I am searching for the children of Simon Demas Broussard & Alzire Broussard. Simon Demas & Alzire were married either on 11 May 1861 or 6 Jul 1863 (I've seen both dates). Records show that they had 1 child in 1866, and another in 1868.
I have seen another record that says that they had a son, Simon b. 20 Jan 1862.
I believe Simon Demas' parents were Simon Broussard (b.11 Dec 1804) & Marie Prince (b.15 Sep 1812). Simon Demas also had a sister, Amelie (b.20 Apr 1834).
Alzire Broussard's parents were Alexandre Broussard & Marcellite Broussard.
I would also appreciate any information on the issue of Simon Broussard & Carmellite Broussard. They were married 12 Sep 1865. According to one record they had a son, Simeon - b.15 Feb 1868 in Youngsville.
I have hit a BRICK WALL with the parents of Victor Broussard (b.May 1866) married to Helene Hebert on 10 Oct 1881. Victor was my gggrandfather.
I believe that perhaps these other couples (Simon Demas/Alzire or Simon/Carmellite) could be his parents since marriage dates correspond to Victor's birth date.

Thanks so much for the information. I have, since my earlier posting, found out that Victor Broussard's parents were Eglantine Colomb and Lazare Broussard, and that Eglantine was married the Eugene Fabre when Victor was born. Victor found out about his biological father (Lazare Broussard) when he was 16 and changed his name from Fabre (on his birth certifictate) to Broussard. He soon after left home and married Helene Hebert. Apparently Eglantine also had another child, Padie, with Lazare Broussard, while married to Fabre.

Thanks again for your help.

Information I sent a while ago I should have indicated that the names were Joseph Schexnayder and Marguerite Gallet were the parents of Emetille Schexnayder who was born 24 Aug 1872.

I am looking for the ancestors of Alzire Broussard.
It gets fairly confusing with all of the Broussards marrying Broussards!
Sabrina Broussard Abraham20th February 2013 - 7:20 PM
I have a different upline than you for the husband of Alzire Broussard. His father was also a Simon Broussard (b. 1804) married to Marie Prince(b. 15 Sept 1812) 5 Jan 1829
This is also listed in the Broussard books by Conover.
