Emile Louis Chauvin was born 1838 in the New Orleans area, Orleans Parish, Louisiana. He married (in a civil ceremony) 18 December 1860, Thibodaux, Lafourche Parish, Louisiana, Marie Josephine Part [Parr] (b. 24 July 1834 Lockport, Lafourche Parish, Louisiana). Their first marriage is listed in records of Thibodaux Court House, Marriage Book volumne 11 #69. They were married in a religious ceremony at Lockport Catholic Church 8 July 1863. That marriage is listed in the Lockport Church records, Volumne 1 on last pages. In their second marriage record their parents are listed. Emile Louis's father is shown as Antoine Chauvin and his mother is listed as Elisabeth Demond. I have received information from a relative that his mother's last name may be deMonte and it is possible she was from the Dominican Islands. If you are of this line, or can assist me with this parentage, please e-mail me. Thank you for taking the time to read my request.
