Hi, this is Isabel, Chris's wife. Wonderful to see you on here. I had received a notification I guess during the time you posted but was not sure if it was spam or the real thing & never followed it.
Last I knew you were in South Carolina, we must definitely keep in touch & plan to see each other. We live so close since we are in Jacksonville (Hubert) NC.
I got the research bug again & after doing some research/finding & adding to Sue's side of the family I decided to see what I can find on the Collette side. I have found a lot more thank goodness for the internet. Go figure the last name is actually spelled "Jabaut", according to all the obituaries I have found on your guys' great uncles, hoping that is correct.
Well, this is it for now, it is past midnight & since a week ago I have been getting less sleep since I am hooked on this family research.
One more thing, on Google earth you can see the house on Peru Street, well not quite sure it is the original one. Maybe you can identify it.
