Kristin, Thanks for the info on the Gauthiers and the sites. I have traced all the Gauthiers in our tree. Dorsin is my husband's ggrand father. I did have the info you sent but I have not been able to trace Celenaire. The barron site is really interesting.
I went to the Library yesterday after I posted you the info I had found. I found Zenon in the Early Families of Avoyelles by Nelson Gremillion.
It does list Henry Zenon Ducote and Claire Laborde as his parents. Four children are listed. Degastille born c1829. Eugenie, born c 1843, Ludger Ducote born c1845 and Celistine born c1847. Zenon was deceased bef 1850. Phyllis
