I've been research my Avoyelles history using a library copy of "Some Early Families of Avoyelles Parish, Vol 1" and I've come across a mystery that I can't solve using just this resource.
I've come across mention of several Valery Defours, some obviously sons of others and I'm trying to straight them out.
Valery Dufour I m. Marie Louise Rabalais on 27 Sep 1806
Valery Dufour II m. Felonise LaCour on 20 Jul 1830
Valery Dufour III m. Clara Mayeux on 27 Jan 1852
Valery Dufour II b. on 25 Oct 1810
Does all of that sound correct? I need to plow through some Federal Census records but I thought I'd check with the brain trust.
Also, on pgs. 90-91 There's mention of Eugenie Dufour, daughter of Charles Dufour II and Eulalie Decuir, marrying in 1830 her cousin Martin, son of Valery Dufour and Marie Rabalais.
Following that it list as Eugenie's brother, a Valery Defour, marrying a Marie Rabalais.
Seems improbable. Anyone have any more info?
I'm also looking to confirm that Pamela Dufour born 1839 is indeed the daughter of Valery Dufour II and F. LaCour.
Lastly, I'd like to find copies of both Early Familes of Avoyelles 1 & 2 for purchase for my own collection. Can anyone point me to a source?
