My great grandmother was Sophie (Sophia)DeCuir from Loreauville. She was an octoroon whose white father was ? Decuir who had a white family across town. Sophie's mother's name is unknown. Sophie or Sophia married a man last name Jones & went on to have six children. Her oldest daughter was Stennie Jones also born in Loreauville which was my grandmother. I have pictures of both Sophie circa early 1900's & Stennie circa mid 1930-1960's. Any info. would be appreciated. I have also met a Mary Alice DeCuir from New Iberia/Loreauville. Her father was Joseph DeCuir wife Amelia. Mary Alice grandfather (Joseph's father) was Homer (Omer) DeCuir who had a twin brother name Jean-Paul. Both twin brothers Homer & Jean Paul had octoroon or mulatto paramours that had children with them besides their white families.We beleive we are related. Any info?
