Battle Flag
of the
18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry

...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.)

Her God-parents were Pierre Vicknair and Celeste Perilloux, wife of George Hymel. She married Cyrien Chauff on May 1, 1847 and died a scant six months later on November 11, 1847 leaving no children.

2. Marcellin Perilloux was born on July 23, 1832 in St. John the Baptist Parish. He was baptized on August 25, 1832 at Edgard with Antone Vital and Catherine Rice as his sponsors.

8. Francois Henry Perilloux was born on September 16, 1849 in St. John the Baptist Parish. He married Marie Louise Villere around 1879 at St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. He passed away on March 17, 1883, probably in New Orleans.

Prior to Francois Numa's married to Eve Perilloux, he enlisted in the 18th Regiment of the Louisiana Infantry, also known as the Chasseurs St. Jacques on October 5, 1861. He joined the army as a 2nd Sergeant. His brother Simeon Alexandre Poche' was also a member of this regiment. He was paroled on or about June 5, 1865.

After they were married, Francois Numa and Eve Poche' had at least four children. They were:

1. Nina Marie Poche' who was born on May 8, 1867 in St. John the Baptist Parish. She was baptized on June 8, 1867. She married Francois Maturin Poche' on May 6, 1886. They were first cousins.

2. Ida Cecile Poche was born about December 1874. She married George Joseph Tassin on September 4, 1893 in New Orleans. Ida Cecile and George Joseph are my [Submitter: Brian G. Pope] Great Grandparents .

3. Marie (YaYa) Poche' was born about June 1878, and;

4. Noelie Poche who was born about 1880 and married Frank Perilloux. We do know that in 1920 she was living with George Tassin and his family at 2267 St. Claude in New Orleans.

There is conflicting data as to the cause of Francois Numa Poche's death. His death certificate says he died of cirrhosis of the liver. However, when his wife Eve filed for a Confederate Widow's Pension, she indicates that he died of rheumatism. Whatever the cause, Francois Numa passed away on May 29, 1891 in New Orleans.

Eve Perilloux Poche' died on May 15, 1917 at the age of 71. She had been living with her daughter and son-in-law Ida Cecile Poche' and George Tassin, claiming no mean of support on her pension application. She died at St. Amelia, in St. James Parish.
