I have quite a bit of info on my great-gradfather J.B Villeret. The stone wall that I am constantly running into is finding out who HIS father is: the "Mystery Villeret". I know he is related to the rather large Villeret family in Pointe Coupee, but I need that one ancestor to make the link. Here is what I know about his son: J.B.:
He is listed in the census under several names:
Jean Baptiste/Jake/John - last name is Villeret b. Dec 1864 or 1865.
His mother's name is Josephine Bertand.
He married Anaise (Annie) Marshall in 1881
They moved to New Orleans by the 1920 census.
Rumor has it that his mother and father may not have been married. Not sure about that.
If anyone can search the Catholic Church records for him in Baton Rouge, or has any info, I would be so grateful. His father's name may be listed there.
