Descendants of Erma Francois & Ernest Francois

Has anyone in these 2 families ever heard anything about a Riley Dixon? Either from parents, grandparents, etc? When Riley was 5 yrs old he had to live with a Dave Mathews family in Evergreen, LA. Dave's children were Harvey Mathews who married Erma Francois, Ida Mathews who married Ernest Francois and Nettie Mathews. Dave's wife was called Betty? I'm sure someone in these families had heard of some stories as to why Riley was living with these people. What happened to his REAL parents? What happened to this Dave Mathews family? Can't someone tell me anything to help in my search for Riley's family; if he had brothers or sisters; where were his parents; anything at all that might have been heard that was passed down?
