"Before any one can be of assistance to you, you need to provide something more than a name. Start with things like; > when was she born > where did she live > who did she marry > why did you post her name in this forum"

I did read a little excerpt from the book when I visited the Ne-Do-Ba site.  Is this book still in print and available?  I would love to purchase a copy if you could tell me where I can get one. Its very possible my father-in-law, Bellmont House, was named after Louis, but he has never made reference to it, so he may be unaware that it's an old family name.  I am very curious about that side of the family as I have been unable to gather much information online.  Look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

Troy
