Louisiana:  Comprising Sketches of Parishes, Towns, Events, Institutions, and
Persons, Arranged in Cyclopedic Form (volume 3), pp. 262-263.  Edited by Alcée

Loisel, Victor, planter and United States marshal, was born in Thibodaux,
Lafourche parish, La., Dec. 28, 1865, the son of Victor and Eliza (Chauffe)
Loisel.  His father was born in Normandy, France, and died in St. James
parish, La., in 1895, at the age of 74 years.  He came to this country when
about 30 years of age, and married Eliza Chauffe, who was born of German
parents in Assumption parish, La.  He served in the French army with gallantry
in the African campaigns.  The subject of this personal sketch was reared in
Lafourche and Assumption parishes and educated in private and public schools. 
He then took up field labor, later becoming overseer and manager of
plantations.  By reason of his success in this field of endeavor, Mr. Loisel
became a planter on his own account in St. James parish, where he now owns and
operates a valuable plantation.  In 1904 he was appointed United States
marshal, a position he has since held, being twice (1908 and 1912)
reappointed, which reappointments indicate the acceptability with which he has
served in this office.  In politics Mr. Loisel is a Republican, and
fraternally a 32nd degree Mason.  He has been twice married.  His first wife,
whom he married in 1885, bore the maiden name of Emma Chauffe.  She died in
1887, leaving 1 son, Henry J. Loisel, now deputy clerk of the United States
district court.  In 1893 Mr. Loisel married a second time, Miss Alice Le Deoux
becoming his wife.  Nine children were born unto this marriage, three of whom
died in infancy.  The 6 living children are  Eve,  Sophie,  Noelie,  Marcel, 
Le Deoux and  Alice Loisel.
