My name is Cynthia DeCoux Stone. I am working on my family history and seem to be stuck at the DeCoux part. Hopefully, I can connect with someone who can give me a name or two and start me on my way.

My grandfather was Abel Decoux. He was born 19OCT1894. I believe he was from the New Iberia area, but he could have been born around Pointe Coupee, as well. His mother was Louise Judice and his father was Jean Paul DeCoux.

Abe had many siblings: Lucille, Maurice, Teresa (married garcia), Marie Mable, Rene,Blance, Anna, Pierre Sydney, and Marie Rose.

We are part of the Gonsoulin heirship, and are related to many other DeCouxs. Jean Paul DeCoux, my ggf, had siblings:

Adolphe DeCoux who married Florestine Vaughn (children = Henry,Frank, George,Adolphe, Clarence, Lauren, Laurence, Mauise, Laura who married Prutherds)

Rodolphe who adopted Aurelie.

Norber (no children)

Leo DeCoux,III


Murat who married Elmire Bernard (children= Sadie who married Vinsor, Olga, Murat Bernard,Jr.)

Eras, married Boutte

Eda, married Boudreaux

If any of these are people you know, I would appreciate hearing from you. My father, his parents, and older sister have all passed away. My cousins and I are looking for our other cousins, just to know who and where they are. She lives in Houston, I live in VA, and my mother and my paternal aunt, still live in Sulphur. Thanks, Cindy

Surnames: DeCoux
I have been compiling Pointe Coupee and found many of my ancestors have married DeCoux's. I have been working in the late 1700's early 1800's and haven't gotten to your ancestors but probably will one day. I think you should check the "Catholic Church Records" volumes, published by the Diocese of Baton Rouge and/or "Southwest La" volumes published by Fr. Donald Hebert. These are very important to me as just about everyone in my tree is in these books. They were born & stayed in Pointe Coupee, I was lucky there. But I still have a couple missing links, Riggs is my big puzzle, one Patin, and one Saizan! Otherwise I would have all generations back to about late 1600's early 1700's.
Your local state gene library will probably have all of these volumes, DeCoux is REAL easy.
Happy Hunting

Tell your cousin in Houston that the Clayton Library on
Caroline has the 18 Baton Rouge Diocese books and also much
other info about Pointe Coupee and Louisiana. It is a great
genealogical library.

I am looking for two individuals who are my third great grandparents both were born at Pointe Coupee. They may have been married their too. They are Joachim Scallan I b.23 Mar
1783 and Felicite Bourque b. 15 Mar 1786. This information came from Nelson Gremillion's Books: "Early Families of Avoyelles Parish Louisiana" vols I and II. If you know anything about either of them you may e-mail me. My e-mail address is

Is Abel one of Adolph(e)'s siblings?

I am one of Henry DeCoux's grandaughters. Most of us live on the west coast. In an effort to find Henry's family I traveled to Louraeville, LA in 2007 and found the family crypt behind the church in that town. There is a faded list in the parrish office that shows who is buried there including Adolph(e) and perhaps Florestine. We have various stories surrounding the mysterious Florestine and we are wondering if anyone can tell us if her full name was Octivie Florestine Vaughn. If so we can move on.

Adolph's father Leo is in the crypt. His father and mother were Leonard De Coux and Zoe Cerement Bouth. Leonard's father and mother were Hilaire DeCoux and Emilee DeCur. In my research I found that DeCur was an alternate spelling of DeCoux and have alwasy assumed Hilaire married a cousin.

Hope some of this is helpful.
