I am a descendant of Jean Baptiste Champagne and Marie Charlotte Edelmayer through their youngest son Evariste and his wilf Calixte Schexnayer.  Line line runs as follows:
 Jean Baptiste Champagne and Catherine Mouton
 Jean Baptiste Champagne and Marie Charlotte Edelmayer  
 Evariste Champagne and Calixte Schexnayder (They lived in St. James Parish from the 1815-20 until their deaths)
 Adam Evariste Champagne and Francoise Elodie  Hebert  (They lived in St. John Parish)
James Evariste Champagne and Marie Gracieuse Haydel ( He and his brother Angelo and their brother-inlaw Emile Burch owned and operated Gold Mine Plantation for abpot 20 years)
Paul Joseph Champagne and Aline Marie Copponex  (They lived in Edgard)
Francis Xavier Champagne and Retta Marie Troxler
Charlotte Ann Champagne                                 
     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.
