    Notes 
    • He was known as Louis, and he was the only one of his family to emigrate to the United States. Bennie Zahn writes that he returned to France for a visit with his parents in 1878 at which time the birth of his eighth child was imminent. On 10 June 1878 he wrote to his wife, Blazine Pene, citing the great joy he felt embracing his family; both of his parents still living. While the sights of France filled him with admiration and while he rejoiced at being in his homeland and with his family once again, his thoughts were of his wife and children, and the joy he anticipated upon his reunion with them. His handwriting was neat and precise and his throughts were beautifully and sentimentally expressed, all of which tends to indicate that he was a well-schooled person.

      He died of stomach cancer when he was 45 year old; the youngest of his 13 children being just three years old. He spent the last months of his life at his summer home in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, where it was hoped that his condition would improve.

      On his Find A Grave memorial page, he is shown as being born in Deyme, France, not in Cazeneuve-Montaut. He is also shown as buried at the Evergreen Cemetery in Ocean Springs. No photo of a tombstone is posted, however. (# 77856016).

    • Bennie Zahn writes that the list of their children was gleaned from three sources, those names contained in legal property documents, those furnished through church records in France, and through the research of John and Brenda Holliman conducted in France. When Dominique died, there was an exchange of correspondence and legal documents between French lawyers and Lucine Roquevert Morlas. These documents indicate that all of the sons were deceased as of 1916, leaving one nephew in France and the children of Louis Roquevert in New Orleans as heirs. After many years of careful consideration and a personal visit to meet the relatives in France, Lucine as spokesperson for the family deeded the property interest to the nephew in France. It is not known if either of the two presumed daughters of Dominque had children, though records indicate that at least one had married.
