I attended the Acadian Congres Mondial in 1999 in WBR Parish. I was told there would be a hundred year anniversary celebration called " Return to Your Roots" or something like that in BRUSLY in 2001...would anyone have any data regarding the plans for that? I live out of state and have not seen any references for this...Thanks.

There is a new book out called Brusly 1901-2001 - A Place to Call Home. This is a part of the celebration. I have a copy, its really interesting. I also have a Longuepee in my family.

You can buy a copy of the book from the Brusly Town Hall. They are $15 each and they'll mail it to you for an extra $4. If you don't have access to the address and phone number, let me know and I'll send it to you.

*THANK YOU* for your reply...Please count me in !

I may not be able to attend Monday, but defintely will be there Saturday and Sunday October 6 and 7. I hope that is not a problem but I live 300 miles away and I work on Monday.
But I would love to attend Saturday. and Sunday.

I would love to attend and bring * TULLIER * GIBSON *
* LONGUEPIE * and * BROUSSARD * Genealogy to exhibit. These families resided in West Baton Rouge Parish starting in 1785 and some still exist today. My Great-Great Grandparents are both buried at St. John Baptist Cemetery in Brusly and my Great-Grandfather was baptized there at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church..

I attended the Acadian Reunion in 1999 that was held in Port Allen and the Mass that was held that Sunday at St. John the Baptist in Brusly. I spoke with many of the people that had the Genealogy exhibits in the classrooms at the school.
It was a wonderful reunion that I really enjoyed.

Thank you so very much!

Hi...I would like to correspond with anyone having any connections to any of my GIBSON ancestors in WBR Parish.

William GIBSON and Marie MacKENNA / Mc HENRY had their 5 children baptized in 1803 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Baton Rouge. They were as follows: Marie GIBSON married Jerome HEBERT, Elizabeth GIBSON married Julien LeJEUNE, Juan Isaac GIBSON married Euphrosine TEMPLET, William GIBSON married Zepheline HEBERT,
and Juan Baptiste GIBSON, no marriage data.

My efforts to tace this family have been fruitless. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Janice: The story goes something like this, as detailed in an unpublished booklet by Estelle Alston Ricchiuto and Jocelyn Myhand Garuthreaux called Myhand Family - Roots and Branches. John Isaac Gibson was one of the children of William and Marie MacKenna Gibson. They worked on a boat which plyed the Mississippi River. They had friends in the Port Allen area, and visited them when his boat stopped there. One time he brought the children with him and left them with some friends there, saying their mother had died. Eventually, after not hearing from Mr. Gibson for some time and assuming he had died, the family adopted them and they were baptized in the Catholic Church.

One of John Gibson's daughters, Estelle, married Crawford Henry Myhand. I am Estelle's 2nd great grandson, as their daughter Melissa married Louis Gilbert Hebert, my g-grandfather.

If you notify me, I will try to put you in touch with Ms. Ricchiuto, who lives in California, or Ms. Gauthreaux.

Vincent, I assume we are cousins of some sort. My line is from William, my great grandfather and John Isaac's brother. For years I've searched for William Gibson (the first) and could not find any leads on him and now I hear this. Write me at ellerdabet@cs.com
