"A citizen of the United States can wear no greter badge of honor than the distinction of having served the government in the memorable four years of war between the states. It is a sacred famiy inheritance of renown, to be prized like a jewel by all future dexcendants and kept bright and untarnished by other acts of valor, patriotism and loyalty in the interests of free government. Even in this day when there are many of the old soldiers living, no one can see one of them dressed up in his faded uniform without feeling a glow of pride and without showing him studied deference. But the ranks of the old phalanx are fast going down before the only foe that they canot meet, and ere long none will be left to recount the actual experiences of that memorable four years of sanguinary history. In the meantime, while they are still with us, let us pay them suitable honor for their sacrifices, patriotism, gallantry and sufferings. One of these honored veterans is Capt. Schuyler La Tourette, one of the well known agriculturists of Wabash township, Fountain county, and one of our worthiest pioneer citizens, he having spent his useful and commendable life in this vicinity, laboring for its geneeral development while advancing individual interests. He grew up amid pioneer conditions when this part of the country was wild and settlers were few and he has lived to see the wonderful transformation that has taken place...
...Captain La Tourette grew to manhood on the home farm, where he found plenty of hard work as a boy...On August 11, 1862, he enlisted in Company H, 63rd Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and he was soon made first lieutenant, and later, for meritorious services, was promoted to captain of this company, in which capacity he served until the close of the war, in the Army of the Cumberland, participating in the campaigns and battles with Sherman as far as Atlanta, then returned, having taken part in a number of important engagements, including Resaca, Atlanta, Nashville and others, in all of which he bore himself with the gallantry and bravery of the true American soldier. He had the confidence of his men and superior officers and won the praise of all for his commendable conduct on all occasions, never shrinking from his duty no matter how arduous or dangerous. He was mustered out of the service at Knoxville, Tennessee, in November, 1864.
After his career in the army Captain La Tourette returned to the home place and here he has since led a quiet life in connection with tilling the soil and rasing live stock. He is the owner of an excellent farm of one hundred and sixty acres of rich, valuable land, most of which is under a high state of cultivation and all well improved. About his pleasant old home may be seen some fine old trees of the original forest. He has made a specialty of rasing Red Poll cattle and Shropshire sheep, which find a very ready market owing to their superior quality.
Politically, the Captain is a Republican of the Abe Lincoln type, but in county affairs he prefers to vote for the men best qualified, in his opinion, for the offices sought, and while he takes considerable interest in public affairs he has never been an office holder. He is an active member of Covington Post No. 4, Grand Army of the Republic, and fraternally he holds membership with the Masonic order and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.
Captain La Tourette was married in 1863 to Kate Cooper, daughter of John and Lottie (Scott) Cooper, a highly respected Ohio family who moved from that state to Fountain county, Indiana in 1854, locating on a farm in Troy township. One child was born to the subject (Schuyler) and wife: Fred, who married Mabel Cossey; they live on a part of the old place, on which are two sets of improvements, one being occupied by them, and the other by the Captain and his wife." - Fountain and Warren Counties, Indiana
The captain bought his land from Stephen Burnett, who fought the U.S. government during the Tecumseh Uprising in the Indiana territories and was given six sections of land for his part.
