207 From the city battalion of uniform companies to major-general Jackson.

New Orleans, March 16, 1815

GENERAL-We have delayed until this moment the expression of our feelings towards you, lest the honest emotions of our hearts should be ascribed to a desire of propitiating the favor of our commander. At this moment when neither hope nor fear can be supposed to have influenced us, we pray you to receive the sincere tribute of our thanks — as soldiers for the confidence you have reposed in us, for the paternal cure with which you have watched over our comforts, and above all, for that justice you have done to our zeal in assigning us on every occasion a post of danger and of honor—as citizens, for the wisdom of the measures you have devised to protect our country; for the skill and bravery with which they were executed; and for that indispensible energy to which we owe our safety. Leaving to others the task of declaiming about privileges and constitutional rights, we are content in having fought in support of them--we have understanding enuogh to know when they are wantonly violated; and no false reasoning shall make us ungrateful to the man whose wisdom and valor has secured them to us and our posterity! We do not deal in professions, but we pray you, general, to be assured, that in the officers and men of this battalion you have soldiers who have been and are always ready to affront every danger under your command; fellow citizens, grateful for your services; friends, personally attached to your fortunes, and ready to promote your happiness at the risk of their own. You have allowed us the endearing title of your brothers in arms--it was given to us on this field, strewed then with the bodies of our enemies; and we feel a noble pride in the conciousness that allows us to accept it. That fraternity cemented in hostile blood shall be the pride of our lives; and in after times will secure to our children the respect of posterity. General, common phrases cannot express the emotions which agitate us at this moment of our separation--but we pray heaven to watch over your safety ; and we trust to a grateful country for the honors and advancement which your services have merited.

Fellow Soldiers--Popular favor has always been with me a secondary object. My first wish, in political life, has been to be useful to my country. Yet I am not insensible to the good opinion of my fellow citizens ; I would do much to obtain it ; but, I cannot, for this purpose, sacrifice my own conscience, or what I conceive to be the interests of my country. These principles have prepared me to receive, with just satisfaction, the address you have presented. The first wish of my heart, the safety our country, has been accomplished, and it affords me the greatest happiness to know that the means taken to secure this object have met the approbation of those who have had the best opportunities of judging of their propriety, and who, from their various relations, might be supposed the most ready to censure any which had been improperly resorted to. The distinction you draw, gentlemen, between those who only declaim about civil rights and those who fight to maintain them, shews how just and practical a knowledge you have of the true principles of liberty--without such knowledge all theory is useless or mischievous. Whenever the invaluable rights which we enjoy under our own happy constitution are threatened by invasion, privileges the most dear, and which, in ordinary times, ought to be regarded as the most sacred, may be required to be infringed for their security. At such a crisis, we have only to determine whether we will suspend, for a time, the exercise of the latter, that we may secure the permanent enjoyment of the former. Is it wise, in such a moment, to sacrifice the spirit of the laws to the letter, and by adhering too strictly to the letter, lose the substance forever, in order taht we may, for an instant, preserve the shadow? It is not to be imagined that th eexpress provisions of any written law can fully embrace emergencies which suppose and occasion the suspension of all law, but the highest and the last, that of self preservation. No right is more precious to a freeman than that of suffrage, but had your election taken place on the 8th of January, would your declaimers have advised you to abandon the defence of your country in order to exercise this inestimable privilege of the polls? Is it to be supposed that your general, if he regarded the important trust committed to his charge, would have permitted you to preserve the constitution by an act which would have involved constitution, country and honor, in one undistinguished ruin?

What is more justly important than personal liberty ; yet how can the civil enjoyment of this privilege be made to consist with the order, subordination and discipline of a camp? Let the sentinel be removed by subpoena from his post, let writs of habeas corpus carry away the officers from the lines, and the enemy may conquer your country, by only employing lawyers to defend your constitution.

Private property is held sacred in all good governments and particularly in our own, yet, shall the fear of invading it prevent a general from marching his army over a cornfield, or burning a house which protects the enemy?

