I am a descendant of Gabrielle Savary and Jean Baptist Saucier. I grew up in Portage des Sioux, Missouri, which was settled by Francois Saucier. Enjoyed the stories, thanks so much. Am wondering if Gabrielle's grave can be found in New Orleans, as I think she ended up there. Thanks again..

What a wonderful discovery! I love your site! I had been working on my Saucier roots when I came across your website. I recently found a lot of our Saucier family traveled down the Mississippi to Kaskaskia, Illinois which was part of the Louisiana Purchase. This area is rich with Saucier ancestors. I was able to visit the fort that Jean Baptiste Saucier and Gabrielle Savary's son, Francois Saucier built in Kaskaskia. Francois would be my 6th great grand uncle. I took many pictures of the fort and of the historical house owned and lived in by my 5th great grand uncle Francois and Angelique LaPensee. The fort and the house are historical sights in Illinois.

Hi, Michelle... I've exchanged e-mails with you on Ancestry website. I'm the granddaughter of Earl Saucier (father also Earl D Saucier, mother Marion White). I have information to add to your geneology. If you would like, please contact me. Thanks!

Hello, a good friend of mine shared your site with me and I was very pleased reading these stories. I must ask, do you happen to haven any written or recorded accounts of the French that was spoken here on the Gulf Coast? My family are local Creoles and despite speaking French myself I'm 99% sure that I don't speak the same way that my great grandfather spoke French. Any info would be appreciated

I really enjoyed the information you have collected. I am descended from Marie Gabrielle Savary and Jean Baptiste Saucier. I was really excited to read about them both and of their lineage. Keep on with the good work. Georgia (Wood) Pennington

I am the daughter of H.C. "Blackie" Ladner. Reading the history of the brothers & sisters brings back such memories.
