Lula Longstreet, courtesy of Georgia Life. Since I am fascinated by all things General Longstreet, I have spent some time researching information about his children. I’m not sure how much interest others have in this aspect of his life, but I thought I would share some pictures I have found. I hope others will share anecdotes or information they may know as well. Louise Longstreet Whelchel, nicknamed Lula by her family, was General Longstreet's youngest child. Born in Flynt, Michigan in 1872, Lula married Jasper Esten Whelchel and had several children. General Longstreet died in her house in Gainesville in 1904. Lula is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery located in Washington, DC. Her headstone reads: Louise Longstreet Whelchel. 1872 - 1957. Daughter of Lt. General James Longstreet, CSA. In Loving Memory. Lula was named for her mother, Maria Louisa Longstreet. She was born while her mother was visiting her sister in Michigan. I have always found it a bit odd that Mrs. Longstreet traveled from New Orleans to Michigan (by steamboat) when she was so heavily pregnant. As far as I can tell, the General did not accompany her on the trip.
