But Reed, sister to "Uncle" Lionel Batiste of the Treme Brass Band, has little doubt as to the true originator: Alma Trepagnier Batiste. "My mother started out with her club," she says. "They were the original Baby Dolls downtown, the first Baby Dolls that came out."
In reference to above quote: my grandmother was a trepagnier, but I know very little about her geneaology. If anyone, has more info on the trepagnier line I'd appreciate a post. Thanks
