I'm sorry, but you are mistaken. The information was sent to me years ago from Canada, along with other documentation and the LeBlanc family and the LaTour family.

She was born July 05, 1649 in LA ROCHELLE, CHARENTE-MARITIM, FRANCE, and died June 1703 in CAP-DE-LA-MADELEINE, CHAMPLAIN, QUEBEC, CANADA.

Notes for NICOLAS DIT LABRIE LEBLANC:


WHO WERE THE LEBLANC QUEBEC ANCESTORS

WHO WERE THE ACADIAN LEBLANC ANCESTORS



THE QUEBEC LEBLANC ANCESTORS


Several LeBlanc immigrants came to settle in New France (Quebec). The first, but
not the least, was a Normand with the first name of JEAN; at Quebec on 21
November 1643, he married Madeleine NICOLET with whom he had 5 children; only
their daughter Madeleine had a family. Jean LEBLANC was killed by the Iroquois
on the Ile d'Orleans on 11 September 1662.

Then came the Limousin, Leonard LeBlanc, master mason, married to Marie RITON on
23 August 1650, at Beauport, Quebec; Nicolas LEBLANC dit LABRIE, who married
Madeleine DUTEAU on 2 November 1664, at Cap-de-la-Madeleine; Jacques LEBLANC,
married to Suzanne ROUSSELIN on 6 June 1660, at Montreal. This couple raised 9
children at Charlesbourg.

Elisabeth ROY, widow of Pierre PAILLEREAU, accepted Antoine LEBLANC, dit
Jolicoeur as her husband on 26 January 1670, at Sainte-Famille on the Ile
d'Orleans. They had five children.

A breton named Pierre LEBLANC, dit GRANDMAISON, allied himself with the DOMINGO
family by marrying Elisabeth, at Quebec in 1720. Their children were raised at
l'Islet.

Should it still be necessary to extend the list by mentioning another Antoine
LEBLANC, soldier in the LaRonde company, married to Marguerite LEGER at Quebec
in 1729? The cook Andre LEBLANC, born about 1731, son of Andre and of
Marie-Josephte REAUME, from Saint-Nizier, diocese of Lyon, was married at QuTbec
on 12 November 1766, to Marie-JosFphte BEAUGIS; then in a second marriage on 15
November 1773 at RiviFre-Ouelle, to Genevieve BOUCHARD, daughter of Joseph and
of Marie-Dorothie OUELLET.

Finally, Georges LEBLANC, son of Jean and of Marie-Therese AVISSE, from
Cahagnolles, diocese of Bayeux in Normandy, went to l'Islet on 31 January he
married Charlotte BELANGER, daughter of Charles and of Jeanne EMOND. We know
that Georges was ceded a piece of land on 15 May 1750 on the eleventh range of
Saint-Jean-Port-Joli. This couple had a son Joseph, who established his own
family.

Such was the great Leblanc river which flowed and still flows in America,
beginning from New France.(Quebec)



THE ACADIAN LEBLANC ANCESTOR



The roots of the LEBLANC families are diverse in New France. (Quebec) In Acadia,
there was only ONE, but its numerous derivations stretch across all of Canada,
the United States and into Louisiana. The LEBLANCS are to the land of Evangeline
what the Smiths are to the United States or the Tremblays are to the land of
Dollard, the Sieur des Orneaux.



Daniel LEBLANC is held responsible for this respectable Acadian line.
Unfortunately, the French origins of the father of this small group of people
are difficult to specify. There are many hypotheses as to where Daniel came from
but none of them can be proven today. The Great Deportation of the Acadians
carried away with it many important documents, records and registers.



PORT-ROYAL



In 1605, Frantois GRAVE, Sieur du Pont, and Samuel de CHAMPLAIN founded
Port-Royal located at the mouth of the Annapolis River. The settlement was made
up of buildings grouped around a central court yard. In the summer of 1607, the
site was abandoned and l'ordre du bon temps, abolished. Biencourt de
POUTRINCOURT, in 1610, re-established the colony; but, three years later, the
English pirate Samuel ARGALL destroyed this settlement from top to bottom.

Finally, Port-Royal was returned to French jurisdiction. Inspite of its crude
buildings, Port-Royal appeared as the first lasting European settlement in North
America, north of Saint Augustine, Florida. It was Isaac de RAZILLY, a ship's
captain and chevalier of Malta, who in 1632 led about 300 soldiers and colonists
who settled at La Febvre and in the neighboring area.

Less than 20 years later, it was at Port-Royal that Daniel LEBLANC wanted to put
down the foundation of his house. He was about 24 years old at the time and
quite audacious. He decided to establish his residence on the north bank of the
Port-Royal river, called today the Annapolis River, northeast of
marais-a-Belisle, about 13 kilometers above the fort of Port-Royal and nearly a
little less than a kilometer below the chapel of Saint-Laurent.

