One Families Story: Read a story matching the term you chose:
STORYTELLER: geneaology LOCATION: New Iberia, Louisiana YEAR TOOK PLACE: 1870s
TELLER'S PLACE OF ORIGIN: Bakersfield, California and New Iberia, Louisiana HOW HEARD:

There is a story posted on your site about a Lion Lewis from New Iberia, LA. I recently helped a man in Bakersfield, CA on his geneaology about this family. On the 1870 federal census New Lberia, LA, Leon/Clementine Lewis are listed. His father Leon listed b. 1832

and the previous family listed is a Jean Louis/Lewis 1801 as African. Anyway I'm trying to connect with the family listed to your site. They were looking for additional family members.... My email address is dharrise@aol.com
