Married Angele Caballero, widow of Anatole Acosta, October 10th 1907 in Brule Maurin, Assumption Parish, Louisiana. The couple had one child, Nicholas Anthony Albares, Jr. (grandfather) Nicholas and his family resided in Assumption Parish until World War 2.

A Puzzle

The census of 1910 that list this family is in error. I believe that it is mostly a communication problem, but Anatole Acosta listed as head of the household had died before Oct 1907 when Angele married Nicholas.
