Surnames: Sobert, Melancon, Fremin, Dubois, Saubert
Please, I need assistance tracing the origins of my family name, Sobert, into Louisiana, from Canada, France, possibly Germany. . I have Andre Sobert (no birthdate, probably late 1700's or early 1800)marrying (no date) Marie Anne Dubois (b about 1802). They had a son, Jean Marie (Maurice?)Sobert, b 1830, marrying Marie Clemance Fremin 17 June 1867 in Labadieville, Assumption Parish, LA. I believe they spent their lives in and around the parishes of Assumption, Ascension, Lafourche,and possibly the German Coast.

Could possibly have lived in Iberville Parish (only a guess).

Thanks for any help.

Thank you very much for your reply. I had, much earlier, located all the information you mention. My difficulty is in locating any information about Andre Sobert and Marie Anne Dubois (Jean Marie's parents).

Thank you.

I want to thank you again for your previous reply.

To date I have found nothing regarding my great-great-grandfather, Andre Sobert and my great-great-grandmother, Marie Anne Dubois (details regarding both in previous query). In fact, going forward, I have found nothing about my great-grandparents, Jean-Marie Sobert/Saubert and Marie Clemance Fremin (and I have found info about her lineage all the way back to the Trahan's and Dugas/Bourgeois relationships). I did find info about Jean-Marie's Civil War militia service, but nothing thereafter. Census information (1820-1860) from the surrounding parishes reveals nothing.

Do you have any suggestions regarding my next approach to this mystery? Thanks for any assistance that you may be able to provide.
