Joy, thanks for the note.
Yes I am a descendant of Claude Juneau through his daughter Ursule, who married Avoyelles Post commandant Jacques Gagnard. Their daughter Modeste Gagnard married Pierre LaBorde II. Their son Francois LaBorde is my maternal gg-grandfather.
Someone else responded to my posting and gave me the information on Joe Juneau, namesake of Juneau Alaska. Joe was a 4th generation descendant of Francois Juneau dit Latulippe, who was Claude's brother from Canada.
My ancestry is mainly Gaspard, Lachney, Bonnette and LaBorde. But yes any two people from Avoyelles Parish will likely have common bloodlines. I do have Lemoine, Roy, Ducote and Mayeux in my ancestry several generations back.
I grew up in Marksville and later New Orleans, and have relatives still in the area (Hessmer and Alexandria). But I left Louisiana 38 years ago and have been in Florida now for 33 years.
