WHERE DID IT ALL START?
The following is family history as we know it:
Papa Jules Joseph was married three times, his first wife's name is unknown. Our past historians of the family indicated that Papa Jules lived in Alexandria, Louisiana, and had two sons with his first wife. One of his sons is/was Joseph Joseph. Joseph Joseph last communicated with a family member, Ferdie Thierry, before moving to Oklahoma. Afterwards, Ferdie Thierry did not see, nor hear from Joseph Joseph again.

To this union, nine (9) children were born, namely Emily, Verlie, Anthony, Nathan, Victoria, Alma, Harriet, Olevia, and Margie. All nine (9) of these children married.
