In the early 1860's there were three people with the name Ducey-Ducy listed in the St. Louis city directories. Michael Ducey, Patrick Ducey and Maurice Ducey, my own ancestor. Michael and Patrick disappeared from the directories shortly thereafter. One of them, I think it was Patrick, had the occupation of "Riverman."

I will check the directories the next time I am at the library and pass the information along to you.

Of course, St. Louis was held tightly by the Union during the Civil War while the rest of the state was mostly Confederate. New Orleans was captured by the north in the first year of the war putting pressure on southern river traffic.
