St. Ann Catholic Church Cemetery Records, Mamou, LA
Posted by: Rosie Wells (ID *****8775) Date: April 23, 2006 at 07:23:58

Dear Nancy,

Early this year, I visited the Evangeline Parish Library in

Ville Platte and had the librarian copy St. Ann Cemetery

Records for me. I found your ancestors in St. Ann Cemetery

(Mamou North), p. 593

Armide F. Guillory, b. 03 Apr 1898, d. Nov 12, 1975

Sady Guillory b. 12 Jan 1895, d. 08 Jun 1970

I looked for their birth/baptismal records in Southwest

Louisiana Records by Rev. Donald J. Hébert, but they were

not listed. The fire of 1936 destroyed St. Ann's early

church records. However, if you send for a copy of their

marriage license, you may find their parents' names listed.

Ask the Clerk to copy front and back.

My parents married at St. Ann's in 1924 and I was not able

to get a copy of their marriage record from St. Ann's. I

went to the Evangeline Parish Court House in Ville Platte

and asked for a copy of their marriage license. It was my

good fortune that the pastor of St. Ann's had completed the

form provided on the back of their license for recording

the religious ceremony and returned it to the Clerk of

Court to be recorded.

Best regards,
