I have begun a search of the paternal side of my family.
My grandfather was Albert Mitchel Barra. His father was Alexander Barra. My great grandmother was Philomene Conaire.
They are buried in the Chenal Cemetary in Lakeland.
I've gone allthe way back to Jean Baptist Bara, born 1702. He is first recorded on May 23, 1718 placing him on board the Marie, at LaRochelle, France bpond for Louisiana in the service of Sieur Legoure.
By the census of 1731 at point Coupee Jean Bara is listed along with one femme and one infans. In the Spanish census of Point Coupee in 1766 he is listed along with a wife, by now he is 60 and the wife 20. They have six children, three sons ages 16,9,and 4 and three daughters ages 14,10 and 1. He owns 22 arpents of land and 14 slaves.

My grandmother was a Johnson. More to come.

I am trying to find death information on Marie Marthe BARA, native of Pointe Coupee, daughter of Jean Baptiste BARA and Marie Juana DELATRE. Marthe BARA married Crespin NICOLAS-GONDRAN, native of Martiques, France in New Orleans 1787.
Looking for info of this family after leaving New Orleans. I cannot find death dates for them.

Thanks for the info, Dick. I didn't have her mother's name at all. Do you have any info on their children? I have Marie Vincent Labbe (my 4th great grandfather)and possibly Euphrosine. Do you know why his first name would be Marie or Mary. Thanks again.