Father Archange GODBOUT, O.F.M., the very respected genealogist, believes that
Daniel LeBlanc went to Acadia before 1650. Frantoise Gaudet, his wife, belonged
to a well-established family at Port-royal; its head, Jean Gaudet, had been
known in the region since 1636. Frantoise was the widow of a husband named
Mercier and the mother of a daughter named Marie.



AT WORK AND IN ORDEAL?



The founders of the Acadian people were valiant and brave, but also they were a
people stricken, disturbed and troubled by various allegiances.

The colonists of Port-Royal had barely begun to reorganize themselves when in
1654 the place was again taken by the English. At that time there were about 200
inhabitants. From 1654 to 1664, there was no resident missionary at Port-Royal.
The nearest Jesuits lived at Miscou. The Treaty of Breda, signed in 1667,
granted territorial and commercial advanted to France and Acadia back to France.
According to Placide GAUDET, it was only in 1670 that the French authorities
truly began their duties.

May we imagine the frustration and the anguish which the Acadian colonists
endured? The climate of the area was certainly, clement. One could easily live
from fishing, hunting, trading, and farming. However, it was in this disturbed
and divided land, that Daniel LeBlanc and his family lived. At the end of their
life, in 1690, PHIPS reconquered Acadia in the name of Albion. It was only
returned to France in 1697 by the Treaty of Ryswick. During the War of the
Spanish Succession (1701-1713), other set-backs awaited this beautiful land. It
finally passed to England in 1713, on the occasion of the Treaty of Utrecht.
Port-Royal was renamed Annapolis Royal. All members of the LEBLANC line remember
it.



CENSUS of 1671



After the Treaty of Breda and the return of French authority, the Acadian
population began to scatter. There was a census.

In 1671, Port-royal counted 68 families: 63 men and as many women, 5 widows and
227 children. The livestock was made up of 829 head of cattle and 399 sheep. It
seems that there were 417 arpents of workable land.

Daniel LEBLANC, 45 years old, and his 48 year old wife, Frantoise GAUDET, were
listed in the census under the category of workers. They owned 18 head of cattle
and 26 sheep. Their cleared lands were 10 arpents "in two places". The neighbors
named: Michel POIRIER and Vincent BRAULT. The list of the inhabitants was drawn
up by Laurent MOLINS, a Franciscan priest. On 8 November 1671, Hughes RANDIN
(1628-1680(, from QuTbec, drew up the summary of this work before sending it to
Jean-Baptiste COLBERT, Secretary of State and Navy Secretary, at the residence
of the king.

Is it possible to obtain other details on this LeBlanc family?



THE LEBLANC FAMILY



The census of 1671 provides us with the names of the SEVEN children of Daniel
and Francoise: Jacques, Frantoise, Etienne, Rene, Andre, Antoine and the
youngest, Pierre. They were between the ages of 20 and 7. Were there other
children who had died in infancy? There is no way to know. The historians have
noted, however, that the infant mortality rate was very low in Acadian. There
were no epidemics as in New France.(Quebec)

Jacques LEBLANC, the eldest, was born about 1651. At Port-Royal abt 1673, he
married Catherine HEBERT, daugther of Antoine and Genevieve LEFRANC. This family
settled at Grand-Pre, Saint-Charles-des-Mines, where they saw 13 children born,
including the youngest Bernard who became a royal notary.

The eldest of the daughters, and the only daugther, Frantoise, was the first to
enter the state of matrimony by marrying Martin BLANCHARD, son of Jean and
Radegonde LAMBERT, in 1671.. Frantoise died rather young since her husband was
married a second time about 1686, to Marguerite GUILLEBEAULT, daughter of Pierre
and of Catherine TERRIOT. Martin BLANCHARD was a hardworking and an enterprising
man. In 1701, he sold his property to his son Rene, issue of Francoise LeBlanc.
He left Port-Royal to join in the fortune of Mathieu MARTIN, provisional
seigneur of Wecobequit.

As for Etienne LEBLANC, he was involved in navigation. His destiny is unknown.
His brother Rene was allied to the great Bourgeois family by marrying Anne,
daughter of Jacques and of Jeanne TRAHAN. The historian Adrien BERGERON reports
that the couple brought 6 children into the world, including Rene, junior, who
became a notary. Rene LEBLANC, a notary immortalized by Henry Wadsworth
LONGFELLOW in his poem Evangeline, (can be found on this web site) had 3
children himself from his first wife and 17 from his second, including triplets
born in 1721.

Andre, also born at Port-Royal about 1659, became the husband of Marie DUGAS,
daughter of Abraham and of Marguerite DOUCET. This family settled at Grand-Pre
where ten children were born.

His brother Antoine LEBLANC was also married to a BOURGEOIS, Marie, sister of
Anne, wife of Rene LEBLANC. They had ten children.

