I am seeking more information about Louis Constant MICHAUD, b. 18 May 1834 in Besancon, Doubs, France and died 20 Feb. 1869 in Perry Co., MO. He is listed in the 1850 census for Perry Co. as residing with Henry Tucker and his wife Elizabeth. He Married Marie Flore PREVALLET 30 December 1856. Marie Flore is also listed in church records as Florence Octavia PREVALET.
I would appreciate any further information anyone has about Louis Constant. I have information that he immigrated to the United States with a brother Emil, who died at sea during the voyage. I am curious as to why someone so young - he was certainly under 18 when he left, would come to Missouri. Did he land at New Orleans and travel up the river by steamboat? What was his connection to the Tuckers?
I would also appreciate any ancestral information anyone might have about the Prevallets. I have a translated copy of Constant's birth certificate passed on to me from another Michaud descendent. I would truly love to obtain more information about these immigrant ancestors from Perry Co.
