18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry
Notley C. Devilliers, Pvt., Co.F.
...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 Pvt. Notley C. Devilliers 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.

Information reprinted from:
NOTLEY C. DEVILLIERS,
NOTLEYVILLE...Notley C. Devillers, a prominent citizen and
representative of an old and distinguished family, was born
near where he now resides, February 14, 1841. He is the son
of Antoine C. and Melicaire (Bordelon) Devilliers, both of
whom are natives of St. Landry parish. Antoine C. Devilliers
died in 1863, at the age of fifty-five years; his wife
survived him until 1868, and died at the age of fifty years.
The subject of our sketch spent his school days in St.
Landry, and received a good classical education. In
September, 1861, he enlisted at Opelousas, Louisiana, in
Capt. L. H. Garland's company of the Eighteenth Louisiana
Infantry, in which he served until May, 1865, as an
orderly in the ranks, he was at the battles of Pittsburg
Landing and Camp Bisland. At Natchitoches he was taken
prisoner and retained a short time at New Orleans, where he
was paroled. At the close of the war Mr. Devilliers saw the
necessity of going to work, his estate having suffered
heavily from the depredations of
the war. His father left him a patrimony of one hundred and
fifty-six dollars, which he expended for live stock. By Mr.
Devilliers' practical management, economy and enterprise, he
has succeeded in accumulating a considerable amount of
property. In 1881 he opened a store in the town of
Notleyville, which was named in his honor. His plantation on
Bayou Teche is one of the finest in this section. Mr.
Devilliers was married, in 1865, to Miss Amyrithe
Devilliers, and they are the parents of seven living
