21 Aug. 2009 Was just able to connect with the grand daughter of Edwin Fucich and Beth tells me that she will be sharing pictures of Uncle Edwin and hiw wife along with their only son, Lee Fucich, Sr. and wife. Looking forward to receiving them and posting some on this site.

2/12/2009 SAD NEWS, Our Cousin Noelie Dick Crosslin got her Angel Wings today:
Noelie Francis Crosslin, 75, of Sparta, passed away Feb. 12, 2009.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Narcisse Mark and Virgile Fucich Dick; son, James Crosslin; and sister, Rosemary Holmes.

June 2008: With the help of a new found 2nd cousin and her mother, we have been able to find out what happened to Blasius Fucich, brother of my Great Grandtather Simeone M. Fucich, Sr. For years we have seached for Blasius, aka: Blaze, but never found why he left no tracks after 1888. Sheryl told us that he was killed by a lighting bolt on May 28, 1888. She even sent us a copy of the newspaper article. Thank You Sheryl and daughter Jenelle for coming into our lives.

We will have lot more family data to post at a later date.

SIMEONE M. FUCICH, SR. arrived in Louisiana or Mississippi in 1867 from Mali Losinj, Croatia where he lived with his uncle Antonio in Mississippi for two years. He and his uncle moved to New Orleans in 1869 or 1870. Brothers, Blazich, Francis, Peter, and John arrived in Louisiana sometime in the next couple of years. Simeone married Caliste Martinez in Donaldsonville, La. in August 1874. They moved to New Orleans, where he opened Fucich and Sons Seafood Shop at 530 to 532 Dumaine St. He also owned property in the Pointe-a-la-hache area. He had the Nestor Canal dug and the Fucich Bayou is named after him.
I need any and all info on Simeone, his brothers and their related families. I will be happy to share info with you. THANKS

November 21, 2001 New Orleans, Louisiana
Today, Roberta Leah Lienhard Fucich has gone to heaven to be with her husband, our father, Simeon M. Fucich, III. The two of them, I am sure, are looking down at all of us, wondering how they were able to raise all five of us and to keep their sanity. You all have a good time together, we love and miss you.
