I'm glad you are pleased with the research. As I mentioned, it would be good to find the church/civil records in Father Hebert's books, Southwest Louisiana Records. Then you could be 100% sure that we are on the right track.

There is a correction to the Como/Comeaux census of 1880. Desire is listed as a female and I thought she would be the mother [Desiree]. However, I found the 1870 census record for the family and Desire is the father. The mother is listed as Sarah [bn ca 1840]. The children are: Irwin [11], Everett [9], Lee [6], Willis [5], Granville [2] and Clara [1]. So, by 1880, it is the mother and not the father who is deceased.

In 1860, I found Desire Coman [it actually read Comau] in St. Mary Parish. He was a planter, had $30,000 in real estate and $20,000 in personal estate. His wife was S.J. [Sarah Jane] and their child, Irwin, was one. An O.C. Murry [25] was also in the household. Listed just before this family was Antoine Coman, age 50, had $75,000 in real estate and $80,000 in personal estate. Six-year old Louisa lived with him. This Antoine is no doubt the father of Desire. Just after Desire's listing was a Mrs. C. Hayes [40], Mrs. A. Coman [85], Desire Hayes [17] and Deliane Hayes [14]. The older lady was no doubt the mother of Antoine Comeu. Mrs. Hayes [Clementine Como] was married to David Hayes on 4/18/1843. I also found a marriage record for an Antoine Comaux and Eliza Leblanc on 10/19/1829.

I've found a marriage record for Joseph Doucet and Carmelite Richard. They married 8/19/1828. These last three marriages are on the Internet, but were abstracted from Father Hebert's books.

I really don't know what to make of the Credeur/Carothers name changes. It seems that most of the time some form of the Carothers name is used. Every once in a while, Credeur is used. It just doesn't seem to me that it is the same name. It's a puzzle...

If you have a pedigree chart, it would be good to enter all the info so that you can see what is what. Just a suggestion...

More to come...
