I am trying to find who were the parents of Linton Joseph Fontenot.  I want to get in touch with any relatives of Linton.  He was from Eunice Louisiana.  Birth 9-28-1928 Death 9-28-1991.  He died on his birthday.  His father died in an automobile accident  when Linton was four  years old.  He had I think one brother and maybe 3 sisters. Linton was the youngest.  I want to find any living cousins, children anything.  Linton has a 67 year old daughter. She was born in Germany where he was while he was in military.  He left her mom before she was born. Daughter just wants some closure.  She has also done searches with no results.
An Albert Fontenot died in St Landry Parish at age 21, 5 Feb 1933.

La Tourte Fontenot, age 43, died there 26 Apr 1932.

Darius Fontenot, age 52, 6 Mar 1932.

Linton served in Viet Nam, but he died in Texas:

Dianne, I am from Melville, La. where my mom, Margie Popps is from. We moved in 1967 to where my dad is from, Big Lake, where Sylvia's cousins live. Thank you for helping her...

anonymous, Hi!  If, you would include either the birth place or death place.  I imagine one of us would be happy to try and help you.  You also, didn't include which country.  Finally, if you could mention a sibling or other member of the family the two names could be compared so, one could determine if they had found the correct person.  Many people share the same name and birth date.  Good luck in your search.

The only additional information I have is his wife'said name, Hedwig (Heddy).

I know he was stationed in Germany in 1949 and 1950.

He was from Eunice, Louisiana.

The census data is a long shot, however, you might try the County Clerk in Bexar, TX to see if there is a death certificate you can obtain that might have more information.

Uncle Linton was a practical joker. He sent his wife, Heddy, to the px for "dingleberries" to make him a pie. He was on meds long time due to a botched surgery. He last lived in San Antonio, Texas...
Thank you for giving me a glimpse of my biological father. That gave me a chuckle. I wish I'd known him.  Sylvia
He was in charge of USAF Military Funerals, and he loved to read "Leaves of Gold" (coffee table book). His mom was deaf/mute, he and family worked hard in cotton fields...
Thank you so much! Any information or remembrances you have of him and his family are truly appreciated.   Sylvia
Linton's parents were Paul and Aura Fontenot...
Aura's maiden name was Bertrand...
Linton has 2 family members in big lake, la. 70607...
Hi Ray, I have been in touch with Toby's wife, Donna and also Sherman. Toby took the DNA test through 23&me, as did I. Donna contacted me within 1 day of me recieving my results.  Sherman called me and texted me some pictures of your uncle (my father).  Although I have brown hair (now starting to go gray) and brown eyes, my eyes and eye brows are shaped exactly like his. The shape of my face is also the same. I'm hoping to meet you and your siblings  this coming winter.
I'm only related by marriage to Donna's sister Cheryl, but we loved Uncle Lin very much. I sent a friend request on facebook, because i fail the robot test here...
Hi Ray My name is Dianne Lavergne Holden I am a cousin of Sylvia.  I have been helping her to find information on her Father, Linton Fontenot.  She and I spoke a few days ago.  We are still trying to figure out how she and I can be first or second cousins according to Ancestry.  Your name sounds familiar.  Where are you from?  I am from Opelousas, Louisiana.
Dianne, I'm from Melville (1954-1967), we shopped in Opelousas on weekends. Thanks for helping Sylvia...