The six sons of Daniel LEBLANC and Frantoise GAUDET had 46 known children [35
GRANDSONS]...a researcher has counted 52 of them.. who produced 200 others. And
thus was the beginning of the birth of a people very widespread today in Canada
and in the United States. There were but two at the starting line; they became a
multitude at the finish.



AT THE END OF THE CENTURY



Daniel LEBLANC was the wise and venerable ancestor who knew how to win the
respect and gratitude of his compatriots.

"When on 24 May 1690 Sir William PHIPS, who had just taken possession of the
place, required that some habitants of Port-Royal and those of the river by the
same name chose six among them to form a Council in order to keep peace among
them and to administer the court, Daniel LEBLANC was one who was chosen."

Father Adrien BERGERON continued his eulogy when he reported that the most
important document that they had concerning Daniel LEBLANC was that of the
statement of the work carried out in Acadia by Sieur d'Aulnay; the report was
drawn up on 15 October 1684 by the notable people of Port-Royal, recorded and
certified at Parish on 27 December 1688. the signers of the document were
Louis-Alexandre Des FRICHES de Meneval, then governor for the King of all
Acadia, and Father Louis PETIT, grand vicar of the diocese of Quebec, curate of
Port-Royal.

Ancestor Daniel LEBLANC died between 1693 and 1698. History, sometimes cruel,
has not even remembered the day of his death at Port-Royal. Francoise GAUDET,
widow in a first marriage to a man named MERCIER, responsible for a daughter
Marie MERCIER, was a mother 7 times with Daniel LEBLANC, She died at the home of
her son Pierre, between 1698 and 1700.

The measurement of the life of men is neither material accumulated nor money in
the bank, but the value of his acts, his heart and soul. DANIEL and FRANCOISE,
you were good and generous, without measure.

Acadian LEBLANCS have made themselves notable in several professions such as
medicine, journalism, law, government, etc. Their sons and daughters are found
in several religious communites. Among the priests, three reached episcopate.
The first, Msgr Edouard-Alfred LEBLANC occupied the episcopal seat of Saint
John, New Brunswick, from 1912 to 1935, as fifth bishop of this diocese founded
on 4 May 1842. He was born at Saint-Bernard in Nova Scotia on 15 October 1870.
His parents were Luc LEBLANC, farmer and Julie BELLIVEAU.

His Excellence Msgr Albini LEBLANC was first named Bishop of Hearst, Ontario, in
1940, then of Gaspe where he exercised his episcopal authority from 1945 until
1957, the year of his accidental death.

Msgr Camille-Andre LEBLANC was named Bishop of Bathurst, New Brunswick, on 25
July 1942, and inducted into his function on 8 September of the same year, the
birthday of the Virgin Mary. He retired on 8 January 1969.


The LEBLANCS are more than a name; they are an admirable people.

THE LEBLANC FAMILY



The census of 1671 provides us with the names of the SEVEN children of Daniel
and Francoise: Jacques, Francoise, Etienne, Rene, Andre, Antoine and the
youngest, Pierre. They were between the ages of 20 and 7. Were there other
children who had died in infancy? There is no way to know. The historians have
noted, however, that the infant mortality rate was very low in Acadian. There
were no epidemics as in New France.(Quebec)

Jacques LEBLANC, the eldest, was born about 1651. At Port-Royal abt 1673, he
married Catherine HEBERT, daugther of Antoine and Genevieve LEFRANC. This family
settled at Grand-Pre, Saint-Charles-des-Mines, where they saw 13 children born,
including the youngest Bernard who became a royal notary.

The eldest of the daughters, and the only daugther, Francoise, was the first to
enter the state of matrimony by marrying Martin BLANCHARD, son of Jean and
Radegonde LAMBERT, in 1671.. Francoise died rather young since her husband was
married a second time about 1686, to Marguerite GUILLEBEAULT, daughter of Pierre
and of Catherine TERRIOT. Martin BLANCHARD was a hardworking and an enterprising
man. In 1701, he sold his property to his son Rene, issue of Francoise LeBlanc.
He left Port-Royal to join in the fortune of Mathieu MARTIN, provisional
seigneur of Wecobequit.

As for Etienne LEBLANC, he was involved in navigation. His destiny is unknown.
His brother Rene was allied to the great Bourgeois family by marrying Anne,
daughter of Jacques and of Jeanne TRAHAN. The historian Adrien BERGERON reports
that the couple brought 6 children into the world, including Rene, junior, who
became a notary. Rene LEBLANC, a notary immortalized by Henry Wadsworth
LONGFELLOW in his poem Evangeline, (can be found on this web site) had 3
children himself from his first wife and 17 from his second, including triplets
born in 1721.

