Looking for information on descendants of Grace Vincent WENTWORTH and Lewis PASSAILAIGUE of Bexar County, in late 1890s to early 1900s. Grace was the daughter of Conrad WENTWORTH and Catherine CECIL.

They had 3 known children:

1. Guy PASSAILAIGUE, b. 1892, who married Florence CORN;
2. Lawrence PASSAILAIGUE, b. 1895, and who died in California in 1952;
3. Hope PASSAILAIGUE, b. c. 1907. This Hope may have been married to Thomas J. CAMP.

Any info on any of the above names would be greatly appreciated.

Bettie, do you have birth and death dates and spouse names for the children of Guy Passailaigue you listed? Any information you can share about this family would be greatly appreciated.

Also, was Grace an additional name for Florence? First or second name?

Surnames: Passailaigue, Grunwald
Emma S. Passailaigue lived in South Carolina and was 40 yrs of age and the head of household for the 1880 federal census. She had the following children:

John G. Passailaigue,

Anita E. Passailaigue,

Ernest S. Passailaigue,

Louis F. Passailaigue, &

Hope Passailaigue.

I do not know Emma's husband's name or the father of her children. I do not know how they came to live in South Carolina.

One of her sons, Louis F. Passailaigue married a woman named Grace Vincent Wentworth and traveled through Louisiana and eventually ended up in Bexar County, Texas. They had three children:

Guy Wentworth,

Lawrence, &


Lawrence Newby Passailaigue was born 05/11/1895 and died on 08/22/1952. He was in the US NAVY and is buried in Golden Gate National Cemetery, San Bruno, San Mateo County, CA. I do not know his descendants.


One of their Children, Guy Wentworth Passailaigue married Florence Margaret Corn. They had nine children, (only three sons):

Emma Passailaigue-Cain,

Gordon Corn Passailaigue,

Ethel Passailaigue-Sapp,

Marjorie Passailaigue-Morris,

Ruth Passailaigue-Maltsberger,

Hope Passailaigue-Grunwald,

Robert Guy Passailaigue Sr.,

Billy Jean Passailaigue-Douglas, &

Ted Passailaigue.


Gordon Corn Passailaigue was born Jul. 27, 1916 in San Antonio, Tx and died in Boerne, Tx on Sept. 24, 1991. From his obituary his first wife died and he remarried another woman who had two children from another marriage. I don't know if he had any Passailaigue descendants.


Ted Passailaigue has four children:

Yvette Adamson,

Saundra Passailaigue,

Trisha Passailaigue Brown,

Gary W. Passailaigue &

Gary W. Passailaigue is the only son born to Ted. Gary Passailaigue has two children: Wayne Wentworth Passailaigue and daughter Megan Sue Passailaigue.


Robert Guy Passailaigue Sr had three children:

Robert Guy Passailaigue Jr.,

Terry Nell, &

Barbara Jean.

Robert Guy Jr. married Murna Jean Nason and had one child, a son named Matthew Ryan. Matthew is the only male with the last name Passailaigue from the Robert Guy Passailaigue Sr's lineage. Matthew is my husband.


I have found numerous spellings of the last name, and what I have found is that the spelling "Passailaigue" appears to be original and unique to America. There are around 20+ variations of the name, but the current spelling is only found in America based on the amount of searching I have done. Some variations claim Spanish citizens (Passalacqua) and other claim French Citizens (Passelègue).

On one federal census, Louis F. Passailaigue wrote that his parents were both originally from France. My husband tells me his name and family are French.

Thank you very much, Erin, for posting your research info on the family. Do you happen to have a photo of Lewis Passailaigue? or Grace? or any of their children? My connection is through Grace Wentworth, a daughter of my gg-grandparents, Conrad and Catherine Wentworth.

I have asked my husband's family for photos and additional information. I have two people stating that they will get back to me. As it becomes available to me, I will post it. Lewis has a living grand-daughter named Hope L. Passailaigue-Grunwald. She is very elderly but she is mentally intact. My husband's Aunt stated she was going to interview Hope and "get back to me".

I did post a photo of Lewis' headstone. He is buried in Bexar County in San Antonio, Tx.

Hope is my grandmother. I see her three times a month at least. I just got a box full of pictures dating as far back as 1890 or so. Most are of her brothers and sisters but there are some with her father Guy and a couple of the corn family and a few wentworth pics.

I hope you will be able to share some of the photos! Has your grandmother helped you identify the individuals in the photos?

I am very interested in the Passailaigue family research and have been trying to find out more info about the Hope who was the daughter of Grace (Wentworth) and Lewis Passailaigue, and who married Thomas J. Camp. Did she have another marriage and more children?

Your grandmother Hope is the daughter of Guy and Florence (Corn) Passailaigue?
