Ogden Family in Louisiana

Ogden Family in Louisiana

Hello,

My husband's great grandmother Sarah Ann Ogden was born in Carleton? New Orleans on 19 Nov 1849. Her parents were John Ogden and Eliza Kershaw. They had returned to England by April 1851. Her father was "turner in iron" according to the 1851 English census he later was an engineer not the modern usage of the term. He may have live in Louisiana from about 1848. There could have been 2 other children with them Elizabeth and William. William may have died there. Can anyone please help?

Carrollton, Jefferson Parish, Louisiana
census was taken August 20, 1850 pages 1-33
I didn't not find any Odgen listed.
Did you find them on a passenger list?

Later I will search Jefferson City, Jefferson Parish to see
if they might be on that census list.

Good luck in your search.

Thanks for your reply. I gather there aren't any parish records to look up. How I know she was born in Louisiana was by the English census and Swedish records where she went to live after England. Some records have New Orleans as a place of birth. I also looked in the 1850 census and found nothing but the family could have returned to the UK by then.
