning with his 1713 baptism in La Rochelle (Charente-Maritime) and including several new generations in the line of his mother, Marie Anne Dergny. In addition to the discovery of multiple generations of the Antoine Drapeau and Joseph Tassin families, this book also contains fascinating details uncovered about the ‘occupation’ of our direct Tassin ancestor - Marie Le Roy – and how this occupation may have played a role in her death as well as the death of several of her young children. Each chapter in the 174-page book begins with the Louisiana progenitor of one of these families and contains copies of the sacramental records used to establish lineage. The book is self-published. If you’re interested in ordering the book, please see my website: If you have have any questions, please email me at: [email protected] Facebook Page: Also, if you know any one who may be interested, I’d appreciate it if you’d pass this on. Thanks so much...... Cathy

From: Shelia Salomone [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Friday, August 31, 2012 12:30 AM To: [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; '[email protected]'; '[email protected]' Subject: Looking for: Jean/John MAURICE/MORRIS & Francoise/Frances SEYMOUR/SEMOUR/SYMOURE/LEMOUR I have a serious brick wall that has been with me and several family members over 40+ years now! I am so frustrated that I hope someone can give me information to help put even a dent in that impenetrable wall! Looking for: Jean/John MAURICE/MORRIS & Francoise/Frances SEYMOUR/SEMOUR/SYMOURE/LEMOUR It was originally Jean MAURICE (some say Jean Baptiste) He was married to Francoise/Frances SEYMOUR/SEMOUR/LEMOUR/SYMOURE. They had a son who was my gg grandfather Jean MAURICE who became John MORRIS. John MORRIS II lived in Lafourche Parish throughout the years 1880 - 1939. He was married to Pauline Noeida NAQUIN and they had 8 living children. I cannot find the birth of John MORRIS II but have the following mentions: 1880 thru 1930 census had his birth years as (c1856),(c1854), (c1857), (c1857), and (c1864). He died 9 March 1939 and the various records there show birthdates as follows: LA Deaths Index (c1857), (c1856), and his death certificate states 21 June 1856 (this information was given by his grandson). John MORRIS II parents were mentioned 3 times: First in South LA Records: 1876-1880 Author: Rev. Donald J. Hebert MORRIS, John (Jean & Francoise SEMOUR) m. 2 Dec. 1878 Pauline NAQUIN (Thib. Ct. Hse. : Mar. v. 21, # 175) ---------- MAURICE, Jean (Jean & Francoise LEMOUR) m. 2 Dec 1878 Pauline NAQUIN (Thib Ch.: v.9, p.123) Death Certificate: Birth: 21 June 1856 Birth Place: Lake Charles, LA. Father: John MORRIS born in France Mother: Frances SEYMOURE born in England Informant: John B. TOUPS SR (This was his Grandson) Death: Carcinoma of Larynx metises) I don't know how much John MORRIS II's grandson knew when he gave this information but it is all I have to go by. Every census I found for their son Jean/John MAURICE/MORRIS stated that he was born in LA and his parents were also but I don't know how reliable that is either. I can't find their son with them in any census. Nor can I find this couple mentioned anywhere. Their son Jean II was found from 1880-1930 when he was married and no longer living with his parents. My family said he wanted nothing to do with his parents and would not speak about his family! Shelia Kraemer Salomone

    3. I have been stuck on my g g grandmother's parents for some time now. If anyone could help me with info or even the LA progenitors of these names, I would appreciate it. Jean "John" MAURICE/MORRIS/MORICE (father) & Frances SEYMOUR/LEMOUR (mother) father possibly from France and both living in LA. This is their son (my g g grandparents) Jean "John" MAURICE/MORRIS/MORICE (b. c1856; LA.) (d. 09 Mar 1939; LA.) m. 02 Dec 1878; Thibodeaux, LA. Pauline Naoma NAQUIN (b. 12 Mar 1861; Thibodeaux, LA.) (d. 07 Sep 1932; St. James Parish, LA.) This is their daughter (my g grandparents) Eve Leontia Ursule MAURICE/MORRIS/MORICE ( b. 21 Feb 1880 ; Choupic, LA.) (d. 09 Feb 1941; Thibodeaux, LA.) m. 21 Jan 1898 Chackbay, LA. Louis Marcelien KRAEMER (b. 27 Jan 1877; Vacherie, LA.) (d. 19 Jan 1962; Thibodeaux, LA.) The MAURICE/MORRIS/MORICE family lineage is where I seem to be at a standstill.

