The Estate of Louis Onesime Pitre:
On 21st January 1875 Duroudeau Francois Dupre petitioned the court that Onezime L. Pitre of St. Landry has left a small estate of movable property, an inventory needs to be taken, and a tutor needs to be appointed for the minor children of his marriage to Emerite Dupre, also deceased. He recommends a family meeting composed of Francois Dupre Sr., Auguste Bertrand, Onile Lejeune, Louis O. Pitre, Henri Durio, and Octave Dupre, nearest relatives. On 7 August 1875 a family meeting was set composed of the minor children Lucius and Theogene Octave Pitre and Francois Dupre Sr., Francois Dupre Jr., Emile H. Dupre, Francois L. Pitre, Napoleon Pitre, and Onile Lejeune to discuss the estate. On 11th August 1875 Duroudeau F. Dupre requested that the proceedings of the recent family meeting be made a judgment of the court, decreeing that the verbal transfer of the property from Onezime L. Pitre to his surviving widow Felicia Andrepont be recognized, once the balance of the property belonging to the estate is sold, as that property belonged to Felicia Andrepont before her marriage to the deceased. Inventory taken 3rd July 1875: 3 mares, 3 colts, 2 horses ($170), 6 cattle ($60), branding iron ($5), silver watch ($15), armoire ($15), bed ($25), saddle/bridle ($7.50), pistol ($10), 25 sheep ($37.50): total $345. After initial disagreement, Duroudeau Francois Dupre was appointed tutor to Lucius O. Pitre and Homere Durio tutor to Theogene Pitre with Oneil Lejeune as under-tutor (Auguste Bertrand later took over as under-tutor to Lucius & Theogene). The estate items sold for $398.35.
