    WIFE'S AIM TRUE

    WOMAN KILLS HER HUSBAND AND HIS BROTHER

    DOUBLE TRAGEDY IN ILLINOIS

    MISTOOK DRUNKEN PAIR FOR BURGLARS

    SHOT AS THEY BROKE IN DOOR

    Murphysboro, Ill., July 18.--Mrs. George Joubert shot and killed her husband and brother-in-law, Moses Joubert, whom she took for burglars early today.

    The Joubert family reside about five miles east of Ava. George and his brother, Moses, had been to that village and returning home in an intoxicated condition proceeded to break down the door which Mrs. Joubert had locked. The woman became frightened and supposing they intended to kill her, fired her husband's revolver.

    George married Lydia M. Sorrels on 4 Oct 1893 in Ora Township, Jackson County, Illinois. Lydia was born about 1874 in Illinois. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

  1. 2.  Louis JoubertLouis Joubert was born on 16 Feb 1841 in Saint-Athanase-de-Bleury, Iberville, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Québec (son of Moise Joubert and Julia Lavallée); died on 18 Dec 1919 in Decatur, Macon, Illinois; was buried on 20 Dec 1919 in Greenwood Cemetery, Decatur, Illinois.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: 26 Feb 1841, Saint-Athanase-de-Bleury, Iberville, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Québec

    Notes:

    According to Vernon DuBar, Louis Joubert and Emilie Bastien were married on 14 Apr 1864, and Louis Joubert's cause of death was "atrophic cirrhosis of the liver."

    DuBar also places Joubert as a Union soldier in Company I, 6th Illinois Cavalry. The National Park Service database confirms a Louis Joubert from Illinois in that unit, as does Find the Best.

    The 6th Illinois Cavalry fought at the Battle of Port Hudson (22 May 1863; 10,000 Union casualties, 7,500 Confederate casualties); the second Battle of Franklin (30 Nov 1864; 2,633 Union casualties, 7,300 Confederate casualties); the Battle of Nashville (15 Dec 1864; 3,061 Union casualties, 6,500 Confederate casualties); and the minor engagements the Second Battle of Memphis (21 Aug 1864) and the Battle of Okolona (22 Feb 1864).

    Thomas Shawcross adds further service details, at least some of which seem to have been obtained in correspondence with Vernon DuBar:
    JOUBERT, Lewis Private Ava Nov 19, 1861. Re-enlisted as Veteran. [PNH note: "Ava" presumably refers to the tiny town (pop. 654 in 2010) in northwest Jackson County, Illinois, about five miles west of the Joubert family farm.]

    JOUBERT, Lewis Veteran Jackson Co. Mar 30, 1864. Mustered out Nov 5, 1865.
    Further notes from Shawcross, possibly passed on from DuBar:
    [...] In researching this family, one must keep a very open mind as to how the surname was spelled. The surname was French, and the spelling of the name appears to have many variations. This is typical of many French surnames. It seems that Americans who were not of French descent were completely baffled by the French names and almost never able to spell them correctly.

    Illinois marriage record:
    JAUBER, LOUIS BASTIAN, EMILY 04/01/1864 / JACKSON

    Jul 1870 census Ora P.O., Killion Pct., Jackson, IL family 144
    In this record, the surname looks like INBART, but was probably JUBART. He is listed as b. France.

    Jun 1900 census Ora, Jackson, IL family 159. Listed as Louis JOUBART. Son George and family are family 160.

    Apr 1910 census Ora Twp., Jackson, IL family 165 listed as Louis SHUBAR.

    Discrepancy: The Jun 1900 census Town of Ora, Jackson, IL lists the birth date of Louis as Feb 1841. His death certificate says he was b. 16 Feb 1842 to Moses JOUBERT and Julia LEOVLYE. The informant was Mrs. Charles McCormick of Decatur, IL. She was his daughter Julia.
