Hi Stephenie, lovely to hear from you and so great to finally come across someone with my family name COVELE!!!
I havent explored the PIERRUS side, but there are others on this board who have quite a bit of information on this family name, but not sure how this branch connects at this point.
I have compiled a bit of information on Jules and his descendants, I will look for it. From what I found, it seems that he had been married before and had had at least 3 daughters, one of whom was the Francoise Ida you mention. This means that Fernand Louis had half-siblings.
I am very intrigued about the bible you have, and the information it contains - I am hoping that I might find the link I have been looking for as I have hit a brick wall in my research. Jules is one of 3 COVELE men from Mauritius I have been unable to connect to each other - perhaps the family bible will unravel this mystery? How exciting after all these years of searching for information!! I am hoping that you might share this with me. In turn I am happy to exchange what I have.

- hope to hear from you soon :)
