Methilde Paula Trahan
Thank you for writing. We were always told she was "Mathilde Paula Trahan", and her baptismal records transcription supports that spelling, however, you are correct, her burial marker shows Methilde. I did not notice that until you pointed it. I changed the spelling of her name in the title bar of her memorial to Methilde to match the spelling on her burial marker.

"TRAHAN, Mathilde Paula (Albert & iola [Eda] ARCENEAUX) B. 25 June 1904 (Scott Ch.: v.1, p. 20)"

Thank you for pointing that out.

RE: Louise Helene Elfer Cambre
I made the correction. I think we corresponded a number of years ago. I am sending you a private message with Froisy information.

Please look at this- The parents were wrong but don't know where I got it- There is an online listin for St Joseph that list parents and that might be the source. Would you like for me to transfer this memorial to you. If so just use the edit for suggestions and I'll transfer. Thanks for the information. Jane
