A history of some of Louisiana's pioneer families.
Dr. Thomas Frére Kramer's commitment to accuracy and thorough documentation distinguish A Family Montage as a blend of fascinating accounts of triumphs, failures, virtues, and shortcomings. The result is a work that provides readers with a remarkably complete and faithful reconstruction of the lives of some leading Louisiana pioneer families.
Kramer's research spanned over fifty years and focused on hard, verifiable data rather than the fanciful claims of the family's earlier genealogists. Delving into the lineages of both "recent forebears and their descendants" and the first family members to arrive on American soil, A Family Montage is an impressive collection of pedigree charts, documents, images of places and people, personal correspondence and interesting memorabilia. This family history does more than just recount a long list of descendants; indeed, it fleshes out the lives that comprise this remarkable book. Included in this book are the families of Louis Kramer, Sr., Alexander Gabriel Frére, Emma Foster, John Brownson Marsh, and Maria Adele Gates. Also incorporated are biographies of members of the Alorge, Andry, Armant, Benjamin, B--â€šÃ‚Â©rard/Berard, Broussard, Cantrelle, Clark, Conkling, Cossitt, Craig, D'Aigle, Davis, Dayton, Demart, Dupain, Durant, Duvernay, Foster, Frére/Frere, Fuselier de la Claire, Gardiner, Gates, Georget, Hammond, Hirons, Henderson, Josselyn, Kr--â€šÃ‚Â¤mer/Kramer, La Pierre, Larmusiau, Lombard, Marsh, Martin, Mason, Mayer, Meillier, Morse, Murphy, Navarro, P--â€šÃ‚Â©cot/Pecot, Porter, Pr--â€šÃ‚Â©jean/Prejean, Raiford, Ransom, Rice, Roman, Smith, Taylor, Washer, Weber, Winans, Woodward, and Youngblood families.
The scope and accuracy of Kramer's research in A Family Montage establish new hallmarks of excellence for Louisiana genealogical studies, and the author is a master of relating captivating stories of some of the more memorable personalities of this distinguished Southern family. This volume of family history belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in Louisiana history.
