I am a descendant of Marie Louise Lemelle, born in Opelousas in 1820. She married William Landry Wale from Rapides Parish. I want to find out more about her and her family, but I have very few leads. I would appreciate any help you can give me.
Thanks, Bill Wale (wwale@aol.com)

Dear Georgia,
Thank you so much for your response. Unfortunately, the Marie Louise Lemelle I'm looking for was born in 1826 around Opelousas. She married my great-great grandfather, William Landry WALE, and died in Rapides Parish on February 10, 1884. I would love to know what family she came from. Were there many Lemelles in Opelousas? I assume they were all Creoles of color. Is that true? If I came to Louisiana to do research in Opelousas, where would I go? You were the first contact with the Lemelle family I have had. Again, thank you so much.

HI BILL,
THERE IS A LARGE CONCENTRATION OF LEMELLE'S
IN THE OPELOUSAS AND LEONVILLE, LOUISIANA AREA. THE ST. LANDRY PARISH COURTHOUSE WOULD BE A GOOD PLACE TO START SEARCHING.

Bill: You may want to read "Creoles of Color in the Bayou Country," by Brasseaux et al., University Press of Mississippi Jackson, which includes a great deal of information on the Lemelle family, including several Marie Louise Lemelles.

I believe I'm related to Patricia Lemelle and my family is from the Opelusas area - I'm just beginning an ancestry search and would like a reply to this message if you are able to help.
