In New Orleans: a marriage certificate for a Pierre Dragon
dated July 2, 1804 in which his father's name is given as Joseph.
The mother's name was somewhat less discernible as it is written
as Margart Bodein but [the writer has] seen other spellings
since the original certificate is not very legible. Pierre probably
came down the rivers to New Orleans where he settled.

started out in a shoemaker's shop. There is a printed name of
"DRAGON NO.1" on one side of it. "
One of our Dragon cousins found a milk bottle in a yard
sale: its label is for DRAGON DAIRY. Any ideas?

suggests: "the bottle could have come from my uncles milk
bar in Shefield.It was called Dragon's F 2 Milk bar.That only
goes back about 25 or 30 years ago."

writes, "When I was a kid in the 30s/40s, we'd stop there