Andre, also born at Port-Royal about 1659, became the husband of Marie DUGAS,
daughter of Abraham and of Marguerite DOUCET. This family settled at Grand-Pre
where ten children were born.

His brother Antoine LEBLANC was also married to a BOURGEOIS, Marie, sister of
Anne, wife of Rene LEBLANC. They had ten children.

The six sons of Daniel LEBLANC and Frantoise GAUDET had 46 known children [35
grandSONS]...a researcher has counted 52 of them.. who produced 200 others. And
thus was the beginning of the birth of a people very widespread today in Canada
and in the United States. There were but two at the starting line; they became a
multitude at the finish.



AT THE END OF THE CENTURY



Daniel LEBLANC was the wise and venerable ancestor who knew how to win the
respect and gratitude of his compatriots.

"When on 24 May 1690 Sir William PHIPS, who had just taken possession of the
place, required that some habitants of Port-Royal and those of the river by the
same name chose six among them to form a Council in order to keep peace among
them and to administer the court, Daniel LEBLANC was one who was chosen."

Father Adrien BERGERON continued his eulogy when he reported that the most
important document that they had concerning Daniel LEBLANC was that of the
statement of the work carried out in Acadia by Sieur d'Aulnay; the report was
drawn up on 15 October 1684 by the notable people of Port-Royal, recorded and
certified at Parish on 27 December 1688. the signers of the document were
Louis-Alexandre Des FRICHES de Meneval, then governor for the King of all
Acadia, and Father Louis PETIT, grand vicar of the diocese of Quebec, curate of
Port-Royal.

Ancestor Daniel LEBLANC died between 1693 and 1698. History, sometimes cruel,
has not even remembered the day of his death at Port-Royal. Francoise GAUDET,
widow in a first marriage to a man named MERCIER, responsible for a daughter
Marie MERCIER, was a mother 7 times with Daniel LEBLANC, She died at the home of
her son Pierre, between 1698 and 1700.

The measurement of the life of men is neither material accumulated nor money in
the bank, but the value of his acts, his heart and soul. DANIEL and FRANCOISE,
you were good and generous, without measure.

Acadian LEBLANCS have made themselves notable in several professions such as
medicine, journalism, law, government, etc. Their sons and daughters are found
in several religious communites. Among the priests, three reached episcopate.
The first, Msgr Edouard-Alfred LEBLANC occupied the episcopal seat of Saint
John, New Brunswick, from 1912 to 1935, as fifth bishop of this diocese founded
on 4 May 1842. He was born at Saint-Bernard in Nova Scotia on 15 October 1870.
His parents were Luc LEBLANC, farmer and Julie BELLIVEAU.

His Excellence Msgr Albini LEBLANC was first named Bishop of Hearst, Ontario, in
1940, then of Gaspe where he exercised his episcopal authority from 1945 until
1957, the year of his accidental death.

Msgr Camille-Andre LEBLANC was named Bishop of Bathurst, New Brunswick, on 25
July 1942, and inducted into his function on 8 September of the same year, the
birthday of the Virgin Mary. He retired on 8 January 1969.

The LEBLANCS are more than a name; they are an admirable people!

(Syllabus.)

1. Searches and Seizuresm ---- Sufficiency of Facts Stated in Affidavit for Search
Warrant. Where an affidavit to procure a search warrant is in positive terms,
one will not be permitted to go behind the affidavit and show the officers did
not have sufficient knowledge of the charges alleged in the affidavit.

2. Same ---- Sufficiency of Description of Premises in Search Warrant. The
description of the house to be searched, the names of the occupants of the
premises, together with the legal description set forth in the search warrant,
should all be read together; and if the same are sufficient to enable the
officers executing the search warrant to locate the premises to be searched
without the aid of any other information save that contained in the warrant, the
same is sufficient.

3. Witnesses ---- Status of Defendant on Witness Stand. A defendant by availing
himself of the privilege of testifying in his own behalf, waives his
constitutional privilege of remaining silent and has all the rights and is
subject to the same rules of cross-examination and impeachment as other
witnesses.

Page 281

4. Same ---- Proof of Prior Conviction of Defendant to Affect His Credibility ù
Cross-Examination The statute, 12 O.S. 1941 º 381 [12-381], permits proof of a
prior conviction of the defendant in a criminal case for the purpose of
affecting his credibility as a witness. This proof may be made either by the
record or on cross examination of the defendant.

5. Intoxicating Liquors ---- Forfeitures of Police Court Bond Tantamount to Plea of
Guilty. Where police court bond forfeitures are deliberately made, in cases
involving unlawful possession of intoxicating liquor, they are tantamount to a
plea of guilty and should be so regarded.

