Five of Governor Mouton's children, the two older daughters from his first marriage, the three younger children from his second marriage

The photo of the Mouton children is owned by Josie Dorman, widow of a Mouton descendant.  Her daughter, Angela Dorman O'Connor, restored the photo from an original in very poor condition.  Ms. O'Connor writes:  "The original picture was a gift to my father the late James Dorman son of the late Laura Mouton Dorman Sykes from his Uncle Wilmar Mouton from Orange, Texas." 

Many thanks to these fine folks for the use of their family pictures
