My ancestor is Clovis Gerard. He was married to Amable, also seen as spelled Aimable and Amiable. They had 2 male children, Louis Peter and Desire, akd Desiree... I am trying to locate information on Amable. She may also be known as Mary Amable. I have not be able to locate a last name for her. She was supposedly born in France, betw 1800-1806 and died in Missouri in 1885. Also looking for any information on Desire's time in the Union Army. His brother Louis was in Confederate Army and have located several items about him, including the fact that he was POW at one time. But Ihave not been able to document any thing about Desire's time in military during the Civil War.
