I too am trying to make the "oil thing" connection. My husband's Thibodeaux family received small checks for several years from the trustee for Louisiana State Mineral Board Boutte heirs. His grandmother was Alexandre-Emma Richard, daughter of Victor R. Richard b. 9/26/1824, and Celima Boutte b. 4/14/1828. Celima was the daughter of David Adelard Boutte b. abt. 1799 and Alexandrine Richard. D. Adelard's parents are listed as Antoine Boutte and a Loucille Carrier in Fr. Hebert's books. Could this be Lucille Decuir and Louis Hilaire Antoine Boutte? Any help on this or on the history of the "oil thing" would be greatly appreciated.
