15 Jun 1998/ Robert Miller

in response to RONQUILLO, Gladys Armstrong on Thu, 14 May 1998 Thanks for your response. Do you have any info on Juan Edmund Ronquillo's Children? He married Pauline Macles. Thanks

16 Jun 1998/ Nicolás de Cárdenas

in response to RONQUILLO, Robert Miller on Mon, 15 Jun 1998 Robert, Are you sure that your Edmund Ronquillo that married Pauline Macles, is the same as Juan Edmond Ronquillo? The reason I am asking is because Juan Edmond was born in 1817, and his son Manuel Ronquillo in 1866 (49 years later). Although, certainly not impossible, it doesn't seem very probable. Could your Edmund have been a son of Juan Edmond instead? Hope to clear this up, Nicolás.

16 Jun 1998/ Robert Miller

in response to RONQUILLO, Nicolás de Cárdenas on Tue, 16 Jun 1998 Yes, I have copy of marriage certificate from Archdiocese of N.O. Edmon Ronquillo of Plaquemines Parish, son of Juan Ronquillo and Marguerita Pinero married Paulinne Macles, daughter of Joseph Macles and Cathalina Alfonso , on 6/5/1854, St. Bernard Church. Baptism certificate of Manuel Anselm Ronquille, son of Edmond Ronquille and Pauline Macle, born 4/8/1860, St. Thomas Church, Pointe-a-la-hache, LA. *Note change in spelling, Macle French changed Ronquillo to Ronquille. Sorry about the error in 1866, that was the year Edmond died. You may also check with Shirley Bourquard, author of "Early Settlers of Delta ...." Please send any info that you might have. It would be greatly appreciated.

17 Jun 1998/ Nicolás de Cárdenas

in response to RONQUILLO, Robert Miller on Tue, 16 Jun 1998  Robert, Thank you for your response. What kind of information are you looking for? Nic.

04 Jul 1998/ Sally E. Viada

in response to RONQUILLO, Robert Miller on Tue, 16 Jun 1998 Hi Guys, I think the confusion is that Marguerita Pinero's husband is Juan Leonce s/o of Juan Ronquillo. Sometimes the records leave out the Leonce. I helped Shirley with the book "Early Settlers"", as she mentioned in her acknowledments, and the Ronquillo records had a number of mis-spelled and left out words. The French were good at that. For example, most Marie Louise and Marie Theresa's were simply Marie in the records. Try to figure that one out when you are compiling a family. Sally

05 Jul 1998/ Robert Miller

in response to RONQUILLO, Sally E. Viada on Sat, 04 Jul 1998 Yes, Sally, I knew that Juan Leonce was married to Margarita Pinero, he was the son of Juan Ronquillo and Graciana Solis. I wonder if the father Juan had a middle name like his son and father, Juan Nicholas.

21 Oct 1998/ Patricia Barras

Her mother's name Eleda Giordano,(d) Francisco Chartier and Suzanne Treadaway, etc. If anyone has any imformation on this Roussell, I will be greatful.

in response to ronquillo, candace boyle on Mon, 12 Oct 1998 I have a Anselmo Eugene Ronquillo, who married Clara Coraly Solis, but you were looking for a female?

07 Dec 1998/ Robert Miller
