When looking and reading on the topic of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy, one should not overlook those persons who were captured with him and who also spent time imprisoned.

One of these persons was Francis R. Lubbock, former Governor to the State of Texas, who returned to Texas after the end of the war.

Another person captured with Jefferson Davis was John Henniger Reagan, Postmaster General of the Confederacy and acting Secretary of the Treasury at the end of the war.

After release from prison, John Henniger Reagan also moved to Texas and later became  a United States Senator. (1887-1891)

In order to assist in his Career Development, John Henniger Reagan was the recepient of an "Honarary Degree" which was bestowed upon him by Tulane University of New Orleans, LA.

And, not unlike any good "Son of the South", John Henniger Reagan named his frist born son "Jefferson Davis Reagan".

Thereafter, Jefferson Davis Reagan had a daughter, Ruby Taylor Regan, who married Thomas Soule, Jr.

Those not familiar with the "Soule" name should research the history of New Orleans.

This somewhat places into perspective the #1 and #2 positions held on the Board of Tulane.

One relatively good article on General Randall Lee Gibson.

With his "University of Louisiana" education and aid-de-camp to the Governor of LA experience, as well as Law Practice, it is not difficult to see why he became the first head of Tulane.

Also referenced is the quite famous "Washington Artillery" of Louisiana which had it's own building in New Orleans after the war.

is this Thomas Soule related to Henri Soule?

"ìIn 1958, three of the men who worked for Henri Soule found another place on 55th Street which had been a speakeasy during Prohibition and decided to open an elegant bistro.

Creating the restaurant was intimidating. The three men were coming from Mr. Soule who set the standards. But just before they opened, there was some kind of argument between Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy and Henri Soule. Kennedy came to one of the owners and said, ìFreddy, you open your place, weíll be there on the first day.î And when the restaurant opened on September 21, 1960, the Kennedys were there. They backed La Caravelle morally and financially.

Less than two months after La Caravelle opened, John F. Kennedy became president. The timing was terrific. He and Jackie came to La Caravelle often. It became the favored place.

After La Caravelle, La Grenouille followed in 62 and Lutece in 63. The 1960ís was a French culinary invasion. La Caravelle was the first restaurant that bridged out from Le Pavilion. But everything came from Henri Soule."

Reily Coffee Company!

May as well check out this GOOD Southern family.

http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/la/e-...bios/reily.text

Particular attention should be given to:

1.  Clinton, LA

2.  Marriage to Estelle Weaks, Daughter of Confederate Colonel James Weaks.

3.  Tulane

4.  Newcomb College

And:

The "Boatner" family from which the William Boatner Reily name comes, were also of Confederate Army heritage.

There were other members of the Oswald family employed at Reily Coffee Company.

Not the kind of family business that would normally employ "Marxist"/Soviet defectors.

Lastly, one just may want to check out the Board of Tulane as well as the varioius years of REX.

The Reily name appears right along with many other names to ultimately follow.

"Col. I. H. Boatner died on 27th March, at his home, Marengo Plantation.

"In January, 1960, Cuba expropriates 70,000 acres of land held by U.S. sugar companies, who refused to sell the land at any price."

"This land includes 35,000 acres held by the powerful United Fruit Co., which had attained over 270,000 acres of Cuban land at the time."

http://www.marxist.org/history/cuba/subject/bay-of-pigs/

Anyone who has not studied the United Fruit Company, should certainly do so.

Especially since there is a direct link-in-the-chain from United Fruit to Lee Harvey Oswald.

There exists so many items of historical significance related to New Orleans, LA, Dallas, TX, and LHO's associations, that the most simple manner to list each is under a common heading.

Therefore, this Topic Title will be utilized to post much of this information which also has bearing on other topics of discussion.

____________________________________________________________________

1.  Attention, Pioneers of Dallas, Co.

All membes of our association who can, are requested to assemble at 9:30 a.m. to-morrow (October 25) at the Live Oak Grocery, 949 Elm Street, to attend in a body, the funeral of our lamented brother, Maxime Guillot.

October 24, 1889, Dallas Times Herald, page 4, Column 4

____________________________________________________________________

Under the LHO topic, information relative to LHO & his cousin PGT Beauregard was provided.

This kinship came about as a result of the marriage of "Bella" Claverie to a member of the Beauregard family.

What was not said was that this was the second marriage for Bella Clavarie.

2. Bella Clavarie

Father: Bertrand Clavarie

Mother: Clara Bordelon

Marriage (1): Joseph Edward Constance

Children: Joseph Gaston Constance

Joseph Gaston Constance Married Elizabeth Media Guillot, of the Avoylles Parish, LA families of Guillot.

Therefore, LHO also had a distant cousin who was married into the Guillot family.
