Julvina (Julia?) DeSoto
Posted by: Barbara Dicapo (ID *****2382) Date: July 02, 2002 at 11:51:22
  of 142

My mother is one of 12 children of Julvina DeSoto and Joseph Archille Billodeau. Because of many of the children being delivered by midwives in the 1910's, 1920's, 1930's, the spelling of their surname differs among these siblings. The variations are as seen in the subject of this message. The names of my maternal aunts and uncles along with their spouses (not in birth order) are:

Victoria (Joseph LaPalma) both deceased
Allen (Nola Mae Thiall) both deceased
Thelma (1-Jewel 'Totsie' Meyers - Deceased; 2- ? Lasiegne -
Angelina (Richard 'Dick' Meyers) - Divorced. He is deceased
Odessa (1-Martin Meche - Deceased; 2-John 'Neg' Lege -
James (Myrtle Waites) He is deceased.
Ethel (1-Lawrence 'Buck' Mouille - Deceased; 2- Marvin T.
Benton (Meacie Waites)
Lawrence (Annette Goudeau)
Lucille (Otis Goudeau)
Ruby (1-? Leger-Divorced; 2- Ted Blanchard)
Alce' (Shirley Jarreau) - Divorced; He is deceased.

My maternal grandmother, Julvina (or Julia, as known by some) DeSoto, was the daughter of Angelina Melissa Waters and Fermin DeSoto. Julvina's sisters and brothers and their spouses are:

Angelina Melissa (? 'Lucky' Miller)
Minnie (John Hillary Billeaudeau)
Elvira (? Bonnette)
Firmen (Estelle Ducote)
Alonzo (Elnetta Dupont)
Lee (Ivy Billodeau)
Samual (Mariah Boudreaux)

The names of my maternal grandfather's parents are Benton Billodeau and Lenise Firmin.

This information came from word of mouth only. Any information not included has been lost to memory or is not known.

Any information that others could supply would be very much appreciated.