These and a thousand other intances might be cited to shew that laws must sometimes be silent when necessity speaks. The only question with the friend of his country will be, have these laws been made to be silent wantonly and unnecessarily? If necessity dictated the measure, if a resort to it was important for the preservation of those rights which we esteem so dear, and in defence of which we had so willingly taken up arms, surely it would not have been unbecoming in the commander in chief to have shrunk from the responsibility which it involved. He did nit shrink from it. In declaring martial law, his object and his only object, was to embody the whole resources of the country for its defence. That law, while it existed, necessarily suspended all rights and privileges inconsistent with its provisions. It is matter of surprise, that they who beast themselves the champions of those rights and privileges, should not, when they were first put in danger by the proclamation of martial law, have manifested that lively sensibility of which they have since made so ostentatious a display. So far, however, was this from being the case, that this measure not only met, then, the open support of those who when their country was invaded thought resistance a virtue, and the silent approbation of all—but even received the particular recommendation and encouragement of many who now inveigh the most bitterly against it. It was not until a victory, secured by that very measure, had lessened the danger which occasioned a resort to it, that the present feeling guardians of our rights discovered that the commanding general ought to have suffered his posts to be abandoned through the interference of a foreign agent—his ranks to be thinned by desertion, and his whole army to be broken to pieces by mutiny ; while yet a powerful force of the enemy remained on your coast and within a few hours sail of your city.

I thought and acted differently. It was net until I discovered that the civil power stood no longer in need of the military for its support, that I restored to it its usual functions ; and the restoration was not delayed a moment after that period had arrived.

Under these circumstances, fellow soldiers, your resolution to let others declaim about privileges and constitutional rights, will never draw upon you the charge of being indifferent to those inestimable blessings—your attachment to them has been proved by a stronger title—that of having nobly fought to preserve them. You who have thus supported them against the open pretensions of a powerful enemy will never I trust, surrender them to the underhand machinations of men who stand aloof in the hour of peril, and who, when the danger is gone, claim to be the "defenders of your constitution."

An honorable peace has dissolved our military connection; and, in a few days, I shall quit a country endeared to me by the most pleading recollections. Among the most prominent of these, gentlemen, are those I shall ever entertain of the distinguished, bravery, the exact discipline, the ardent zeal and the important services of your corps. The offered friendship of each individual composing it, I receive with pleasure and sincerely reciprocate. I shall always pride myself on a fraternity with such men, created in such a cause.

213 She was married to a rich young cotton merchant and went to New Orleans to live. He died there after but a few years of happiness, leaving two children and a fortune to his wife. The children died and the young lady gave herself up to the life of a young widow.

But after a while she was induced to go to the opera, and there was Gayarre, the most distinguished man in the State, who was pointed out to her, tall, handsome, and distinguished-looking, proud, and haughty. He had been Senator and was the celebrated author of a history of Louisiana. His fame filled the country.

'Who is the beautiful lady?' asked the judge, running his supercilious eye over the other open boxes.

'A young widow from Mississippi,' was the answer.

In a flash he recognized his destiny, prophesied by a celebrated fortune teller in Paris who had predicted he would marry a rich beautiful widow.

'Present me!" he said.

But no fortune teller had prepared her. None was needed. To have a great man ask her to marry him was to assure her assent, and so they were married.

221 Major Henry Clay Mcdowell, who died on his fine estate, "Ashland," near the city of Lexington, Fayette county, on the 18th of November, 1899, was a scion of a family whose name has been one of marked distinction in connection with the annals of American history and one of special prominence in the state of Kentucky. A man of high character and exceptional ability, Major McDowell left a definite and benignant impress upon the history of Kentucky, and his influence penetrated into the industrial and civic affairs of the state in no uncertain way. He was an able member of the state bar, was called upon to serve in various positions of public trust and was a potent factor in connection with various lines of productive enterprise after his virtual retirement from the work of his profession. He well upheld the prestige of the honored name that he bore and such were his life and labors that it is altogether consonant that in this publication be entered a tribute to his memory and a brief record of his career, which was one of signal usefulness and distinction.

