'Frail, Wounded Mother Asks Only of 'Baby's' Suffering.'
"Frail, Wounded Mother Asks Only of 'Baby's' Suffering."
This tells the first part of the story of Agatha Pitard Turnbull's death; she attempted to shoot her daughter Blanche, and herself, rather than let her daughter be taken back to an insane asylum. This is from the Times-Picayune, 18 July, 1919, p5.

'Hugh McLellan's Family Line'
"Hugh McLellan's Family Line"
This is S235; it cites no sources, but describes the line from Bryce through Capt. Joseph McLellan to Maj. Hugh McLellan. Because there are no sources I regard it as less authoritative, but I believe that the author, William Barry, is associated with the McLellan-Sweat house.

'The Burning of the Gipsy,' <em>Times Picayune</em>, 8 Dec. 1854
"The Burning of the Gipsy," Times Picayune, 8 Dec. 1854
This describes the loss of the steamer along with "Dr. Hacker, of Plaquemines, with his nephew, a lad of some thirteen years of age, and his daughter." The nephew, not named in any articles about the incident, was very likely Octave Florian Pitard, who would have been 13 at the time.

The writing here is confusing, since the "0" is made with two strokes, and the writer uses an elaborate capital "L." "Elcini" should be Alcine.

Baptismal certificate for Isabel "Buison"
I have transcribed and translated this in the "Degrange/McMillan Correspondence" (kept on the Louisiana Histories page).

Why the name is different here is a mystery.

Heirs to Creole Millions Will Sue Spanish Crown
Heirs to Creole Millions Will Sue Spanish Crown
Article from the Times Picayune, 15 Mar. 1925, p13. The woman in the first paragraph who died in 1866 is Emilie Lacoste, who married as her second husband Pierre Hacker (d. 1835).

According to this article, she died in the North Rampart St. home of Mrs. George Washington Dunbar: this is her daughter Charlotte Zulmee Hacker (d. 1910).
