Saurage Line in TX/LA?
I am just starting a geneology search on my family and would be grateful for any information on the Saurage line and any tips on where to start.
Based on family notes/records/correspondence and folklore handed down (and only my mother's death certificate so far)this is what I know:
My maternal grandmother was Maude Mae Saurage born around 1904 (daughter of Emil Saurage and Maude Dupuy) possibly born in Galvestion TX but she was definitely raised in Plaquemine LA. She had one sister and five brothers with the following names: Sadie, Aaron, Leslie, Jess and Lionel(aka Jack).
I know nothing about Sadie. I think I remember my grandma telling me Sadie died young, but I am not sure on that. Family records show no information about Sadie at all.
Aaron Saurage married Florence and had a son named Kenneth Howard Saurage.
Leslie Saurage married Eunice and they had two children, a son Leslie Jr (aka "Buddy") and daughter, Maudell Marie Saurage.
Jessie Saurage married Gladys (who went by "Tiny")and they had children named Bernard, Pearl, and Jessie Delores. It looks like Jessie Delores was born in 1927 based on old correspondence.
Lionel Saurage (who went by "Jack") married Bessie and they had a daughter Betty Jo Saurage.
Any information, help, suggestions appreciated greatly!
Thank you soooo much!
