  • Name Jean Ferréol Artigues  [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
    Name Ferréol 
    Notes 
    • The Vitter Family and the Artigues Family are related through two links: Ferréol Artigues (1852-1914) had a daughter (Marie) Berthe Artigues, who married Albert L. Vitter Sr. (Jeff Vitter's grandfather). In addition, Jean Artigues (1851-1890) married Marie Louise Cathalongne, daughter of Marie Louise Vitter Cathalongne, who was Albert L. Vitter Sr.'s great aunt. For example, Jeff Vitter and Albert Artigues III are fourth cousins by both relationships.

      Jean Artigues's death record in 1890 indicated that he was born in Salies du Salat in Haute-Garonne (61), between St. Gaudens and Toulouse. The genealogy notes from Jean Jacques Artigues and his daughter Blanche Artigues Johnson, written originally around 1935 and provided recently by Bert Artigues, list the lineage of Artigues from Salies du Salat. Several members emigrated to New Orleans during the last half of the 1800s.

      The 1920 and 1930 census records for Bertrand Artigues indicate that he emigrated in 1898 to the U.S. In the 1930 census, Bertrand has a large family and as well has living with him his nephew Maurice Artigues Sr., niece Louise Artigues, and sister-in-law Anna Delord. Artigues descendants recall discussions by Maurice and his wife Eran LeBlanc that the family came from near Lourdes, France, which is about 42 miles west of Salies du Salat. The precise home seems to be Salies du Salat. Bert Artigues sent a copy of the document settling the estate of Marie Audoubert (Bert's first cousin, once removed) in Salies du Salat in 1975.

      When she was nearing death, Eran LeBlanc Artigues (widow of Maurice Artigues Sr.) left a note with her daughter Jo Mary Artigues that included information about her ancestors and Maurice Artigues Sr.'s ancestors. In the note, she wrote that Maurice Sr.'s parents were Louis Jean Artigues and Marie Lalanne, and that his grandparents were Jean Artigues and Marie Louise Cathalongne. However, it appears from the detailed notes of Jean Jacques Artigues and Blanche Artigues Johnson that Maurice Sr.'s natural grandparents were instead Jean François Baptiste Artigues and Marie Josephe Soubiran, who stayed in France when their sons Louis Jean Artigues and Bertrand Jean Artigues emigrated to New Orleans. It is natural to suppose that when Louis Jean Artigues emigrated to the U.S. in 1900 he was taken in by Marie Louise Cathalongne (the widow of John, who was a first cousin of Jean François Baptiste Artigues), and for that reason Louis's children Maurice and Louise and their descendants thought of Marie Louise Cathalongne as the grandmother of Maurice.

      There is some uncertainty as to the father(s) of Jean Artigues (born in 1851, husband of Marie Louise Cathalongne) and Joseph Artigues (born around 1853). In the 1880 census, Marie Artigues, age 58 (not very legible), is listed as living with Jean Artigues and his family. This is likely Marie Pugibet, wife of Louis Artigues. Jean and Joseph are listed as brothers on the 1880 census, living at Jean's house at 495 St. Ann. Joseph's wedding certificate lists Louis Artigues and Marie Pugibet as his parents, which would make them the parents of Jean as well. Marie is listed as Jean's aunt on the 1880 census, but it is probably a mistake. Marie is probably Marie Pugibet and (by the above hypothesis) Jean's mother.

      The Artigues family tomb in St. Louis Cemetery #3 on Esplanade Avenue near City Park in New Orleans contains the following individuals listed in their records for Square 1, Fol. No. 94, Lot 29, contact Mrs. Lucille Martin:

      Joseph (or Josephine) Ferran (1871-1897) (unknown relation, but curiously Jeff Vitter's maternal grandmother was a Ferran, and his paternal grandmother was an Artigues),
      Child of Mrs. A. Artigues (stillborn 2/7/1900),
      Widow of Louis Artigues (Marie Pugibet) (1821-12/4/1904),
      Child of Mrs. Artigues (stillborn 1/18/1914),
      Ferréol Artigues (1852-7/15/1914),
      Child of Mrs. John Artigues (stillborn 10/26/1916),
      Mrs. Emma Langhetee (1878-1/11/1921) (transferred later to another tomb),
      Widow of John Artigues (1855-1921),
      Louis M. Artigues (1874-1/16/1924),
      Child of Mrs. Albert Artigues (stillborn on 2/5/1930),
      John L. Artigues (1892-5/3/1934),
      Albert Artigues (1975-3/26/1935),
      Widow Adel Artigues (1883-6/30/1937),
      Camille M. Artigues (1886-8/27/1947),
      Josephine Artigues (1877-5/11/1964),
      Albert J. Artigues (1908-7/23/1980),
      Dorothy M. Artigues (1927-4/4/1989)

