    Notes 
    • (Research):An mtDNA sample supplied a direct female descendant of Lucine (a child of Pat McGuire, the daughter of Josephine Morlas), was analyzed by FamilyTreeDNA in Houston. Their analysis showed the following Haplogroup assignment, along with the following differences from the Cambridge Reference Sequence.

      HVR1 Haplogroup
      K
      HVR1 differences
      from CRS
      16224C
      16519C

      The mitochondrial super-haplogroup U encompasses haplogroups U1-U7 and haplogroup K. Haplogroup K is found through Europe, and contains multiple closely related lineages indicating a recent population expansion. The origin of haplogroup K dates to approximately 16,000 years ago, and it has been suggested that individuals with this haplogroup took part in the pre-Neolithic expansion following the Last Glacial Maximum. William Hurst, on his Haplogroup K Website, writes that "Katrine," the founding mother of mitochondrial DNA haplogroup K, was one of the "Seven Daughters of Eve" as listed in the 2001 book of that title by Bryan Sykes. A lot of happened since 2001, but the book is still valuable.

      Katrine lived about 16,000 years ago. Perhaps the oldest known K descendant was Oetzi the Iceman whose frozen body was discovered in the Alps in 1991. Estimated at 5000 years old, the Iceman proved to have the basic mutations for a K: 16224C and 16320C. Every K is a cousin of Oetzi.

    Sample from Tom Strong, representing mtDNA he inherited from his mother, Patricia McGuire, going back through her mother, Josephine Morlas, Josephine's mother, Lucine Roquevert, and Lucine's mother, Blazine Pene. Based the research of Bennie Zahn of New Orleans, Blazine's maternal line can be traced back another four generations, to Marie Longanere born sometime before1730, presumably in the Hautes-Pyrénées region of France, where Blazine was born.

    After purchasing a Hupmobile, Lucine and her youngest daughters, Elenora and Vivian, flew to Detroit as part of the nationwide "Sky-Road Parade and Million Dollar Driveaway" promotion. The Party of seven included another purchaser, Sam Dander, as well and the owners/managers of New Orleans United Motor Car Company, Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Johnson. The plane was piloted by John Worthen. The trip probably occured in 1925 or after, when the straight-eight model of Hupmobile was debuted.

    Morlas Mausoleum, Metairie Cemetery, New Orleans
    This mausoleum was erected in the Metairie Cemetery in New Orleans at the death of John Dominic Morlas in 1923.

    It also became the final resting place of his wife, Lucine Roquevert, and their children: John Louis & wife Antoinette (Trapani) Morlas, Clothilde & husband Leon Bordes, Estelle & husband August Trapani, Louis & wife Lenora (Christoffer) Morlas, Leopold "Paul" & wife Olie (Roberts) Morlas, Vivian & husband Eugene Schoenfeld; as well as the resting place of several of John Dominic's grandsons; John Louis (I) Morlas Jr., Bertrand C. Morlas, John Louis (II) Morlas Jr., Sylvan "Brother" Bordes and Eugene "Jim" Schoenfeld, Jr.

    More so than any city this side of Paris, New Orleans is renowned for its historically significant and ornate necropolises. One of the parish's most unique "Cities of the Dead" is the eerily beautiful and diverse Metairie Cemetery. Built over the old Metairie Race Course, the cemetery was founded by Charles T. Howard. According to legend, when Howard was not allowed to join the country club that owned the track, he vowed it would become a cemetery. Many other famous Louisianans are interred here, in structures ranging from Gothic crypts to Romanesque mausoleums to Egyptian pyramids
