In Reply to: America Decuir & Darrell Ozenne by Tim Ozenne of 139

My grandmother, Adelia Decuir, was born in Louisiana in June 1886 and was America's sister. Although Grandma used to call her America, we called her Auntie May. We'd visited Auntie May at her home in Manhattan beach often, and sometimes stayed for weeks during summer vacation. So I've heard lots of the family history. Somewhere I have a family geneology chart, that I'll try to dig up for you if you'd like. Joe Decuir's grandson put it together in the late 1970's or 80's.
I thought all the children were born in New Iberia, LA. at the family's pecan orchard. Marie Decuir was Adelia and America's older sister and the brothers were Joe, Frances and John. If America, was in fact born in Mexico it was probably during a time her parents were there on a visit. Some of Hilaire's relatives had moved there.
Also, Darrell Ozenne went by the name Dan. He was very dear to my Mom. She told me stories of going to visit Auntie May and Uncle Dan when she was a child and how much fun she had. At the time Manhattan Beach was very rural, and although they had a car, as a special treat, Uncle Dan would hitch up their horse to a buggy to take them to church on sunday.
