Thank you for your reply.I am a native of Morgan City, now retired and live in Las Vegas. My interest in the Francioni family is for two reasons. First, my grandfather who came to Morgan City about 1874 was a close friend of the Francionis and he and his family had Sunday dinner at their home regularly for many years. Secondly, I am researching early businesses in Morgan City for a possible publication, and of course Nonce and then his widow were operating a combination saloon and grocery store on North Railroad Avenue until, I believe, the late 1890s. The Morgan City Archives is a gold mine for local history and I have researched there for about 30 years. In fact, they are sending me some information next week.
