Unforntunatly I do not know to much either. I do know definitly that there was three siblings, Irvin, Gladys, & Joseph. There mother was Eve(eva,Ave,Ava) Fontenot. I have found her name spelled so many ways and their father was Joseph Dresmon Landreneaux. But thats where it gets sticky. I havent been able to really find much on him and according to the 1940 census, he had died sometime between 1930-1940. He is on the 1930 census with Eve, Irvin, Gladys, & Joseph. I havent found anything on the 1920 census but on the 1910 census, he is shown to be married to Meletine Jeansonne or Johnson and they have 3/4 kids. My grandmother Hazel (joseph)wife, said that as far as she knows, that their father was hit by a car sometime in 1930s and died but I havent been able to find anything to support that. I did find a death record showing he died in 1943. They were all from the mamou area. Also, it gets difficult tracking their father down cause his name seems to change drastically over the years. From Joseph D., Joseph Drasimond, Joseph Drenson, and even Trasimond Landreneau.

Irvin was born 10-15-1916 and died 11-4-2001. He is buried Elwood Cemetary in Bowie Tx. He has a daughter named Connie Jean Landreneaux born 8-21-1965. He was married to Vonie Key, who died in a car wreck, and then he married peggy funchess. When I asked my grandmother about his son(hank), she didnt remember anything about him but she may not have known about him either.

Gladys Landreneaux-Havent found to much on her either. I believe she is the same Gladys Landreneaux Louviere (9/4/1920-4/6/1971) buried in jennings, la. I know she had a daughter named Geneva but thats are far as i get with her.

Joseph(my grandfather in law)(8/5/1924-6/16/2005) married Hazel Adkisson and they had 5 sons, Robert Eugene, Danny Ray, Johnny Dale, Irvin Wayne, & Joseph Lynn. Joseph also has a daughter, Jane Dowers.

My grandmother Hazel didnt know much about his family except they used to have a reunion every year down south louisiana and that his mother Eve couldnt speak english, only french. According to a grave search, there is a Desmond Landreneau buried in Mamou Protestant Cem. in Mamou but unk where Eve is buried. I do have a copy of Irvin's delayed birth certificate i can email you if you would like.

As you can tell, I dont have very much definite information on anyone past Irvin, Gladys, and Joseph but I am just getting starting and I am determined to find out who is who.
