Amy Ducrepont

Note: Died at 3 1/2 years and buried in Plaucheville cemetary. This was brought to my attention by Melvin Daigrepont 4/13/99. I had always thought there were only 7 children of Sidonia and Elise Daigrepont. Including Amy, would make a total of 8 children.

Bars and Lines

Note: The above information was gathered April 4, 1999. I was told that sometimes the name was spelled like it was pronounced. Notice the different spellings for Daigrepont.

The question mark dates are still being researched. All other dates and spellings are coming from church records and Melvin Daigrepont. Church records found at:

Mater Dolorosa Catholic Church
P.O. Box 8
Plaucheville, LA 71362
