Mark Bourgoyne

Mark Bourgoyne Family-
Elodie (Mark's wife), daughters Hazel and May Berta, Mark

Mark Bourgoyne, the son of Jules Adolphe Bourgoyne and Marie Victorine Fryoux, was born between 1868-1870 in Louisiana, probably West Baton Rouge Parish.  

On 08 September 1892, Mark married Elodie Tullier, the daughter of Joseph Adonalis Tullier and Caroline Broussard.  They are shown together on the 1910 census in Police Jury Ward 6, Iberville Parish, Louisiana.  By then, Mark and Elodie had been married about 17 years and had 5 children of which 3 were still living- daughter Media, age 12, son Matthew, age 6 and daughter Hazel, age 4.  

In 1920, Mark and Elodie were still residing in the same location.  Their children Media, Matthew and Hazel  remained in the same household and, in addition, Mark and Elodie had another daughter- May B., age 4.  According to the census record, Mark worked as a laborer in a bottling plant.  Daughter Media, then 21, was a telephone operator and son Matthew, who was 16, was a laborer in a machine shop.  

Mark died about 1928.  I have no further information on him or his wife.  On the 1870 census, the name "Maxemilian Bourgogne", age 2, appears in the household of Victorine Bourgogne.  I am assuming this person is the same as Mark, although that could be erroneous.  At this point I am uncertain of the facts.

From what information I have gathered, the children of Mark Bourgoyne and Elodie Tullier were:
i.    Media Bourgoyne- born about 1898 and died 1983; married Herman L. Litz
ii.   Matthew Mark Bourgoyne- born about 1904, married Anona Neff
iii.  Hazel Bourgoyne- born about 1906 and died 1976; married Eddie Leon Jackson
iv.  May Berta Bourgoyne- born about 1915 and died 1994
