>SURNAMES: Jeansonne/Johnson, Clark, Hebert, Dorris, White, Buchan

>From the Yahoo! Group:


I am searching surnames for both paternal and maternal sides of my
family lineage.

-paternal is JEANSONNE(JOHNSON)[Clark] and HEBERT
-maternal is DORRIS and WHITE [BUCHAN]
Grandparents:
Paternal: Charles Frank & Malinda (Jeansonne) HEBERT
and Maternal: William Edward & Mary Josephine (White) DORRIS
Great-grandparents:
Paternal: Flournoy (Flamoy, “Bug”) & Azelie (Jeansonne) HEBERT
and: Benoit & Louise Jane (Clark) Johnson/Jeansonne
Maternal: John & “Miss” (Painter) DORRIS
and: Greenberry & Elizabeth (Buchan) WHITE
I believe the following so far: White, Buchan’s and Dorris line came
to LA in mid (White & Buchan) and late (Doris) 1800s from Alabama,
county(ies) unknown. Heberts came to LA from Bourgonne region of
France via French colony in Alabama in 1760s, following 1763 Treaty
of Paris. Jeansonne/Johnson came to LA from Acadia (Canada) in 1760s
after the expulsion.
Any input or recommendations appreciated.
