I see it's been more than a decade since these initial posts about Louis Norbert LeBoeuf (1819-1901). I'm one of his many great-great-grandchildren through Pauline. For years I've heard about the existence of an old photograph of him that has survived the big hurricane of 1918 and hurricane Audrey in 1957. Some cousins of mine formerly of Cameron, LA told me about it and I recently asked one of them to locate the owners. I've wanted to find that photograph to make a high resolution copy of it to share with fellow descendants, but I just found out today that it was lost in hurricane Ike and/or Rita a few years ago. My cousin spoke with the owner who said their house in Cameron was not completely destroyed (unlike so many others) but their possessions--including the photo of Louis--were flooded and immersed in mud. It sounded like the photograph was destroyed, but I'm hoping even in spite of it being flooded and "mudded" that somehow it wasn't a complete loss (I hope they didn't throw away what was left of it). But maybe someone reading this knows of someone who might've made a copy of the photo before the hurricanes. Anybody have any clues? (see my genealogy pages at www.heddins.com)
