Yes, Opal is my husband's grandmother. She is a bit fuzzy on her grandparents, "Pappa John" (Demeritt, Sr.) & Mama John (Sarah Adams Demeritt). Family scuttlebutt has one of the John Demeritts abandoning a wife & children back east to come to Louisiana. Some say that "back east" is Connecticut, others insist on New Hampshire. My mother-in-law seems to think it might be Virginia. I've been sifting through cemetery records & have found "Rubhn(sic) Demeritt son of John and Lora" at Indian Bayou Cemetery in Lafayette Parrish. Where are John Sr. & Sarah buried?
