Hi Margaret, thanks for your reply. I do not have much information, most of it has come from census records and online sources, that I have pieced together. Yes, Clementine and Delville were sisters. What I can find on Zenon (II) he married Emily or Emelie Piper census records show them to both be mulatto. I know there is some discussion as to the definition of mulatto at this time period. I always heard, as a child, Emily was Indian. 1870 census shows her and her parents as mulatto. Just trying to find out of the rumors were true. Eventually two of the Gauthier girls married two Howard guys and moved to Texas. These are my ggrandparents and gg aunt and uncle.
