Well I promise you there are 2 Georges or I wouldn't exist today! Like I said, since the mother died only 6 months after he was born, they probably never had him baptized or recorded by the diocese. He also never shows up on any of the census records as living with the family since he was raised by the cousin Pourciau family and never really lived with the Aguillards. But he was not adopted by the Pourciau family and always maintained the Aguillard name. George's daughter Thelma Aguillard, my grandma, said that he didn't see the family very often, and he left home early and moved away from Pointe Coupee to Saint Mary Parish when he was in his late teens I think.

My grandma said some of the brothers and sisters did visit him occasionally, particulary aunt Virginia and an uncle that was known as Raoul, who I am thinking might be Joseph Israel. Another person on the board who is a descendant of Zenon Aguillard--another one of the brothers, said her grandmother also said one of the brothers was called Raoul. They named 2 of their boys Joseph so I guess it's not inconceivable they would name 2 of their boys George.

Unfortunately the only thing I really know about the Aguillards is pretty much what I found on here. My greatgrandpa George died when I was 2 and my grandma died last year, so there's no one left to ask, really. I asked my dad, and he remembers some of his grandpa George's Aguillard nieces coming to visit a few times, although I don't know which ones. I would guess Virginie's children since that's the sibling my grandma seemed to know the most about.
