Article from Liberty county, Texas
Probably the first woman to live in the Norman house was Mrs. Aurelia P. LaCour. Mrs. LaCour was born in Louisiana around 1818. She married Gilbert LaCour and had at least four children. Between 1848 and 1850 the LaCours joined the Creole migration from Louisiana to southeast Texas. In 1883 Aurelia purchased the property where the Norman House stood, and they probably built the Norman House. In 1887 they sold the property to B.F. Cameron. Later, in 1888 and 1889, Mrs. LaCour helped her husband operate the poor farm.
In 1890 Oscar LaCour, the LaCours' son, was seriously hurt when he was shot in the mouth during an argument over politics. T.J. Chambers, editor of The Liberty Vindicator, then expressed his sympathy and admiration for Mrs. LaCour: "No better woman lives than Madam LaCour, the venerable mother, who having already had to pass through her share of trouble in life, is now called upon to nurse and watch in her son’s illness. . . But we are glad to say the old lady bears up well, and has the sympathy of our whole people."
