Re: My Family Tree (Matherne)
Jean (John) Augustin MATHERNE was born 20 Sep 1882 in Lockport, Lafourche, LA, the son of Jean Alidor MATHERNE and Emma Jeanne DOMINIQUE.
There was a Jean MATHERNE born 29 Jul 1873 in St. James, St. James, LA, the son of Michel Manuel MATHERNE and Celestine BARBIER. This is in the line of Jacques Santiago MATHERNE's brother Noel Manuel MANTHERNE, who settled in St. James Parish, LA.
People often find a name on the internet and say, "Aha! This must be him." Then they put him in their "tree" and put it on the internet and others come along and repeat the error in their own records. It took me about three years to sort out the different Nicolas (Nicholas) MATHERNEs.
Just so you'll know, my wife Tessa MATHERNE's brother Stephen Lee MATHERNE (1927 - 2005) was married to Nobby Mary BABIN; her mother was Lorina Mae SAVOIE, sister of Esther Pearl SAVOIE, wife of Edward Joseph MATHERNE. My wife's mother was Beulah Anna SAVOIE (1900 - 1986), So you and my wife are related on the MATHERNE and the SAVOIE sides.
I have some information on your family, but would appreciate information on your and your sister Angelique's families - husbands, children, birth dates and places, marriage dates and places, etc. I would like to include that in the info I will send you.
