I just recently found out that my grandmother's (Mary Ida Powell Walker) mother was a Bergeren or Bergeron.
Fedelize\Fedalise\Fidallie BERGERON is what I have come up with.
On census from 1860 to 1930 she is listed as from Point Coupee, Louisiana. A cousin recently told me that she is from France and could not speak English. She married a Jacob Powell.
Children are: Mary Ida Powell, Martin W. Powell, Ernestine Powell, Cornelius Powell and Dewey Powell. May be Dewey Jacob Powell.
Mary Ida Powell Walker was married to my grandfather Victor Winfield Walker. My dad is Leonard Allison Walker.
