I'm trying to find information about my great grandfather Francois Florestine Delatte b. 12/31/1856 d. 1/7/1918
He lived in Whitehall LA. in Livingston Parish most of his life but I have not been able to find his parents name or place of birth. I was told a long time ago that our family came to New Olreans in the 1720's which appears to be true but I haven't been able to get past "F. F. Delatte". If any one has any info I would appriciate it.

Michael, go to the library and research a set of books by Fr. Donald Hebert on South Louisiana families. I was there yesterday and picked up Volume 14 of the set and there were a lot of Delattes from the Baton Rouge area in it. These are all entries taken from Church records and you should find something on your family.

Francois Florestin is my great grandfather b. 31 Dec 1854, d.7 Jan 1918. I am the granddaughter of Joseph and Edna Berthelot Delatte. My father Vernon Joseph DELATTE just passed away this February 2004. And yes, I also having been looking for the parents of Francois. He is listed in a family Bible with the spelling Francious Florestine, his grave in the Whitehall has his name as F F DELETTE. I found the church record of Joseph and Edna"s marriage in French Settlement, LA.
Francois was married to Marie Constantine BERTHELOT (dgtr of August BERTHELOT and Estelle MURPHY). As this is my first time on the message board, I see your post date was back in Oct 2000. Hope you haven"t given up.

I have viciously hooked most of the DELATTE/DESLATTE/DELATT/DELAT/DESLATTES/ get the picture? from the catholic records of Baton Rouge; SW Louisiana; South Louisiana; New Orleans; Thibodaux; and have quite a bit of information. Then I went and found alot of them in the census and believe me when I tell you that these people are mind boggling as to where they are and how they spell their names.

My g grandmother was Annie Idell DELATTE dau of Charles Robert DELATTE. I have information on Leufroy Francois DELATTE/DESLATTE.

Would like to share information with you for the correctness of my records as to spousal hookups.

Don't just stop at vol 14. I made a copy of all spellings of DELATTE from all volumes. Well worth the $ .10 a copy to have in your possession. You will re-visit those copies again and again.

What spelling was Florestan Francois going by in the 1860 census? Where was he? I have all else except for that one.

I haven't found him in the 1860 census. He is in the 1870 as 15 month old male Florestan, father Leufroz Deslatte, page 5, which translates into a birth date in 1868-69 unlike the 31Dec 1854 birth date I had. What info have you found on Leufroy Deslatte? Charlene