6. Appeal and Error ---- Ordinarily, Error not Predicated Upon Opening Statements
of Prosecuting Attorney to Jury. Ordinarily, error cannot be predicated upon the
opening statement of a prosecuting attorney to the jury, specifically stating
what facts he expects to develop in testimony, where later, for some reason, he
fails to introduce evidence to support some of the narrative related in the
opening statement, unless such unsupported portions of the opening statement
were made in bad faith and were manifestly prejudicial.

7. Trial ---- Appeal and Error ---- Case Not Reversed Because of Improper Conduct of
County Attorney Where Guilt Clear. Where the guilt of the defendant is clear,
and there is no reason to believe that the jury could have arrived at any other
verdict than guilty. Criminal Court of Appeals will not reverse the case because
of the alleged improper conduct of the county attorney.

8. Witnesses ---- Trial ---- Permitting County Attorney to Endorse Additional Name of
Witness on Information at Time of Trial not Error. It is not an abuse of
judicial discretion, and reversible error, in a misdemeanor case, for the trial
court, over the objection of the defendant, to permit the county attorney to
endorse name of witness on the information, at the time of trial, and to permit
such witness to testify in chief for the state, where another witness is
endorsed thereon and where the additional witness' testimony is merely
cumulative, and the facts to which he testified are later admitted by the
defendant.

Appeal from Superior Court, Okmulgee County; J.I. Pitchford, Judge.
Stella LeBlanc was convicted of unlawful possession of intoxicating liquor, and
she appeals. Affirmed.

Tom Payne, Okmulgee, for plaintiff in error.
Mac Q. Williamson, Atty. Gen., and James P. Garrett, Asst. Atty. Gen., for
defendant in error.

BRETT, P.J.

Plaintiff in error Stella LeBlanc, defendant below, was charged in the superior
court of Okmulgee county, Oklahoma, with the offense of unlawful possession of
intoxicating liquor, to wit, 10 bottles of non-tax paid whiskey consisting of
pints and half pints. The defendant was tried by a jury, convicted, her
punishment set at 30 days in jail and a $50 fine; and judgment and sentence
entered accordingly.

The defendant attacks the evidence by motion to suppress on the grounds it was
unlawfully obtained. One of the contentions urged herein on this ground is that
the affidavit upon which the search warrant was obtained, under which the search
was conducted, was fraudulent, a subterfuge and a predicate for an unlawful
search. In other words, it is contended the officers did not have sufficient
knowledge to make the allegations charged in the affidavit. We have repeatedly
held that, where an affidavit to procure a search warrant is in positive terms,
one will not be permitted to go behind the affidavit and show the officers did
not have sufficient knowledge of the charges alleged in the affidavit. Hughes v.
State, 85 Okla. Cr. 25, 184 P.2d 625. See the numerous cases cited therein in
support of the rule.

The second proposition urged by the defendant is that the search and seizure was
unlawful in that the description of the place to be searched as

Page 282

described in the search warrant was defective. The place described in the search
warrant was as follows, to wit, "that certain quantities of intoxicating liquors
belonging to Stella LeBlanc are now being kept in the white frame house used by
her as a home and place of public resort located 1120 East Second St. in the
city of Okmulgee, Okmulgee County, Oklahoma,". Two officers testified they did
not know what was the color of the defendant's house. The defendant testified
her house was not white but buff and green and on cross-examination she
testified her house was located at 1120 East Second Street, Okmulgee, Oklahoma,
as described in the search warrant. The record shows no other house was searched
and it is not disputed that the place searched was 1120 East Second and that it
was the defendant's house. It therefore makes no difference what color the house
was if the description in the search warrant is sufficient to enable the
officers executing the search warrant to locate the premises to be searched,
without the aid of any other information save that contained in the search
warrant. Hughes v. State, 83 Okla. Cr. 16, 172 P.2d 435; Kutz v. State, 83 Okla.
Cr. 324, 177 P.2d 139. The color of the house therefore was immaterial since the
number and street correctly described the place to be searched and the officer
unfamiliar with the location of the defendant's place could have found it from
the description contained in the search warrant without seeking aid from any
other source than that set out in the warrant. Furthermore, in this connection
the defendant complained that the lot and block number was not used in the
search warrant. This contention is wholly without merit in light of the
foregoing authorities, particularly in the Kutz case supra, there was no
description by lot and block number, nor did the warrant contain the street
number of defendant's premises but it was held sufficient because the
description contained therein was sufficient to enable the officer to find the
defendant's premises without aid to any other information other than that
contained in the search warrant. In Hughes v. State, supra, this court said:

"The settled rule as to a sufficient description in a search warrant has been
stated as follows in Pitzer v. State, 69 Okla. Cr. 363, 103 P.2d 109; `The
description of the house to be searched, the names of the occupants of the
premises, together with the legal description set forth in the search warrant,
should all be read together; and if the same are sufficient to enable the
officer executing the search warrant to locate the premises to be searched
without the aid of any other information save that contained in the warrant, the
same is sufficient."

Thus the description is entirely sufficient.

