My name is Cynthia DeCoux Stone. I am working on my family history and seem to be stuck at the DeCoux part. Hopefully, I can connect with someone who can give me a name or two and start me on my way.
My grandfather was Abel Decoux. He was born 19OCT1894. I believe he was from the New Iberia area, but he could have been born around Pointe Coupee, as well. His mother was Louise Judice and his father was Jean Paul DeCoux.
Abe had many siblings: Lucille, Maurice, Teresa (married garcia), Marie Mable, Rene,Blance, Anna, Pierre Sydney, and Marie Rose.
We are part of the Gonsoulin heirship, and are related to many other DeCouxs. Jean Paul DeCoux, my ggf, had siblings:
Adolphe DeCoux who married Florestine Vaughn (children = Henry,Frank, George,Adolphe, Clarence, Lauren, Laurence, Mauise, Laura who married Prutherds)
Rodolphe who adopted Aurelie.
Norber (no children)
Murat who married Elmire Bernard (children= Sadie who married Vinsor, Olga, Murat Bernard,Jr.)
Eras, married Boutte
Eda, married Boudreaux
If any of these are people you know, I would appreciate hearing from you. My father, his parents, and older sister have all passed away. My cousins and I are looking for our other cousins, just to know who and where they are. She lives in Houston, I live in VA, and my mother and my paternal aunt, still live in Sulphur. Thanks, Cindy
