I am searching for a death record for Leroy Dupre son of Dorestan Laurent Dupre & Fidel (Faidelle) Deshotel Dupre.
It is rumored that Leroy accidently shot himself and died during a hunting accident when he was a child. He was a resident of St. Landry Parish. It is rumored that he was sent to New Orleans hospital after the shooting. And, that he is buried in New Orleans. I cannot locate anything on his death, or burial. I do know that he appears in the 1920 census, living with his family in St. Landry Parish. He was 10 years old at the time. He does NOT appear on the 1930 census. So, I know the time frame is 1920-1930.
I have searched the Louisiana Archives for a death certificate, but have not been able to locate anything for him.
NOTE: His name could also be listed as Lee, or Roy.
If he was indeed buried at the hospital cemtery, how would I locate this information?
