First Name:

The Francois Pradia-Pradier Family

Updated January 14, 2007

About Our Family Research

Researching the descendents of Francois Pradia-Pradier who fathered the children of Celeste Trahan (Joseph), Rosalie Cadier (Francios Baptiste, Emmanuel, Gabriel & Benjamin) and Celeste Dennais (Philip, Felix, Elisabeth & Jean Romulus).

I am the great-great granddaughter of Francois Pradier (Rosalie Cadier), the great granddaughter of Emmanuel Pradier (Elisabeth Sarver), the granddaugher of Jean Agile Pradier (Celeste Benoit) and the daughter of Gabriel Pradier (Marva). Most of my father's relatives, even his seven sisters, spell their surname "Pradia". The difference in spelling may be attributed to documentation in Louisiana during Spanish and French influence. The Spanish spelling reads Pradia while the French spelling reads Pradier. Although my father spells his name "Pradier" his (Our Mother of Mercy Church-Ames, Texas) baptism certificate reads Gabriel J. Pradia, child of John Pradia and Celeste Benoit; sponsors: Malcolm Pradia & Thora Pradia.

I chaired the Pradia-Pradier Family Reunion 2005 in Houston, Texas along with Ariann Pradia-Grant, Raymond Marks and Rita Pradier. The next reunion is scheduled for July 5-8, 2007 in Los Angeles, CA. Please email Marsha Pradia ( or me if you are interested in attending. Additionally, if you have any family information you would like to share, please email me at or fax 713-451-3449.
