Surname Saturday: Thibodeaux

This week for Surname Saturday I am going to tell you about my research interest in the name Thibodeaux.

The Thibodeaux name is everywhere, misspelled all along the way. I am interested in the surname in 1820-1880 Acadia and St. Landry Parishes of Louisiana. That's it. No other parishes, no other time frames.

In this particular time and region there are several men named Pierre Thibodeaux. One of them is my third great grandfather. Most of the public member family trees on Ancestry say that the Pierre Thibodeaux born in 1835 is my man. I believe the 1829 Pierre Thibodeaux is the correct link, however, I've yet to prove that. Just a hunch.

So if you have an interest in these Thibodeauxs from this time frame, please drop me a line. I desperately want to get the right Pierre in my line, because from there, it's quite easy to go back further.
