So elated to hear from you. My dad's familty is also from Convent. Harry Francois Sr. was my grandfather. He married Kate(Critty) Malarcher. The Malarchers all were from Covent/Central.Actually were slaves on the Malarcher plantation.I have recorded geneology on them as far back as 1822.Any info on the Francois family you can give me, please know that I will appreciate. It seems we may be closely related. I live in Metairie and can be reached at 737-1313. I have a sister too, who is very interested in geneology. Her name is Althea Francois and can be reached at 940-6756. Please call me when you can. I would love to talk to you.
