Tracking down Aunt Cecile

Screen Shot 2019-04-25 at 5.30.55 PM.pngMy granny knew only a few things about her Aunt Cecile: She married an Ernest Giroir, had a few boys and died young.

Cecile was Mary Cecilia Gautreaux/Gauthreaux. She was the only daughter of Cordelier and Merante Aucoin Gautreaux/Gauthreaux.

I’d never found any trace of Cecile after she left home until I stumbled across notes Granny made that mentioned her husband’s name. Those notes led me to her marriage certificate. Her father and uncle witnessed the marriage.

Then I found Cecile’s son: Adolphe Adam Giroir.

It’s nice to add them to the family tree.
