Booth's books says he enlisted 2 Dec 1861 at Camp Chalmette and was present on all rolls to June 1862. He was also on the roll for September and October 1862, discharged at Moccasin, TN, and paid off. His stepson Private William B. Albritton served with him in the Walker Roughs, which I believe was a nickname for what became this company. Other records say he was discharged 'Being overage' at 47 years of age. His sons, George and Thomas also fought for the Confederates.

This group assembled on 1 September 1861 at the Castor Church (now the site of the Old Castor Cemetery), and rode to Camp Moore, Louisiana. He was in the Battle of Shiloh on 6 April 1862, where his best friend, John M. Havard was killed. Robert was devastated at his friend’s death, and, as he thought perhaps that he had been getting preferential treatment because he was an officer , he resigned his commission as First Lieutenant in July 1862 and re-enlisted on 28 February 1863 as a Private in Company C of the 9th Louisiana Infantry; Confederate States of America, at Camp Ewell, Petersburg, Virginia.
Koonce was admitted to C.S.A General Hospital in Charlottesville, Virginia on 25 Feb 1863.

He received a gunshot wound to the hand on 4 May 1863 in the battles near Fredericksburg, Virginia, and admitted to Chimborazo Hospital No. 5 in Richmond, Virginia on 6 May 1863. On 7 May 1863 he was transferred to Lynchburg, Virginia.
Koonce was captured at Strasburg, Virginia on September 22, 1864 at the Battle of Fisher's Hill. He was received by Union forces at Harper's Ferry, Virginia on Oct. 3, 1864 and sent to Point Lookout, Maryland Prisoner Camp. On February 10, 1865 he was paroled and transferred for exchange. He was received at Coxes Landing, James River, Virginia on February 14 and 15, 1865, and exchanged. He was officially paroled at Appomattox Court House, Virginia on April 10, 1865, at the close of the Civil War, and returned to his home in Bienville Parish.
Robert Amander Koonce was said to have broken his sword in battled, so he “borrowed” a sword from a dead Yankee soldier, whom he assumed didn’t need it anymore

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.?


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.

-------------------------------------------------------------

I am the great-grand son of Ulixes LeBlanc, (1879- 1934) and Magdelen Papillon, (1888- 1966). Ulixes and Magdelen had nine children: Esther, Gaston, Aulton, Arthur, Ella, Luceil, Austin, Melvin and Martha LeBlanc. Esther LeBlanc married Lee LaTour, son of Ozeme LaTour and Marie Guillory. Ozeme LaTour was the son of Homer A. LaTour and Helene Richard. Information regarding Helene Richard is vague;
there is no record of her marriage to Homer A. LaTour, however, there is a record of her first marriage to
Julien Bellard.

When I started research on the family, all I knew was that the family was from Okmulgee County, Oklahoma. My father told me after my mother, Catherine LaTour died, that her family was from Opelousas and Toulouse. Ozeme LaTour and Marie Guillory had eleven children: Lee, Ophelia, E'villa, Laura, Clarence, Marie, Joseph, elestine, Adam, Ulysse, and Ethel. Lee LaTour, my grandfather, married Esther LeBlanc. Ophelia LaTour, my great-aunt married Joseph LeBlanc, brother of Ulixes LeBlanc, my great grandfather, two brothers married sister and brother.



My paternal grandparents, Esther LeBlanc and Lee LaTour were married December 12, 1928 at Uganda Martyrs Catholic Church in Okmulgee County, Oklahoma. From their union, five )5) children were born: Catherine, Lorene, Rayfield, John Adam, and Charles. The family lived in Boynton, Muskogee County, Oklahoma. For some reason, uknown to me, Lee left or divorced Esther, moved to California, and joined the military. Esther moved to Muskogee, Muskogee County, Oklahoma were she meet Fred D. Wakefield. They produced one (1) child together, Mildred Wakefield. My mother, Catherine LaTour, daughter of Lee LaTour and Esther LeBlanc married my father, Osborne Thomas son of John Bennett Thomas and Viola Coursey on September 15, 1951. To this union, six (6) children were born: Patricia Ann, Osborne (fils), LaRita Viola, Kathy, Derrick Lee, and Harrison.
