Colonel Felix LaBauve, originally from Vauziers, France, came to DeSoto County in 1836.  He was in the mercantile business and studied law, but was better known as the editor of The Phoenix, an early DeSoto County newspaper.  The Phoenix is now known as the DeSoto Times-Tribune, and has been in continuous publication since its founding.  Col. Labauve served several terms in the Mississippi Legislature and as Clerk of DeSoto County.  There is a Felix LaBauve Scholarship currently active at the University of Mississippi.
His former home pictured is now privately owned.  He is also honored with a monument in the Hernando Cemetery.

   Membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is open to any female 18 years of age or older, regardless of race or creed, who can prove direct lineage to a Patriot who participated in the American Revolutionary War between 1775 and 1783.  Questions about membership can be directed to Registrar Sandy Brent.
