Surnames: Girod/Dorig
Yes, there is truth in the story about the name Dorig. It was Girod spelled backwards according to my mother. My parents were married at Dorig July 25, 1920. This was only a post office in a store owned by Mr. Landeaux and located just inside Caldwell parish on La. Hwy 133. Although Mother and Grandpa lived in Richland parish across Beouf River I suppose Mom and Dad crossed the river in a boat to the nearest place they could get married. Mr. Landeaux might have been a justic of peace, that I am not sure of. Later as a child in the late 40's and early 50's we live in Richland parish but just across the parish line so I remember seeing the little store building that Mother always said was also the post office. Mother often spoke of the Landeaux's and Girod's which lived a few miles farther south on this same highway. Some of the Girod grandchildren were near my age and we played together. One of the girls still lives is Columbia as far as I know. I had the privilege of attending a family reunion of a friend at the Landeaux home a few years ago shotly before it was destored by fire. The store building was gone at that time but I did here the daughter of the Landeaux's talking about it. The home was really something for when it was built (not sure when it was) and was in the process of being restored when faulty wireing cause the fire. I have a lot of memories of this area. The Laudeaux home was an important place during the 1927 flood as it was one of the few places that was high and not covered by water. Hope this helps you. Will be gald to answer any question if I can or point you to some one that can. Is there a Felix Girod in your family? Sue
