Loved your story about early St. Martinville. I live in Lafayette and lived in St. Martinville when my husband and I first married. I have a grandmother in the Berard family but have not been able to find much about her. She was Bertha Berard... father was Amadee Berard and she died when she was only 19 years old and had four little girls already from two marriages. My mother being one of them. Am presently looking for her grave probably in the Cecilia, La. area. Thanks again. I love hearing stories about the area.
