BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL NOTE

Sabin J. Gianelloni, Sr., Italian immigrant from Corsica, began work as a clerk in a livery stable in Plaquemine, La. He married Julie Lefebvre in Jan. 1892 at St. John Catholic Church in Plaquemine. She was the daughter of Emile M. Lefebvre, owner of Longwood Plantation located across the Mississippi River in East Baton Rouge Parish, La. In 1892, Sabin, Sr., purchased one-fourth interest in the Longwood Plantation. In 1902, two years after Emile Lefebvre’s death, he and Julie bought the remainder of the property from the other heirs and became the sole owners of the 5,000-acre plantation, which included the sugar factory, sawmill, and store. They also bought the adjacent Burtville Plantation. The couple had three sons, Vivian, Lefebvre, and Sabin, Jr. All three joined in the operation of the plantation and sugar factory until 1925, when mosaic disease destroyed nearly all the sugarcane fields in Louisiana, and Longwood ceased its cultivation of cane and manufacturing of sugar. Prior to purchasing the remainder of the plantation, Sabin, Sr. also served on the Board of Commissioners for the Pontchartrain Levee District (1899, 1901). Sabin J. Gianelloni, Sr., died in 1934. While the mill remained idle, Sabin, Jr. experimented with syrup to improve quality. In 1937, the factory resumed operations as a syrup mill under the management of Sabin, Jr. As a producer, he served on the Louisiana Cane Syrup and Molasses Industry Advisory Board and as president of the Louisiana Syrup Association. In 1952, he discontinued operations at the mill and began a career as a beef producer. Sabin J. Gianelloni, Jr., died on October 18, 1977. Vivian J. Gianelloni was born in Oct. 28, 1892 at Longwood Plantation. In 1913, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the Audubon Sugar School, Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge. After completing his education, he went to Cuba to begin his career in the sugar industry at the Punta Alegre Sugar Corp. During World War I, he served as a lieutenant in the artillery. He returned to Cuba after his discharge and rejoined the Punta Alegre Sugar Corp. He served as vice-president for ten years before becoming president of the company, a position he held for fifteen years. Vivian died Nov. 13, 1957.
