Help me find info on husband/wife Alexander/Alexandre FORTIER, possibly Andrew FORTIER (born about 1861 died after 1900), who was married to Marie (maiden name unknown), (born about1862; died after 1920). Marie is mentioned on page 176 of OLD LOUISIANA PLANTATION HOMES, chapter XIX, as 'The late Madame Andrew FORTIER, mother of Andrew FORTIER [Andre/Andrew Norbert FORTIER] and Mrs. Mortimer WALTON [Stella FORTIER] - a relative of the late Professor Alcée FORTIER. Perhaps Marie was also a FORTIER? Stumped on all vital facts for Alexander/Andrew and his wife Marie. [query placed online 5/20/2018]

FRILOUX - FRILOT
Joshua Friloux
Luling  LA
Email

I am seeking to establish the truth behind the claim that Claude FRILOT (1765-1834), was the son of Michel FRILOUX (1728-1777). In many unsourced family trees online, this claim is made. There are numerous items of circumstantial evidence I have found, but nothing that is so clear as for example, the baptismal records which can be found of Michel's other children.
