How can I find out if someone Louis C. Smith was a police office in Louisiana around 1927. I would guess probably New Orleans or Livingston, but really dont have a clue. His name is printed on my father's birth certificate and I dont know if that may be a misprint. My father, James Joseph Jones, his mothers name is Lillian A. Wilferd (mispelled) - should be Williford. Any information would be great.
