What a beautiful photo you have!!! I am going to have to figure out who Joseph Frank Gallien is and how he fits into my Gallier line. I have been doing this research for YEARS, but will admit that I left the Gallien line research once my branch became the Galliers of Beaumont, TX. Let's see if we can figure this out -- The last official Gallien in my line is Francois (my gggggrandfather!!) born 2 Oct 1772 in Opelousas. His son, Joseph(my ggggrandfather -- who was born a Gallien, but remained one briefly) and Francois moved to TX in the early 1800's where the name mysteriously changes to Gallier. It has remained Gallier ever since in TX.

Francois' father, who was also named Joseph Gallien, was born 15 Feb 1723 in Canada but died in LA. Are you related through THIS Joseph's son -- and Francois' brother -- Joseph -- born in Opelousas 15 Jan 1781??

Did I confuse you enough!!!!?? Gosh knows, I think I have confused myself! Terri
