Gerald I still have some confusion re Simeon Richard. There is either more than one in the same time frame or one of us has misinformation. According to my search Simeon Richard is the son of Marcellin Richard and Julienne Meche. He was born 24March 1845. He married Coralie Delahoussaye 4Jan1868. I have a Batptismal Cert that shows Simeon was born on that date and baptized 1 July 1845. This from the Grand Coteau Church records. Aloida Richard is a daughter of this union and this is confirmed by Alida's marriage cert dated 19Jan1887. I glean much of my info from the SWLa Records books. I can certainly be wrong but would like to confirm my info. You can come direct to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Are you related to or know Adrienne Eaton? She is in this family and I stay in touch.
