Re: Col. Gustave Breaux
BINGO ! I had your great-grandfather in my database as GustaveArvilien Breaux effectively married (first marriage) to Emilie Locke. I also have your great-grandfather (Gustave Arvilien Jr.) in my database plus his siblings and descendancy. I cuold email you an extract of my database so that you can see what I have and help to complete my informations especially for the younger generations. My email is: email@example.com
Regarding your ancestry, you might be interested to know that 3 books were published on our family history, and I can tell you a little bit about your line.
Gustave Arvilien Jr. was on the 8th generation
Vincent Brault came from France to Acadie in he 17th century
we don't know yet where he came from (the baptism act of a
Vincent Brault, son of Rene Brault and Marie Renaulme, found in France is not our ancestor). I'm following your line:
Vincent's 7th child, Francois Brau is in your line. He lived in Acadie
Francois' 11th child, Alexis Breau, also lived in Acadie
Alexis' 3rd child, Pierre Firmin Breaux, was born in Acadie, deported in 1755 in the Boston area and when his parents and siblings decided to migrate to Quebec in 1766, he did not follow them and went down to Louisiana where we see him in the 25 apr 1766 census of the district of La Pointe (bachelor).
Pierre Firmin's 3rd child, Francois Breaux was Agricole's older brother (Agricole being the 12th child of Pierre Firmin). Francois married twice.
Francois' 1st child, Aurelien (Orient)is next in your lineage
Aurelien's 6th child was Gustave Arvilien Breaux, your great-great-grandfather.
It's very schematic, but it gives you an idea of your family line.
