Hi there Mr jimmy Wall!
I keep finding your name all over the place. Our paths are probably about to cross again in Livingston Parish ancestry. I've recently begun some work on Sheldon there and see your name when I come across either Brown or Achord, I cant remember which.
Anyway...the Victorin Pourciau you asked about was born ABOUT 1838 to Paulin Onile and Julie David Pourciau. He married Mathilde Major whom I'm told was the daughter of Pierre Vallery and Arthemise Pourciau Major.
Victorin was the brother of Emile Pourciau, who married Desiree Saizan and bore my mom's paternal grandmother; Hermina Pourciau born 1871.
I copied this from somewhere on the internet but dont remember where:
Victorin was a Pvt. Co. K, 2nd La. Cav. Enlisted sept. 1862, New Roads, La. Federal rolls of Prisoners of War, captured at Natchitoches March21, 1864. Sent to new Orleans and then to St. Louis USA General Hospital. Exchanged at Red River Landing on the 22nd of July 1864.
From these records it is plain to see that all seven sons of Paulin Onile Pourciau were active in their support of the CSA.
