MARY'S PAGE

My 4th great grandparents were Mathieu Sellers m. Marie Reine Aucoin of
Louisiana. Mathieu was born in South Carolina but married into a Cajun
family in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana in 1796.   I am descended through
their two of their children: Louis Sellers m. Aspasie Boudreaux and
Marie Marcellite Sellers m. Pierre Trahan.

 Mathieu Sellers' parents are identified as Mathieu Sellers and Esther
Neel (Neal, Nels) in the St. Martin Parish, LA church records.  I have
no further information on them.  Many researchers have claimed that a
William of Tarboro NC is the elder Mathieu's father, but I understand
now that this is probably not the case and that there is no evidence to
support it.  Therefore, I am looking for any information on who might be
the real parents of Mathieu (Matthew) Sellers and Esther Neel.
