  • Name Tamelia Adelaide Mascey  [1
    Notes 
    • Tamelia was the daughter of Jean Aloysius Mascey, a colonial Creole, and Rosalie Fossier, a German Caost descendant. She was from a wealthy family and her marriage to Charles Cavelier must have been somewhat of a trial. In the lawsuit of her Father-in-laws's estate she complains that Charles was "unduly subject to his father and listened to everything her was told to do." She petitioned the estate in the name of her children, Charles' heirs, claiming that Charles had been forced to sign away his share of his mother's estate, which he should have inhereted and thus to his children. She was repesented by her sister Estelle's husband, Gustavus Schmidt, a prominent New Orleans attorney. The records of the sucession of Antoine Cavelier Jr. contain the letters from Charles and other documents supporting her claim. Though she apparentaly lost her suit, the documents show the life of these wealthy and prominent early families in New Orleans.
