Hi, I am looking for my family heritage with the names of Thomas Carmouche Dodson, Pierre L. Carmouche, on my grandfathers side, and on my grandmother's side, Christine Viola Smoot. Most of our family was from Donaldsonville, La, Acension and Michigan

Hi Jim,
Wow, where did you find it. Ive been stuck. It is Pierre L. Carmouche correct...? Does that lead to Thomas Carmouche Dodson?

Hi, I am sorry but that Carmonche instead of with the
Carmouche. It is spelled with the n. I am not related, but I like to help people do their roots.

Hi I am back with some more info on the family.

On the 1880 Census and 1900, I see the census
mispelled your last name. In the 1870 Census it is spelled
correctly as Carmouche.

1870 Census , Donaldsonville, Ascension, La

Pierre Carmouche, born 1820, age 50, born LA, mulatto
Adele Carmouche, born 1830, age 40, born LA
Philomina age 12, Lacreix,age 9 born La ( that has to be Pierre L born in 1867), Elizaeth age 6, Eve age 3

#everybody born in LA.

Still looking for 1860.

Yes I am, I have been researching Thomas Dodson's connection to Pierre Carmouche.

I know my greatgrandfather had a Candy Store called Dodson's candy...does that help?
