I have here a social security application for a Beatrice May (YAUKY)
LABOYTEAUX. She was born 4-15-1896, the daughter of Henry YAUKY and Cora K.
SHIELDS in Newcastle, IN.
I got this when I was looking for my relative GRACE LABOYTEAUX
(anyone out there know of her????) who was the daughter of Morgan LABOYTEAUX
of Romulus NY, and born in 1896.
I am STILL LOOKING FOR Sarah (Carey) Laboyteaux's parents. She was from
Seneca, NY and born abt. 1833. Sarah CAREY married WILLIAM LABOYTEAUX.
Anyway, This SSDI is probably of more value to one of Beatrice's relatives,
so if you would like it, please contact me. I sent off $7 for it.
all the best,

>QRYTEXT: Thomas Laboyteaux was the son of Peter and Anna LABOYTEAUX, old
settlers of Henry County, [IN] east of New Castle. Peter is buried in the
Batson Cemetery, Liberty Township, and Anna, his wife, in the cemetery near
Greentown, Howard County, Indiana. The family came to Henry county from near
>Thomas was born July 4, 1836, and was married April 12, 1860, to Ellen M.,
daughter of Imla and Susan COOPER, of the well known COOPER family, of
Harrison Township. Imla was one of four COOPER brothers, Caleb, Imla,
William and John, who in the early thirties, emigrated, with their
families, from near Cadiz, Harrison County, Ohio, to the western part of
Henry County, Indiana, from which fact comes the name of Harrison Township
and the town of Cadiz. From their first settlement in the county to the
present time, the family has played an important part in the commercial,
social, political and religious affairs of Harrison Township.
>Thomas LABOYTEAUX was a farmer, near Cadiz. In the Winter of 1863-4, when
Captain Volney Hobson was organizing what became Company E, 9th Indiana
Cavalry, LABOYTEAUX joined the company and was mustered into the service of
the United States, as a private, January 8, 1864. He was a faithful and
efficient soldier and, voicing the sentment of his surviving comrades, he
was brave and daring. He was captured near Franklin, Tennessee, December 1,
1864, along with Robert W. Gilbreath and Andrew J. McCormack, Sultana
survivors, and all were held, as prisoners of war, in Cahaba Prison,
Alabama, until March, 1865, when they were released on parole and sent to
Vicksburg, Mississippi, where they remained until they boarded the doomed
Sultana, homeward bound. LABOYTEAUX, less fortunate than his companions, was
lost and his body never recovered.
>When Private LABOYTEAUX went into the army, he left his family, consisting
of his wife and two children, living in Cadiz. The children were Agnes, born
February 10, 1861, and Leonora, born September 24, 1864. Mrs. LABOYTEAUX has
ever since her husbands death retained his name, residing continuously with
her daughters, in Cadiz, where the family is universally respected and

This site has descendants of one Philip VOLKERTSE (1670-1740) who are found
in early Dutch NY; Rarian, Somerset Co., NY (an area of the LABOYTEAUXs
family); and elswhere. Thought possibly others may wish to access this
site. Who knows where we might find a family connection.
