I posted an earlier message about Gaspards in Central LA and have not heard back yet. I have also received one additional bit of information. Apparently the first Gaspard on our branch to come to LA was a Telesfon (sp?) Gaspard. He was a french or canadian trapper who married and Indian squa. Their son Josephhad a son Arthur who married Selma Foret. They had a son named George who married Marie Richard. They had two sons Arthur and Ward. Ward is my grandfather. He married Bertha Rabalais and they have 6 sons. I know that for some time the family resided in White Castle, but that is all I have been able to really get from my grandfather. ANY help would be appreciated!
