Well, I've finally started a Blog.  I'm not sure how much I'll put up there, or how relevant any of it will be to most people, but I figure it's the next step. ;)

Growing Up in Davant
Written by Norbert Cazabat   
Friday, 18 August 2006

In a small town about forty miles south of New Orleans along the Mississippi River is where I grew up. And yes, there is still ground forty miles south of New Orleans, but not much. The name of the town is Davant, Louisiana.

The town had a lot of poor people, some well off people and a few rich families. We were of the first group from the standpoint of possessions. Our family life, however, was very rich and although we didn’t have much from a possession standpoint we had a wonderful family life. That family life included all of our uncles, aunts, cousins and even the children and grandchildren of my father’s first wife. It also included our Creole friends that weren’t related to us.

Our playground went from the batture (the area between the levee’ and the river itself) of the Mississippi River, to our front yard, to the levee of the back canal. The batture gave us all the free lumber we could use and the river was our swimming hole. In the summer we swam in the river and in the winter we spent a lot of time in the woods behind our houses.

Our front yard was our baseball and football fields. My uncle O’Neil added a room to his house and we had to move first base. A ball hit over the road was out – too many cars passing on the road.

The Cazabats of Davant, Louisiana

Although the Cazabat name originates in France; our branch of the Cazabats lived in a small town of Davant, Louisiana. Davant is about forty mile south of New Orleans on the east bank of the Mississippi River.

The community had a combination of white, black and Creole ethnic cultures.  I am Creole. Although there are several definitions to the term “Creole” we subscribe to the one that describes Creole as a person with several ethnicities including but not limited to French, Spanish, Native American and African American.
