This tells the first part of the story of Agatha Pitard Turnbull's death; she attempted to shoot her daughter Blanche, and herself, rather than let her daughter be taken back to an insane asylum. This is from the Times-Picayune, 18 July, 1919, p5.

This tells about the family of Rev. Thomas Browne, whose daughter Abigail married Hugh McLellan. Courtesy Brenda Pajor, McLellan family researcher. This is S236.
|3||"Hugh McLellan's Family Line"|
This is S235; it cites no sources, but describes the line from Bryce through Capt. Joseph McLellan to Maj. Hugh McLellan. Because there are no sources I regard it as less authoritative, but I believe that the author, William Barry, is associated with the McLellan-Sweat house.

I have transcribed and translated this in the "Degrange/McMillan Correspondence" (kept on the Louisiana Histories page). Isabel Narcisa "Buison" is here described as the daughter of Susanna "Laurren" and "Juan Buison." Later, however, this name appears regularly as "Mouchon." Why the name is different here is a mystery.