Henry Clay McDowell was born at Fincastle, Botetourt county, Virginia, on the 9th of February, 1832, and was a son of Dr. William Adair and Maria Hawkins (Harvey) McDowell. Dr. McDowell was one of the distinguished representatives of the medical profession in Kentucky and was engaged in practice in the city of Louisville for a number of years. He made a special study of pulmonary tuberculosis, commonly designated consumption, and was particularly successful in the treatment of this dread disease. A treatise which he prepared "On the Curability of Consumption in All Its Stages" attracted bitter and condemnatory attention on the part of the medical profession of Louisville. But long after his death it was recognized as the first specific work ever published concerning tuberculosis and its treatment. It was written long before the distinguished Bennet published his views on the subject. This valuable work was published in 1843. Dr. William Adair McDowell was born near Harrodsburg, Mercer county. Kentucky. March 21, 1795. After his mother's death his early boyhood was passed with his uncle. Dr. Ephraim McDowell, whom he later assisted in many of his operations. He received an excellent education along both general and professional lines, and graduated in the Medical School of Philadelphia. He finally retired from the practice of his profession so far as possible and he passed the closing three years of his life in Indiana, at his country home on the Ohio river, where he died in 1853, at the age of fifty-eight years, secure in the high regard of all who knew him. His appointment as surgeon of the Marine Hospital of Indiana reached him just after his death. His wife was born in Fincastle, Virginia, and was a daughter of Matthew and Magdalene (Hawkins) Harvey. She survived him by more than a score of years and was summoned to eternal rest in 1876, at a venerable age. They reared eight children to maturity, namely: Sarah Shelby, Mary. Ann, Henry Clay, Magdalene, John (died in New Orleans). Major William Preston (wounded severely at Perryville, served till the end of war), and Captain Edward Irving (killed at Resaca. Georgia, in 1864. aged twenty-one).

The lineage of the McDowell family is traced back to staunch Scotch-Irish origin and representatives of the same established homes in America in the Colonial epoch of our national history. The founder of the family in Kentucky was Colonel Samuel McDowell, who was born in Virginia, in 1735, and who passed the closing years of his life near Danville, Boyle county, Kentucky, where he died in 1817. He was a son of John McDowell, whose father, Ephraim McDowell, emigrated to America from Ireland in 1729. He remained for a number of years in Pennsylvania and then removed to Virginia, where he continued to reside until his death. Colonel Samuel McDowell was reared and educated in Virginia, and, as has well been said, he was the "founder of a family of patriots." He was a valiant soldier in the French and Indian wars and served under General Washington in the campaign of the Monongahela valley m I75S; in th1s connection he received commission as captain of his company. In 1775, in recognition of his effective military services, a large tract of land in Fayette county, Kentucky, was surveyed and awarded to him. When the war of the Revolution was precipitated he promptly tendered his services in the cause of independence. He was commissioned colonel and assigned to the command of a regiment of militia from Augusta county, Virginia. His regiment was with forces of General Nathaniel Greene at Guilford Court House. North Carolina, with which it was also present at the surrender of General Cornwallis. at Yorktown. He proved a gallant commanding officer in the Continental line and took part in a number of the important engagements marking the progress of the great struggle which hurled oppression back and gained the boon of national liberty.

Prior to the Revolution Colonel McDowell had several times represented Augusta county in the Virginia house of burgesses, and when the revolutionary measures were brought forward he was a delegate from his county to the convention held at Richmond, Virginia, on the 20th of March, 1775. as was he also to the later convention which assembled at Williamsburg and formulated definite plans for the impending conflict. He was a member of the state council of Virginia after the close of the war and was appointed surveyor of public lands in Fayette county, Kentucky, a section then comprising about one-third of the present area of the state, which continued to be a county of Virginia until 1790. In 1783 Colonel McDowell established his home in Kentucky and entered upon the active discharge of his official duties. In the same year he was appointed one of the judges of the first district court held in Kentucky, and from the beginning of his residence here he was one of the most prominent and influential citizens of the state, in whose organization as an independent commonwealth he played a most conspicuous part. He was president of the convention of 1782, which framed the first constitution of Kentucky as an independent territory, and he was not only one of the first to serve as judge of the circuit court in the new territory, but also one of the first district judges of Kentucky, under the federal jurisdiction, his appointment to this office having been made by General George Washington, who was then president of the United States.

