I just received some information from a distant cousin which indicated a connection to the Deville line. In there it mentions a Judith Deville, born 1848, married Andrus Carpenter in 1867. Judith was one of 11 children of Louis Deville II (called Mean) who married Celestine Johnson (b 3 Dec 1809 - daughter of Jean Baptiste Johnson II and Jadique Broussard). The children listed were: 1. Marie Louise (b 1828, married David Powers){this is my connection} 2. Caroline (b 1830, married 1852 to Helaine Clark) 3. Celestine (b 1833, married 1867 to David Clark) 4. Louise (b 1835, married 1859 to Denerge Johnson) 5. Louis P. (b 1838, married 1866 to Caroline Hebert, she passed away and he married Roseline Johnson in 1888) 6. Sophean (b 1841, married 1860 to William Carpenter) 7. Infant (b 1843/d 1843) 8. Infant (b 1844/d 1844) 9. Edvise (b 1845/d 1927 - never married) 10. Judith (b 1848, married 1867 to Andrus Carpenter) 11. Stephen (b 1852, married ?? to Mabelta Bryant).

I had a great uncle named Albert J. Rayford (AJ) who used to own several businesses in Turkey Creek. He was married to a woman named Thelma Cloud. Do you know anything of these folks?
