402 Bertrand DE LUPÉ, seigneur de Gensac, épousa, vers l'an 1432, Pélegrine DE GOTH, fille de Bertrand de Goth, seigneur de Rouillac, de Pierrecave, etc., et de Jeanne de Lautrec, sa première femme. Elle eut en dot 400 moutons d'or, que son père lui avait légués, et qu'Odet de Goth, son frère, s'obligea de lui payer, par acte passé à Condom le 19 décembre 1437, où souscrivirent commegarants Gaillard de Goth, seigneur de Manleyse, et Bertrand de Roquelaure, seigneur de Saint-Aubin. Bertrand de Lupé donna quittance à Odet, son beau-frère, pour partie de cette dot, le 26 octobre 1450. (Hist. des Grands-Officiers de la Couronne, t. II, p. 177.) Family (F1740)
 
403 Bien que né en Louisiane, Joseph Xavier DELFAU de PONTALBA est envoyé très jeune en France pour y recevoir l'éducation qui convient. Il entre dans l'Armée à Sèvres, la Louisiane est déjà devenue colonie espagnole. Il aura vingt-huit ans lorsqu'il retrouvera La Nouvelle-Orléans, dont l'histoire ne sera plus liée à la sienne. Il est nommé au régiment de Montauban, puis quatre années plus tard à celui de la Guadeloupe où il obtient successivement les grades de lieutenant, puis d'assistant adjudant du régiment. Il prend part à la campagne de Ste-Lucie aux Grenades et se distingue particulièrement au siège de Savannah.

Deux années plus tard it devient une figure heroique de l'armée à cause d'un duel ! Le jeune lieutenant stationne avec son unité à la Martinique Iorsqu'il prend pour un affront quelque chose qui, en vérité, ne concerne qu'un de ses supérieurs. Quoi qu'il en soit, it est agressé dans la rue par l'ennemi qu'il vient de se faire et reçoit trois coups d'épée avant même qu'il puisse se défendre. II est transporté à l'hôpital dans un bain de sang et y reste huit mois. Des qu'il est capable de marcher avec une canne, il en sort determine a retrouver son adversaire, ce qui est rapidement fait. Il l'attaque, mais est à nouveau bien blessé d'un coup porte au côté, tandis que l'adversaire s'enfuit.

Sur l'avis de ses amis et pour éviter d'être poursuivi, PONTALBA trouve refuge à la Martinique et y reste jusqu'à ce que sa blessure guérisse. Il rejoint alors son régiment toujours aussi décidé à en découdre avec son adversaire. Après l'avoir cherché pendant six semaines, it apprend que l'homme est parti en France. PONTALBA paraît dispose à laisser l'affaire là en espérant que la chance lui mettrait peut-être l'homme en face un jour. C'est alors qu'une lettre de son supérieurs, écrite au nom de tous les officiers du régiment, l'assure qu'il y va de son honneur de poursuivre cet homme jusqu'en France.

PONTALBA obtient donc un congé, va en France et trouve l'homme auquel il demande réparation. Le duel est organisé, et cette fois l'adversaire est blessé à la main droite, et refusant de continuer avec la main gauche, promet devant les témoins, qu'iI rencontrera à nouveau PONTALBA au même endroit sous quinzaine. Celui-ci et ses témoins I'attendent ponctuellement au même lieu, le jour dit, en vain, l'homme avait quitté le pays. Les témoins dressent procès-verbal de la situation et le tout est soumis au comte de GENLIS, marquis de SILLERY, capitaine des gardes du duc de CHARTRES, suprême autorité en matière d' honneur. Celui-ci déclare que PONTALBA a agi en homme d'honneur, mérite l'estime et l'amitié de ses pairs, qu'il doit rejoindre son regiment à la Guadeloupe et reprendre son service.

Il est capitaine lorsqu'il quitte armée en 1782, et se retire en Louisiane. Le gouvemement espagnol lui confie alors une compagnie dans le régiment de Louisiane stationné à La Nouvelle-Orléans. Plus tard, it est nommé lieutenant-colonel, puis colonel et commandant de la milice des deux côtes, celle des Allemands et celle qui s'etend jusqu'à Iberville. C'est à cette époque-là qu'il épouse Jeanne Françoise Louise LE BRETTON des CHARMEAUX.

