Angel, Hi. Thanks for answering. I tried to send this message to your posted address, but I got it back. So here's what I have on the family :
William Thomas McLin was my gggrandfather.He was b. 15 Dec 1842 in La. He d. 13 Apr 1930 and is bu. in Baton Rouge. He m. 4 Jan 1873 Henriette Victorine Lavigne in Lobdell, La. Their children were:
1) Robert Dexter (my ggrandfather)b. 12 Nov 1873 in WBR Parish, La. d. Aug 1951. He m. Bertha Marie Thibodeaux on 31 Dec 1902
2) Emily b. 11 May 1875 m. Adam LeJeune
3) William Henry b. 8 Aug 1777 d. 29 June 1882
4) Mary Celestine ("Teen") b. 22 July 1879 d. c1943 m 1902 Joseph West
5) Joseph Thomas b. 6 Nov 1881 bt. 18 June 1882 m. 25 Jan 1905 Anna Broussard
6) Louis Charles b. 4 Dec 1885 bt 8 Mar 1885 d bet. 1951 & 1960
7) Mary Belle b. 1 Jan 1887 m. 15 Feb 1905 Jules Broussard

If it is any help, the children of Robert D. and Bertha were:
1) Mary (the family called her Guy) b. 2 Feb 1904 m. Frederick Chidester ( my grandparents)
2) Hermance Enid b. 16 July 1907
3) Robert dexter jr b. 14 Sep 1906
4) Hughes Horace b. 12 June 1916
5&6) Twins died within a few days
7) Carol Jerome d. in infancy

That's all I have. Wish it were more. I know that I was always told that the Livingston family and the Port Allen family were not related, but I can't help thinking that, given the regular occurance of the same names
we must be derived from the same original settlers of the area ! Thanks for your time and your help !! Sandra
