Honore Family Plot

Eh la bas y’all! In addition to our ongoing series of historical and genealogical information, we will occasionally post pictures of the final resting places of our ancestors as we travel to cemeteries across the state and the Gulf Coast. You never know, we might come across one of your relatives!

Our first post is the Honore Family plot in Saint Louis Cemetery No. 3 in New Orleans. This Honore family has roots in Pointe Coupee Parish but migrated to New Orleans in the late nineteenth century. The marker on this plot bears both French and English inscriptions and dates back to at least 1895. Among those buried here are:

Joseph Honore (1833-1907); Emesie Chesse Honore (1843-1931); Marie H. Decuir (1871-1895); Josephine Honore Haydel (1881-1972); Justine Honore Saulet (1888-1967); Lawrence A. Honore (1910-1961); Curtis M. Haydel (1910-1937); George E. Jacobs (?-1951).

  1. Great post. The Honore’s from this family line have been in and around New Orleans since the early 1700’s. The first born in the lineage is Catiche D’etrean.

    • I am from the Catiche D’estrehan line. Do you have any information on a bed and breakfast she operated in New Orleans? Lauren Honore’-Hooks

  2. I am looking for a woman named Euphrasie or Euphrasia Honore. All I am finding re: birth is 1800 or 1801 in Pointe Coupe Parish or West Baton Rouge. About 1818 she married Joseph Labat their four (4) children were born in Bay St. Louis, MS; then Shieldsborough. Their children were Adalaide, Amelia, Joseph & Zulma or Zulmay. After Joseph died about 1832, Euphrasia married Pierre Prudeaux and had two (2) children. We cannot find anything on her after 1880, nowhere in area graves, church records etc. I am hoping you can help me if you are related to her.

  3. I am looking for relatives of Jean Antoine (Jean Anthony) Honoré
    [born in Paris, FR] who established a keel boat company from Louisville, KY, to NOLA area around 1810.
    I have not been able to locate documentation about the boat company, but family lore says he became a millionaire since it was so successful.
    His partner may have been Bartalemí Tardiveau also of Louisville.

    Also his son, Henry Hamilton Honoré (Louisville until 1855, then Chicago).

    Thank you for your time.
