Captain Jules Dupuy, age 82, native of New Orleans, and a resident of Minden for the past 34 years, died at his home here Saturday night after an illness of several months.

The funeral services were conducted at his late residence Sunday afternoon and burial was in the city cemetery. Rev. Father Reagan of Shreveport, rector of the local Catholic church, officiated. The six sons of the deceased were the pallbearers.

Captain Dupuy was a soldier of the Confederacy during the four years of the civil war, in the army of Northern Virginia under General Lee. He enlisted in New Orleans as a member of the Zouaves battalion, 5th Louisiana Infantry, and was attached to General Longstreet's corps. For a time he was in command of a detachment of men and gained the title of Captain. He was the last survivor of his command. Colonel Coppens was the superior officer of his command, and Captain Lange was the commander of his company. He was a participant in the battle of Seven Pines, and also fought in the seven days' battle around Richmond, and other engagements. He was a prisoner of war when the surrender came.

Captain Dupuy came to Minden in 1890 as manager of the Minden Compress Company, but retired several years ago on account of failing health. He was the father of 16 chihldren, eight of whom survive him. His wife was Miss Amelie Berthoulin of New Orleans. She died in 1917. He was a boyhood friend and companion of Paul Capdeville, former mayor of New Orleans and afterwards state auditor, and there was a striking resemblance in the features of the two men, although Captain Dupuy was smaller in satature than Mr. Capdeville.

The surviving sons and daughters are Charles, Jules L., and Arthur F., and Mrs. George Channell of Minden; S. A. and R. E. Dupuy of Shreveport; A. J. Dupuy of Bossier City, and Mrs. S. P. Dean of New Orleans.
