I have the name Desidere in my family line and it seems that my great great grandfather--who was named Philosame Desidere 1834-1907(that is how I know him) name could have been Philosame Desidere e Parilla Prado or something similar. It seems that Philosame dropped the "e Parilla Prado" after having a falling out with his family back in San Antonio about a Spanish Land Grant. This is information I have just received.
It is also possible that he came from Mexico (which is now texas) into Louisiana in the late 1800's. Just wondering if any of your surnames might be of Spanish or Mexican decent and if Desidere might be part of the name.
I couldnt find any desidere until the later 1800 census. The main reason I am posting to this board---is because of the Parillo name.
If you might know of something---I'd appreciate the information.
