Marshal Walter H. White was my Great Grandfather. My Grandmother was adopted by Marshal White when she was a little girl her name was Claire Mercedes (Laurent) White. She also had a sister Eliose (Wezee) who was also adopted. Marshal White was married to Matilda Larent White and had (8) other children with her. They are Walter Jr., Huey, Jenny, Roland, Wayne, Roger, Glenda, & Ethel. From what my grandmother told me Marshal White was a Stern but Fair Man. My Grandmother (MawMaw) told me this story about a time when she was SUPPOSED to be grounded and snuck out. She went to a Party late one night and the Police were called. When she seen Marshal White she said she almost died, He didn't see her because she jumped out of a window to hide in her friends car. When she got home He said, so did you enjoy the Party. She said He was Fair with her she only had to do the dishes and Laundry for a Month. The Gunman was the owner of Barbes Dairy's Son, I don't have a name sorry. Anyone who reads this and you are Family would like to contact me Please do so. Barry J Falcon Jr.

After 53 years of wondering I'm finally making headway into learning something about my grandfather other than what my mother tells me. She's 86 and remembers him very well and always spoke very fondly of him. I knew he was a corageous man just from the stories my mother told me. This is just the first step to an ongoing geneaological profile I am starting. Any help would be deeply appreciated.
