Madness Monday: Mystery photo edition
It's signed: Pae? or Pac? What do you think? Pat? Initials? Oh, and yes, I'm sure she looks much better than in that photo--hideous, right??!! LOL
If initials, I'm leaning toward "P.A.C." (Compare the "c" in "excuse" above it.) The most prevalent "C" names in their area would probably be Cormier, Comeau(x), and Chiasson. There are also Credeur (Caruthers) and Constantin families in the area. None of the "C" names are closely related to our family.
Anyone want to guess at dating the photo or the ages of the people in it?
Surnames of possible cousins: Legere, McBride, Roade, Royer, Devillier, Duhon, Dupre. Less likely might be nieces/nephews surnamed Babineaux, Guidry, Malapart, Hernandez. I'm almost certain it's none of my grandma Elia's siblings, and probably not a niece or nephew. Perhaps it's a former neighbor from the Ossun or Scott area where they lived, or from Carencro, where they attended St. Peter Catholic Church. I may post this on the Lafayette Parish GenWeb genealogy site in case anyone recognizes the family there.
Thanks for your input!
