18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry
Adlin Durio, Corpl., Pvt., Co. B., A.
...Flag design is based on a small torn
section of the regimental battle flag which is on display in
the Confederate Museum, New Orleans, Louisiana. May 19,
1865. When the 18th Regiment was disbanded the flag
was torn into ten pieces and a piece given to each of
the ten company commanders. (Placement of Battle
Inscriptions is specualtive and based on similar Confederate
battle flags of the same period.)
...At this point in time, we are still
searching for an image of Corpl. Adlin Durio and we hope to
add one in the forseeable future.Should any of his
decendants have a photo of him, and would gratiously care to
place a copy of his photo at this web site...this researcher
would be grateful.

ADLIN DURLO, ARNAUDVILLE...Adlin Durlo is a
native of St. Martin parish, born November 12, 1838. His
parents, Alexander Durio and Adline (Chautin) Durio, were
natives of St. Landry and St. Martin parishes respectively.
Alexandria Durio was a successful planter of St. Martin
parish, was prominent in local affairs and served as justice
of the peace and member of the police ury for a number of
years. He died in 1856, at the age of fifty-four years. Mrs.
Durio died in 1855, at the age of thirty-five. There were
born to them six children, of whom the subject of this
sketch was the second.
Adlin Durio spent his school days in St. Martin and St.
Landry parishes, and received a good practical education.
Upon his father's death he gave his attention to planting,
making a specialty of cotton and corn. In January of 1862 he
enlisted in the Confederate service, and served as
Lieutenant in Company G, Yellow Jacket Battalion, which, two
years later, was consolidated with the Eighteenth
Louisiana Infantry. His regiment disbanded in Alexandria
at the close of the war. Mr. Durio was in many active
engagements, among which were Pleasant Hill, Norwood
Plantation and Mansfield. At the last named battle he
received a gun shot wound in the right limb, from which he
was disabled for some time.
At the close of the war his capital consisted of a
Confederate uniform and three hundred dollars in old debts.
In 1866 he commenced planting on Bayou Teche, in St.
Martin's parish. The first year his crop was destroyed and
he was compelled to sell his plantation. In 1868 he
commenced a mercantile business with a small stock of goods.
In this he was more successful, and his efforts since that
time have been attended with abundant success. His business
amounts annually to more than $20,000. Some years after
opening his mercantile business he bought a plantation in
St. Landry parish, to which he has since added until he now
owns twenty-five hundred acres of land on Bayou Teche. In
1888 he was elected mayor of the the town of Arnaudville. He
has never aspired to political honor, but has always taken a
prominent part in political workings. He was united in
marriage, in 1866, with Miss Anis Guilbeau, of St. Martin's
parish. She died in1881, having become the mother of seven
children, viz: Dr. A. C. of this place; Clara, Emma, Ida,
Marie, Lucie Regenald, Lucy. In 1882 Mr. Durio was married a
second time, to Miss Lizzie L. Gilbeau, and to them have
been born four children Aldin, Jr., Carrie, Anis and Henry.
Mr. Durio and family are members of the St. Joseph Catholic
church of this place.
