About: BIOLOGICAL-Genealogical primarily indicates biological relationship; BLOOD-BASED KINSHIP, ancestral heredity. Such relationships exist between peoples mention. Establishing the presence is in part found upon showing actual physical/hereditary connections (THE FAMILY TREE) between ancient ancestors and their descendants. Their are two type of genealogies found in ancient literature. The LINEAR genealogy gives a single (1) line of descent from an ancestor. The SEGMENTED genealogy, of which Genesis 10 is one, describes more than one (1) line of descent from an ancestor. It was used for different purposes including POLITICAL, LEGAL, DOMESTIC AND RELIGIOUS purposes. It emphasized group interrelations over against individual relationships.

HarrisonThomas LaTour Hello, My name is Harrison Thomas LaTour, and I am a direct Descendant of a Black Louisiana Confederate Soldier. My second 2nd Great-Grandmother was the daughter of a Lefroy Pierre-Auguste. If you are a descendant of a Black Confederate Soldier, feel free to post a reply, the soldier does not have to be from Louisiana.

A few Louisiana "free blacks", however, served in white Confederated units and received Confederate pensions. Among them were Charles Lutz, Jean Baptiste Pierre-Auguste, and Leufroy Pierre-Auguste of St. Landry Parish, who fought with the Confederate army troops at Shiloh, Fredericksburg, and Vicksburg. Confederate Research Sources =========================================================== Civil War Service: Auguste, Lufoy Pierre. Pvt. Co. K. 16th La. Infty. En. Sept. 29th, 1861, Camp Moore, La. Present on All Rolls from Sept., 1861, to Oct., 1862. Roll for Nov. and Dec., 1862, ?Colored Man. Dropped from Roll by Order of Col. Gober, Dec. 8th, 1862.? CIVIL WAR HISTORY, Volume XXXII, No. 3, September, 1986 FREE MEN OF COLOR IN GREY Arthur W. Bergeron, Jr. Lufroy Pierre-Auguste was born in St. Landry Parish about 1830. He was the son of Pierre Pierre-Auguste and Gabriele Tessier, free persons of color. The 1860 census shows that Lufroy worked as a stockherder for Francois P. Pitre, Jr. Lufroy left his farm and joined Captain Daniel Gober's Big Cane rifles, which became Company K, Sixteenth Louisiana Infantry Regiment. The first two muster rolls of this company list him as a free man of color-the only such instance found in researching these men. None of the men discussed in this manuscript, except for Lutz and possibly Gabriel Grappe, pretended they were white. The other men in their units undoubtedly knew them as free blacks. The Sixteenth Louisiana fought in the battles of Shiloh, Farmington, and Perrysville. On December 8, 1862, while in camp at Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Lufroy received a discharge from Confederate service. The reason given for his dicharge was that he was a "colored man." Apparently superior authorities had finally discovered that he was black and ordered his separation from the army. Lufroy went home, but he did become involved in one other incident before war's end. On May 13, 1865, he surprised two Jayhawkers near Opelousas. These men made up part of a band of outlaws, deserters, and draft dodgers who resisted Confederate authority. The two Jayhawkers fired at him, and he returned fire, hitting one of the men. Lufroy married in 1869, but no further information on his life after the war has come to light so far. =========================================================== Francois P.
