My Aldrich relatives were from northern East Baton Rouge Parish. I have a book called "The Plains and the People" by Virginia Labell Jennings (Pelican Publishing Company, New Orleans, 1962.) It is subtitled "A History of Upper East Baton Rouge Parish". My great Grandmother, Andelusia Lee Aldrich was a governess to a rich Plantation family in nearby Mississippi. While the parents were away, a group of Yankee Soldiers raided the Plantation, Lucia and the two children (a boy and his older sister)hid in a upper floor bedroom. One of the raiders came into the room and the little boy whimpered. The raider pulled him out from his hiding place and then proceeded to bash the child's brains out on a bedpost. Lucia and the little girl saw the whole murder from their hiding place, the little girl's name was Velma, many years later after Lucia married William Henry Stroube, she named a child after the little girl, later another of her daughters, Charlotte Virginia Stroube named my mother the same, Velma Stroube (Prewett_ Dulaney. The Stroube's and Aldrich's lived north of Baton Rouge near Zachary, Louisiana. Lucia's father, William Henry Aldrich, came from Missouri.
