William Fruge was baptized Guillaume on 2 August 1826, having been born to Louis Fruge and Marie Louise Celeste Teal on 11 February 1824.[1]

William seems to have married Celeste Janis sometime after the 1850 census as he is living alone as a planter at the time of the 1850 census.[2] I'm currently unable to find Celeste in the 1850 census.

Interestingly in the 1860 census there is an 11-year old Aurore Fruge living with the couple. [3]

July 10-11, 1860 US Census of Hickory Flat, Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana
Dwelling #137, Family #139
William Fruge-36, Celeste-37, Aurore-11, Zoe-6, George-4, Alfred-2.
Celeste's mother and brother live in neighboring dwellings.

Known Children

  1. Aurore bn. ~1849 [3]
  2. Zoe or Zoia bn. ~1854 [3] This may be Joanna Fruge given Zoia is wed to Charles Bell in 1880 census.[4]
  3. George Paul W. bn. 25 January 1857.[5]
  4. Alfred Naster bn. 26 Feb. 1858.[6]
  5. Orealine Fruge
  6. Narcisse Fruge
  7. Moise Fruge

William appears to have died before the 9 June 1870 census as Celeste is listed as Mrs. William Fruge.[7] The record also uses the name Narcisse twice, but with the exception of Moises (who is called Narcisse) and Aurore, all of the children are listed as follows: Mrs. Wm. Fruge-45, Zoe-14, George-12, Alfred-10, Aureline-8, Narcisse-6, Narcisse [sic for Moses]-5.
