Robichaux, Alcide, legislator, general merchant, financier, and well-known
club member, was born at the family plantation home, 2 miles south of
Raceland, La., Oct. 1, 1880; son of Philip and Georgiana (Falgout) Robichaux,
the former of whom was born at Thibodaux, La., 1854, and died at his home near
Raceland, 1906.  The mother was born one-half mile north of Raceland and is
living at this time.  The paternal grandfather, August Robichaux, was born at
Thibodaux and resided there throughout his life.  The paternal great-
grandfather was a resident of Lafourche parish.  The maternal grandfather was
George Falgou
t and the maternal grandmother Justine Robichaux; maternal great-
grandfather, Ardian Robichaux.  Both maternal grand and great-grandparents
were natives of Lafourche parish, La.  After Philip Robichaux married he
removed to the vicinity of Raceland and engaged in mercantile business at that
place.  He was engaged in merchandising throughout his life, and at the time
of his death was operating the store now conducted by the son, Alcide.  He was
a democrat, and at one time was induced to become a candidate for sheriff of
Lafourche parish, but did not receive the nomination.  Alcide Robichaux was
the eldest of 6 children born to his parents, all of whom are living.  He was
educated at the public schools of Lafourche parish, following which he engaged
as clerk in the store of Simon Abraham at Raceland, where he remained 3 years,
and then, in partnership with his father, opened the present general store,
with which he has been connected since that time, and of which, following his
father's death, he became sole owner.  Jan. 15, 1911, Mr. Robichaux was
married to Miss Allie Moore of Union parish, a granddaughter of Richard T.
Moore, a pioneer in that section of the state.  Mrs. Robichaux graduated from
high school at Bernice, Union parish, La., the Judson college, Marion, Ala.,
and the State normal school at Natchitoches, La., and was , previous to her
marriage, a teacher at Raceland.  It should be stated here that Mr.
Robichaux's paternal great-grandfather, Joseph Robichaux, was born in
Lafourche parish, where his life also ended.  He married Miss Rassicot.  Mr.
Robichaux is a member of the Roman Catholic church, the Young Men's Gymnastic
club of New Orleans, and the Chess, Checkers, and Whist club of New Orleans. 
Politically, he has always been a democrat.  In 1912, with 3 other candidates
in the field, he entered the race for the state legislature.  He received the
nomination and was elected to represent his district in the Louisiana general
assembly.  During the session of the legislature he served on the following
important committees: Public works, lands and levies, corporations, banks and
banking, liquidation of state debt, and others.  Hon. Alcide Robichaux is a
member of the board of directors of Raceland bank, and has been identified
