Submitted by Jim and Jana Webre
Webre, Joseph L., D. D. S., Macheca building, New Orleans, was born at
Donaldsonville, Ascension parish, La., April 16, 1885; son of Dr. Theo. S.
and Cecile (Bouchre) Webre, both of whom were natives of St. James parish,
La. The father was for many years a practicing dentist of the city of
Donaldsonville, and was also interested in planting. He passed away in
1898 and the mother in 1910. Seven children were born to the parents,
namely: Berthele, Irma, S. A. Webre, a practitioner of dentistry at
Joseph L., Bertha, Cecile, Theo. L., also in dental practice at
Donaldsonville. Joseph L. Webre, in the course of his academic and
professional education, graduated from high school in the city of his birth
and later attended the University of Tennessee, graduating with the degree
of D. D. S. in the class of 1897. Soon after the completion of his
professional studies the young doctor began practice as a dentist at
Gonzales, Ascension parish, and during the ensuing 5 years remained at that
location. At the expiration of that time, however, he found it desirable
to move his offices to Donaldsonville, where he was in practice about 7
years. In 1909 he went to New Orleans for a term of 2 years as instructor
in the Louisiana State college of dental surgery, following which he
established himself as a dental surgeon in the city of New Orleans, where
he has since remained in practice, finding it necessary to give his
undivided attention to the calls of his profession. Dr. Webre affiliates
with the Roman Catholic church, and is a member of Donaldsonville lodge No.
1153, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks; the Redmen fraternity, and
Independent Order Odd Fellows, all of his fraternal memberships being at
Donaldsonville. June 8, 1904, Dr. Webre was married to Miss Mattie J.
Keating, daughter of Joseph M. and Sarah (Boudreaux) Keating, all natives
of Donaldsonville, La. Mrs. Webre's father is a commercial salesman, and
makes his home in New Orleans. Dr. and Mrs. Webre have 1 child, Dorothy
Marie, by name.