Colonel McDowell married Miss Mary McClung, who was born in Ireland and who was of staunch Scotch ancestry. They became the parents of seven sons and four daughters. The eldest son. Major John McDowell, well upheld the military prestige of the name through his services as a gallant officer in the war of 1812. and the latter's son. Dr. Joseph N. McDowell, of Missouri, became one of the most distinguished surgeons of the United States. Colonel lames McDowell, the second son of Colonel Samuel McDowell, was another of the patriot soldiers of the family. He not only served in the Continental line in the war of the Revolution but was also an officer in the war of 1812. The third son. William, became a representative member of the bar of Kentucky. The sixth son. Dr. Ephraim McDowell, attained high distinction in the medical profession and pained in that connection the title of "father of ovariotomy." He was educated at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and engaged in the practice of his profession at Danville, Kentucky, where he was the first to perform a successful operation for the removal of ovarian tumors. This operation, the first of the kind ever performed&emdash;after much persecution at home&emdash; attracted widespread attention on the part of the medical profession both in America and foreign countries, and in recognition of his distinguished services the representatives of his profession in Kentucky erected to his memory, fifty years after his death, a fine monument at Danville, where he had continued to reside until his death. He was born in Rockbridge, Virginia, November 11, 1771, and died in Kentucky, June 25, 1830. He married Sarah, daughter of Isaac Shelby, first Governor of Kentucky.

Colonel Samuel McDowell, Jr., the fourth son, and the grandfather of H. C. McDowell, was another who added laurels to the patriot crown of the family. He was born in 1764 and thus was a mere youth at the time when he entered the ranks of the revolutionary forces. He served in the command of General LaFayette and was present at the surrender of General Cornwallis, the capitulation that marked the close of the great struggle for independence. He, like his father, received supplementary honors after the close of the Revolution, as in 1789 he received from President Washington appointment as the first United States district marshal of the district of Kentucky. He retained this position also during the administration of President Adams and during a part of that of President Jefferson. At the time of the inception of the Civil war twelve grandsons of Colonel Samuel McDowell, Jr., were living and all of the number were in sympathy with the cause of the Union, though nine of the number were residents of southern states. One was killed by "bushwhackers" at his home in Missouri at the beginning of the war; nine served as officers in the Federal armies; one was physically incapacitated for military service; and the last of the twelve was too young for enlistment. One of the sons. Abram, was the father of Major General Irvin McDowell, of the United States Army, and the fourth son was Dr. William A. McDowell, father of him to whom this memoir is dedicated.

Major Henry C. McDowell was afforded excellent educational advantages in his youth and he thoroughly fortified himself for the work of his chosen profession, in which connection it should be noted that he was graduated in the Louisville Law School, from which he received his degree of 'Bachelor of Laws. He forthwith engaged in the practice of his profession in the city of Louisville,where for a number of years he was associated with his brother-in-law, Judge Bland Ballard, under the firm name of Ballard & McDowell. He was a man of broad mental ken and mature judgment and he soon gained a place of prominence as one of the representative members of the Kentucky bar. He was known as a versatile and resourceful advocate and was identified with much important litigation in both the state and federal courts prior to the Civil war. He was among the first in Kentucky to tender his services in defense of the national integrity after the darkcloud of civil conflict obscured the country's horizon. Early in 1861, in response to President Lincoln's first call for volunteers, he enlisted in a Kentucky regiment and was soon afterward commissioned assistant adjutant general by President Lincoln. In this capacity he served on the staffs of Generals Rousseau and Boyle, and in 1862, suffering from effects of camp fever, he resigned the office to accept that of United States marshal for Kentucky. This appointment was conferred by President Lincoln, and as incumbent of the office which had been held by his grandfather many years previously Major McDowell did fully as effective service in behalf of the Union as he could have given as an officer with the military arm of the government service.

Major McDowell did not resume the practice of his profession after the close of the war, but located on a farm in Franklin county, where he remained until 1883, when he removed to "Ashland," the fine old estate formerly owned by Henry Clay, in Fayette county, where he gave his attention to the raising of thoroughbred horses during the remainder of his active career. He became one of the representative breeders of fine horses in Kentucky and in this line did much to uphold the high reputation so long enjoyed by this commonwealth in this interesting field of enterprise. Major McDowell was a man of fine intellectual powers and had those sterling characteristics that ever beget popular confidence and esteem. He was progressive and public-spirited and gave his executive and capitalistic support in the promotion of many enterprises tending to advance the general welfare of his state. For a number of years he was president of the Kentucky Union Railroad, now the Lexington & Eastern Railroad Company, of which his son William A., of Lexington, is now general manager, and as a man of prominence and influence he left a beneficent impress upon his day and generation, the while he ever held secure vantage ground in the confidence and regard of his fellow men. He was a staunch and effective exponent of the principles and policies of the Republican party and was identified with various social organization of representative order.

