Marie Louise RABALAIS was born in August 1812.1023 She was baptized on 10 November 1812 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.1023 In a January 1881 issue of the Marksville Bulletin, a notice of her death appears in which she is, interestingly, referred to as the 'late consort of Appolinaire Bordelon'. (Is this because it does not appear that their civil marriage was ever blessed in church?) The article indicates that she died on the 27th (I'm assuming that it's January 27th) and that she died in Cottonport. She is listed as age 69.
