Hi, if you any updated information in regards to Henri and Matilda's marriage, please email me.
It is believed that Henri and Matilda Lagasse were married in France because their daughter, Mary ( Marie) was born in France in Sept 1857. This was in a census in New Orleans. I do not have the exact year of the census, but I know I have seen this information. Therefore, I think that they came to New Orleans somewhere between the birth of their first daughter, Marie, and their second child, Paul, who was born on 13th Sept. 1862. Please feel free to contact me. Gracett