En 1791, leur naît un fils, Joseph Xavier Célestin DELFAU de PONTALBA, surnommé « Tintin ». Jeanne Françoise Louise LE BRETTON des CHARMEAUX a toujours été soutenue par sa tante Céleste Eléonor MACARTY, épouse du gouverneur MIRO. Lorsque celui-ci est rappelé en Espagne en 1792, it laisse toutes ses affaires privées aux PONTALBA comme il l'aurait fait avec ses enfants. En 1795, il meurt, et sa femme tombe dans un état dépressif profond si inquiétant que l'on prie sa nièce de se rendre près d'elle en Espagne.

Jeanne Louise LE BRETTON des CHARMEAUX s'y rend immédiatement, emmenant avec elle leur fils de cinq ans. La séparation est douloureuse, tant pour Joseph Xavier DELFAU de PONTALBA qui reste seul en Louisiane, que pour elle qui voyage seule et pour la première fois de sa vie. Les archives ont conservé les lettres que le mari écrit pratiquement chaque jour à son épouse. Celles-ci sont extrêmement intéressantes pour la description qu'elles contiennent du quotidien de la vie dans cette lointaine province, des hommes, des événements, etc.

Il démissionne finalement de l'armée espagnole et quitte La Nouvelle-Orléans en 1797. La famille est de nouveau réunie à Paris. Là, Joseph Xavier DELFAU de PONTALBA écrit un mémoire complet sur la Louisiane pour le soumettre à Napoléon BONAPARTE, Premier Consul. Il Iui est présenté le 15 septembre 1800, et quinze jours plus tard, le 1er octobre, celui-ci signe le traité de San Idelfonzo par lequel l'Espagne rétrocède la Louisiane à la France. On sait que Napoléon BONAPARTE, Premier consul, sachant la guerre avec l'Angleterre inévitable, va vendre la Louisiane aux jeunes Etats-Unis d'Amérique pour la somme dérisoire de quinze millions de dollars le 30 avril 1803.

Le 3 octobre 1802, Joseph Xavier DELFAU de PONTALBA présente au premier Consul une demande, indiquant que lui, principal propriétaire en Louisiane où il était né, a renoncé à son rang dans l' armée espagnole, et que le transfert de sa fortune en France montre son désir de redevenir citoyen français et prouve sa devotion à la France. Il demande que ses états de services dans les rangs des armées française et espagnole soient pris en considération et qu'il lui soit donné le grade d'adjudant general sans solde dans l' armée française. Il précise né souhaiter que l'honneur de servir la République Française. Il est exaucé.

En 1807, it achète le magnifique château de Mont-l'Evêque (Oise). C'est là que son fils passe son adolescence.

Il est fait baron d'Empire avec institution de majorat par lettre patente du 8 juillet 1810 et chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur. Le baron Joseph Xavier DELFAU de PONTALBA a offert au maréchal NEY en 1815 de se retirer en Louisiane avec son aide. On sait que la proposition ne sera pas acceptée et que le glorieux maréchal est fusillé quelques mois plus tard. On prête aussi au baron d'avoir voulu sauver l'empereur Napoléon 1er de son exil à Sainte-Hélène et de lui avoir propose de le conduire à La Nouvelle-Orléans où une maison l'attendait.

Il se suicide en octobre 1834 a Mont-l'Evêque dans les conditions dramatiques relatées ci-dessous dans l'article consacré a son fils. Ils avaient eu un fils et une fille


----------
Although born in Louisiana, Joseph Xavier Delfau Pontalba very young is sent to France to receive appropriate education. He joined the Army in Sevres, Louisiana has already become a Spanish colony. There will be twenty-eight years old when find New Orleans, whose history will no longer be linked to his. He was appointed to the regiment of Montauban, then four years later than in Guadeloupe where he won successively the ranks of lieutenant and assistant adjutant of the regiment. He took part in the campaign of St. Lucia to Pomegranates and is particularly distinguished at the siege of Savannah.

Two years later it becomes a heroic figure from the army due to a duel! The young lieutenant stationed with his unit in Martinique Iorsqu'il is an affront to something which, in truth, does one of his superiors. Anyway, it was attacked in the street by the enemy he has just been given three and a sword before he could defend himself. He was taken to hospital in a bloodbath and stayed eight months. For he is able to walk with a cane, he determined to find out his opponent, which is quickly done. He attacks, but is well again wounded by a side door, while the enemy fled.

On the advice of his friends and to avoid being sued, Pontalba finds refuge in Martinique and remains there until the wound heals. He then joined his regiment still decided to do battle with his opponent. After having tried for six weeks, it learns that the man left in France. Pontalba seems to have let the case here, hoping that luck would it perhaps the man in the face one day. Then a letter from his superiors, written on behalf of all officers of the regiment, assures that there will continue to honor this man to France.

