Re: Vanderwater, Abel 1800's louisiana ?
My Mother is Deward Revia's daughter. Deward (also known as Dub) was the youngest or second youngest child of Irene and Judson's.

Judson was a Merchant Marine and when Irene died, Dweard and John (the two youngest) were sent to live with Kirby, the oldest son and his wife.
My Mother said it was believed that Irene died from a broken heart after one of her sons, Otis, died. She was believed to be a devoted Mother to her children and it devistated the family.
I don't know all too much more than that at this time as my Mother just informed me of this today. I'm on a mission now to find out more.
I hope this is of some help.
