Lucien A. Guilbeau


The gravesite of Lucien A. Guilbeau of the Yellow Jackets Battalion Louisiana Infantry and the Consolidated 18th Louisiana Infantry in St. Peter Catholic Cemetery, Carencro, LA.  Lucien was mortally wounded in the battle of Mansfield in April 1864 and died a few weeks later.  Evidently after the war someone from his family retrieved his remains from a burial site in Mansfield and reburied them in Carencro.
