I am trying to locate the family of Telesphos Poche, my grandfather. He had a brother Octave Poche that was an attorney during and after the Civil War. I once found a diary in the Library that Octave wrote, but I have not seen a copy since, nor can I locate any geneology.
My grandmother was Louisiana Marie Matherne.
Mr. Poche died at about 22 years of age from apendix.
The family home is still in St James Parish , however most of the land is gone.
I do not know where he is buried, but I have reason to believe it is in the graveyard at the Catholic Church at Convent.
I have a sister-in-law in Metarie, Barbara Spencer. She is well know in Real Estate. She has done some research.
If you have any info, please forward.
