Sunday, July 12, 2015 Barbara Jean Muir (1935-1999)

Barbara Jean Muir was born on 25 July 1935 in Rayne, Louisiana, to Henry "Jack" and Armitar Ormmueth (Alleman) Muir. She was their fourth child. She and her family were still living in Rayne when the 1940 census was enumerated and her father worked as a truck driver.

On 28 August 1951 Barbara Jean had a son she named Lester Joseph "Joe" Barbazan. I do not believe she married his father her marital status two years later was listed as single, meaning she wasn't divorced or a widow.

On 15 January 1953, at the age of 17, Barbara Jean married Isaac Junior Conrad in Sutton, West Virginia. Neither had been married before. Both Barbara Jean and Isaac were living in Orlando, West Virginia, at the time of their marriage. The couple had three daughters.

She next married Ray Emile Nehlig, Sr., on 15 June 1963 in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana. They had two children, Wanda Sue and Raymond Emile Nehlig, Sr., before divorcing on 15 April 1970 in the same parish. The dates for her marriage and divorce were provided by her daughter.

At some time before her death she married Dallas Bourque, but I know nothing about him. Barbara Jean died on 17 October 1999 of cancer at her home in New Orleans. She was 64 years old at the time of her death.
