"Death of Pierre Fayard"
"Veteran Cavalryman, Stock Breeder and Patriot, Passes"
"Leaving Three Sturdy Generations to Mourn the Loss of Remarkable Citizen"

"Pierre Fayard died last Sunday at Bay St. Louis. He was born July 25, 1820. He was a prominent stock raiser for many years
until recently, when he retired from active business. He was a member of the Confederate Cavalry and rode a horse raised on the
farm, which proved to be one of the best in the service. After the war he returned to Bay St. Louis and resumed the business of
cattle raising.
Mr. Fayard had never been sick in his life up to a few months before his death, and he possessed all of his teeth and famous for
his strength and energy. He was a man of genial disposition and very popular. Mr. Fayard leaves a wife, who was Miss Estelle Favre,
of Bay St. Louis, who is 88 years old. He also leaves six sons and two daughters, all of whom are married and live in their own homes;
sixty grandchildren and twenty-five great-grandchildren.
Mr. Fayard was known throughout Hancock County, and loved by all who knew him. He was a staunch friend, a good Christian, and
a true patriot.
The remains were interred in the family burying ground, formerly owned by his father-in-law, Francois Favre, and the funeral was one
of the largest ever held in Hancock County."
