I am a native of Long Beach, MS. My dad and his family are from around Kinder, LA. I have done some research on my grandfather's line, but haven't been able to find anything on my grandmother's side. The information you gave me for Rita's parents were exact, the information on Bernard's family is a wonderful addition. As I am looking through my information on Joseph Fusilier, I am hitting a wall. I have his siblings' names, Libby and Belle. Children from his first wife are Beaulah, Jean, Earl, and Hebert. My grandmother was born in Eunice (Tasso), LA in the 1930's, Rita and Joseph were married in 1927 and lived in or around Lake Charles, LA. It looks as though he might have gone by the name of Elba.
