From The Daily Picayune (New Orleans, Louisiana), Thursday, December 12, 1912:


Dies at Seventy-Seven, After an Honorable Career.

Frank Ducoing, a Confederate veteran, for several years connected with the office of the civil sheriff and one of the most familiar figures in the lower portion of the city, died at his home at 1016 Elysian Fields Avenue yesterday morning, at 8 o'clock, after an illness of but two days. With the passing of Mr. Ducoing, who died in his seventy-seventh year, disappears one of the familiar types of the gentlemen of the old school. A native of this city, the deceased lived here throughout his life, mostly in the same neighborhood in the Third District. Having attended the private schools of the city and having had his education completed by private tutors, he was first engaged as a cigar manufacturer and for several years conducted with success a factory in the Seventh Ward, but when the Civil War broke out he was one of the first to join a regiment and together with his elder brother, Paul, enlisted in the same company with Captain William Walsh, serving to the end. Returning to the city of his birth, the deceased resumed his business as a cigar manufacturer, but about fifteen years ago became connected with the office of the civil sheriff, under Captain Walsh, a lifelong friend.

Mr. Ducoing married Miss Margaret Kennedy, who preceded him in the grave several years ago. Though not possessed with a strong constitution, he was quite active for his age, attending to his duties up to last week, when he took sick with an attack of acute indigestion which affected his heart. He breathed his last peacefully yesterday morning at 8 o'clock, having taken to his bed but two days earlier. Miss Emma Ducoing, for several years a teacher in McDonogh No. 16, and four sons, Paul A., for several years a clerk in the Civil District Court; William, a clerk in the Southern Pacific office; James, in the cotton business and Frank, Jr., connected with the firm of George M. Cohan & Co.

The funeral will be held this afternoon, at 3 o'clock, the religious services, which will be conducted by Rev. Father Hanrahan, will take place in St Peter and St Paul's Church. Interment in the family vault in old St. Louis Cemetery No. 2, in Claiborne Street."