On the 21 st of May, 1857, was solemnized the marriage of Major McDowell to Miss Anne Clay, who was born in the city of Lexington, this state, and who is a daughter of Lieutenant Colonel Henry Clay, the third son of the illustrious statesman, Hon. Henry Clay. Colonel Clay was graduated with high honors in the United States Military Academy at West Point, as a member of the class of 1830, and later he studied law and was admitted to the Kentucky bar. He engaged in the practice of his profession in Louisville, and upon the outbreak of the war with Mexico he was commissioned lieutenant colonel of a Kentucky regiment, with which he proceeded to the front and in command of which he continued until the battle of Buena Vista, in which he met his death. He was born on the 10th of April, 1811. In 1832 Colonel Clay married Miss Julia Prather, daughter of Thomas and Matilda (Fountain) Prather, of Louisville, and she preceded him to the life eternal. Of the three children who survived the devoted mother Mrs. McDowell is now the only one living. Henry, the elder of the two sons, served as captain in the Union army during the Civil war, and the younger son, Thomas Julian, was a captain in the Confederate service, in which he continued until his death. Mrs. McDowell still remains at "Ashland," the old family estate of her distinguished grandfather, Henry Clay, and one of the finest in the entire state of Kentucky. Its material attractions are on a parity with its great historic interest and the place is endeared to Mrs. McDowell by the gracious memories and associations of the past.

In conclusion of this brief memoir is entered an eptimoized record concerning the children of Major and Mrs. McDowell: Nanette is the wife of Dr. Thomas S. Bullock, a representative physician and surgeon of Lexington, Kentucky, and they have one son, Henry McDowell Bullock. Henry Clay McDowell. Jr., was a distinguished member of the bar of the state of Virginia, and resides in the city of Lvnchburg. Campbell county, where he is now serving on the bench of the United States district court; he married Miss Elsie Clay and they have no children. William A. McDowell is one of the influential citizens of Lexington, Kentucky and, as previously stated, is general manager of the Lexington & Eastern Railroad. He married Miss Alice Dudley and they have one son. William C. Thomas Clay McDowell, the fourth of the children of Major McDowell, resides in Lexington and is one of the prominent and successful breeders of thoroughbred horses in this section of the state. He married Miss Mary Goodloe, and they have two children, Anne Clay and Goodloe. Julia P., the fifth child, is the wife of William Brock of Lexington, Kentucky, and they have two sons, William and Clay. Madeleine is the wife of Desha Breckinridge, of Lexington. Ballard, the youngest of the children, died at the age of four years.

225 PAUL BRUNEAU was born about 1624 in LaRochelle, France. In History of the Huguenot Emigration to America, it states that "Among the members of the noblesse of Aunis that continued faithful to the Huguenot cause, in these days of augmenting persecution, were several who afterwards formed part of the emigration to South Carolina. Paul Bruneau de Rivedoux, Écuyer, son of Arnaud Bruneau, sieur de la Chabossier, Henri Bruneau, écuyer, son of Henri Bruneau de la Chabossier; Henri Auguste Chastaignier, écuyer, seigneur de Cramahe, and Alexandre Thésée Châtaignier, écuyer, seigneur de l'Isle, were all born in La Rochelle.? Paul and Henry Bruneau, and Henry Augustus Chastaigner de Cramahe, had already, while in England, obtained letters of naturalization, March 20, 1686, and April 15, 1687. Traditionally the Bronaughs of Virginia are descendants of "Paul Bruneau, Sieur de la Chabrosier," who was born in la Rochelle and was a grandson of Jean Brunseau, counselor, and eminent citizen whose family obtained patents of nobility in the middle of the 17th century. Paul Bruneau was accompanied in his flight to America by his nephew Henri Bruneau. While in England they obtained letters of Naturalization on March 20, 1636, and changed the spelling of the name to Bronaugh. Paul and Henry Bronaugh were instrumental in building the first Presbyterian Church in South Carolina. The family settled in the Rappahannock country in the last years of the seventeenth century, where the first known ancestor of the family of interest here was born. In January 1707 Paul Bruneau sold sixty acres to Andre Rambert. The memorandum officializing this sale was drafted in French and signed by Rene Ravenel. Will of Paul Bruneau was dated November 14, 1708, but a transcript has not been found. Found at website.  Bronaugh, David (I7941)

