Live Oak Plantation on Bayou Lafourche

Surnames: Gonzales
My husband's ancestors worked on Live Oak Plantation around the turn of the 20th century. Adam Gonzales, children, and his widowed sister Velina Gonzales (perhaps also married to a Gonzales?). I have seen other people who also lived at Live Oak in the 1900 census, many of whom were descendents of the people who migrated from the Canary Islands to the Bayou Lafourche area. I am also aware that Live Oak's owner Mary Pugh donated all her family's papers to LSU, many of which reference Live Oak. That being said, I cannot find any photograph of this plantation online, save for pictures of several different Live Oak plantations scattered around the South and Louisiana. Did this plantation ever have a manor house, or was it strictly a farm tract? And was it nearer Madewood, also owned by the Pugh family, or closer to Thibodaux. I do know that the parish church the Gonzales family attended was St. Philomena's in Labadieville, if this is any help. If anyone has any information on this plantation, I would really appreciate their response. Thanks.
