Seeking information on William Offutt, listed in "The Daily Picayune" dated January 26, 1876 as having been shot and killed. Article states that he was the father of four daughters and a son "Dr. Offutt" who practiced in the parish of Avoyelles. Article also goes on to say that he had recently lost his wife.
I am trying to add to my Offutt information, and I believe that this Colonel Offutt is William Offutt who was born circa 1807, married first Eliza Posey Jan. 25, 1834 and later married (Jan 7, 1861) Evelina S. Moore (Who hjad previously married a William Prescott.
The William Offutt that I have information on had sons William Johnson Offutt (Died 1895, buried in St. Landry Parish, and John Posey Offutt (Died 1862 at Gaines Mill with the 8th LA Inf.); daughters Constance, Alplireda, Eleanor, Lucie, Marie Celeste, and Mary E.
Any help appreciated.
