Thank you!

Do you have any primary sources to confirm that, or where did you search to find that information?

May I ask where did you come up with his birth date of 1847.
Elphege Arcadius Riche b. Jan. 18, 1856 in Avoyelles Parish, La. s/o Elphege Arcadius Riche & Helene Lemoine. A phone call to St. Paul's Catholic Church is all that is needed to acquire a baptismal record. Give them this information: Bapt. bk. 6 & & 1850-1872 p. 125.

Looks like on the 1900 Census form his widow lists herself as "Mrs. Arcadius I Riche" and I missed that. So yes, my 1847 date is incorrect.

Still learning.....