Pontalba therefore obtained leave, goes to France and found the man he seeks redress. The duel is organized, and this time the enemy is wounded in his right hand, and refusing to continue with his left hand, promises before witnesses, that He will meet again Pontalba in the same place within a fortnight. He and his witnesses I'attendent punctually at the same place on that day, in vain, the man had left the country. Witnesses prepare minutes of the situation and everything is subject to Count GENLIS, Marquis de Sillery, captain of the guards of the Duc de Chartres, the supreme authority in matters of honor. He declares that Pontalba acted like a man of honor, merit the esteem and friendship of his peers, he must join his regiment in Guadeloupe and resume service.

He was captain when he left army in 1782 and retired in Louisiana. The Spanish Government then assigned a company in Louisiana regiment stationed in New Orleans. Later, he was appointed lieutenant-colonel, and colonel and commander of the militia on both sides, des Allemands and one that extends to Iberville. It was at that time he married Jeanne Françoise Louise of LE BRETTON Charmeau.

In 1791, a son born to them, Joseph Xavier Celestin de Pontalba Delfau, nicknamed "Tintin". Jeanne Françoise Louise LE BRETTON des CHARMEAUX has always been supported by her aunt Céleste Eléonor MACARTY, wife of Governor MIRO. When he is recalled to Spain in 1792, he leaves all his private affairs to Pontalba as he would have done with his children. In 1795, he died, and his wife falls into a deep depression so disturbing that she asks her niece to go with her to Spain.

Jeanne Louise LE BRETTON des CHARMEAUX went there immediately, taking with her their five year old son. The separation is painful for both of Joseph Xavier DELFAU de PONTALBA remains only in Louisiana, as she is traveling alone and for the first time in his life. The archives have kept the letters her husband wrote almost daily to his wife. These are extremely interesting for the description they contain daily life in this remote province, people, events, etc....

He finally resigned from the Spanish army, and left New Orleans in 1797. The family is reunited in Paris. There, Joseph Xavier DELFAU de PONTALBA wrote a full brief on Louisiana to give to Napoleon Bonaparte, First Consul. He presented it on September 15, 1800, and a fortnight later, on 1 October, he signed the Treaty of San Idelfonzo by which Spain surrenders Louisiana to France. We know that Napoleon Bonaparte, First Consul, knowing the inevitable war with England, will sell Louisiana to the young United States of America for the paltry sum of five million dollars April 30, 1803.

On October 3, 1802, Joseph Xavier Delfau Pontalba presented an application to the First Consul, stating that he, the principal owner in Louisiana, where he was born, gave up his rank in the Spanish army, and that his change of fortune in France shows its desire to regain a French citizen and proves his devotion to France. He asked that his service in the ranks of the French and Spanish armies are taken into account and that he be given the rank of adjutant general without pay in the French army. He specifies only wanting the honor of serving the French Republic. It is granted.

In 1807 he bought the chateau of Mont-Eveque (Oise). This is where his son spent his teenage years.

He was made Baron of the Empire with institution of primogeniture by letters patent dated 8 July 1810 and Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur. Baron Joseph Xavier DELFAU de PONTALBA provided to Ney in 1815 to retire to Louisiana with his help. We know that the proposal was not to be accepted and the glorious marshal was shot a few months later. He also tried to save the Emperor Napoleon's first exile on St. Helena and to have moved to take him to New Orleans as a home for him.

He committed suicide in October 1834 in Mont-l'Evêque.

