If you are researching the below Faucheux/Faucheaux families I'd like to hear from you if you also descend from these (my email is jayschexnaydre@att.net).

Louis Faucheux (1775-1846) Françoise Roger (1787-1869)
Their Children:
Louis Jr (1805) m Melanie Hymel
André (1807)
Norbert (1810) m Delphine Waguespack
Francis (1812)
Alfred (1817) m Theresie Faucheux
Myrtile Antoinette (1818) m Mathieu Robert
Genevieve Estelle (1819)
Marie Arthemise (1821) m Joseph Zeringue
Pierre Amedee (1831)

Also family of
François Faucheux Julie Haydel
several children...one daughter is my ancestor, Arthemise Faucheux married André Evariste Waguespack.

I somehow believe these are all tied together, let me know if you are also working on this puzzle.

I am a descendant of Pieere Faucheux who is buried in Edgard Louisiana. His property transactions are recorded in the courthouse there. My great-grand father ,Joseph Faucheux was, I believe, the grandson of Pierre Faucheux. Joseph Faucheux moved from Edgard to Bayou Lafourche near Thibodaux in the late 1920's. I was told by an aunt that Pierre Faucheux was one of two brothers that arrived in Louisiana in the late 18th century. I would like to verify who was Pierre Faucheux's brother and Who were Pierre's children and grandchildren.

Joyce, Thanks for your information on Pierre Faucheux. Based on the 1830,1840,1870 census information for SJB, I have been able to piece together my ties to one of several Pierre Faucheux's from this region. What I have verified is that a Pierre Faucheux Jr. resided in the same house as a Pierre Faucheux Sr who was born ca 1790. Pierrre Jr was married to Phelonise _____. The children living in this house are assumed to be those of Pierre Jr and Phelonise. One of these children was Alfred enumerated as 8 years old in the census of 1840. Alfred shows up in later years as HOH married to Theresie born in 1 ca1840. I was told by relatives that Alfred marriewd a Faucheux. I believe this to be your Theresie the great-great aunt of your husband. Joseph A Faucheux is listed in the census of 1870 in the household of Alfred Faucheux.
The census of 1830 shows two women between the ages of 20 and 30 living in the household of Pierre Faucheux. Could there have been more than one set of decendants from Pierre Faucheux. This is a big mystery. I have not reviewed the Church records yet...
I have not posted this on other boards. Thanks for your help. Have you researched the records in the Diocese of New Orleans?

Randolph, Pierre Jr. was married to (Elisa)
Marie Elizabeth Tassin and they had 13 children
that I could find so far. Most everything I
have I've gotten from books in library or
recently on the computer and from family.
Pierre C. Sr. was married to Marie Felonise
(Phelonise or Chelonise) Laurent. Pierre Jr.
born 12 May 1831; Pierre Sr. born 1803.
Another Pierre Faucheux born 1790 was married
to Adelaide Ste. (Celeste) Champagne he was
Pierre C. Sr.'s father. This I got from a
book "St. Charles ?" by Conrad and all of
this checks out. The only child I have for
Pierre Adelaide is Pierre Sr. but I'm sure
they had more. I just haven't found them
yet. What is the last name of the Alfred
you are talking about? Pierre Sr. Marie
Felonise do have a daughter listed as Theresie.
Louis's grandfather is Joseph Clairfait
"Zoot" Faucheux. He was born Mar. 13, 1864
so I don't know if that could be who you
are talking about. Zoot lived to be 101.
He lived in Hahnville. He outlived all
his children except Clara Faucheux Bourg
and Achille Faucheux. You see there are
three Pierre's, I guess that's where the
confusion comes in. I have not researched
the records in the Dioces of new Orleans.
I'm from St. Mary Parish. Let me know
if you need anything else. Joyce

Joyce,

The Alfred was a Faucheux and was married to Theresie Fauceux, his second or third cousin. Alfred was the son of Pierre Faucheux Jr. and grandson of the Pierre Faucheux born in 1790. Alfred is my great-great grandfather.

The information on Theresie is confirmed in the census of 1870 which shows a Pierre Faucheux living in the same household. Incidently, Alfred's family at this time are in dwelling 166 and your Pierre C family is two houses down listed as family 168 in the census of 1870.
Thanks for your interest in the early Faucheux's of SJB Parish La.
Cheers,
Randolph

Randy,
Jay Schexnaydre posted the following:

Louis Faucheux (1775-1846) Françoise Roger (1787-1869)
Their Children:
Louis Jr (1805) m Melanie Hymel
André (1807)
Norbert (1810) m Delphine Waguespack
Francis (1812)
Alfred (1817) m Theresie Faucheux
Myrtile Antoinette (1818) m Mathieu Robert
Genevieve Estelle (1819)
Marie Arthemise (1821) m Joseph Zeringue
Pierre Amedee (1831)

Your post indicates that an Alfred m Theresie wqs the the son of Pierre. Is it a coincidence that Louis (1775-1846) Françoise Roger (1787-1869)
also had a son Alfred (1817) m Theresie Faucheux?

At the time of the census that you refer to (1870) Alfred (1817) m Theresie and Pierre Amedee(1831)...would have aged 53 and 39 years respectively. Is the Pierre and Theresie living in the same household Alfred's wife and brother? If so, was Theresie then remarried to Pierre, or did Alfred and Theresie take in Pierre?
Getting interested,
Frank

Frank,
Theresie was also born a Faucheux. She is shown as the wife of Albert in 1870 census. Their children include Joseph and Camille our great greandfather and great uncle. I believe the the family posted by Jay is actually Theresie's family. Note the maiden name of her mother. Joseph's second son was named Roger, perhaps for his grandmothers maiden name? Check out family 177 dwelling 166 in the census of 1870 at rootsweb.com. Alfred and Theresie are listed as being 38 and 30 in the census of 1870. Pierre and Phelonise are shon in the same house and are aged 60 and 50 at the time. The census records are only the basis for additional research I am doing in the church and Civil Parish records. Great to see you "getting Interested" I have it from another source that there was a Theresie Faucheux born to a Pierre Clairfait and Marie Felonise Laurent
making Theresie a second or third cousin once removed from our Albert?

Randy,
If the family that Jay posted were Theresie's, would she not be listed with Louis and Francoise's children as: Theresie (d.o.b.) m Alfred Faucheux, rather than Alfred (1817) m Theresie Faucheux?

Jay's list clearly shows Louis Faucheux and Francoise Roger's son, Alfred, married Theresie Faucheux. It would seem an unthinkable coinscidence that another Alfred Faucheux of another lineage took a wife of the same name, another Theresie Faucheux.

Frank,
I do believe you are correct. I looked at a Gene Pool Database @ancestyr.com and found that Theresie's father is listed as Pierre Faucheux and mother was Marie Felonese Laurent. I guess in 1870 they were living with Theresie's Father Pierre Faucheux and not the father of Albert. This is a very significant fact. Lets move this converstion to email. We can post our findings after we complete the verification of Louis Faucheux ancestors.
