    Good old Google. I saw this reference after following a reference for Church Point and one Cecelia Ann Doureseau-Joseph (listed in the obit as Ceclia Joseph, Beaumont, Texas). I’m actually searching for Joseph’s in Church Point as well as the surrounding areas. The places, religion, and ages seem to match the Cecelia Joseph of Beaumont, Texas married to a John Joseph. If so, we have a “same set” of cousins.
