There are many Decuirs in La. just about all of whom descend from Albert Decuir, who came from the Hainaut area of southern Belgium. Sounds like you might be related to the same family back in Belgium, even though Albert Decuir came to French Louisiana in the first half of the 1700's. You might like to look at www.avoyelles.com and read the Decuir discussion and link to the "Hainaut" item. Also, see www.decuir.net
