I'm working on my La family lines and have found a reference to a governor of Louisiana as a ggggg or gggggg grandfather. My ggg grand mother Sallie Zenor and her sister Mollie Zenor were born in Concordia and St mary parishes respectively abt. 1860 and 1867 and , according to a news article, their maternal grand father was a governor of Louisiana but I can't seem to be able to track him down and have hit a brick wall. I've been able to rule out a lot of governors but am still trying to find out who their maternal grand father was. Sallie and Mollie's mother was Lucretia Robbins born about 1833 to David and Sarah Robbins (Sarah born abt. 1805 in LA)I don't know who Sarah Robbins father was (a possible candidate). On the other side, Lucretia's husband George Zenor was the son of Mathias (Michael) Zenor and S.M. R. (Sarathenia?) (Waller) of LA.(born abt 1810) . Does anyone know the name of Pierre Derbigby's children? If I knew his daughter's names, I might be able to confirm or rule him out a as a possible ancestor.The time frame seems to work and I've been able to rule out some of the other governors.

Thanks for any information you could provide
