I am following up on an old post of yours on the Decuir Gen/Forum on Genealogy.com, regarding Mary "sister" Decuir.My Decuir ancestor was Mary Decuir.She was born ca. 1847, parents' names as yet unknown by me.She had a relationship with a Joseph Romero and they had several children.I don't know if they were ever married, or if they were just partners.She may have been his "placee".She and all her children are listed as MU on the 1870 & 1880 Iberia Parish Census Records.Mr. Joseph Romero's name does not appear on these census records but he had to have still been around as late as 1878-79 when the last child was born.That last child was my maternal great-grandfather, Joseph Nicholas Romero.Here are the children by order of birth according to the census records:
Mary Romero b. ca. 1866 Therese Romero b. ca. 1869 Louise Romero b. ca. 1873 Laura Romero b. ca. 1876 Joseph Nicholas Romero b. ca. 1878-1879
Could your Mary Decuir and my Mary Decuir be one in the same, or mother/daughter if the dates don't gel?
I would appreciate any information you might have on Mary Decuir to help me connect to my Creole roots and family.
