Maxmillen and Louise Gillette

I read that you are trying to get a photograph of the headstone for Maxmillen and Louise Gillette to prove membership for the Daughters of the Republic of Texas application. I went to the cemetery today, and I regret to tell you that the headstone has toppled over face down, therefore I cannot get a photo of the stone. I will further tell you that I did find a photo of the headstone and could barely make out the Gillette name, but it was too dark to be of much use.

Below is a list of all those buried at 42 Tulip Aloe Orange if they can be of help:

First Middle Last Name Age Date of Burial

Child W.T. De Valcour sb 02/28/1926
John Louis Gillet 19m 08/28/1906
Victor August Gillette 54 05/01/1955
Maxmillen Gillette 87 06/16/1951
Louise Picou Gillette 75 04/09/1952
Mrs. Paul Le Breton 54 10/26/1926
Paul Le Breton 73 11/28/1943
Widow Jean Picou 69 12/01/1919
Paul Picou 38 10/09/1925
Jeanne Picou 81 12/17/1964
Albert John Picou 83 08/22/1962
John Picou 10/02/1904

If this will be of much help, I did find the obituary for Louise Gillette (below), but unfortunately could not find one for Maxmillen.

Source: New Orleans, Times-Picayune, Wednesday, April 9, 1952, page 2.

GILLETTE—On Tuesday, April 8, 1952, at 7:55 o’clock p.m. LOUISE PICOU, wife of the late Maxmillen Gillette; mother of George, Victor, Roland Gillette, Mrs. Will De Valcour, Mrs Joseph Mazoue of New Orleans, La., Claude of Stuitgart, Ark., and Vernon Gillette of Forth Worth, Tex., and Mrs. Louise Hale of Los Angeles, Calif.; also survived by 18 grandchildren and eight great-children.

RE: Roy Travis Clopton #103835144
Hi Mary, nice job with Roy's photos. He died so young, what happened to him and what was his career?
Was he actually in Vietnam while in the military?
Did you know him personally, or know enough to write a bio for him?..or I could do it with more details, if you prefer.
BTW, I viewed Lewis' memorial...he's your brother?...just curious, as I lost my brother at a young age.
Anyway, let me know what you come up with and let's stay in touch.

RE: Roy Travis Clopton #103835144
Hello Mary!
Looks like we are inlaws. Roy was first husband to Janis Woolworth; then Gene Cayot Jr(my cousin) married her.
Thankyou for the prompt reply and nice summary. That's good enough for me...unless 'that other' Roy born on rhe same date comes

BTW, would you have any pics of Roy or maybe of Janis or the Cayots?

Please go ahead and post the birth listing on Roy's memorial it is somethng until someone with photos comes along.

Thanks for your efforts

Roy Travis Clopton #103835144
I got your request. I'm unable to find evidence that Ollie Travis Clopton is his father; although it sure sounds as though it is correct. Are you a relative, friend or have documentation; as I'm unable to verify from my end.
Thankyou for your attention,
Best regards

I am so very sorry for the loss of Lewis. He was a very dear friend. I have known him since 1993 when he first started working here at Stevens Transport. We have always kept in touch and remained good friends throughout the years. He is truly missed as my friend and here at Stevens Transport as one of our top drivers. Sincerely and with love, Melody Cano Bronson
