Gulf Coast 1862-1863
The third generation of ancestors were born in the late 1800’s. “Alabama Lamey”, a gd/o Juan56iii, was born about this time, 1856–1862. She married Louis Bouzage, s/o Jean Valfrey, s/o Jean44i. In the 1930 census she is living on Dauphin Island with her daughter Annie. In the recollections of Georgiana Cassibry, she became acquainted with “Aunt Bama” when she moved to Dauphin Island in 1931 to teach and act as Principal of the school. “She lived alone and was very active and devoted to her family. I always enjoyed hearing her tell of the “early” days on the island. She told of the isolation and how they coped with it. They lived a good life. Food was no problem; seafood was plentiful, everyone owned cattle and hogs and chickens and had a garden. Wild ducks and geese were plentiful in the winter and fruit trees grew around every house. The residents shared their produce; if someone killed a “beef” it was shared with all. Sharing and neighborliness was a way of life. When ships would wreck off Dauphin Island the residents had a field day, salvaging materials that washed ashore, particularly lumber. When a banana boat would founder in the gulf off the island the beach would be littered with large bunches awaiting salvage.” (S) Bouzage Bosarge, P113, article by Yates Simonson.

Family notes:
Joseph lost part of his left leg while working alone on a fishing boat. He was fishing off of Chandelier Island in the “marsh” near the coast of LA. He was using a wench to bring in the nets and his leg got caught. The wench and tackle “chewed” his leg to just below the knee. He was with a elderly hired hand who had to apply a tourniquet. The hired hand got the boat back to Biloxi where the hospital at the time was located on the beach near the docks. (S) Cousin Arnie. Rodney Bond, his grandson by his daughter Trula, remembers “Papa Joe” removing his prosthesis and letting him play with it when he was little.
