About Our Family Research
This is the beginning of my journey to find my family history. To my delight I am finding that the Prudhomme family has a rich family history in the Mansfield, LA (DeSoto Parish) area. This is my search for my rich ancestory - my family roots - my bloodline.
Emma Lafitte (kin to Pirate Jean Lafitte) is the mother of my grandfather, Octave Prudhomme. Octave Prudhomme married Minnie Lyles and these were the children born of that union: Joseph Junior Prudhomme (deceased), Curtis Prudhomme (deceased), Frank (Red) Prudhomme (deceased), Oscar Prudhomme, Henry Prudhomme, Marie Prudhomme and Emma (Tena) Prudhomme.
