I am specifically looking for infomation regarding my gg grandfather who, according to the New Orleans city directories, may have been named Joachim Boisseau.My
information is inconclusive right now, but I know he lived in New Orleans
between 1832, and probably died there between 1842 and 1846.He had a son
named Eugene Boisseau (mentioned above), and MAY have had other sons named Justine Boisseau, Joseph Boisseau, John Boisseau, and OscarBoisseau, but this is very questionable as they could have been Joachim's brothers, or they may not have been related at all.
Here's what I have so far.Any connections?
Appreciate any help.I do have a few more details if you need them.
