history is courtesy
of Aline "MizMo" Theriot Meaux, a very fine set of old family photos.
from the top left in MizMo's own words: "This is 'Grandma August' , Telesphore
A. Theriot's mother, and her four oldest grand daughters. The one in the
back, with the frilly cap on is my Aunt Brigette, who lived to age 103."
"Grandma August with her step brother, a Mr. Roussell, who was also her
brother in law, because he married one of her sisters. 'Grandma August'
was the wife of Augustin Celestin, and the mother of Telesphore...
Her name was Rosalie Madeleine Drouet. 'Grandma August' moved to
Abbeville from Bayou du Large in Terrebonne Parish and lived with Telesphore
and Marie Elvina. She was living with them when she died. This picture...
was taken in Abbeville not long before she died."
"This is my dad, Alexandre Telesphore Theriot, taken in 1940 in Selma,
Alabama, when he was in his early fifties." The inset is ..."my dad at
age 19, when he had just become a married man."
"My grandparents, Telesphore A. Theriot and Marie Elvina Fanguy... She
was the daughter of Vincent Fanguy and Louisiana Watkins. This picture
was taken in Abbeville about 1900."