************************************************

Breaux, Samuel Locke, leading rice factor, first vice-president Pan-American Life Insurance Co., member board of directors New Orleans board of trade, prominent and leading citizen of New Orleans, is a son of Col. Gustave Aurelien and Emelie (Locke) Breaux, and was born at New Orleans, La., Feb. 13, 1860. Gustave A. Breaux, the father, was born in Lafayette parish, La., December 28, 1828. His early education was obtained at the Jesuit college in St. Charles parish. When 16 years of age he went, by sailing vessel, mainly, to Northfield, Vermont, and there entered Norwich university, a military school. After having completed the course of study at this institution he matriculated in the law department of Harvard university, Cambridge, Mass., from which in due time he graduated with his legal degree. He returned to Louisiana in 1853 and began the practice of law in the city of New Orleans. In 1856 Mr. Breaux was married to Miss Emilie Locke, a daughter of Samuel Locke. At the beginning of the Civil war he raised a battalion and was made colonel of the 13th Louisiana regiment, subsequently serving throughout the
whole period of the war. About the year 1867 he reentered the profession of law with Mr. Charles E. Fenner as a partner, and continued in the profession until 1898, when he retired from practice and subsequently gave his attention
to the direction of his plantation and allied interests. During all of the period of his residence in the city of New Orleans he took a very active and prominent part in the commercial, industrial and political affairs of the
municipality. He served as a member of the constitutional convention of 1879, and twice represented the 5th senatorial district in the Louisiana state senate. He was active in the promotion of the New Orleans Cotton centennial
and served as a member of the board of administrators of that enterpise and celebration. During all the time of his residence in the city he was owner of a plantation in Lafayette parish, and as his hearing became defective, he determined to remove to the country and devote his talents to agricultural development, being especially interested in sugar cane culture. In the subsequent development of his plantation interests, he became engaged in the manufacture of sugar, and the Lafayette Sugar refinery stands today as a monument to his zeal and energy ni this direction. Col. Breaux 's death occurred Feb. 24, 1910, at his home in Lafayette parish, where he was born, and where he passed the last years of an active and useful life, honored and loved by all who knew him. In May, 1911, a portrait of Col. Breaux was presented to the Louisiana Sugar Planters' association, to be hung with the
portraits of other ploneers who toiled for the upbuilding of the sugar industry in Louisiana. Samuel Locke Breaux has from childhood lived in New Orleans. His early education was obtained at St. Philip public school. Later he attended St. Stanislaus college, conducted by the Jesuit Brothers at Bay St. Louis, Miss., and still later the Virginia Military institute, at Lexington, Va. Following his graduation from the latter institution in the year 1875, he entered the service of Payne, Kennedy & Co., New Orleans cotton factors, and was successively employed by several firms handling cotton and rice until the year 1896, when he entered business on his own account, handling both staples, cotton and rice. Since 1904, he has confined his business exclusively to rice, and a large experience, combined with a naturally keen and alert mind, and unfailing energy, has brought Mr. Breaux
into general recognition as a leading authority in all matters pertaining to rice. He occupies the position of the leading rice factor in the city of New Orleans, where fully one-third of all the rice grown in the United States is handled. March 1, 1914, Mr. Breaux formed a connection with the firm of Gibert & Clay, and thus returned to cotton business in which he was educated, and in this connection still continues the rice business as a department of the above firm. On several occasions he has appeared before the Louisiana
railroad commission in the interest of more equitable treatment of the rice interests of the region tributary to New Orleans, and has been uniformly successful in his efforts in this direction. Pending consideration both of
the McKinley and the Payne-Aldrich tariffs, he went to Washington as chairman, and as champion, of the rice interests, and on each occasion acted as spokesman of those interests at the hearings before the ways and means committee of Congress. During the years 1898 and 1900 he filled the position of president of the New Orleans board of trade, and is at this time an active member and member of the board of directors of that body; also, chairman of the rice committee, the rice freights committee and the freight and transportation committee of the board of trade. In Jan., 1911, he went to Washington as a member of the New Orleans committee to work in the interest of securing the Pan-American Exposition, and on that occasion acted as one of the
speakers in presenting the claims of New Orleans before the committee on industrial arts and expositions. Mr. Breaux is first vice-president of the recently organized Pan-American Life Insurance Co. of New Orleans, is a member of the Young Men's Gymnastic club and is affiliated with various other organizations and associations--altogether a man of many affairs and complex interests, and above all things vigilant and fully alive to the interests of the people among whom he lives. April 6, 1885, Mr. Breaux was married to Miss Nina Williams, and to their union 1 son Samuel Locke Breaux, Jr., was born,
April 21, 1886. Mrs. Breaux died Nov. 20, 1892, and April 19, 1894, Mr. Breaux was married to Miss Nina Alice Rogers.

Year of birth is given from son Ernest's repatriation papers. Census records show that the year of birth is probably 1825 or 1826. Death records state that he is 72 years old; which makes the 1825 or 1826 year more likely.

Son Ernest's papers also state that Charles was born in New Orleans. His obituary gives the place of birth as Matanzas, Cuba. Census records are not consistant giving both Cuba and Louisiana in varying years.

Attended St Louis University in Missouri.

Bookkeeper and accountant. Eventually formed own business with a partner dealing in real estate, land transfers and mortgages.

Married twice.

First wife was Augustine Mathilde Ramos and had six children.

Second wife was Josephine Adele de Liveaudais and had six children.
