78. GEORGE RAYMOND EMILE6 LOCOUL (ELISABETH5 DUPARC, ANNA4 PRUDHOMME, JEAN BAPTISTE3, JEAN PHILIPPE PIERRE2, PIERRE1) was born 1822 in Duparc-Locoul Plantation, St. James Parish, LA, and died 1879 in New Orleans, LA. He married LOUISE DESIREE ARCHINARD, daughter of FRANCOIS ARCHINARD and MARIANNE METOYER. She was born September 20, 1836 in Metoyer Plantation, Bermuda, LA.462, and died 1911 in St. Louis, Missouri.

Notes for L
OUISE DESIREE ARCHINARD:
Desiree Archinard Locoul's life is documented by her daughter Laura Locoul Gore in "Memories of the Old Plantation Home," published in 2000.

Desiree was born at the Metoyer Plantation in Bermuda, and lived at her father's cotton plantation, Archinard Plantation, in Rapides Parish near Alexandria. In 1845, when Desiree was eight years old, her father died in a cholera epidemic. Desiree's mother was forced to return home to live with her own mother, Aurore Lambre Metoyer, and her large family of brothers and sisters. Excerpts from pp. 24-28:

"My mother, Desiree, was sent to the Sacred Heart Convent in Natchitoches where she remained until her graduation. She was as great a favorite there as she was to become later, with all who knew her. Mother was pretty and bright with the most lovable disposition. She sang and played delightfully and had perfect command of both English and French. Mother was the acknowledged belle of 'la Cote Joyeuse,' as the settlement of Bermuda in Natchitoches Parish was called then, owing to the great number of fun-loving people, all related, who made the place so gay.

* * * "Ten years later [about 1855, at age 38], Grandmother Cephalide married her brother-in-law, Phanor Prudhomme, whose children Cephalide had looked after and cared for after her sister's (Lise Metoyer's) death. This marriage made my mother [Desiree Archinard] very happy, as her Uncle Phanor, who was now her step-father, had loved her and had been a second father to her in her early youth. Grandmother Cephalide and mother lived on Oakland, the Prudhomme Plantation, not far from Bermuda.

"The oldest daughter of Phanor, Adeline, was my mother's bosom friend and, in 1854, when they were both 18 years of age, "Grandfather" Phanor took them both to New York and through the Eastern U. S. on a summer vacation. It was a habit in those days then, when one family planned to go anywhere, others immediately decided to accompany them. So, quite a merry party of young people went on the same trip. I believe that Mother wanted Father to come along with them on this trip, chaperoned.

"During this trip, the Prudhomme party remained a few days in New Orleans. Grandmother , Elisabeth Duparc Locoul, who was Phanor's cousin, entertained them at dinner at her house on Toulouse Street. My father, 32 years old, was returning from the plantation and his boat was late in landing, so much so that when he arrived at the house, the dinner was nearly over.

"Upon entering the dining room, Father made his salutations and spoke to the elder ladies first. Then, hastily crossing to Mother's side, he said to her, 'I need no introduction to you. I know you are the daughter of my dear friend, Cephalide.' Mother was much confused and embarrassed at being singled out, because she knew there would be no end of teasing and comment from those of her party who had witnessed this meeting.

[The book documents more details of the courtship, and the wedding:]

"Mother was married at her Grandmother Metoyer's plantation home in Bermuda, with only the family attending. She wore a lovely 'Mousseline de Soie' trimmed with Valenciennes lace which she specially requested to be simple. Grandmother Locoul would have sent the most handsome silks and laces or satin, had she been allowed to do so.

  Notes for NOEMIE LOCOUL:
From "Memories of the Old Plantation Home," by Laura Locoul Gore, pp. 157-159:

"Ever since the wedding [of Mimi's sister Laura] in 1892, George, Laura's brother, had lived with Desiree and Mimi at their Bourbon Street house. Throughout his twenties, George was able to secure temporary employment, but never held a job that brought in enough to pay the living expenses for the three of them. Often, he was hired as a clerk or runner or office boy, only to change jobs within a year or so. He never married and displayed little or no interest in the opposite sex. Likewise, Mimi never held a job nor ventured far from her mother. She was not known to entertain suitors nor have her own coterie of friends. Living arrangements at 35 Bourbon Street remained relatively unchanged for the 13 years after Laura left.

"By 1900, the French Quarter had become run down, with sorely depressed property values and the area was no longer a desirable neighborhood in which to live. In 1905, Laura pleaded with Desiree to leave New Orleans and to come and live near her in St. Louis. The offer was accepted, the townhouse sold and the last of the Locouls, Desiree, Mimi and George, left Louisiana for their new home on Maryland Avenue in St. Louis.

"Once settled in, the old pangs of separation eased for everyone. Stephen Decatur found George a position, menial though it was, at the Missouri Glass Company. Desiree happily became a doting grandmother and welcomed her baby-sitting duties for Lollie, Daise and Charlie, Jr. She was especially pleased to be able to assist her grand-daughters in their Catholic schooling. * * *

"In 1911, Laura's beloved mother, Desiree, died and was buried in Calvary, the Catholic cemetery, in St. Louis. Laura's grief was soon to be compounded by Mimi's increasingly erratic behavior. Always introverted as a young girl, the sensitive Mimi fell into a long depression following her mother's death. Her mental health was questioned and she suffered frequent and more severe bouts of hysteria. In 1912, Mimi was married, aged 44, to her cousin, Neuville Prudhomme.

"Mimi was given her third of the Locoul inheritance including her share of the family furniture and she left St. Louis with Neuville to live at the family's Magnolia Plantation near Natchitoches, where he was the overseer. * * *

"[In approximately 1936] sad news arrived from Natchitoches. Mimi had to be forcibly taken in the middle of the night from the Magnolia Plantation and institutionalized. She was placed in the insane asylum at Jackson, Louisiana and remained there until her death in 1944."
