126. Zenon LEMOINE was born on 17 February 1802 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.926 He was baptized on 20 May 1802 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.926 He appeared in the census in 1850 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA. His wife had died the previous year and he now had six children to raise aged 14 and under. Living with him and the children was his son, Pierre, Pierre's wife Melina, and their two children. The value of Zenon's real estate was $70,000 and his occupation was listed as 'farmer'. Zenon was buried on 2 August 1850 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Cemetery & Mausoleum in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA. Although his burial record states that he was 42 years of age, he was actually 48. His death occurred less than a year and a half after the death of his wife and very shortly after the 1850 census was taken.927 He had his estate in succession on 12 August 1850 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA. His estate was extensive at the time of his death and he owned over 75 slaves. A final accounting of his estate ten years after his death indicates that almost eighty-three thousand dollars was distributed from his estate. Joséphine RABALAIS and Zenon LEMOINE252 were united in Civil Marriage on 27 June 1820 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.599,1033 They599,1033 were married on 11 February 1826 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.1034

127. Joséphine RABALAIS was born about December 1805 based on her baptismal record which indicates she was baptized at the age of nine months.1035 She was baptized on 3 September 1806 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.1035 She was buried on 10 February 1849 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Cemetery & Mausoleum in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.1036 Joséphine had her estate in succession on 8 April 1849 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA. However, this was the date in which the proceedings of a family meeting were presented in order to discuss the minor children of the marriage of Josephine Rabalais and Zenon Lemoine. Therefore, the succession likely started before this date although I do not have those papers.
