Personal History of Felix Bernard du Montier and Margaret Victoire Bourg

History of how Felix Gilles Louis Bernard du Montier and Margaret Victoire Bourg married and came to Louisiana

During the Bourbon regime in France, Felix entered the French Navy as an officer and rose to the grade of Captain. Although a man of aristocratic training and tradition, he was by nature a republican in tendencies. His family were opposed to his proposed marriage with Margaret Victoire Burke, who was of the bourgeoisie and descendant of an Irish family, which had been established in France for three generations. He resigned from the Navy, being then at Madras, in the Bay of Bengal, India. He repaired to the Nantes France where he married Miss Burke. For this alliance, he was disowned and disinherited by his father. With his young wife, he came to Louisiana and settled at Bayou des Ecores, East Feliciana Parish, near Baton Rouge. Owned cotton and later, sugar plantations. Was a member of the Louisiana Legislature. He had four sons and two daughters: Louis, Onesiphore, Agricole, Felix, Celeste, and Emelie. He died (during the presidency of John Tyler) in the Parish of West Baton Rouge, where he had moved in 1788.
