Sonny Williams My name is Sonny Williams, born in Alexandria, La., raised in Bossier City, now living in Mo. But my mother's family is from the Cane River, her maiden name was Rachal. I have tried for years to get answers about my heritage on her side. Her family is buried in the Rachal cemetary near Marco, La. I have noticed there are Rachals of color and Rachals that are "white". Yet so many have the same first names, particularly the older generations. My grandmother (mom's mother) was a Brossett. Are there blood connections with all these people. I want to know who my people are and can't get answers. I just find it hard to believe that names like Brossett, Rachal, LaCour, and so many others are both "white" and of color and yet I'm told there is no relation. Can anyone help me?