      The dates are probably burial dates, since they differ from some known deaths by a couple days, and the birthdates are approximate, based on the indicated age at death. All these people, with the exception of Joseph Ferran and Dorothy Artigues, are listed in the family tree. Al Artigues III thinks Dorothy is the mother of Lucille Martin.

      Another Artigues family tomb lists the following individuals:

      Josephine Delord (4/8/1904),
      Pierre Delord (1/27/1909),
      Jean M. Armaguac (1/17/1910),
      Eugenie Delord (4/4/1919),
      Louise J. Artigues (10/3/1925),
      Louise Delord (12/2/1926),
      Anna Armaguac (12/24/1930),
      Child of Mrs. R. Artigues (11/13/1932)
      Jean M. Delord (5/9/1935)
      Anna Delord (10/4/1942)
      Bertrand Artigues (10/14/1951),
      Josephine D. Artigues (8/23/1952),
      Fernand J. Artigues (4/29/1953),
      Alcee B. Artigues (6/9/1975),
      George Louis Artigues (2/7/1979),
      Colma Marguette Linden Artigues (5/14/1979)
      Bertha M. Artigues (8/16/1983),
      George Artigues, Jr. (6/24/1985),
      Myrtle R. Artigues (1/13/1988).

      There were several other Artigues in New Orleans who are not listed in the family tree but may be related. Some examples from the New Orleans index of births and marriages: Jean Marie Artigues and Agnes Ayloth had children Josephine on 4/15/1858, Henry Edouard on 6/9/1861, and Blanche Anna on 5/4/1863. Jean Marie Artigues (26 years old) and Jeanne Bordes (26 years old) were married on 4/15/1873 and had children Marceline on 9/1/1870, Jean Marcelin on 3/13/1878, Marie Julie on 3/15/1880, Euphrasie Francoise on 7/8/1884, and Jean Marie on 10/26/1890. (The age of the second Jean Marie indicates that the two cannot be the same.) Pierre Artigues and Madeline Diekmann had son Alfred on 3/11/1895. Marie B. Artigues (18) married Charles Bordes (21) on 4/8/1891.

      There are two Artigues-Dutrey connections in the family tree: Jean Jacques Artigues (age 34) married Euphrasie Marie Dutrey (29) on 9/15/1904, and Albert Jules Dutrey married Catherine Lalanne, sister of Marie Lalanne, who married Louis Jean Artigues.

      There have been Artigues living in the San Francisco area for over 125 years. There was a large Basque population in San Francisco, and perhaps that branch of the Artigues family is from the Basque region, which is very close to Salies du Salat and Lourdes, France. Ray and Irene Artigues are living there today or very recently. The names of those living there in 1880 include Louis, Marie (wife), Frances, Louise, Evangeline, Jennie, John, Marius, Achille, Adele (wife), and Emile. According to the 1880 census, all but the children were born in France (or Belgium in the case of Adele). It's interesting to note that Louis Artigues, born in 1830 in France, was working as a butcher in 1880 in San Francisco, the same time that Ferréol (Jeff Vitter's great grandfather) was working as a butcher in New Orleans.

      There's a Jesuit priest Fr. Ramón Artigues Servient (or Sirvent) (1902-1936) , martyred July 20, 1936 in Lérida, Spain during the Spanish Civil War. He is being considered for beatification (a preliminary step toward sainthood).

      "Artigues" is said to mean "clearer of the forest" in French. According to ancestry.com, the name Artigues comes from Catalan to mean topographic name for someone who lived on a patch of land newly broken up, Cat. artiga (of uncertain, possibly Celt. origin). There are places in the provinces of Biscay and Barcelona named with the pl. form of this word, and both may have contributed to the surname. [Artigues Family Tree X.FTW]
