I've yet to entirely figure out the LaBorde connection,though I know they are related on my father's side. LaBorde doesn't seem to be a common name, and it's less common here in Wisconsin. Seeing that you mentioned Oshkosh I had to respond. My uncle let me borrow one of grandmother's photo alblums. There are old news clippings and obituaries of the LaBorde family in it. They Seem to center around a George E. Laborde. Let me know if you have any imformation or would like imformation.
