The obituary that is seen here was clipped from a local newspaper and is a bit short but still includes all of this information. Written after the death of Jeanne Roman Lavillebeuvre, her obituary mentions, by name, her parents (Gov. A.B. Roman and Aimee Parent), husband (Eli F. Lavillebeuvre), children (Judge C.H. Lavillebeuvre, Mrs. Thomas McCabe Hyman, and Miss Ida Lavillebeuvre), and one brother (Judge Alfred Roman); as well as, where she was born (the Cabanocey Plantation in St. James Parish), her devotion to religion (Catholicism), funeral details (her home at 74 Dumaine Street, New Orleans, La. at 5 P.M.), and her ultimate resting place (the St. Louis Cemetery). Jeanne was born Jeanne Aimee Roman on May 25, 1818 as one of five children and died on July 21, 1889. There is a small tear near the bottom, proper left corner of the clipping and several tack holes near the top.
