DUBUISSON, ERWIN, TRIMM posted by Heather Dubuisson Email: dubuisson@ucsub.colorado.edu on Tuesday, October 14, 1997

Looking for information on Whitney ERWIN and his second wife, Melvina TRIMM. They lived in Washington Parish, but some of their children moved to St. Tammany. Whitney had about 11-14 children with his first wife. I only know of Artemis, Lela and Louis from he and Melvina, but their could have been more. Artemis married Alfred Joseph DUBUISSON. I believe Whitney was born about 1835, in Louisiana. I have no information on Melvina. Any and all information on this family would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance-Heather

Elizabeth GREEN is in the 1870 Washington Par. census, and living with her is Caroline TONEY, the daughter of Benjamin TONEY & Emily JONES. Benjamin has remarried and is in Pike Co MS (area now Lexie community in Walthall). Are the GREENs related to Caroline TONEY?
