Eighth Generation


164. Guillaume LEMOINE was born on 23 June 1771 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1057 He was baptized on 14 July 1771 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1057 In the records of Avoyelles, there is a 12 May 1794 petition of Guillaume Lemoine who accused of attacking Gaignard. On 19 March 1796 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA, Bellony Chatelain sold to Guillaume Lemoine "one-half of land" (one-half arpent?). On the same day Pierre Lemoine sold two arpents of land to Guillaume. On 22 October 1808 the sale of a negro slave named Louis (from New Orleans) took place from Recouli and J. Lacombe to Guillaume Lemoine. He died on 28 October 1836 at the age of 65 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.1058 Guillaume was buried at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Cemetery & Mausoleum in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA. He was buried in the old Hydropolis Cemetery (along with most of the original settlers of Avoyelles) which is believed to have been right behind (and under) the existing mausoleum at St. Paul's Cemetery. The graves, however, are no longer marked. In the early 1950s, St. Paul's Monsignor Michael P. Nothofer, supposedly, had been suffering with a severe illness (possibly cancer) and, as a result, terribly neglected the St. Paul's cemetery. Some of the parishioners, irate with the excessive overgrowth, literally bulldozed the section of the cemetery where the original graves stood. Many of the tombstones were carried away and used as sidewalks. 1058 Marie Barbe Amable COUVILLION and Guillaume LEMOINE251,842 were married on 27 June 1795 at St. Joseph in Baton Rouge (East Baton Rouge Parish), Louisiana, USA.1167 They1167 appeared in the census in 1810 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.

165. Marie Barbe Amable COUVILLION was born about 1780 in Louisiana, USA.251 She died in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA at 8 o'clock in the morning at her mother's home. It is unclear, however, if she was buried on the same day on which she died.1143 She was buried on 12 June 1831 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Cemetery & Mausoleum in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA. She was buried in the old cemetery at Hydropolis (Mansura) (along with most of the original settlers of Avoyelles) which is believed to have been right behind (and under) the existing mausoleum at St. Paul's Cemetery.
