I've been trying to find information on an ancestor, William Martin White, born about 1837 in Louisiana. There is a William White, born 1836, who in the 1850 census was living in the household of Manuel Moreno of East Baton Rouge parish. What is the connection?
Don Manuel Moreno, born ca. 1809 in Spain, was the parish clerk and auctioneer for East Baton Rouge parish. A later residence of his, the Rodriguez House, built in 1857, is a historic Baton Rouge building. In the 1850 census, his household consisted of himself, Ramona Moreno (b. 1794 LA), Vincenta Lodrigues (b. 1795 LA), Josephine Lodrigues (b. 1810 LA), John Lodrigues (b. 1827 LA), Frances Lodrigues (b. 1827 PA), Eliza Yates (b. 1832 PA), Helen Lodrigues (b. 1829 LA), and William White (b. 1836 LA). I am not sure what, if any, relation any of these people had to each other.
