Biography

Eugène Gustave DeRouen

According to Creole and Free Person of Color genealogist Christophe Landry, Eugene was born in 1860 in Petite-Anse, and "Eugène’s parents are still unknown, but he almost certainly is a son of Éloi Derouen and one of his many slaves."[1]

Eugene Derouen, parents currently unknown, married Odelia Broussard, daughter of Eloi Rosemond Broussard and Josephine Celestine Lesser on 29 Jan 1881 in New Iberia, Iberia, Louisiana.[2]

  3. Theresa DEROUEN, b. 27 Sep 1883[5]
  4. Marie Olivia DEROUEN, b. 14 May 1885[6]
  5. Joseph Olivier DEROUEN, b. 12 Oct 1886[7]
  6. Elias DEROUEN, b. 2 Jun 1888[8]
  7. Antoine DEROUEN, b. 23 Aug 1890[9]

  14. Joseph Fils DEROUEN, b. 9 Jun 1905[16]
  15. Amanda DEROUEN, b. 12 Oct 1906[17]
  16. Agnes DEROUEN, b. 1 Jul 1909[18][19]

In 1910, Petite Anse Canal, Iberia Parish, Louisiana.[21]

Eugene DeRouen died in Iberia Parish, Louisiana, age 77, on 16 Feb 1937. [22]

Research Notes

The parents of Eugene Derouen are said to be Gustave and Estelle (Gary) Derouen. The problem is that Gustave was only 12 years old when Eugene was born. He didn't marry Estelle Gary until 1871 when Eugene was already 10 years old. Also census records indicate Gustave was white while Eugene was black.[23] Could not be the son of Marie Estelle Garry, born 1851 and married 1871. He probably isn't the son of Gustave Derouen who married Estelle in 1871. Disconnecting until there is proof of a relationship.

The two censuses cited have him born in 1860, not 1884.

Eugene is said to have been born in 1884 but he married in 1881? I believe his parents were wrong and disconnected them. More research is needed.
