My name is John De Ville. I am the grandson of Alexandre DeFran De Ville, Jr. I know of only one marriage by this man. This would be to my grandmother, Zelma Collins, of Bazile, LA. My father, Willie De Ville (born in Bell City; died while living in Lake Charles), died when I was only 11 months old. I only knew of four siblings that my father had. Recently I found his obituary from 1964, which stated he had two other surviving siblings that I did not know about. Amy De Ville Gobert and Arthur De Ville. Both resided in San Antonio at the time of my father's death. Can anyone tell me if my grandfather was married twice, and if these other two siblings were really half-siblings? Thanks!
