Is your Joseph A. Pourciau in any way related to a Julie Pourciau of PC born ca 1840? It appears from what I have been able to determine that Julie lived with Zenon Porche but was never married to him. They had a daughter, Marie Alice Porche, born in 1860. I have never been able to link Julie to any of the Pourciaus whose records are readily available. Both Julie and Zenon Porche were among Pointe Coupee's unique, very large, and quite distinguished community of free people of color. Can you help?
