Re: Southwest LA & Southeast TX

Earline,
I have changed my file to reflect John Cormier and Mary Renna Farque/Faulk as the parents of Peter, Arthur, Joseph, Arteamus, Ogese, Jake, Adam, Melete, and Myrtie Cormier.
I never found any evidence to support that the other John Cormier (son of Alexandre Cormier, Sr.) md. Mary Renna but the location was right. I did not realize until reading your posting that I was mistaken in the John Cormier I had listed as the husband of Renna.
I believe the other John Cormier md. Mary Berry. She was the daughter of George Washington Berry and Caroline Moore.
I have John Cormier, husband of Renna, listed as Jean Baptiste Adam Cormier, son of Onezime Cormier and Marguerite Arthemise Melancon. The circumstantial evidence is pretty strong for this conclusion as Onezime Cormier was the brother of Alexandre Cormier, Sr. and they were in Calcasieu Parish, LA in the same area.
