A Mallett native who recently retired as a telecommunications attorney in Washington, D.C. has written a memoir of seven generations of her family.
Lovey Marie Guillory was in Eunice earlier this summer talking to three schools about her book and her experiences.
“Born on the Kitchen Floor in Bois Mallett” is the story of a free black Creole family from 1740 on.
Guillory traces her family’s beginnings to a slave named Marguerite, born around 1740, who won freedom for herself and her children in a 1783 Louisiana court case.
The Eunice News needs help in locating images of five servicemen killed during the Vietnam War.
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Foundation project “Faces Never Forgotten” is seeking missing photos of Vietnam veterans from Louisiana. These photos will help complete an electronic “Wall of Faces” in the new education center at the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
Those needed from the Eunice area:
James D. Feucht, Marines, killed May 7, 1968 at Quang Nam;
Charles Ray Williams, Army, killed Feb. 8, 1966, province unknown;
Gayle Keller, daughter of Reginald and Gerry Keller of Eunice, has received a 2014 Emmy nomination.
