I was able to find this on a google search, I placed the link below. Although, I am sure you already have this information. I am from Carencro, but I have no knowledge about the Conques family. It seems as though he is buried in Saint Peter Catholic Cemetery in Carencro. If you can find descendants of Mr. Conques that would probably be your best bet. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

thank you.
i do have this information already. I have a family book by them . It do not say where his lands was or the blacksmith shop or other stuff like that was at. My son play baseball at the park between Lafayette and Carencro and they had a store on the corner. i was wondering if this was where his farm was and also the store that is in the book. the book do not name the store or where the farm was located or the race tracks. I was hoping some one have an idea about them.

I'm from Carencro but that's way before my time. I've gone to a facebook group with your questions. This group is involved in the history of Lafayette. Carencro is part of Lafayette parish. Have you ever visited Carencro? It's amazing that such a small town once had a movie theater and horse racing track. Though the theater, race track, and railroad are long gone, the town has developed in other ways.

I lived in Lafayette area from 1970 to 2010 and yes I been there a lot of times. Dons just northwest of Carencro makes the best food around. ate there a lot as I worked around and in Carenrco. I a painter and my boss sent them there a lot. Like at St Peters.
My boy played at the baseball fields on the Carencro hywy and for some reason I thinking that where the farm was at? not sure so I guess i going to have to go and look it up in the books at the parish in Lafayette.
thank you and i going to look for that page on FB.
