Judging by the years you gave, I assume you are talking about John Demeritt Jr, who married Malora Hoffpauir? A family member has a copy of John (Sr) & Sarah Adam's marriage certificate - 1868 in St. Landry's Parrish. You have the years on John D Jr,1879-1953, which is more than I had. Two relatives say they have found more papers, but they have been out of town, so I will advise when any more info surfaces. John Jr. and Malora married in Acadia Parrish. I have been told that they are burried "across the river from Sulphur Cemetery" in Calcasieu Parrish.