The Head of the House of Du Montier Passes Away Yesterday, Leaving Three Generations to Mourn.

One of the oldest citizens of New Orleans, Mr. Felix Balthazar Bernard Du Montier, a patriarch in years and in family ties, the head of four generations; a gentleman of the ancient regime, honored, respected, and justly commanding the respect and veneration of a large family and of numerous friends, died yesterday at his residence, 1668 North Claiborne.
His father, Felix B. Du Montier, emigrated to the United States from Brittany, France, in the early part of the nineteenth century, and settled in West Baton Rouge. In that parish the subject of this sketch was born, July 22, 1814. He was educated at Jefferson College, St. James Parish, La., and graduated there, and, after receipt of his diploma, Mr. Du Montier was offered a position as teacher in the college. He accepted, and for several years taught the young gentlement who were sent to that famous institution of learning. Mr. Du Montier resigned his professorship to become assistant secretary of state during the administration of Governor White. Shortly after the expiration of his term of office, he met on the streets of New Orleans a congressman from Louisiana, who asked him how he was faring. "Indifferently," replied Mr. Du Montier. "I am now out of politics and without any occupation."
A few weeks subsequent to that meeting with the congressman, there came to Mr. Du Montier a letter from the department of state at Washington, and to his utter surprise he found that it was his commission from the president as superintendent of the United States mint (which was just then about completed). Not knowing how and why that public position had been thrust upon him, unsolicited and totally unlooked-for, Mr. Du Montier returned the commission to the president, with the explantation that he had no idea why the chief executive should have appointed him to that federal office. He received a reply from President Andrew Jackson stating that Congressman -- had solicited the appointment of Mr. Du Montier. President Jackson further informed the surprised Mr. Du Montier that if the position of superintendent of the mint was not acceptable there was a nice, soft berth at his disposal in the United States custom-house in New Orleans, and, on Mr. Du Montier's acceptance of the position of clerk, promtly aquiesced in the request of President Jackson, and for forty-one years Mr. Du Montier was one of the most exact and efficient clerks in the employ of the government.
In order to explain why Mr. Du Montier was appointed superintendent of the mint, it is necessary to go back to the time when he was a teacher in Jefferson College, for it was upon an incident which happened then that hinged the cause of his unsolicited appointment. He had occasion to chastise a pupil for unruly conduct, and as that young chap was the son of a very influential public man (a United States senator), it was apprehended by the faculty of the college that the parent would be angry; but, on the contrary, he highly approved of the action of Mr. Du Montier, and said that young people should be taught, in vigorous manner, if necessary, to respect their elders.
A few years elapsed, and the incident was forgotten by all, save perhaps the boy, and, as events subsequently proved, by the father of the youth. It was the old gentleman who, years after meeting Mr. Du Montier and hearing from him that he was seeking a position, go the president to send that commission as superintendent of the mint which so puzzled the recipient.
Mr. Du Montier was very active in local political affairs. He represented the Third municipality in 1846-1850, and was chairman of the finance committee of the city council. He was one of the founders of Washington public square on Elysian Fields street, and personally supervised the planting of the oak trees which this day form such a noble and agreeable avenue of magnificent shade trees in the square. It was during Mr. Du Montier's incumbency as alderman from the Third municipality that the neutral ground of Claiborne avenue was laid out and the quadruple row of trees planted, at his solicitation and suggestion. He also cause the digging of the canal in the center of Claiborne avenue. For several years past, Mr. Du Montier had retired from active public life, but he retained up to a few months of his death a remarkable vigor of body and mind. His demise was due to an attack of grippe, which had weakened his health.
The venerable gentleman leaves three sons, Emile, THeodule and Louis Du Montier; four daughters, Mrs. Delphine, wife of R.A. Bonnet; Rosalie, widow of Charles Haas; Alice, widow of Aug. A. Roy, and Cecilia, wife of Ben P. Leefe.
Twenty-seven grandchildren and twenty-two great-grandchildren represent the third and fourth generations that owed existence and respect to the beloved octogenarian and that will for many long years come revere his memory and be proud to count him among their forbears.
The Bernard and the Trepagnier families, of old and respectable Louisiana stock, were also closely related to Mr. Du Montier.
The funeral of the regretted citizen will take place to-day at 5 o'clock. The religious ceremonies will be held at the church of the Sacred Heart, corner of Annette and Claiborne.