The defendant's third contention is that the trial court erred in permitting the
county attorney to show on cross-examination of defendant, prior municipal court
bond forfeitures in other liquor charges lodged against the defendant in the
city court. The defendant contends the record would have been the best evidence
thereof. Such is not the case on cross-examination of defendant concerning a
matter within his personal knowledge. The defendant admitted she posted bonds
for liquor violations and forfeited them in the municipal court. Having taken
the stand in her own behalf she came within the rule of Storer v. State, 84
Okla. Cr. 176, 180 P.2d 202, 207, as follows:

"A defendant by availing himself of the privilege of testifying in his own
behalf thus waives his constitutional privilege of remaining silent and has all
the rights and is subject to the same rules of cross-examination and impeachment
as other witnesses.

"The statute, 12 O.S. 1941 º 381 [12-381], permits proof of a prior conviction
of the defendant in a criminal case for the purpose of affecting his credibility
as a witness. This proof may be made either by the record or on
cross-examination of the defendant."

Such inquiry went to her credibility as a witness. Moreover in Chambless v.
State, 90 Okla. Cr. 423, 214 P.2d 947, and Wheatley v. State, 77 Okla. Cr. 122,

Page 283

139 P.2d 809, we held that the defendant may be interrogated on
cross-examination as to police court convictions for alleged possession of
whiskey, for the reason, such offenses constituted offenses under state law, and
such convictions go to the witness' credibility. We are of the opinion that,
where as herein, the police court bond forfeitures were deliberately made, in
cases involving unlawful possession of intoxicating liquor, such are tantamount
to a plea of guilty and should be so regarded. Hence the cross-examination
relative to the same is not improper as going to the witness' credibility.

Moreover, the cross-examination herein involved could not have been prejudicial
to the defendant in face of her admission of guilt as charged in the
information, and in view of Title 22, º 1068 [22-1068], O.S. 1951, since the
said evidence could not have resulted in a miscarriage of justice. Furthermore,
her defense is too weak to remove her from the provisions of Title 37, º 82
[37-82], O.S. 1951, in substance, providing that the keeping "in excess of one
quart of any spirituous, [etc.,] liquors * * * in or about his place of business
or his residence * * * shall be prima facie evidence of an intention to convey,
sell or otherwise dispose of such liquors * * *."

Likewise, in view of the provisions of Title 37, º 82 [37-82], O.S. 1951, there
can be no merit in the defendant's fifth contention that the trial court erred
in permitting the county attorney in his opening statement to say, "whiskey was
found in her possession with the unlawful intent to sell it". In this connection
it has been held in Duncan v. State, 89 Okla. Cr. 325, 207 P.2d 324, 327:

"Ordinarily, error cannot be predicated upon the opening statement of a
prosecuting attorney to the jury, specifically stating what facts he expects to
develop in testimony, where later, for some reason, he fails to introduce
evidence to support some of the narrative related in the opening statement,
unless such unsupported portions of the opening statement were made in bad faith
and were manifestly prejudicial."

Under the record herein made, the pleadings alleged possession for the purpose
of sale "or giving away". It is manifest under these conditions the statement
was not made in bad faith and under the allegations of the information and
admissions of the defendant, could not have been prejudicial.

The defendant's fifth contention is that the remarks of the county attorney in
his closing argument that the whiskey seized herein was "rot gut", and "the kind
of stuff that would make you blind", is not reversible error in light of the
defendant's objection and the trial court's order sustaining the objection and
his instruction to the jury not to consider the same. Furthermore, an excerpt
from arguments of counsel removed from the context of the argument and
unexplained is ordinarily not sufficient ground upon which to predicate a claim
of error, since the appellate court cannot determine whether the remark was
invited or provoked by opposing counsel. In Glasgow v. State, 88 Okla. Cr. 279,
202 P.2d 999, 1000, we said:

"Where the guilt of the defendant is clear, and there is no reason to believe
that the jury could have arrived at any other verdict than guilty, Criminal
Court of Appeals will not reverse the case because of the alleged improper
conduct of the County Attorney, but in the exercise of its discretion will
modify the penalty imposed and affirm the judgment of the lower court."
Furthermore, the verdict itself shows a lack of prejudice since the minimum fine
and jail sentence was imposed.

