    Notes 
    • The information about the children of Auguste and Marie Victoire came from the 1880 census and the birth records of the City of New Orleans. The census records of 1880 apparently contain several typos. Some children are listed with the wrong age. For example, Arthur is listed as 5, but his N.O. birth record gives the date 3/25/1856, making him 23 or 24. Victor is listed as 10, but his N.O. birth record gives the date 8/11/1858, making him 11 or 12. There are no N.O. birth records for Charles (age 3), Violate (age 4), and Louisa (age 16, born in Switzerland according to census), and Eugène (age 19). Inclusion of those five children "fills the gap" in the impressive record of births by Marie Victoire, so it is conceivable that they are her children. It's also possible that she took a trip back to Switzerland, where Louisa was apparently born.

      Marie Victoire's maiden name is listed as Hentzelin on her marriage license, but her name is listed in a variety of ways on the birth records of her children: Angelin, Angeline, Ondelslein, Henzerling, Henzenlen. (These names were listed in the index of births. So far I (Jeff Vitter) haven't checked the actual birth records. JSV 7/2000)

    Notes 
    • There was confusion between Alfred's name and his father's and brother's name (Auguste) on his marriage license. Just below the middle of the marriage license, it states, "Whereas, the above bounden Auguste Nicolas Vitter has applied to John L. Laresche, Third Justice of the Peace for the Parish of Orleans, and has obtained from him a License to Marry Miss Marie Hofeline." "Auguste" is a typo, which should read "Alfred".

      Alfred's character witnesses on the marriage license were Auguste Arthur Bohné (an in-law) and Albert D. Hofeline (brother-in-law). Witnesses included Auguste Vitter, Hypolite Vitter, and Albert D. Hofeline.
