I have been to track Edouard Navarre Rochon for a long time - problem has been that I was looking for a Edouard Navarre and recently found the Rochon part. I am a descendant of his first son - who I have as Edouard Navarre. Please email at either or

Thank you,

Hi, Chris--I am a great great grand daughter of Pierre Rochon ( his youngest daughter Antoinette, born around 1855 is my mother's grandmother. I am still confused by the following: Where did the Navarre Come in?
what info is available on the Guilbeau's connected to this family. where did the rochons come from? I thought maybe mobile? Also, Charles Rochon married Eleanore Neveu. My grandfather was Alexander Neveu, son of Charlotte Pamela Isidore and I believe Charles Neveu. Neveu's were also known as Armelin's. I would appreciate any info you can provide.
As to your family, did any live on what is the present day Chitimacha Reservation in Charenton, LA? Thanks for every thing - I have files on a few families and would be glad to send to you, just let me know which you are interested in. Thanks again,

Bonjour Thelma! It seems as though we are related! My immediate families are the LANDRY and VAVASSEUR families. My grt-grt grandmother was Josephine Rochon, daughter of Jean-Steril Narcisse Rochon and Elisa Castille. Steril was the son of Jean-Narcisse Rochon Charlotte Crene. I have done really really extensive research on the Rochon's. It appears that the progenitors of the Creole of Color Rochon family of the Attakapas were 5 Free Mulatto siblings that came to the Attakapas sometime around 1800 from New Orleans. They were the children of Charlotte Rochon. She bore children for two men : Jean-Baptiste Boisdore and Jean-Baptiste Navarre. Around the time of their marriage to other Free Creoles of the Attakapas, they employed both their father's surname and their mother's. I can give you a complete file on them and their descendants. It is much too extensive to provide in this little space...I do not have much on Pierre Rochon and his children and grand-children, for they moved away to Charenton while others stayed in the St-Martinville/New Iberia areas. Please contact me as soon as possible so that we can exchange info and perhaps get acquainted...After all, we are cousins! :)

Just a note on the ISIDORE/NEVEU line...Pierre Rochon's brother Prosper-Dorsili Rochon married Eleonore Neveu 24 Mai 1855, the daughter of Charles Neveu and Pamela-Charlotte Isidore. Pamela-Charlotte Isidore's brother, Francois-Gustan Isidore, married Pierre and Dorsili's first cousin, Estelle-Louise Rochon, 29 Jun 1846, the daughter of Narcisse Rochon and Charlotte Crene. It appears that the two ISIDORE siblings' mother was Charlotte Benoit, whom I believe was a slave.

Chris, parlez-vous Francais? Mon
Francais n'est pas facile comme d'autrefois. Si vous voulez, nous essayerons ecrire un peu en Francais.
Do you want me to send you the files I have on the Rochons, Neveu/Armelins/and Landry's that were sent to me from the US Indian Bureau? I can send them as Word files as an attachment. Also, I would appreciate receiving any files. I have collected tons of information, but as far as Pierre Navarre and ancestors, I would love to go back as far as possible. The files I have discuss that somewhat, but I would appreciate more. I am addicted. Thank you again...Cousin. thelma

Notre famille!