Finally, the defendant contends the trial court erred in permitting the state to
endorse the name of Sheriff Jim Kirby on the information after the jury had been
selected. It appears from the record herein that the name of Clede Cunningham,
deputy sheriff, was endorsed on the information, when this

Page 284

case was called for trial. When the case was called for trial the county
attorney asked leave to endorse the name of Mr. Kirby, sheriff of Okmulgee
county, on the information. To this request the defendant objected, for the
reason, "the case being on call". This objection was overruled, and rightfully
so. Sheriff Kirby's testimony was identical with that of Clede Cunningham, and
the unlawful possession of the intoxicating liquor was later admitted by the
defendant. The endorsement of the sheriff's name on the information, from an
evidentiary standpoint, was merely cumulative, and could not have prejudiced the
defendant's rights, since it would not constitute an infringement of any of her
rights in preparing her defense. Certainly such is the case in face of the
defendant's admission of possession of the liquor as charged. The endorsement of
Mr. Kirby as another witness on the information was a matter within the sound
judicial discretion of the trial court, and under the conditions herein
involved, and was not within the rule of Harding v. State, 95 Okla. Cr. 8, 238
P.2d 376. Therein, there were no witnesses endorsed on the information at the
time of trial. But that is not the case herein. Therefore, this case is clearly
distinguishable from the Harding case. Of course, if there had been no witnesses
endorsed on the information herein the rule in the Harding case would apply.
We are of the opinion that the defendant was admittedly guilty of a violation of
law and the jury could have arrived at no other verdict than that of guilty. For
all the foregoing reasons the judgment and sentence herein imposed is
accordingly affirmed.

Notes for ULIXES LEBLANC:


MULATTOES

In the UNITED STATES, "mulatto," a word of SPANISH and PORTUGUESE orgin, technically indentifies a progeny of one (1) black and one (1) white parent. Popularly, however, it signifies someone with any mixture of black and white ancestry. Debates over the categorization and status of mulattoes within the racial order in the UNITED STATES began during the colonial era and continued into the twentieth century.

DEAR MR. THOMAS,

I am sorry for the delay in sending you the information I have found on your
request. I have been out of the office for awhile. I was in Houston, TX with my
father, who has recently been diagnosed with cancer.

Ulysses Le Blanc born July 8, 1880 -- I did not find a baptism record. He
married Mary McCarthy Jan. 14, 1903, here at St. Landry Church volume 3, page
298. He also married Madalien Papillon, April 1909 volume 3, page 436. The
record states that he is the widower of Mary McCarthy. The death record for Mary
McCarthy is in volume XVI page 245, Jan. 1909.

William Le Blanc, Jr.--- I did not find baptism records or marriage records for.


Robert Le Blanc, born Dec. 16, 1890, baptized here at St. Landry in volume 7
page 212. He married Elmire Thibodeaux here in volume 3 page 409.

Joseph Le Blanc, born Feb. 13, 1893, was baptized here in volume 7 page 273. I
did not find a marriage record for him.

Henry Le Blanc, born Nov. 22, 1895, was baptized here in volume 7 page 332. I
did not find a marriage record for him. I searched the marriage index for Le
Blanc up to 1945.

I also found a record of a marriage of one William Le Blanc widower of Mary
Merante Pierre August---married Sarah Foard June 1907, in volume 3 page 396. I
think this is William Sr.

Ophelia La Tour was baptized in Eunice, LA at St. Anthony Catholic Church, who
address is P.O. Box 31, Eunice, LA 70535. The record is in volume 4 page 116.
Lee La Tour was also baptized in Eunice at St. Anthony in volume 5 page 52. You
will have to write to St. Anthony's Church for these records. The research was
one and a half hours, so the $14.00 you sent will cover the cost. The
certificates are $4.00 each. Please let me know which ones you would like to
have. I did not research death records for Robert, Joseph, or Henry Le Blanc. I
will await your reply.


Sincerely,
Jonie

Notes for WILMA LEE LEBLANC:


I am the great-grand daughter of Paulin Carriere, (1834- 1894) and Julie Savoy Carriere, (1846- ?). Paulin and Julie had six children: Paulin, Paul, Jules, Louis, Theophile and Constance Carriere, their only daughter. Theophile Carriere married Odile Hollier, daughter of Theodule Hollier (Jr.) and Frances Garland. Theodule Hollier is the son of Theodule Hollier (Sr.) and Adelaide Meilleon. Information regarding Frances Garland is vague; record of her marriage to Theodule Hollier reads “Frances Garland daughter of unknown Garland and unknown Hemley. Theodule and Frances were married December 10, 1868 in St. Landry Catholic Church in Opelousas, Louisiana. Only a picture of Frances remains but none of Theodule have been found.

When we started research on the family, there were those who remembered Frances as “old Mom”. Theodule and Frances had nine children: Charles, Arthur, “Buddy” Edward, Leonard, Clara, Mary Louise, Julia Hollier Carriere, Billy and Odile Hollier Carriere. Odile Hollier, my grandmother, married Theophile Carriere, son of Paulin Carriere and Julie Savoy. From this union 18 children were born, Joseph Melvin, Frances, Beatrice, Alma, Julia, Albertha, Charles Merritt, Theophile, Paul, Theodore, Lawrence, John, Helen, Eddie Randall, Margaret, Benjamin, Vincent and Mary Ruby. Julia Hollier, my great aunt, married Jessie Louis Carriere, nephew of Theophile Carriere. Julia Hollier Carriere and Odile Hollier Carriere, two sisters, married an uncle and his nephew.