    1. [LA-GULF-COAST] DANIEL H. ROWE M.D. Obituary [was raised for a time by his grandmother, in Pascagoula]
    2. patcreel
    3. Daniel H. Rowe, M.D. F.A.C.S., 93, one of this area's most prominent and respected physicians-surgeons, passed away on Sunday, April 22, 2012. Dr. Rowe was predeceased by his wife, Margaret. He is survived by his sons, John (Kay), David, and Terrence (Judy) all of West Palm Beach, and Donald of Ft. Lauderdale. He is also survived by his step-children, Kelly Woodward, Patrick (Suzanne) Woodward, and John (Jennifer) Woodward. Dr. Rowe was born in the French Quarters of New Orleans, LA on February 28, 1919. He was the only child of Jacob Henry Rowe and Marion Newton Rowe, and was raised for a time by his grandmother, in Pascagoula, MS. During high school he worked for Joseph Haspel of Haspel Suit fame who tried to get him to work for him, instead of following his dream of being a Doctor. Dr. Rowe attended Tulane University on a boxing scholarship and graduated with a BA in History in 1939. He worked for the telephone company for a short time in New Orleans. Dr. Rowe later attended LSU, earning a BS degree in Chemistry in 1942 while also attending LSU Medical School. He received his degree from LSU Medical School in 1943. Upon completion of his internship at Charity Hospital in New Orleans in 1944, he was immediately called into service for World War II. Dr. Rowe served as a battalion medical officer-surgeon at an aid station in the Philippines. He was preparing to be part of the invasion of Japan when the war ended. Once the war ended, he treated recently released POW's from Japan. After World War II, he became the Health Director for Desoto, Hardee and Charlotte Counties while living in Arcadia, FL. From 1948-1951, Dr. Rowe completed his residency and served as Chief Resident of OB-GYN at Boston City Hospital. He also instructed at Tufts University and Boston University, while living in Boston and studied Pathology at Harvard Medical School. At the outbreak of the Korean War, he joined the United States Air Force and served at the old Orlando Air Force Base from 1951-1954. Dr. Rowe instructed at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology for a brief time, before completing his tour. Upon becoming Board Certified in OB-GYN, Dr. Rowe started his OB-GYN practice in West Palm Beach. He was also the medical consultant for the former Palm Beach Air Force Base, formerly known as Morrison Field at West Palm Beach, where he delivered numerous babies. Dr Rowe's first office was a room in Dr. Cecil Peek's office that is now the site of Trump Plaza on Flagler Drive. He kept a small cage of rabbits in the open field just north of the building for pregnancy testing. On September 1, 1954 Dr. Rowe moved into the Citizens Building in downtown West Palm Beach. In the late 1950's he brought the late Jack Fealy, M.D. to West Palm Beach to join his practice. Dr. Rowe would later build one of the first medical offices on Flagler Drive. In 1966, he brought the late I. David Bono, M.D. into his practice and later Harvey Hathaway, M.D. They maintained offices in Palm Beach Gardens, Lake Worth and West Palm Beach, and he served on the staffs of Palm Beach Gardens, St. Mary's, Good Samaritan, JFK and Doctors Hospitals. He also delivered many babies at the old Pine Ridge Hospital in West Palm Beach. Dr. Rowe was a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the American College of OB-GYN, and numerous other medical societies. After 38 years of practice, he retired in 1993 and accepted a position of Ombudsman for the State of Florida to the nursing homes in Palm Beach County. He also became the Medical Director for Palm Beach Research from 1995 until just before his passing. At Palm Beach Research Dr. Rowe continued to use his training and experience in the research of new medical procedures and medications. The exact number of babies Dr. Rowe delivered over his career will never be known, but he delivered thousands of babies including close to 6,000 in Palm Beach County alone. Dr. Rowe always had a strong affection for his patients and staff. He provided the same quality of care for all his patients whether they were the wives of the most powerful politicians and industrialists or wives of everyday working people. Dr. Rowe was a member of The Everglades Club and the Palm Beach Yacht Club at the time of his passing. Dr. Rowe's sons extend their sincere gratitude to all the Doctors and staffs who provided for him in his final days. We particularly thank Dr. Bill Simons for his care and dedication and Mr. Jean Lundy, who was his caregiver during his last days. We also express our appreciation to Sandy, Connie, and Ric of Horizon Nursing and Chrissie, Latoya and Mary Jane from First Choice Nursing. The family will receive friends during visitation on Thursday, April 26, from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM at QUATTLEBAUM FUNERAL HOME, 1201 South Olive Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL 33401.

    3. COPIED Eugene Allen Former White House Butler who served 8 presidents WASHINGTON, DC (AP) - Eugene Allen, a White House butler who served presidents from Harry Truman through Ronald Reagan, has died. He was 90. Allen died of renal failure Wednesday at a hospital in Takoma Park, Md., The Washington Post reported Friday. Allen, who was black, started at the White House in 1952, when racial segregation prohibited him from using public restrooms in his native state of Virginia. When he left the White House in 1986 after 34 years, he had witnessed not only defining moments in the country's history, but also in America's civil rights movement. And on Jan. 20, 2009, he watched Barack Obama being sworn in as the nation's first black president. "I never would have believed it," Allen told the Post from his seat at the inauguration. "In the 1940s and 1950s, there were so many things in America you just couldn't do. You wouldn't even dream that you could dream of a moment like this." Allen began washing dishes and stocking cabinets at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. before rising to maitre d' during Reagan's presidency. He crossed paths with entertainers including Sammy Davis Jr., Duke Ellington and Elvis Presley. He met Martin Luther King Jr., traveled to Romania with President Richard Nixon, and had a seat at the table as a guest at one of Reagan's state dinners. Although first lady Jacqueline Kennedy invited him to President John F. Kennedy's funeral, Allen volunteered to stay at the White House to help with the meal after the service. She gave him one of the president's ties, which Allen framed. Born July 14, 1919, in Scottsville, Va., Allen shared the same birthday as President Gerald Ford and joined in Ford's birthday parties at the White House. Allen lived in Washington. His wife of 65 years, Helene, died in 2008. He is survived by his son Charles, five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- July 14, 1919 - March 31, 2010
