  1. Her father was a free man of color and her mother’s heritage was Spanish and Native American.

    Octavie died in 1896, by which time Ozeme was invalid. At the age of 9, Edouard and his brother John (12) had to become bread winners.

    Ozeme Ory died in 1901. Octavie’s parentage has never been established to my knowledge.

  2. Edward “Kid” Ory id my 4 x 3 cousin and the cry lineage through his father is mine also. Ive traced the Ory family lineage all the way back to FRANCE through Louisiana.
