Born in southwest Louisiana. Served in the U.S. Air Force from 1975 to 1979. Was with the Louisiana State Police from 1979 to 1987. Then was with the U.S. Marshals Service until retirement in 2007. Currently consulting for an investigative firm. Started looking into the family history in about 1990. Unfortunately, many of my relatives had passed away before I could learn "their history" by word of mouth.
Both sides of my family originated in France and migrated to Canada. My fathers side to Acadia and mothers to Quebec. During the Acadian expulsion in 1755, Jean Savoie and his family were sent to New York. Jean and other family members then traveled to the Louisiana territory in the mid 1760's.
Joseph Mallet left Quebec and traveled south to Louisiana and arrived in the mid 1760's.
Both families ended up in south Louisiana.
