Baptized on 6 Dec 1816 at St. Martin of Tours, St. Martinville, St. Martin Parish, Louisiana, USA.

Appears to have been living in New Orleans in the 1870s, working as a butcher. Involved in a case that went to the Louisiana Supreme Court wherein the city had apparently granted a monopoly on slaughtering of cattle to City Livestock Co., which Francois Frilot and John Larrieux argued only applied to the east bank of the MIssissippi, and that they should be free to slaughter cattle on the west bank, in Algiers.

The courts disagreed and filed an injunction against Larrieux and Frilot, but they persisted. They were found in contempt and at least briefly jailed, and fined in 1875. It's not clear what the ultimate outcome of the case was.
