Do you realize your family continutes the names of Napoleon's Grand Marshal Michel Ney? I have collected info on Elsabet Ney the sculptress, do not have enough info to identify. My family also always went to the city "New Orleans" stayed Monte Leon Hotel. My mother b. 1915 in New Orleans. My figure and hair as you describe. I will have to look up my correspondence with New Orleans Ney - never connected but feel there has to be connection.
