116 Baptismal record shows name as "Jenaro Juan Gutierrez", a variation of name on birth certificate that is closer to anglicized form of name he used most of his life, Henry John Gutierrez.

Orphaned at an early age. He had very little education, was a hard worker, always having a horse and a couple of mules. He did stray work and tried hard to give his children what he was so deprived of. He spoke several different languages.

According to Thelma Gutierrez, he moved from New Orleans to the Mississippi Gulf Coast as a teenager, with the DeLamare family. He trained and took care of horses for Jefferson Davis at Beauvoir.

On August 22, 1906, The Daily Herald (Biloxi, Miss.) reported: "Henry Guitterrez [sic], who for a number of years has been identified in Biloxi with the wood and ice business, is making preparations to enter into the coal business also on a substantial scale.  Mr. Guitterrez has a yard on the railroad to the west of the freight depot on which he has erected sheds and is putting in a large wagon scale, the second one in town.  Both soft coal and anthracite will be handled."

Issued license by U.S. Dept. of Commerce and Labor to operate steamboats in the district of Galveston, Texas for the period May 1913-May 1918.

He began Henry J. Gutierrez Co. in 1906 at corner of railroad and Bohn St., dealing in retail/wholesale coal, ice and, in the early days, wood for stoves. In 1920, he renamed the business City Delivery Co. and moved to the corner of the railroad and Delauney St. (present-day George Ohr St.).

Entered retail ice business in 1916. H.J. Gutierrez and Son delivered ice for Biloxi Artesian Company. Superintendent of operations for Glacier Refrigeration Corp. on Magnolia Street (north of railroad), built in 1923.

Henry John and his sister, Rachel (born Raphaela), were separated at a young age. He grew up in New Orleans, and she in Biloxi. They found each other by accident as adolescents. I have not determined how she came to be in Biloxi or found any evidence of her life in Biloxi.

Gerald Blessey recalls spending lots of time with H.J. Gutierrez, learning to play poker from him during the summers at Ramsey Springs, where he was known as "Uncle Henry."

118 Baron Philippe Mius d’Entremont
Pubnico is located in what was called, before the Expulsion, Cape Sable, which, even at the beginning, around 1614, had as its center what is now Port La Tour, called then Port Lomeron, David Lomerson having here a trading post, dealing with fur and fish. Charles de Biencourt, who was at the head of the small group of Frenchmen of what was then Acadia, comprising the south-western part of the peninsula, died around 1624. In 1631, Louis XIII named as Governor of Acadia, Charles de La Tour, who had been a faithful companion of Charles de Biencourt. It is then that the name of Port Lomerson was changed to Port La Tour. He was named Governor of Acadia again in 1651, while in France, from where he came back, bringing with him Philippe Mius d’Entremont, who was to be his Major. It is Philippe Mius d’Entremont who was to be the founder of Pubnico.
In 1653, Charles de La Tour gave to Philippe Mius d’Entremont the choice to settle wherever he would like. He chose what was then known to the Indians as Pobomcoup, meaning "a place where holes have been made through the ice to fish." Charles de La Tour built the place into a barony, the first ever constituted in Acadia, and the second in all of Canada. He gave to Philippe Mius d’Entremont the title of Baron. The center of the barony was located on the east side of the harbor, not far from its head.
It was in this same year, 1653, that Philippe Mius d’Entremont came to live here with his wife, Madeleine Helie and their daughter Marguerite, who was born in France and was to become the wife of Pierre Melanson, the founder of Grand-Pre. It is here that were born Philippe Mius d’Entremont’s three sons, Jacques, Abraham and Philippe, and Madeleine, the youngest of the family.
We know very little of Philippe’s life at the Barony until 1671. The census of that year lists his family names and livestock of 26 horned cattle, 29 sheep, 12 goats and 20 pigs on six acres of land under cultivation.
In 1675, a crew of Dutchmen landed and invaded Pubnico and took possession of Philippe’s riches. He left shortly thereafter. In 1670 after Acadia became under French domain once again, he was appointed the King’s Attorney General of Acadia, an office and title he was to hold until his retirement. In this position, he was to travel as an aide to the governor; and that is why he did not stay long at the Barony, and in 1678, we find him in Port Royal with his family.
In 1679 Philippe is found at Beaubassin (Amhurst) where Michel Le Neuf, Sieur de la Vallire resided. In 1684 Philippe was again at Port Royal, since Francis Perrot was named governor and chose Port Royal as his residence. In 1687, Philippe retired to Grand Pre where his daughter, Marie Marguerite and her husband, Pierre Melanson (brother to Charles) was living.. This couple were the founders of Grand Pre in 1680. It is here Philippe died in 1700. His wife had died about 1670.
It was his eldest son Jacques who built at the center of the barony the manor house, which stood till the time of the Expulsion. It is here that he brought up his family. The Barony of Pobomcoup was devastated and burned to the ground by the English in September of 1758. As to Abraham, although he had a large family, his children did not leave any descendants. Jacques’ descendants dropped the name Mius, to keep only as a surname the name of d’Entremont.
The youngest son, Philippe kept only Mius as his surname and is the ancestor of the Mius family, now spelled Muise or Meuse, which was the real patronymic or family name. He married two Micmac Indian wives, both of whom seem to have been given the name of Marie. He established himself at first on the eastern shore of what is now the Bay of Barrington. His oldest son Joseph is the father of the Acadien Mius family of today. All of his other children integrated into the Micmac tribe leaving Joseph to take residence in Pobomcoup.

123 Became Second Baron de Saint-Castin around 1666 D'ABBADIE, Jean-Jacques II (I1656)
124 Because her husband was a Civil War veteran, when he died she was entitled to live in the cottages at the Jefferson Davis Soldiers’ Home (now part of the Beauvoir property) on the beach in Biloxi and was one of the last to die there. She and her brother, William G. Summerlin, died hours apart and were laid out together at the funeral home.

Lived in Theodore, Alabama during the Civil War.

According to one source, Mary Ann was a slender, fine-featured woman with long hair that she wore in plaits. Her voice was soft and she possessed kindness, warmth and gentleness. She was immaculate in her personal appearance and in her housekeeping.

133 BLAISE JUILLET and "The Expedition of DOLLARD"

When his project had received "the approbation and agreement of those in command", Dollard presumably spent part of the winter making his preparations,recruiting volunteers and laying in supplies "for ye whole summer", Lambert Closse,CHARLES LE MOYNE and Pierre Picote de Belestre would have liked to join him if Dollard had agreed to "defer the enterprise until after the seeding"; but Dollard refused, since he would have to give up "the honor of being in command."

The departure was set for 19 April. Hardly had the canoes left shore on the appointed day when cries were heard coming from the Ile Saint-Paul, opposite Montreal. Hastening there, Dollard's troop forced a party of Iroquois Indians to scatter into the woods, but they were too late to save the three Frenchmen who were the victims of this attack: Nicolas Duval had been killed and his companions, Blaise Juillet and Mathurin Soulard, had been drowned while trying to escape from the enemy. Dollard seized the Iroquois canoe, took Duval's body back to Ville-Marie, and probably attended his funeral the next day. A few years ago a monument was erected on the Outaouais (Wisconsin) River at the place where this heroic combat took place." JUILLET, Blaise dit Avignon (I2295)
