Lionel Arthur Bourgoyne


Lionel Arthur Bourgoyne

Lionel Arthur Bourgoyne was born 11 November 1891 in West Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, the son of Joseph Anatole Bourgoyne and Margueritte Tullier.  He is shown in the household of his parents on the 1910 census of West Baton Rouge Parish.  He was then 19 years old, single and worked as a laborer on nearby farms.  

Lionel married Henrietta Allain on 12 April 1917.  By 1920, the couple resided in Police Jury Ward 8 of Iberville Parish, Louisiana and had two children- Charles and Agnes.  Lionel worked as a salesman in a grocery store according to the census record.  In 1921, Lionel and Henrietta welcomed a new addition to their family- their son, Andrew Joseph.  

A turn of events forced several changes in Lionel's life over the course of the next few years.  His wife, Henrietta, died unexpectedly.  After her death, Lionel and his children moved back to West Baton Rouge Parish near other family members.  About 1928, Lionel remarried.  His second wife was Jeannie Lucille Allemond.  On the 1930 census, Lionel "Burgoyne" and his wife Jeanne A. were residents in Police Jury Ward 1 of West Baton Rouge Parish.  Lionel's three children from his first marriage resided with them.  Lionel then earned a living as a delivery man on a bread route.

Lionel Bourgoyne is listed on Lot #3 on the Sardine Point settlement and Lot #20 on the Cut Off settlement.

I will update information after my search through the 1940 census.  Lionel Arthur Bourgoyne died October 1973.  There are still many blanks that need to be filled in on his family.
