Thanks for the info. I especially like the story about how the x was added to the name. The French spoken in Avoyelles is somewhat different that what is spoken in southern La. It is closer to the French spoken in France hundreds of yrs. ago.
I have not found an Edison or Shelby in my family tree. You mentioned that your Dad's family was from Marksville. Where are you now living?