229 A beautiful monument has been erected over her grave by the citizens of Warren county; it was unveiled, with appropriate ceremony, the 8th of August, 1866. General Lee was obliged to deny himself the mournful satisfaction of being present at the dedication. He wrote to the ladies having it in charge: ". . . I do not know how to express to you my thanks for your great kindness to her while living, and for your affectionate remembrance of her since dead. . . . I have always cherished the intention of visiting the tomb of her who never gave me aught but pleasure; but to afford me the satisfaction which I crave, it must be done with more privacy than I can hope for on the occasion you propose. . . ." Lee, Annie Carter (I8268)

240 About his regiment which fought in the American Revolution:



The first colonel of this regiment was Marquis de Crillon, 1776.

Third, Comte d'Autichamp, 1779.

The First and Second Battalions were in the West Indies in 1778-1783. A part of the regiment embarked on the squadron of Count d'Estaing and participated in the siege of Savannah. Lieutenant Blandat was killed in a sortie of September 27. On October 9, in the unsuccessful attack on the intrenchments, Captain du Barry and three subalterns were wounded.

In 1781 the regiment was united and embarked on the squadron of François Joseph Paul, Comte de Grasse to reenforce the army under Comte DE ROCHAMBEAU on the American continent. It arrived August 15 with the Gatinais and Touraine in Chesapeake Bay at the moment General Cornwallis was driven into Yorktown by Marquis de Lafayette and soon after surrounded by Washington and ROCHAMBEAU. The Marquis Saint-Simon had command of the reenforcements which debarked September 2 in James River and arrived at Williamsburg on the 4th, 4 leagues from Yorktown, where they formed a junction with Marquis de Lafayette, who commanded a corps of Americans.

On October 3 two companies of grenadiers and chasseurs d'Agénois attacked the English pickets, forcing them back upon their defenses. The trenches were opened on the evening of the 6th. On the 15th Agénois repulsed a sortie, and on the 19th Lord Cornwallis capitulated.

The regiment reembarked November 5 and returned to Martinique.

It will be interesting to know part of d'Agénois in the closing days of 1781 took passage on the vessels of Comte de Grasse and contributed to the capture of Briston Hill, February 12, 1782, where it captured the Royal Scotch, formerly Douglas Regiment, which had retired from the service of France in 1768.

In 1791 d'Agénois became the Sixteenth Infantry of France, with headquarters at Montbuson and St. Etienne.

245 According to Familles Diverses, page 164, two of the three daughters are:
Marie Françoise Louise Duval, born 28 Jan 1790, baptized 8 Feb 1790
Marie Françoise Duval La Branche, baptized in Grande-Anse on 10 May 1790.
Both are listed as married in Grande-Anse on 19 Sep 1809 to Alexis Guillaume Gameau, dit Louis Alexis (same parents, same birth and baptism vitals).
Clearly, one of them is incorrect, but which one?
It is my assumption that one of them is listed with an incorrect birth year, and that Alexis Gameau was inadvertently listed as spouse for both. 
Duval, Marie Françoise Louise (I5924)
246 According to Birth Certificate for Louis, he was 33 yrs old on 1 May 1891. That puts his birth at 1857/8 Fettet, Charles Anseman (I1687)
247 According to his tombstone at Warner Hall he was born November 28, 1610. Warner, Colonel Augustine (I8162)
248 According to Obituary notice for his brother, this is "Lucien" not "Louis." DeGruy, Louis Verloin Sr. (I350)
249 According to SARAH AMELIA BRONAUGH BENSON, author of THE HISTORY OF THE BRONAUGH FAMILY IN AMERICA, "the first BRONAUGH to be found in America was DAVID BRONAUGH who purchased land where the early BRONAUGH homes were in what is now KING GEORGE COUNTY, VIRGINIA in the year 1671. This was called in the early deed, Rappahannock County, later became known as Richmond County. In 1720, King George County was taken from Richmond [County] and the land that DAVID BRONAUGH purchased was in that part which became King George County.

