Biography

ERASTE DURIO, OPELOUSAS.--Mr. Durio, a planter residing four miles west of Opelousas, was born March 1, 1851. He is the youngest of a family of twelve children born to Simon and Malene Durio, both natives of Louisiana.
When Eraste Durio was eight years of age his mother died, and he was reared until he had attained the age of thirteen by his brother-in-law, Pierre Mauellire. At this age he began work for himself as a farm hand, which he followed for about two years. He attended the common schools and received a good business education. At the age of about eighteen he became an employe in his brother's store, where he remained for three years, when he was married to Miss Emma Pitre, daughter of Francois and Eliza (Joubert) Pitre. Since his marriage Mr. Durio has given his attention exclusively to planting. He has a good plantation, upon which he raises grain and stock. When it is recollected that Mr. Durio began life at the age of thirteen, without even a good suit of clothes, his success in life will be more appreciated. He is certainly a self-made man. Mrs. Durio died in March, 1876; and in 1885 our subject married Delia Lauerne. Two children, Octave and Lyda, were the result of his first marriage. To the last union have been born three children: May, Fey and Minnie. [1]
