   The first recorded marriage in the newly established Catholic Parish of Notre Dame de la Paix in Vacherie, Louisiana was on May 5, 1856, was that of Placide Falgoust and Clementine Scioneaux, my great-grandparents. They had 14 children who lived to adulthood and 71 grandchildren.

   Their children remained in the area but their grandchildren and great -grandchildren scattered to the West Coasst, the East Coast and states in between.
