     The fifth annual Foundations of Pointe Coupée Community Series Forum, hosted by Creole West Productions, is scheduled for 19 October 2013 from 10:00 a. m. to 3:00 p. m. at the Julien Poydras Museum & Arts Center in New Roads, Louisiana. Using the theme, “Tracing Pointe Coupée’s Creole Foundations from Nouvelle France: 1608 to 1740s,” the forum will explore the remarkable journey of the area’s early families who descend from some of the oldest settlers of North America, including such places as Quebec, Montreal, the Illinois country, and New Orleans.

     Admission to the event will be $25, which includes a light Creole lunch and entertainment. To assure seating, advance registration may be made online at www.pointecoupeehistory.com. Limited on-site registration will take place from 8:30 a. m. to 9:30 a. m. For further information, go to the website or contact Julie Eshelman-Lee at director@creolewest.com  (phone 225-718-4275).


     This week we continue the list of the names of members of Ruthven Chapter in Henderson, the county seat of Rusk County, for 1878-1879. The data can be found on page 80 of TRANSACTIONS OF THE M. E. GRAND ROYAL ARCH CHAPTER OF TEXAS AT ITS THIRTIETH ANNUAL CONVOCATION HELD AT THE MASONIC TEMPLE, IN THE CITY OF HOUSTON, ON THURSDAY, THE ELEVENTH DAY OF DECEMBER, A. D. 1879, A. I. 2409, AT THREE O’CLOCK P. M., which was published in Houston by W. H. Coyle, Printer and Lithographer, in 1880. (In the title, the M and E are each followed by three dots, representing the Triple Tau emblem of the organization. However, for simplicity, a period is used in this column. Because many of organization’s names of offices also include the Triple Tau emblem, only the initials of those ranks will be used in this column.)
