Looking for information on an AfAm family in the area of Jeanerette, Iberia Parish, LA.
Charles Lewis b.1861 married to Julia unk. b.June 1873. Known children were Edna b.1898, Morris(Maurice)b.Aug 1893, Agnes b.Nov 1895, Alfred b.April 1900, and twins who died at or not long after birth.
I have Charles and Julia in Jeanerette 8th Ward in 1900 census, but then in 1910, Julia is listed as a widow with the 4 children still in Jeanerette.
Trying to find the parents/siblings of Charles Lewis, the maiden name of Julia and also her parents/siblings.
Charles may have been murdered in Beaumont, Tx. but not sure how to find out.
They're my husband's great grandparents on his mother's side.
Is it possible to send off for birth, marriage and death certificates in Louisiana once you have some dates? I've read that LA is difficult to deal with in trying to get genealogy information and records.
Thank you in advance for any help.
