My wife's great grandparents are the Eleazar/Planiter family from Pont Ste. Esprit. Her grandfather, Leon Joseph Eleazar came to Washington, LA with his parents. He subsequently married Elodie Guidry and they had two sons and several daughters. With one exception all of them are now deceased but they were living in Abbeville, LA when the children were in school. My wife's father, Eugene Leon Eleazar was the only child to remain in Abbeville and the other children lived in other parts of Louisiana with one even settling in Green Bay, WI.
If have some information on the family but essentially I am in the process of building their family tree (having just completed my own).
Hope this helps....e-mail if you have or need more information.
