Hello,
I must have over looked this message in my email. I discovered it yesterday. As you know Joe Joseph Pitre was my father, his father was Leon Pitre, he was second or third cousin to Willie Pete. Also to Roy Pitre, Helen Pitre, Chester Pitre, Effie Pitre who died two years ago in Opelousas,Louisiana.I am stuck on who my great-grandfather is, I would like to know Leon's father and mother's name. Leon married Sedonia Baptiste the spelling maybe worng. Leon and Sedonia was killed in a tornado in 1925 in slick Oklahoma. Three siblings,two boys survived the storm.They where Joseph Joe Pitre my father and Jason Pitre. They where raised by an uncle we call Johnny Pete Pitre and his wife Rosie Pitre Stevenson. I don't know sny of my gradmothers people. I know my fathers relatives that live in Oklahoma, which include the Holliers and Prudhomes,and Petes. Joe Joseph had 10 children,8 of us are still living. Jason had 10 and 9 is still living.There is a cemetery in Oklahoma that is online with Leon Pitres grave his wife Sedonia and the children that were killed in the storm. Also Joseph is buried there and many of his cousins by the last name of Pete. Please pursue marriage records,census and anything you can find on Leon Pitre aand Sedonia Pitre.Tell your grandmother hello and I have a strong feeling we are related somewhere. I live in Phoenix,Arizona my phone number is 602-276-0161. Feel free to call me, I would like to talk to you. I got the message a little late for the reuion I won't be able to come but please send me a program to this address 304 W. Southern Avenue Apt.108, Phoenix,Arizona 85041. If my health is alright next year I plan to be in Louisiana. On historical storm data I found the record of the storm that killed my grandparents,but there were no names just the date,time,and year. I will call the number thats on the e-mail and try to get info. I'm sending your message to my sister Dorthy and her husband will e-mail you. He is making a book on the Pitre's. He will be writing you. Thanks you made my day, please answer me right back since I found your mail.
Yours Truly,
Charles Etta Pitre Washington
