Haydel ( He and his brother Angelo and their brother-inlaw Emile Burch owned
and operated Gold Mine Plantation for abpot 20 years)

My dad served on the School Board in St.
John Parish for over 20 years and he owned a grocery store in Edgard for
many years, I grew up in Edgard and now live in Luling.
I have done research on the Champagne Line
and when I began there was little info on Evariste and his family--through
church and civil record in St. Charles, St. James and St. John I have have
done much research on his branch of the Champagne's. I would be happy to
compare and share info.
