    Notes 
    • Blazine sailed from Bordeaux in September 1866 aboard the windjammer "Jupiter" and arrived in New Orleans 5 December 1866. The passenger list of 109 names listed her occupation as a "seamstress." She married Louis Roquevert and together they owned and operated a dairy on Peters Avenue at Long Street (now Jefferson Avenue at Freret). They had a summer home in Ocean Springs, Mississippi where Louis died in 1890. Nine of their 13 children lived to adulthood; 7 resided in or near New Orleans. (Bennie Jay Zahn).

      In early 1901, George D. Bland (1853-1915), who managed the Beach Hotel at Ocean Springs...purchased the Louis Roquevert (1845-1890) place, an approximately eighteen-acre tract on Old Fort Bayou from New Orleanian, Blazine Penne Roquefort Barthe (1843-1916), the widow of Louis Roquevert.  This was the former site of Bradford's Landing.(Jackson County, Ms. Land Deed Book 24, pp. 77-79)  Here George D. Bland, established a truck farm and poultry business.  The Roquevert place was located today in the vicinity of Bayou Cove and Ray Street east of Vermont in Section 19, T7S-R8W.

    • (Research):An mtDNA sample supplied a direct female descendant of Blazine (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.

    Mitochodrial DNA (mtDNA), Haplogroup K
    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.