June 16, 1997


Harrison Thomas

Muskogee, Ok 74403


Dear Mr. Thomas:

As promised, the information you gave me has been reviewed by the staff.
However, I regret to tell you that this office will not be able to represent you
in your proposed lawsuit over your MOTHER'S PROPERTY.

Because we have a very small legal staff, we cannot accept all of the
applications we receive. This office is required to consider acceptance of cases
according to the priorities set up by our BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

The highest priority cases must be accepted first. The highest priorities are
the "basic necessities of life" such a shelter, medical care, food, income, and
freedom from physical abuse. The type of assistance you are requesting is not
ordinarily a high priority case so thiss office is unable to assist you other
than giving you the legal advice you have already receivedand the writing of a
letter to the BUYER as you and I discussed this morning.

A copy of that letter is enclosed. This letter merely puts MR. SELF ON "NOTICE"
of your allegations as to your SISTER, KATHY. It does not, however, give anyone
else notice that there is a PROBLEM with the last DEED because as the COUNTY
CLERK'S RECORDS STAND NOW, it appears that your MOTHER SIGNED THE DEED.

Although there are several methods to attack this PROBLEM, you should consider
filing a PROBATE of your MOTHER'S ESTATE. Then, within that case the issue of
the DEED could be addressed. If you and the heirs pooled your money, then none
of you would be struck with the entire attorney fee. However, you need to
consider the cost of such a lawsuit ans whether or not they outweigh the
possible return to each of you.

At this point, you can't even go to SMALL CLAIMS COURT and sue your SISTER for
your "SHARE" of the profit on the sale of the house because before the PROBATE
COURT determines who the HEIRS ARE, you just have the expectancy of becoming an
HEIR. If your MOTHER dies without a WILL, then under OKLAHOMA LAW her surviving
SPOUSE AND CHILDREN would be HEIRS however.

THOMAS LETTER, JUNE 16, 1997 PAGE 2 OF 2

If you have any questions about this decision, please feel free to contact the
MANAGING ATTORNEY, LEOLA SCHUMACHER at (918)-683-5681 or 1-800-725-5681.

If this office can be of any other assistance to you, pleas feal free to
recontact us. I hope this information has been helpful to you.

Notes for KING HARRISON THOMAS LATOUR:
ROYALTY

THE INSTITUTION OF ROYALTY is highly symbolic. Many ASIAN COURTS were laid out as microcosms of the universe, with the throne, at the center of the palace, representing the sacred mountain at the axis of the world. A KING had four (4) CHIEF QUEENS and four (4) CHIEF MINISTERS, symbolizing NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, and WEST. The health of the nation and the land depended on his health. In parts of AFRICA and SOUTHERN INDIA the KING was ritually sacrificed while still strong and virile, so that the shedding of his blood might renew the fertility of the soil and thus ensure the well-being of his people. KINGS have been widely believed to rule by divine right, and in some cultures to be semi-divine.
_____________________________________________

THE KING

THE KING is the ultimate symbol of power. Traditionally the monarch was surrounded by courtiers, who had the same function as the heavenly beings surrounding GOD. He was was thus seen by his subjects as an earthly counterpart of GOD and a symbolic link between heavenly and earthly power. The KING is also a symbol of consciousness, the RULER over our unconscious urges.
______________________________________________

THE ORB - GERMAN

THE ORB is composed of a globe, representing the world, with a cross on top, which symbolizes the KING'S spiritual authority over his subjects, mirroring that of GOD over mankind. The KING symbolically holds the whole world in his hand.
_______________________________________________

THE CROWN

THE CROWN made of precious metal and jewel, a crown symbolizes sovereignty. It adorns the noblest part of a person, the head, or intellect. JESUS was crowned with an ironic CROWN OF THORNS. A crown also denotes supreme accomplishment as in "crowning glory."
_________________________________________________

THE SCEPTER - PRUSSIAN

THE SCEPTER was once believed to have magical properties, much like a magic wand, and is a phallic symbol. THE ORB and SCEPTER together symbolize completeness and the creative power of male and female.
__________________________________________________

THE AMPULLA & SPOON

THE AMPULLA & SPOON, the new monarch is anointed with HOLY OIL, poured into teh anointing spoon from the AMPULLA, here in the shape of an eagle.
__________________________________________________

THE CROWN JEWELS

THE CROWN JEWELS, the essential accoutrements of ROYAL OFFICE, have assumed almost mystical significance for a ruling monarch. Without them, he or she would lose all authority. The CROWN JEWELS, ORB, and SCEPTER are essential in the coronation ceremony, when they are worn or carried by the newly crowned monarch.
