The long life of Mrs. Ludivine Hattria drew to a close shortly after
nightfall on Tuesday. For weeks her condition was such that her death was not
unexpected at any time. She lived far beyond the years of the average person
and was one of Louisville's oldest residents.
Mrs. Hattria's maiden name was Ludivine Menegay and she was born in
Mandeau, Department of Doubs, France, August 15, 1821. She came with her
parents to America in 1848, during the time of the up-rising against the
royalty of Europe. The family passed through Paris at the time Louis Philippi
was forced from the throne of France. They came to Louisville which at that
time was largely made up of French people, and Mrs. Hattria lived here for
sixty years. There were seven children in the family and all have passed away
save Louis E. Menegay, of Louisville. Joseph Hattria, husband of the
deceased, was killed in the old Star Mill at Louisville, 55 years ago. He was
caught in the fly wheel of the engine, and his life was crushed out. For
many years Mrs. Hattria resided with her son, Charles Hattria, who provided
every comfort and care for her. He is the only living child of a family of
Funeral services will be held at St. Louis Catholic church at 9 o'clock
sun time, Friday morning, and will be conducted by Rev. Francis Senner.
Burial will be made in the Catholic cemetery.
