Bourg, Dr. Lester Bernard, D. D. S., successful dentist, White Castle, La.,
was born at Thibodaux, La., Dec. 26, 1889, son of Judge Nemour T. and Jullett
(Webre) Bourg, both of whom were natives of the locality in which the son was
born, where the father followed the vocation of a justice of peace and farmer
throughout life.  The paternal grandfather, McAllister Bourg, also was a
native of Louisiana and followed the business of live stock.  He is now
deceased.  Lester Bernard Bourg was the third of 10 children born to his
parents, these being now as follows:  Joseph L., a bookkeeper, employed in 
New Orleans;  James N., bookkeeper, employed at Colfax, La.;  Lester Bernard, the
subject of this sketch;  Clarence J., a student at Georgetown university,
Washington, D. C.;  Addie Marie,  Mabel Florence, wife of E. J. Labit, of New
Orleans, and mother of 3 children; the seventh and eighth children died in
infancy;  Ethel Genevieve and  Marie Pauline.  The fifth, ninth, and tenth now
reside at the paternal home.  Lester Bernard Bourg graduated from Thibodaux
College with the class of 1907.  He then entered the New Orleans College of
Dentistry, now a department of Tulane university, and graduated with the
degree of D. D. S., in the class of 1910.  A short time after the completion
of his professional education he began the practice of dentistry at Thibodaux,
La., but in Oct., 1911, moved his offices to Lockport, the same state, where
he remained in practice about 18 months.  In June, 1913, he removed to White
Castle and has since remained in practice there.  The doctor is a member of
the Catholic church and is affiliated with the Catholic Knights of America and
Knights of Columbus.  March 23, 1911, Dr. Bourg was married to Miss Margaret
Jones, a daughter of James O., and Catherine (Muller) Jones, both of whom are
natives of Mississippi.  The mother was born at Bolton.  Mrs. Bourg's father
was long in mercantile business at Greenville, Miss., and now lives in
retirement at that place.
