Descendants of Josephine Dedeaux

Descendants of Josephine Dedeaux

I am trying to locate my relatives from my paternal grandmother, Sylvania Dedeaux, who was born in Harrison Co. MS, in 1896. She died in approximately 1931. The only written record, which I have been able to locate, thus far, is the 1900 U.S. Census. It lists her mother as Josephine Dedeaux,a widow, born in 1855. It also lists the following siblings and the year of their birth:Lena (1879);Samuel(1880);Mary(1886);Manuel(1890);Oscar(1892);Lilly(1893);Henry (1898). The census document states that both of Josephine's parents were form Louisana. I believe that Sam married Ada Harris in 1901 and that they resided in Handsboro. They had children named Morice, Samuel or Nuel,Inell and Elinor. This informaiton is from both the 1920 and 1930 census. It appears that Sam had died by the time that the 1920 census took place. It also appears as if Oscar and Lena may have married individuals from Harrison Co. These are her only siblings about whom I have been able to find some additional information. I know that the Dedeaux family resided in and around Pass Christian. I have found that there a large number of Dedeauxs in this area. I also believe that my grandmother had relatives in Bond MS, because she and my grandfather lived in the area, for a period of time after they were married. I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who may be a descendant of any of these relatives or who may be able to provide me with informaiton which may be helpful.

I am not sure if you already have the information I have but will be happy to share what I have. My research indicates there were 14 children born of Josephine Saucier and Joseph Dedeaux, one of which was Salvinia "Selena" Dedeaux in 1896. The list of these children include Lucina "Lena", John Nore, Samuel, Martial (Manuel?), Oscar, Lilly "Alida", and Henry to name a few. My information shows Samuel died in 1919.
If this helps and you need more info, send me an e-mail at:

Hi,

Thank you for responding to my inquiry. If your grand father is Eugene Dedeaux, then we may be related. Do you know what county or town Eugene was born or raised in? After my initial inquiry, I was contacted by a Dedeaux who has done exhaustive research on the origins of the family. She has traced them back to two brothers who migrated to southern Mississippi from a town in France. She provided me with a tremendous amount of information, which I would be happy to share with you, if you are interested.

What would be most helpful is to provide me with the names of as many of Eugene's Dedeaux ancestors as possible. My grandmother was a Dedeaux and, thanks to the lady who I previosuly mentioned, I have a complete list of the names of all of her siblings. I would like to try to determine if you are a descendant of one of them.

If you don't mind doing so, would you let me know the city and state in which you live. I reside in Detroit, Michigan. I think that I have traced a child of one of my grandmother's brothers to Los Angeles, where he died in 1977 or 1978.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi,

I might have a descendant named Edward Dedeaux. The Josephine Dedeaux that I am inquiring about, my great grandmother, was married to a man named Joseph. At this time, I don't know his father's name. She is listed, in the 1900 Federal Census, as being a widow. Based upon the number of children which she had, as well as the age of the eldest child, it is unlikely that her husband was born in 1864. Do you know where Joseph and Edward lived? I have been contacted by someone, through this source, who has done extensive research on the Dedeauxes, tracing them back to two brothers who immigrated to Mississippi from France.
