Earlier, I blogged about the murder of Alexis Celestin Benoit’s son, Silvin, who died on the streets of Houma in 1868. It turns out he wasn’t the only son of Alexis Celestin Benoit to be murdered.
Silvin’s little brother, Paulin, also was murdered. What was going on with the Benoits?
Paulin’s death involved my own ancestor, Joseph Alfred Benoit. Joseph was my g-g-grandfather.
Here are the details:
Poor Paulin died, but Joseph recovered. He married Marie Felicia Bergeron three years later and built a family.
I’m going to have to see if I can discover more!