The next record of DAVID BRONAUGH is found in Richmond County records where in 1692, his son WILLIAM BRONAUGH bought land that joined DAVID BRONAUGH's plantation. The proof that DAVID is the father of the said WILLIAM is found in the following lease: "King George County, November 1721; Lease for 100 acres in King George County, part of which came to WILLIAM BRONAUGH by death of his father DAVID BRONAUGH and by the said WILLIAM, deeded GEORGE BRONAUGH of St. Marges {sic} [either Margaret's or Mary's] Parish in Essex County, Dec 4, 1699."

PLEASE NOTE: The parents of this DAVID BRONAUGH are NOT known or proven.

The author then goes on to say" The first BRONAUGH family to Virginia was probably from England or the Channel Islands as many French Huguenots settled there during the persecution in France."

BRUCE in his VIRGINIA IN THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY stated: " Long before the persecution of the French Huguenots had become so pitiless, a number of them settled in Virginia and probably came from England and were English in spirit...many settled in Northumberland County in 1669. At the same time there was a close trade relationship between the Northern Neck of Virginia and the Channel Islands which were largely inhabited by people of French origin. Northumberland County was close to the area where DAVID BRONAUGH settled..."

One additional interesting piece of information comes from the "MANAKIN HUGUENOT Society Records which states:

"Traditionally the BRONAUGH's of Virginia are descendants of 'PAUL BRUNEAU, Sieur de Chabrosier' who was born in La Rochelle, France in about 1624 and was a grandson of Jean Bruneau, counselor and eminent citizen whose family obtained patents of nobility in the middle of the 17th Century... PAUL BRUNEAU was accompanied in his flight to America by his nephew HENRI BRUNEAU. While in England they obtained letters of Naturalization on March 20, 1636 and changed the spelling of the name to BRONAUGH. PAUL and HENRI BRONAUGH were instrumental in building the first Presbyterian Church in South Carolina."

"Lord ARNAUD BRUNEAU, Lord of Hure, came to South Carolina with his son PAUL BRUNEAU [who changed his name to BRONAUGH] and grandson HENRI...who are clearly identified in Wills. DAVID BRONAUGH [is thought to be] the son of PAUL [BRUNEAU] BRONAUGH [BRONAUGH name change in England when he became a naturalized English citizen before coming to South Carolina and then to the MANAKIN COLONY in Rappahannock County, Virginia ..."

It was about the year 1635 that his first Augustine Warner patented the estate since known as Warner Hall, and this year might also be assumed as the approximate date of his marriage. Probably from the date of the marriage he resided in that part of York County which became Gloucester County in 1651, but of this we cannot be entirely sure. It is entirely probable that, though elected a Burgess from York in 1652, Augustine Warner was then residing at the Warner Hall estate in Gloucester; for, as pointed out elsewhere, Burgesses were not always (though they were generally) residents of the Counties which they represented. Warner, Colonel Augustine (I8162)

296 An article regarding the New Orleans Census of 1724:
SCHAF (Chauffe). Then there was the family of Schaf, of Weissenburg. Jacob Schaf and his wife Marianne sailed with five children for Louisiana on the pest ship "La Garonne" on the 24th of January, 1721. From church records it appears that the wife of Ambros Heidel (Haydel), Anna Margarethe, was a daughter of Schaf. Ambros Heidel had also a brother-in- law with him. Another daughter of Schaf married one Claireaux, and later, as her second husband, Franz Anton Steiger, from the diocese of Constance, Baden, while Anton Schaf, the eldest son, became the son-in-law of Andreas Schenck in 1737 ( see census of 1724, No. 35). Yet no census mentions the Schaf family.
