Is it possible it is Gongues? I just googled it and it is a valid last
name....

Not sure at all. It could be. This is my first contact with the name; my
interest is strictly because of Josephine's mother being Jamaican.

In the 1900 census this name has the same sawtooth appearance (upstroke/
downstroke/upstroke/etc) but has an 's' on the end, may be Numas.

Sitat:
Henri

Numas and Henri are the only kids still at home in the 1900 census. It's
T623, roll 573 page 2 if that helps.

HeritageQuest indexes Charles as:

1880 > LOUISIANA > ST JOHN THE BAPTIST > 5-WD
Series: T9 Roll: 469 Page: 85
GOUGUES, CHARLES, 50, M W JAMA

Personally, I think the third letter is a w -- that little
serif at the upstroke? (see also Jules LOUIS, son of
Celestin on pg 85B which has the same u-by-a-high-start-next
letter combo); I don't see a Georges anywhere to compare
with, but two lines above Celestin is a Eugene, and the ug
combo doesn't have the serif.

There is another Numa on pg 85B and Henri is of course the
French version of Henry, so those two names are OK.

FWIW.

And a peripheral glance as I was closing the page leads me
to add -- it COULD be a double-e at the end of the word.
Not that it makes either option a more recognizable word,
mind, even in Louisiana, but it's an indexing option.

The final letter does not mimic other final s I see, nor
does it appear to be a t or d.

I have been surprised since I posted to find people named Numas and Melazi.
I thought I'd heard most first names before.

I'm going to look again once I uncross my eyes. :)

Kind of agree with Cheryl on the w: GOWGUES. But it could be an "u"
which is disconnected from the balance of the name. But I think the
final letter is an "s" - Monsieur Bourg's "s"es vary considerably from
one name to the next. The final "s" in Charles on the same line as
Gowgues/Gougues, in Ellis, James, and in not final but still
approximately the same treatment in Louise, Alphonse, Alphonsine,
etc., elsewhere on the page all seem to make it to be an "s".

I had a heck of a time transcribing the 1850 Census of Algiers (part of
Orleans Parish) for USGENWEB Census project due to handwriting.
But I think I won!
