I was hoping to have some breakthrough news resulting from my late Sept trip
to Cincinnati Ohio, but none has come through to date, so I will post what I
learned from that trip.
I ended up concentrating on Charles Louis LaBoiteaux, who was the person who
commissioned Consuelo Furman to write a LaBoyteaux genealogy. I was very
easy to find info on him. I first found his obit in the Times-Star, Sat Jan
25 1947 issue. He was a very successful business person and was one of the
persons who left land for the establishment of the LaBoiteaux Woods in
Cincinnati. The other person who donated the land was Mrs. Isaac LaBoiteaux
(sister-in-law) of Bryn Mawr PA. C.L. Laboiteaux, as he was known,
established the Republic Paper Board Company, the LaBoiteaux Co., and Oakley
He has a sister named Grace Laboiteaux who never married.
I believe Charles Louis LaBoiteaux is number 1699 in Arlene's book, where he
is listed as C. Lewis Laboyteaux. In the Cincinnati records, this branch of
the family is consistently spelled LaBoiteaux. This made it very easy for
me to find living descendents of C.L.!!
The death record I copied from a film at the main library, lists birth as
Feb. 6 1866 and place as Madison Indiana, although it also says he resided
most of life in Cincinnati. Wife was Edith Cist LaBoiteaux. (His obit lists
her as Edith Mary Cist LaBoiteaux). Father is listed as Isaac N. LaBoiteuax
and mother as Margarete McLinnan. Usual occupation is Retired-President C.
L. Laboiteaux Co. (Paper Boxes). Was buried in Spg. Grove Cem. Died at age
80 from one year illness of psychosis of senility. Place of death was his
residence, 5300 Hamilton Ave. Cincinnati. Died Jan 25 1947 at 4:00 am.
This death record is from the Ohio Dept. of Health, roll # 1003, state file
Through children listed in his obit, I finally contacted a descendent of
C.L. I will cut and paste the only communication I have had from her to

Dear Ms. Zaring:
My name is Antoinette (Toni) LaBoiteaux. My father was Robert Louis
LaBoiteaux; grandfather, Charles Louis LaBoiteaux. I do have
information...........but I have to find it. Obviously, I am not involved
with genealogy research or I would have it at a moment's notice......sorry
I was born in Cincinnati, not far from Colerain Township. There is an old
cemetery in Mt. Healthy with old Laboiteaux headstones. I am embarrassed to
say that I have never visited!I'll see what I can dig up and forward to
I also copied the obit for Grace Laboiteaux, sister of C.L. It contains
some info I had not heard before. Like, the LaBoiteaux's came to America in
1638 and founded New Rochelle NY.
I see one more item I can add to Arlene's book. She has three children
listed for C. Lewis (1699). They had 4 children, Robert L. should be added.
He is listed in the obits of both parents, and is the father of the above
