Hey Cousin Florence,
I was just at the Heritage Place at Lenoir Community College today and was looking at some of the old newspapers and noticed the LaRoque name. They have an online catalog via this link: http://www.lenoircc.edu/Library/index.htm
There are several LaRoque entries: one book and several photos. Here is one that I think you will find of interest.
"Kilpatrick family history : Bright, Gray, Kilpatrick, Laroque, Lovick"
There are also several entries for the Lovick surname.
Here is the main link to the Heritage Place:http://heritage.lenoircc.edu/heritageplace/index.htm
All the Best,
