Came across your listing while researching the Rouyer family. I know that you are primarily researching the Ripoll family, and thought you might be interested in knowing a little more about Loretta Adona Ripoll. Loretta was born in New Orleans on 31 December 1879 (Orleans Parish Birth Certificate Vol. 89, page 690) and married Edward Whitney Rouyer there on 29 August 1901 (Orleans Parish Marriage Certificate Vol. 23, page 284). The couple had three children that I know of:
1) Irma Loretta Rouyer born 5 September 1902 (Orleans Parish Birth Certificate Vol. 123, page 998);
2) Myrtle Allyne Rouyer born 13 November 1903 (Orleans Parish Birth Certificate Vol. 126, page 753);
3) Edwina Rouyer born circa 1911 (1920 and 1930 census).
Given the gap between Allyne and Edwina, there may have been more children. Edward Whitney Rouyer died on 12 October 1910 (Orleans Parish Death Certificate Vol. 150, page 621), prior to Edwina’s birth. By 1920, Loretta married George Virgin(?) and the family was living on Burgundy Street in New Orleans (1920 census). George was born in Louisiana in 1885 and apparently died in the early 1920s. Following George’s death, Loretta married once again, this time to William Mark Martin in June 1928 (Orleans Parish Marriage Certificate Vol. 51, page 725). Martin was apparently born in about 1882 in Louisiana (1930 census). In 1930, William Martin and his wife were living at 5314 Laurel Street in New Orleans (1930 census). Residing with them was Edwina Rouyer. Edwina had married Nick Domilise in about 1925 or 1926 and that couple had at least one child—Gerard Domilise born in about 1927 (1930 census). Both Nick and Gerard were living with the Martins in 1930. Not sure what happened to Irma Loretta or Myrtle Allyne or to the Domilise family after 1930. Loretta did not have any children by either Virgin(?) or Martin and eventually died in New Orleans on 15 June 1968 (SSDI).
Edward Whitney Rouyer would have been one of my g-g-uncles and I have not spent a great deal of time researching that line. If you use Ancestry to try to find Loretta in the 1910 census, you need to search under “Roayer” and under “Ranger” in 1920. In 1930, search for “Morton” instead of Martin.
