Sir - thank you for your response.i am sorry that i didnt get your email in my basket alerting me of your posting.i just had a thought to check the forum and was pleased to see your follow up.
Now, from what i get that the TROXLERs (original family name spelling from ancestor in France who came to Louisiana) and the TROSCLAIRs are basically the same family.How it got changed I dont know, except that the FRENCH ruled so most was frenchified as i call it.I know that my father in laws family is from St Charles, but how he got to Lafourche Parish I dont know.Maybe it will show up on the 1930s US census due out this year.As upto 1920, they appear in St Charles.
When we visit, he speaks about him being born on Greenwood, evidentally didnt last long - something happened that he doesnt remember (fire, lost money, etc) he was too young to know what was going on and evidentally his parents never told him.I assumed that it was the family plantation TROXLER/TROSCLAIR.You mentioning the ROGER family is new.They were the ones with money, as this family lived very simply from what i can tell and may be considered hard working/working class people.
Someone had sent me 3 pictures of Troxler homes in St Charles, they were all very simple basic homes, nothing like the ones remaining today - Madewood, Nottoway, Greenwood (the other one), Rienzi.
Being here in St Louis, Missouri, I dont know if I will be able to get the book you mentioned.I will try at our library tomorrow to see if they can get it.I would love to read what it has to say.I have tried numerous places in LA trying to find out info on all the TROXLER residences.Appearently, the ones in St Charles stood where the chemical plants are now.So it is sad that the land can not be bought again and a house reconstructed there.
I have not done any searching of the Trosclair lineage, although, have seen it in the US CENSUS many times in my searches.I believe I will have to go back and copy ALL that info down and see if we can connect them.So far, I have 1920 back to 1810 census on my husbands line.These Trosclairs started off Troxler somewhere back down the road and evidentally gotten changed the further they moved from St Charles.
If I am unable to get the book at the library, do you think that the book is for sale someplace?I would like to keep in touch with you if possible.I am excited about your letter and possible readings of Greenwood/Trosclairs.I dont mind sharing what I have found with you, but I have nothing on Trosclairs, I am sorry.
