Dear Mr. Thomas,
I am sorry for the delay in sending you the information I have found on your request. I have been out of the office for awhile. I was in Houston, TX with my father, who has recently been diagnosed with cancer.
Ulysses LeBlanc born July 8, 1880 -- I did not find a baptism record. He married Mary McCarthy Jan. 14, 1903, here at St. Landry Church volume 3, page 298. He also married Magdalien Papillon, April 9, 1909 volume 3, page 436. The record states that he is the widower of Mary McCarthy. The death record for Mary McCarthy is in volume XVI, page 245, Jan. 9, 1909.
William LeBlanc, Jr. -- I did not find baptism records or marriage records for.
Robert LeBlanc, born Dec. 16, 1890, baptized here at St. Landry in volume 7 page 212. He married Elmire Thibodeaux here in volume 3 page 409.
Joseph LeBlanc, born Feb. 13, 1893, was baptized here in volume 7 page 273. I did not find a marriage record for him.
Henry LeBlanc, Born Nov. 22, 1895, was baptized here in volume 7 page 332. I did not find a marriage record for him. I searched the marriage index for LeBlanc up to 1945.
I also found a record of marriage of one William LeBlanc widower of Mary Merante Pierre August---married Sarah Foard June 1907, in volume 3 page 396. I think this is William Sr.
Ophelia LaTour was baptized in Eunice, LA at St. Anthony Catholic Church, whose address is P. O. Box 31, Eunice LA, 70535. The record is in volume 4 page 116. Lee LaTour was also baptized in Eunice at St. Anthony in volume 5 page 52. You will have to write St. Anthony's Church for these records. The research was one and a half hours, so the $14.00 you sent will cover the cost. The certificates are $4.00 each. Please let me know which ones you would like to have. I did not research death records for Robert, Joseph or Henry LeBlanc. I will await your reply.
