Hi. I'm not related to this family. This might be Samuel in 1860:

1860 United States Federal Census about Saml F Decoteau
Name:        Saml F Decoteau
Age in 1860:        5
Birth Year:        abt 1855
Birthplace:        Louisiana
Home in 1860:        East Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Gender:        Male
Post Office:        Baton Rouge
Household Members:        
Name        Age
A D Decoteau         40 b. 1820 LA; Laborer
Mary D Decoteau        42 b. 1818 LA
Antwine Q Decoteau        11 b. 1849 LA
Eliza J Decoteau        7 b. 1853 LA
Saml F Decoteau        5 b. 1855 LA
Sarah A Decoteau        2 b. 1858 LA

According to a tree on Ancestry, Samuel's parents were Antoine Dorgieville Decoteau & Mary Ann Lloyd. Antoine's parents were Francois-Xavier Lefebvre dit Descoteaux & Marguerite Parent. However, according to this tree as well, Samuel married Telitha Ann Rouse 25 Feb 1876 in East Baton Rouge. They had three children: Albert, b. 1878; Alma, b. 1880; and Hattie Mary, b. 1886.

This would be that family in 1880:
