I found your note re: Centerville and Shady Side Plantation w/mention of the SPARACENO name. Could you tell me anything about this family? Do you know of a Ruth SPARACENO who married someone named LORE (or maybe LOHR)? Ruth was the granddaughter of a Christian & Edna THOMPSON, enumerated w/them in 1930 in New Orleans along w/Joseph (son-in-law to THOMPSON) & Marie (stepdaughter to THOMPSON) SPARACENO.
In talking w/my mother about family, she mentioned Ruth SPARACENO, saying she was somehow related to us through our BENGERT line (my mother was born a BENGERT). However, we don't know who she was or exactly how she was related. If you know any of these names, I'd love to hear back from you.
