Hi Shirley.

I am assuming that you are descended from Marcellin, since he was the only child you listed. I looked in Father Hebert's Southwest LA Records, Volume 2 (1810-1830). I found two Marcellins -- only one of them has a father named Joseph (who married Celeste Dugas) but his parents were not Jean Dugas and Marguerite Dupuis. There seems to have been a second Joseph (son of Jean and Marguerite) who marrie Anne Celanie Breaux.

p 287
DUGAS, Marcellin (son of Joseph and Celeste Dugas) m. 7 April 1828 Melanie Boudrou (Laf. Ch v1 # 83)

p 286
Dugas, Joseph pere m. Celeste Dugat d, 15 Aug 1830 at age 61 years (Laf Ch v2 p 96)

Dugas, Joseph dit Foraz m. Celeste Dugas Succ. Dated 22 Dec 1830 (Laf. Ct Hse # 196)

DUGAS, Joseph (son of Jean and Marguerite Dupuy) m. 10 Feb 1812 Marie Celanie Brau of St. Jacque (SM Ch v5 # 248)
--I don't think this could be the same Joseph as the father of Marcellin, not when Father Hebert lists a different set of parents and when Joseph's death record lists his wife as Celeste Dugas.

DUGAS, Jean (Joseph and Celeste Dugas) b 8 Aug 1812 (SM CH v6 # 1426)

From Volume 1 (pre-1810).
p 191
DUGAS, Marcellin (son of Joseph and Celeste Dugas) b 2 Oct 1804 (SM Ch v6 #267)

This is the only other Marcellin. His father is Celeste Dugas's brother:
DUGAS, Marcellin (Pierre of La Grande Prairie and Marie Gauthereau) b 8 May 1807) SM Ch v6 # 428)

And it had this other information about Joseph Dugas:

DUGAS, CELESTE (daughter of Jean and Anastasie Dupuis) m 2 Aug 1794 Joseph Duga (son of Charles and Marguerite Grange)
(SM Ch v4 # 99)

DUGAS, Celestine (Joseph of St. Malo, France and Celestine Duga of SM) b 27 July 1809 (SM Ch v7 # 284)

DUGAS, Joseph (Joseph of St. Malo and Celeste Duga of Atakapas) baptized 24 Mar 1799 at age 6 months (SM Ch v5 # 117)

DUGAS, Marie Aspasie (Joseph and Celeste Dugas) b 13 Mar 1796 (SM Ch v4 # 792)

DUGAS, Marie Aspasie (Joseph and Celeste Duga) d 11 Sep 1798 at age 2 1/2 years (SM Ch v4 # 159)

DUGAS, Marie (--- of France and ---Dugas of SM) b 8 --- 1802 (SM Ch v6 #34)

DUGAS, Marguerite Silesie (Joseph of St. Malo, France and Celeste Duga) b 3 Feb 1807 (SM Ch v7 # 143)

SM Ch = St. Martin of Tours Church
PO Box 71
St. Martinville, LA 70582 (records dating from 1756)

LAF ch = St. John Cathedral
PO Box 2386
Lafeyette, LA 70501 (records dating from 1821)

I just did a quick spot check of these two volumes (I don't have access to the others), and I think I got most of the children. I may have missed one or two.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

Karen :)
