Alexandre Defranc Deville Sr. had children with Augustine Gradeni but no marriage ever took place that I have been able to find. Do you have a marriage on this couple?

My husband and I are related through lateral lines of Alexandre and his first wife Azelie Chapman.

The story goes: Alexandre and Augustine had children together after Azelie died. Augustine was half black and half Choctaw Indian. No birth record can be found on Augustine. Augustine was a servant in Alexandre and Azelie's home and she took care of Azelie when she was very ill until her death.

Clementine married Ambroise Antoine in 1894. Do you have this information? If you have something different please email me at I would love to hear about some of your stories about the families.
